Trump wrote that he “never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country.”

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!

12:10 P.M.: President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will arrive at Palm Beach International Airport tonight to spend the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

The president’s eastbound motorcade may snarl traffic for South Florida Fair-goers heading west Friday evening on Southern Boulevard. Air Force One is expected to land at about 7 p.m.

TRUMP CAM: »  > Trump cam: Live view of Mar-a-Lago

The Town of Palm Beach is warning residents to expect significant traffic and delays today with lane closures on Okeechobee Blvd. between S. Flagler Drive and Parker Avenue in West Palm Beach. That's in addition to the closures around Mar-a-Lago that already are in effect with the pending arrival of President Donald Trump. 

Palm Beach Police are encouraging motorists to use the Flagler Bridge. 

The traffic alerts come on the heels of malfunctions on the Southern Boulevard Bridge early this morning. From about 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. there were on and off warnings about the bridge not working properly, and the town was advising residents to find an alternate route

>»»COMPLETE COVERAGE: President Donald Trump in Palm Beach

Road closures near Mar-a-Lago will continue until the president leaves on Monday afternoon or evening.

Before his visit, the president tweeted about the DACA deal that was presented to him yesterday. He described it as “a big step backwards.”

The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.....

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018

....countries which are doing badly. I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund....

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018

....Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. The Dems will threaten “shutdown,” but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
