Saturday marked a day full of Presidential and Vice Presidential motorcades traveling back and forth across Palm Beach County.

For the first time since taking office, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are visiting Palm Beach at the same time.

Supporters gathering to watch the President's motorcade return from his golf course to Mar-a-Lago got the surprise of a lifetime Saturday afternoon.

A small group had lined up on Bingham Island with signs and flags. 

"We waved to him, the cars went by really fast, and we were just sitting down talking about the events of the day," said Valeria Bianco.

The long-time Trump supporter said no one expected what happened next.

Bianco said a member of the President's team came back, "And invited us to go to Mar-a-Lago," she said. "To get into a secret service van, get checked out, and go to Mar-a-Lago."

According to Bianco, she and six others were taken to a ballroom inside of the President's home.

"And then, lo and behold, our President appeared," she said.

The group posed for photos with the President as he thanked the group for the support.

"We stop everything to do what we're doing for President Trump and Vice President Pence, because we love this country and we love this administration, and we love what they stand for, and we want them to know that all the hard work that they're doing is not in vain," Bianco said. "Having said that, he acknowledged all of that, and we got to talk a little bit about that."

It was a 'thank you' Bianco said she never expected, but doesn't put past the President, who's been full of surprises.

"It was a lovely, lovely experience and I just hope it happens again and again,"  she said.
