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.
