*Subject:* *Pool report #2 - Arrival at Trump National, Va.*
At 10:55 - after a 34-minute motorcade ride passing otherwise oblivious traffic and through the EZ pass lane on the Dulles toll road & stopping at a few traffic lights -- POTUS & the pool has arrived at Trump National in Sterling, Virginia. One car in front of motorcade - unclear who was in it (but not Potus)- did appear to get a flat tire along the way and dropped out of the group along the toll road.
Per a WH spox, POTUS is here for lunch and meetings. There's a golf tournament taking place at the president's club - though again the pool did spot at least one person get in POTUS's car (not the president) in golf attire.
Also worth noting my Politico colleagues earlier this week did report Sen. Rand Paul suggested another round of golf may be needed to help convince him on the Senate's Obamacare repeal/replace bill. But no senators so spotted in motorcade or at the club. Here's that story.
Potus did take to Twitter this morning too to criticize Democrats on health care. Here's that post:
This is the 9th POTUS visit to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia, and according to the NYT's tracker of visits to Trump-branded properties & his 43rd day visiting at least one Trump property since inauguration.
Pool is holding in the tennis clubhouse.
