West Palm Beach, FL – President Donald Trump will spend Easter weekend at the White House in Washington D.C.
This will be Trump’s seventh trip to the White House since taking office in January.
Mr. Trump departed Palm Beach International Airport at 4:20 p.m. and arrived in Washington D.C. around 6:35 p.m. He’s expected to leave Washington sometime Sunday night, according to a notice of temporary flight restrictions posted by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Road closures around Mar-a-Lago tied up traffic earlier in the day, almost making the President and the First Lady late for their scheduled flight.
The First Family is expected to attend Easter Service at the Washington National Cathedral. The interfaith service is an Easter tradition for new presidents and is hosted by the Episcopal parish.
After church, Trump is expected to play 18 holes at Lake Presidential Golf Club in Upper Marlboro, MD, with son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Other than celebrating the Easter holiday, it’s unclear what else is on the agenda for the First Family’s weekend. The President plans on being back in Mar-a-Lago in time for his 8 a.m. tee time Monday morning at Trump National Golf Club.
In the 80 days of the Trump Administration, presidential travel away from his Mar-a-Lago estate has cost U.S. tax payers over $21 million.
The president’s repeated trips to the White House has caught the attention of government watchdogs and Democrats. A widely reported estimate sets the cost to taxpayers at over $3 million for each weekend spent in the nation’s capital.
