PALM BEACH — With President Donald Trump expected to visit his Mar-a-Lago Club this weekend and attend the annual Red Cross Ball there, demonstrators are planning to show up as well.
As of this morning, more than 1,000 people have signed up on Facebook to attend a Saturday “March to Mar-a-Lago for Humanity” from Trump Plaza in West Palm Beach to Bingham Island — the spot along Southern Boulevard where TV cameras set up to get shots with Mar-a-Lago in the background.
The march will conclude with a “silent disco protest ball” featuring glow sticks and flashlights instead of signs, organizers say.
Trump’s first weekend as president was marked by massive protest marches in Washington, D.C., and around the nation. His second weekend in office featured airport protests of his executive order halting refugee admissions and travel from seven nations.
