 (AP) --  A White House spokesman says President Donald Trump will host Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago this weekend.

Trump has been calling his resort the "Winter White House," and Press Secretary Sean Spicer says that Abe's trip there is a testament to the close relationship between the U.S. and Japan. Abe will first visit the White House before traveling to Palm Beach, Florida, with Trump, Spicer says.
Trump was at Mar-a-Lago this past weekend, where he visited with his wife, first lady Melania Trump, and attended a fundraiser for the Red Cross, among other events.
The following road closures will be in effect according to the town:


Starting on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 2 p-m all forms of travel, including pedestrian travel, will be prohibited on S. Ocean Boulevard from the intersection of S. County Road to Southern Boulevard.  The travel restrictions will also extend eastward to the ocean.  Only residents living between S.

Please take note of the temporary traffic patterns that will be in effect while President Trump is in Town.
