Trump invites group of supporters into Mar-a-Lago estate

According to several aides and advisers, Trump told various associates that he preferred to keep fighting for his original executive order blocking refugees and visa-holders from majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. He also asked others about his Supreme Court nominee and topics on North Korea.

They yelled "We love you" and waved the Stars And Stripes as well as Trump flags during the brief encounter.

This trip will also make it his seventh visit to a Trump-branded establishment since his January 20 inauguration - all trips that can cost the public a pretty penny.

Trump flew out Sunday afternoon with New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft aboard Air Force One, but the presidential motorcade made a special stop on the way to the airport.

"I love golf, I think it's one of the greats, but I don't have time", then-President-elect Trump said during a December 2016 rally in MI. Conservatives met with the President this weekend at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, where Republicans are looking for Trump to finally close the deal on replacing Obamacare. The reticence may stem in part from criticism Trump has drawn for spending so much time golfing since he was sworn in, particularly after he harshly criticized Obama for the same thing. According to a pool report that day, "the White House shares that while at the Trump International Golf Club, he has had meetings and may play a few holes of golf". Trump has multiple homes, his adult children travel frequently, and his wife, Melania, and their son, Barron, live in New York City. "I'm not going to have time to go play golf". It wasn't until McIlroy spoke about the round to No Laying Up that the Trump Administration had to correct the record. Prior to this weekend, President Trump had spent 14 days in South Florida since his inauguration in January. The White House didn't confirm whether the president played golf during his almost four hours at the course.

Golf glove on President Donald Trump's left hand suggests he had more than "meetings and phone calls" at his golf course Saturday.

Eady said she will continue to show up outside of Mar-a-Lago to show her support whenever Trump is in town.

And before he ran for president, Trump would tweet about Obama's golfing.
