Trump in Palm Beach: Late-night arrival begins 9th Mar-a-Lago visit


President Donald Trump arrived at Palm Beach International Airport at about 11:25 p.m. Friday to begin his ninth visit to Palm Beach since taking office.

The president is scheduled to leave his Mar-a-Lago estate Saturday morning and fly out of PBIA at 8:45 a.m. for a six-hour side trip to Mississippi.

After attending the openings of the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, Trump is expected to return to PBIA on Air Force One at 2:45 p.m. Saturday and remain through Sunday afternoon.

Before arriving in Palm Beach Friday night, Trump spoke for about 90 minutes at a campaign rally in Pensacola. He touted the economy’s performance since he took office, blasted the media over some of its recent high-profile errors and endorsed Roy Moore — the Republican accused of initiating sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 — in next week’s special Senate election in Alabama.

The Pensacola rally was held in an arena about 15 miles from the Alabama state line. Pensacola and southwest Alabama are in the same media market.

Even before Air Force One had departed Pensacola for the flight to PBIA, some Trump supporters hoping to cheer on the presidential motorcade began gathering on Southern Boulevard on the West Palm Beach side of the bridge that crosses the Intracoastal Waterway to Palm Beach and Mar-a-Lago.

Since taking office in January, Trump has made eight visits to Mar-a-Lago totalling about 22 days. He’s also expected to return for Christmas, though the White House has not released any details.
