Trump expected to spend Super Bowl weekend at Mar-a-Lago

The Federal Aviation Administration late Monday issued a VIP advisory for the area, which typically indicates presidential travel. The White House has not officially announced the trip.

This weekend's trip will be the president's first visit to his Mar-a-Lago Club since Thanksgiving.


Trump was expected to spend more than two weeks there over Christmas and New Year's, but scrapped his travel plans due to the partial shutdown that was triggered by his demand for border-wall money and lasted a record 35 days.

During the holidays, the president appeared to yearn for the comforts of his South Florida resort.

“I was in the White House all by myself for six, seven days,” he said at a Cabinet meeting on Jan. 2. “It was very lonely. My family was down in Florida. They were all — I said, ‘stay there and enjoy yourself.’ But I felt I should be here just in case people wanted to come and negotiate the border security.”

The president’s visit falls on Super Bowl weekend. Last year, Trump hosted a party at Mar-a-Lago for the championship game complete with college cheerleaders and a band.

The New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams in this year’s contest.

CBS will air an interview with Trump before the game.
