EARLIER STORY: After spending several days in Palm Beach for Easter with his family, President Donald Trump is set to leave Mar-a-Lago this afternoon to return to Washington, D.C.

The president has been in town since Thursday evening for his seventh trip to Palm Beach since taking office in January.

He spent much of Sunday celebrating Easter, first attending a service at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, then heading back to Mar-a-Lago for brunch and an Easter egg hunt.

Earlier in the morning, the president tweeted about several topics, wishing his following a happy Easter between messages about China and protests. Read more about his Easter morning Twitter activity.

As the president leaves Mar-a-Lago, drivers in the area can expect temporary road closures:

• Southern Boulevard from Mar-a-Lago to Palm Beach International Airport

• Interstate 95 where it meets Southern

• All other north-south roads that intersect with Southern along the motorcade route

Alternate routes: To travel north-south, take Military Trail or Florida’s Turnpike; to travel east-west, take Belvedere Road or Forest Hill Boulevard.

Stay with The Palm Beach Post throughout the afternoon for updates as the president leaves Palm Beach County.
