Trump has been eager to share the perks of the presidency since taking office two weeks ago. 
 
He hosted congressional leaders for a reception three days after his inauguration, and he’s invited a parade of business and union leaders in for meetings, which have included stops in the Oval Office. 
 
Trump is planning to spend the weekend at his Palm Beach, Fla., club before returning to Washington on Monday. 
 
He’s expected to attend a Red Cross gala at the club on Saturday before stopping on Monday at U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla.
