President Trump and GOP lawmakers watched “The Greatest Showman” Friday night at Camp David, where they are huddling to discuss their 2018 agenda. 

Chief of staff John Kelly revealed on Saturday that the president and members of Congress watched the movie, which tells the story of P.T. Barnum’s creation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also confirmed the screening. 


Kelly said that he initially thought that he would have to “suffer through” the film, but was, in fact, surprised by how much he liked it. 

Trump and a group of Republican lawmakers are spending the weekend at Camp David, the presidential retreat in northern Maryland, where they are planning their agenda for 2018.

A number of Cabinet officials also joined the retreat on Saturday, where Trump helmed a press conference firing back at the author of a new tell-all book about his administration.
