NEW: Trump in Palm Beach two weekends in a row? FAA posts advisory


It looks like President Donald Trump is coming back to Palm Beach — this weekend.

The Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team issued an advisory that a temporary flight restriction will be in place for “VIP movement” beginning Friday, Feb. 10 through Sunday, Feb. 12. These advisories have proven to be early indicators that Trump is visiting the area.

Several media outlets have reported that Trump plans to meet with the prime minister of Japan on Friday on Washington, D.C. The pair then will board Air Force One for the two-and-a-half hour flight to Palm Beach County, where Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will spend the weekend at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and play a round of golf with the president.

The Japan Times reported that the prime minister and Trump will “discuss trade and security.”

The president and first lady just wrapped up a weekend in Palm Beach, during which the president played two rounds of golf and attended the 60th annual Red Cross Ball hosted at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday night.

Palm Beach County residents on this visit got their first look at how security will be handled with each presidential visit to the area — most notably, that the FAA flight restrictions effectively shut down Palm Beach County’s Lantana airport, and the Secret Service closed South Ocean Boulevard next to Mar-a-Lago to all but residents within in the roadblocks.
