PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in West Palm Beach Friday evening.

They departed Joint Base Andrews around 4:45 p.m., and landed at Palm Beach International Airport shortly before 7 p.m.

From there, the President and First Lady will travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort on Palm Beach, the White House says.

Flight restrictions start Friday at 6 p.m., and run through Sunday at 10:30 p.m., according to the FAA.

In addition, road closures are now in effect on Palm Beach.

From now until Sunday, Feb. 3, all forms of travel, including pedestrian travel, will be prohibited on S. Ocean Blvd from S. County Road to Southern Boulevard. The travel restrictions will also extend eastward to the ocean.

The President was supposed to travel to Mar-a-Lago for Christmas and New Year's, but had to cancel because of the partial government shutdown.

However, First Lady Melania Trump recently visited South Florida without the President in January and December.

On Thursday, President Trump told reporters at the White House he won't accept a deal to keep the government open without funding for a border wall.
