President Trump tends to get heat from the left no matter what he does. If he’s working, he’s doing something they don’t like, and if he’s celebrating, he’s probably offending someone who doesn’t like the holiday. Unfortunately for the haters though, he’s in office and no matter how hard they try, it doesn’t look like they’ll be able to do anything about it.
The President seems to get an especially large amount of grief for visiting his own home in Florida when time permits. His visit to his own estates in at Mar-a-Lago should serve as a reminder that the President isn’t taking any money out of America’s pockets, he’s self-sufficient, and only working in his current position to serve Americans.
That seems to be exactly what Florida supporters were thinking of when they rallied on the streets in anticipation of the President’s arrival. The streets where the President was traveling were flanked by loving supporters who wanted to let the President know that despite his many enemies, he has many supporters as well.
Their gesture didn’t go unnoticed either. The supporters were out en masse, holding signs supporting the President’s pet projects, whipping up support for him when the President himself saw them. What they expected would just end up being a wave and a nod to show acknowledgment of their moral support ended up being a lot more. After the President made it to his “Winter White House,” and before he started celebrating:
The Palm Beach Post reports that about 20 minutes after the motorcade passed, two white vans returned and a man emerged with an invitation for the supporters to meet the president.
“About 20 minutes after President Trump’s motorcade passed over of the Southern bridge on its way back to Mar-a-Lago after golf on Saturday, a white van stopped near a group of supporters.
A man stepped out with an invitation that stunned the devoted sign-waiving crowd.
The president would like to meet with you at Mar-a-Lago.
‘It stunned me,’ said Mike Sims, of West Palm Beach. ‘I didn’t know what to think.’
Sixteen supporters piled into two white vans for a short drive across the bridge to the president’s private club. No one expected the 90-minute visit to the president’s “Winter White House.”
‘I was wearing baggy pants,’ bemoaned one supporter of the sudden invite — and the photo she had taken with Trump.
The group went through the usual security sweep by the Secret Service and then met with the president, who was still in his golf clothes and shoes.
He shook hands with the group near the pool and posed with each for photos. A White House photographer also shot pictures. The president gave a short history of Mar-a-Lago, built in the 1920’s by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and gave each a magazine about the estate.
Trump bought the dilapidated estate in 1985 and restored it. In 1995 he opened Mar-a-Lago as a private club, which now has about 500 members. Today, Mar-a-Lago has a spa, tennis courts, two pools, putting greens, several dining areas and bedrooms that are available only to members and their guests.
After the meet, greet and photo op, Trump asked his aides to show the group into his living room to see the Christmas tree, and outside, to view the helicopter. They were then invited into the ballroom for snacks: meatballs, watermelon, pigs in a blanket, spring rolls, thick chocolate chip cookies, iced tea and water.
Sims especially liked the water.
‘It was a regular water bottle except it didn’t say Zephyrhills, it said Trump,’ said Sims, who grabbed one as a souvenier [sic]. ‘It was just a fabulous experience. I will never forget it.’
Saturday’s impromptu visit was not the first. On March 18, seven Trump supporters who cheered the president as his motorcade passed were also invited to the estate. A day later, on his way out of town, the president stopped his motorcade and got out of his armored SUV to swiftly greet supporters.
Donald Tarca Jr. of Boynton Beach said the group was invited “not because we are famous or big donors but because we are members of a group called ‘The Trump Squad,’ a group of supporters who faithfully gather at the west end of the Southern Boulevard bridge to greet the president. Our motto is ‘See you at the bridge!’’
Tarca was at the bridge again on Sunday afternoon, waiting with the rest of the squad for the president to return from his golf club in West Palm Beach.
‘It was such an honor — a day to all us deplorables we will never forget,’ Tarca said. ‘We the people do matter.’”
Many people considered President Trump’s predecessor to be unqualified for the office of President because his citizenship was doubtful, however, what we should have been worried about the qualification of loving America. Obama made it clear time and again that he had disdain for American values and the people that held them. President Trump couldn’t be any more different, and he demonstrates it at times like this. Americans once again have a President that they can be proud of, because he is proud of us, and that’s how it should be.
