The president is set to attend the Celebrate Freedom Concert in D.C. Saturday night along with Dr. Robert Jeffress, a controversial Southern Baptist pastor, who has publicly praised Trump.

"Getting [ready] to leave for tonight's Celebrate Freedom Concert honoring our GREAT VETERANS w/ so many of my evangelical friends. See you soon!" Trump tweeted Saturday.

According to his public schedule, Trump is set to depart Bedminster, N.J., where he's spending the weekend, just before 7 p.m. He's scheduled to arrive in Washington about 50 minutes later.

After the concert, Trump is set to department D.C. once again around 10 p.m. and head back to New Jersey to finish out his weekend getaway. 

In his first five months in office, Trump has frequently spent his weekends at his own properties, notably his private Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

Since Mar-a-Lago closed for the summer, Trump has tended to venture off to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster. On weekends that he remains in the District, he's gone out to his golf club in Sterling, Va., about 25 miles from the White House.
