The president visited Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., on Saturday and Sunday. Both days, protesters lined the streets as the presidential motorcade passed by, something that is common when Trump travels.

White House pool reporters noted that roughly a dozen protesters turned out on Saturday, carrying signs reading "You, Trump, are no John McCain," "RIP McCain — a hero" and "Treason Guilty Impeach."

The protesters also brought baby Trump balloons, like the large one flown over London during the president's trip to the United Kingdom earlier in the year.

On Sunday, a few more protesters met Trump upon his arrival at the golf club, holding signs that read “Putin’s Puppet," and "Resign." The protesters again brought baby Trump balloons.

While the president is often greeted by protesters when he travels, this weekend's events coincided with services for McCain.

Dozens of politicians past and present across political parties gathered at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, where multiple speakers praised McCain's character and took subtle swipes at Trump.

McCain was buried on Sunday at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Trump and McCain had a fraught relationship, with the Senate icon remaining one of the president's staunchest Republican critics even after his cancer diagnosis.

Trump drew criticism when he waited nearly 48 hours after McCain's death to issue a statement expressing "respect" for the late senator.
