Expect President Donald Trump to return to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach this weekend.
He’s scheduled to appear at fundraisers for the Republican National Committee and his 2020 re-election campaign. And the Federal Aviation Administration today sent out a notice to “expect VIP movement March 2-3” and airspace restrictions in the vicinity of Palm Beach. The notice will be lifted Sunday.
Trump was scheduled to headline a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago on Jan. 20 — the first anniversary of his swearing-in — but canceled to remain in Washington during a brief federal government shutdown.
The Jan. 20 event went on without Trump and raised about $5 million for the RNC and Trump’s campaign.
The RNC’s annual spring retreat for major donors is scheduled for Friday through Sunday at an undisclosed site in Palm Beach. Invitations to the event advertise an appearance by Trump, who spoke to the gathering last year at the Four Seasons Resort.
Aside from the RNC event, the Trump campaign has scheduled a Saturday fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago. Tickets start at $2,700 to attend a reception, with those who raise $25,000 getting two tickets to a dinner with Trump and $50,000 bundlers getting dinner tickets and a photo with the president.
Trump has made 13 visits to Mar-a-Lago since becoming president.
