Your pool dropped off POTUS at Mar-a-Lago at 2:04 pm. An interesting ride over... additional context provided by co-pooler Emily Cochrane from The New York Times.
At one point a man in a red van attempted to cut into the motorcade. Local law enforcement pulled over the vehicle, where the driver made obscene gestures and screamed several expletives. A few minutes later your pooler saw a very small group (2-4) of protestors stood in front of the bridge leading to Palm Beach. Your pooler saw one holding a sign that said Don the Con man. Just feet away a group of 10 supporters waved various signs and flags toward the motorcade. Most were homemade.
Heres a sample of the messages:
I support Pres. Trump bigly President Trump, with red and blue hearts next to it. A professional printed sign of the President beaming.
About half of the supporters were wearing Make America Great Again hats or American flag apparel.
Travel/photo lid called at 2:12 pm.
Have a great day,
