President Donald Trump hasn’t been in office even 10 days and is already scheduling his first vacation to start this coming Friday. He will be taking a trip to his Palm Beach club at the Mar-a-Lago resort and stay there for the entire weekend.
The Federal Aviation Administration issued the notice for flight restrictions that will stay in place the entire length of his stay, starting on Friday, Feb 3. and ending on Monday, Feb. 6.
Trump apparently is in need of some much-needed relaxation time, and good weather. Currently, temperatures in Washington D.C. sit around the upper 30’s, while Palm Beach is expected to have clear and sunny skies, with temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s.
President’s taking time off is nothing new – but this soon in his presidency? It’s almost unprecedented. What’s perhaps even more disturbing about the news is that Trump used to complain about President Obama taking time off to play golf – a favorite thing to do among past presidents. He also stated that he would
What’s perhaps even more disturbing about the news is that Trump used to complain about President Obama taking time off to play golf – a favorite thing to do among presidents. He also stated in the past that he would rarely, if ever, take vacation. That’s one campaign promise he’s already breaking. Not to mention a whole host of other ones.
Trump is likely to take major heat for this. The nation is up in arms right now protesting his recent immigrant order banning entry of even legal American residents from Muslim speaking countries.
Washington state just announced a major lawsuit over the executive order. Trump is also expected to name his Supreme Court nominee in the coming days – and Democrats are promising to filibuster anyone he names in order to make a statement for how Republicans treated President Obama’s pick.
People need to show up at his resort to protest. They might not be allowed inside, but they can stand outside the gates. Trump’s club, where he holds “charity events” in the area, is also a good location to go and protest at. It’s located at 1100 S Ocean Blvd, directly along the Palm Beach coast.
Long story short – Trump has his hands full. And, he’s taking a vacation. People need to let their voice be heard, letting the new president know that taking time off just a few weeks into the presidency is just unacceptable. It’s just hard to believe, really.
