Subject: Travel pool #5/back at Mar a Lago and a lid

The president is back at Mar a Lago. Arrived in a driving rain at 3:11 pm.

Travel/photo lid declared.

The motorcade stopped for a couple of traffic lights in Jupiter before getting on I-95 south. Traffic behind us was held back by a rolling roadblock of police so we had the southbound lanes to ourselves.

We hit heavy rain as we got to West Palm Beach and slowed somewhat. Water was pouring off the overpasses near PBI. Maybe a dozen drenched protesters were still on duty at the entrance to the bridge to MAL.

Signs spotted read "Trump 2020" and "We are Trumps Strong." A man woth a bullhorn repeatedly said "President Trump loves you" as the press vans were stopped waiting for the light to change. Ink on hand made signs was blurred from the rain.

Attached photos are at the start and end of the drive from Jupiter.
