Subject: In-town pool report #3: Departing golf club



Motorcade pulled out of Trump National Golf Club at 2:10 p.m. The president was there for roughly four hours. The White House has not provided any info on his activities, but NBC News cameras captured the president on the course, per this tweet: >https://twitter.com/KellyO/status/1281963164993814528< (applewebdata://06CADC87-C0AA-48A5-82C5-2D9C5A1CF924/%3Ehttps://twitter.com/KellyO/status/1281963164993814528%3C)

A mix of roughly 20 supporters and protesters gathered outside the entrance to the golf club to greet the motorcade. The scene was quite spirited while pool waited for the president to depart.

One supporter was particularly animated, repeatedly clapping and chanting “keep America great” and “four more years.”

Protesters at one point chanted “136,000 dead, bounties on our soldiers’ heads.”

There were a few new signs added to the mix. One read “I beg your pardon I want you out of the Rose Garden.” Another banner said “Putin’s Apprentice.” One sign said “130K deaths.”

A Jeep drove by with an American flag and a Trump 2020 flag. It made several loops up and down the road outside the property, slowing down each time it passed.

Law enforcement walked over just before the motorcade left to ask the demonstrators to back up from the road slightly. The group complied without issue.
