Spicer Confirms Trump Will Continue Going to Mar-a-Lago

Asked about President Trump’s weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago in Florida, Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the president will continue to visit his resort on the weekends.

On Monday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer appeared to confirm President Trump will continue to visit Mar-a-Lago on the weekends after a reporter asked if the president will “cut … back” his trips, given Trump’s concerns about the budget.

Spicer rejected the premise of the question: “I think that is a vast reach, to suggest that the president – presidents always travel.”

Spicer cited President George W. Bush’s travels to his ranch in Crawford.

He later confirmed: “The president will continue to go and travel.”

Spicer suggested the question from the reporter was a “shot,” because she compared Trump’s taxpayer-funded travel to much-publicized cuts that may occur to the Meals on Wheels program.

Spicer argued that only a portion of the Meals on Wheels program relies on federal spending, and said that while it is a “cute” example to bring up, the comparison is unfair.
