The motorcade departed Trump International Golf Club at 3:15 p.m., and deposited POTUS at Mar-a-Lago at 3:27 p.m.
The pool will return to the beachfront resort at 6:45 pm for what we expect will be our first collective glimpse of POTUS on this New Years Eve. Well keep you posted.
In the meantime, this from White House spokeswoman Helen Ferre:

*Readout of President Donald J. Trumps Lunch with Governor Rick Scott of Florida*

President Donald J. Trump had lunch today with Governor Rick Scott of Florida. The two leaders discussed ongoing hurricane recovery efforts, the need to improve the Nations aging infrastructure, and many other matters important to the people of Florida. President Trump spoke about the tax cut bill that he signed into law before the Christmas holiday and the economic growth it is already unleashing across the country. The President underscored the importance of Governor Scotts leadership in Florida, and the two indicated that they look forward to working together in the New Year.
