President Donald Trump, who has made seven weekend visits to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, shook things up a little last weekend by making his first presidential visit to his place in Bedminster, N.J.
Now it looks like the president might be contemplating a further departure from habit by visiting a non-Trump property on Mother’s Day weekend — the Camp David presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains.
The Palm Beach Post’s Kristina Webb, an indefatigable tracker of Federal Aviation Administration advisories, reports on a new FAA notice anticipating “VIP movement” around Camp David from Friday through Sunday.
Trump has yet to visit Camp David, which is a short helicopter ride from the White House.
The FAA also issued VIP restrictions around Camp David in March, but Trump ended up not going.
Recent presidents have varied in their usage of Camp David. Barack Obama spent all or part of 93 days at Camp David, George W. Bush spent 487 full or partial days there and Bill Clinton logged all or part of 173 days at the mountain getaway.
