Donald Trump is in Florida to play golf this weekend, which puts him in uncomfortable proximity to the #MarchForOurLives protest scheduled in the wake of the Parkland shooting.


The president went out of his way to avoid the protesting children today, the Palm Beach Post reports, with his motorcade taking a detour.

The 1.5 mile "scenic" route to Mar-a-Lago allowed Trump, his wife and son to avoid the children and an pro-impeachment billboard erected by Democratic fundraiser and activist Claude Taylor.

The president is scheduled to stay at Mar-A-Lago and has "no public events" for the rest of the day.

It was unclear whether he would remain at Mar-A-Lago tomorrow to watch the Stormy Daniels interview with his wife Melania.
