President Trump spends Easter weekend on Palm Beach

President Trump spends Easter weekend on Palm Beach

"I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done", said Trump in 2015.

"The late start in planning by the Trump White House points to a smaller and less ambitious Egg Roll than in previous years", the paper concluded.

Doing simple math and assuming Trump gets two terms as President (which, of course, isn't guaranteed), Trump has been to his clubs 19 times in 12 weeks. When pressed on the issue, he said he doesn't think most Americans care.

The congregation waved to the president as he left just before the end of the service. Obama didn't start playing golf until 100 days into his presidency.

Mar-a-Lago, nicknamed the "Winter White House", has been slapped with a total of 55 citations since 2014, which is as far back as the state's database goes. "It's just another example of his consistent efforts to exploit public office for private gain". "We will see what happens!"

McFarland said that an array of strategies were discussed when Chinese President Xi Jinping recently visited Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

Schooner goes on to explain why all of this matters: "This is a privately owned club that for all intents and purposes was just another golf property in Florida before, that nearly now is something that Americans immediately recognize".

Trump, in a dark suit and red tie, waved to photographers across the street from the church.

In other words, there's a very real sense in which Trump is splitting his time between two jobs: serving as president of the United States and acting as owner/host of Mar-a-Lago. "Presidents have always spent time with the affluent", he added. But maybe it will spur Congress to force something to be done about his taxes - maybe not right now, but maybe, you know, the next time. "It is kind of wonderful". Of course, the attention that follows the president also now encompasses Trump's property. Melania and the couple's son Barron reportedly could have used government transportation to meet the president in Washington, D.C., but the 4:44 P.M. departure may have conflicted with Barron's school schedule. "If anything", he says, "it's more important to know who's there because you don't have the usual protections and procedures that you have with the White House". And Mr Trump has vacillated about what his first policy priorities would be - shifting from healthcare to tax cuts and back to healthcare - which has most likely made it hard to plot a travel schedule that would give him a strategic advantage. "Now he's hit the mother lode, and he's not going to stop".
