PALM BEACH — President Donald Trump left town Sunday afternoon, but Palm Beach Daily News Society Editor Shannon Donnelly reports he’ll be back for Easter.

Trump observed Palm Sunday on the Tom Fazio-designed course at his Trump International Golf Club. He also visited the golf sanctuary on the five previous Sundays he visited Palm Beach as president.

Should Trump decide to attend church on Easter, there’s a good chance it’ll be the Episcopal Church of Bethsda-by-the-Sea.

Trump and Melania Trump were married there in 2005, with Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton among the attendees. The Trumps also visited Bethesda-by-the-Sea for Easter and Christmas eve services last year.

The last president to spend Easter in Palm Beach was John F. Kennedy in 1963.
