Optics be damned!
PALM CITY, Fla. —President Obama will be vacationing in South Florida this weekend, sources have confirmed for WPBF 25 News.
The president is expected to stay at the Florida National Golf Club, which is in Palm City and Port St. Lucie. Obama made a similar trip to the area in February of 2013.
Like last time, he’s expected to spend much of his time playing golf.
“That’s fantastic,” said Johanna Morphew of Port St. Lucie. “It’ll be nice to have him in town.”
“It’s good,” said Raphael Martinez of Port St. Lucie. “Get some attention. Get Port St. Lucie in the news.”
The White House has not confirmed the trip, but the Federal Aviation Administration has issued a Temporary Flight Restriction for the Palm City area for Saturday and Sunday.
A TFR restricts who can fly over the area and when. The TFR is for at least a 10-mile radius, a size usually reserved for only the president.
