FAA flight restrictions originally indicated that Air Force One would land at Palm Beach International Airport around 6:15 p.m. Friday

Traffic, water and air restrictions went into effect at 8 a.m. around Mar-a-Lago.  

However, NBC News Politics tweeted Friday morning that with a possible government shutdown, a White House official said Trump will not go to Florida until a funding resolution passes.

FAA flight restrictions were issued on Monday for this weekend's visit.

They were revised Friday afternoon and new restrictions will be in effect Saturday morning.

The president was in town last weekend and departed for Washington, D.C. on Monday.

If he travels here on Saturday it will be the fifth time that President Trump has visited Palm Beach County since Thanksgiving.
