At 8:28 a.m. pool picked up with POTUS motorcade on S. Ocean Boulevard along the Atlantic en route to Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.


Pool did not see POTUS but he tweeted as we rolled:

“Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media.The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it.”


Saturday morning joggers and walkers dotted the ocean-side sidewalk. A man walking his dog stood in salute of the motorcade with his hand over his heart and the ocean behind him. Spotted Air Force One as we passed Palm Beach International airport.

Fellow poolers noted we drove north through Palm Beach across a different bridge than what has been the typical motorcade route from Mar-a-lago.



The fleet pulled into Trump International Golf Club at 8:51 a.m. Pool vans did not follow into the club. We will be idling across the street in a library parking lot.

Trump tweeted again as he pulled into the club.

“Will be having many meetings this weekend at The Southern White House. Big 5:00 P.M. speech in Melbourne, Florida. A lot to talk about!”
