After Billy Graham funeral, Trump, Melania to visit Palm Beach today


President Donald Trump will attend the Rev. Billy Graham’s funeral in North Carolina today, then arrive at Palm Beach International Airport this afternoon for his 14th Palm Beach visit since taking office.

First lady Melania Trump will accompany the president, according to a White House advisory.

After Graham’s noon funeral in Charlotte, N.C., Air Force One is scheduled to arrive at 3:45 p.m. at PBIA and Trump is scheduled to go straight to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

At Mar-a-Lago, Trump will host a 6:30 p.m. “roundtable with Republican National Committee supporters,” then speak at a 7:30 p.m. dinner for the RNC’s Spring Donor Retreat.

Trump spoke at the RNC donor event last year, making the brief trip down A-1-A to the Four Seasons Resort.

Trump is scheduled to return to Washington on Saturday afternoon to speak at the annual Gridiron Club dinner. A fundraiser for Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign was scheduled for Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago, but the event could be pushed to lunchtime to accommodate the president’s Gridiron appearance.
