‘Halloween is coming’: President Trump vows to return to ‘totally wild’ presidential schedule
President Donald Trump will return to his “totally crazy” presidential schedule, with a trip to his resort in Palm Beach, Florida, scheduled for Tuesday.
Trump is due to visit Mar-a-Lago at 9:30 a.m.
EST, a White House official said Thursday.
He is scheduled to be joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.
“This is going to be an incredible celebration of our country, a celebration of the people of this great country, and the American people will be treated to an evening of great entertainment,” Trump said Thursday in the White House Rose Garden.
The president, who was scheduled to return on Saturday for a trip through the Middle East, will spend two days on the East Coast, traveling to the U.K. and the Vatican.
The trip, scheduled to end at the White South Lawn, is Trump’s first overseas trip since he was sworn in as president in January.
The vacation comes at a time when Trump has been feuding with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and has been trying to ramp up pressure on China.
During his first 100 days, Trump has threatened to “tear up” the North American Free Trade Agreement, criticized Chinese President Xi Jinping and ordered a new investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russian officials.
The State Department and the White Senate are also investigating whether the president obstructed justice in firing former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy, former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
The new administration is also trying to work through the issue of whether Trump obstructed the FBI probe into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
