"Sen. McConnell says we're waiting for the President to articulate what he's for, so we can finalize a bipartisan deal. Well [Donald Trump] is wheels up to Mar-a-Lago at 4:30 tomorrow afternoon," Matt House tweeted after the press release was issued.

Lawmakers are pushing to pass a stopgap bill to fund the government before funding runs out.

The Republican-controlled House passed a funding bill Thursday night, which now heads to the Senate where Democrats have warned they have assembled the votes to defeat it. The Senate adjourned late Thursday without voting on the bill, and the chamber will reconvene at 11 a.m. Friday, giving lawmakers just 13 hours to hash out a deal.

Trump, meanwhile, is planning for an event Saturday marking the one-year anniversary of his inauguration at Mar-a-Lago, Bloomberg reported.

The event will be hosted by Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel and casino mogul Steve Wynn and will benefit Trump's presidential campaign and the RNC.

Trump has spent 121 days, exactly one-third of his presidency so far, at his own properties according to an NBC News counter.
