Trump headed to Mar-a-Lago for Easter weekend

Trump headed to Mar-a-Lago for Easter weekend

There are signs the Trump administration may begin using the helipad at President Donald Trump's Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago, for the Commander-in-Chief's transportation needs when he's at the so-called "winter White House".

Though the number is up from Trump's fifth trip to the area, when there were seven violations, it marks a drop in the number of violations from a trip in comparable length: When the president visited from February 17-20, there were 14 airspace violations. Some of Trump's supporters say ideological elasticity is a virtue for a president who took office with no practical foreign policy experience.

"Yes, I'll be here for Easter", he said at his Trump International Golf Course in West Palm Beach, Fla., according to The Palm Beach Daily News.

In comparison, former President Barack Obama didn't play his first round of golf until April 26th, 2009. Although Mr Obama did make up for this later, amassing 333 rounds of golf over his two terms in office, according to Mark Knoller, a CBS News reporter. "This was not something we knew was coming".

President Donald Trump is planning to spend Easter at Mar-a-Lago, after spending last weekend juggling diplomacy, missile strikes, and golf at his Florida club. "I don't think I'd ever see Doral again - I own Doral, in Miami".

O'Neil declined to comment Tuesday, and a Justice Department spokeswoman did not return a message seeking comment. He described the source as an intelligence official, not a White House official.

"I don't ever think that I'd see anything, I just wanna stay in the White House and work my ass off, make great deals, right?"

Nine planes breached the temporary flight restrictions seen each time Trump travels to Mar-a-Lago, the FAA said Monday.

"I don't ever think that I'd see anything", he added at the time.

Even as the situation in Syria grows more precarious, Trump has also worked to quell conflicts in other regions of the world. Who's gonna leave? I mean, who's gonna leave?' Mr Trump argued he should have been conferring with lawmakers instead.
