The president spent five days in Palm Beach for Thanksgiving weekend.

“We’re out here to greet him and tell him thank you and he’s doing a great job," Dan Ray said. "Show him that he has supporters.”

When the motorcade came over the bridge from the Winter White House, supporters greeted the president at Flagler, cheering and waving at him.

People waved flags and held signs saying "Trump Strong," "Hilary for Prison," "Puppies for Trump," among other slogans.

Further down Southern Boulevard outside Dreher Park, protesters booed as the motorcade passed by.

Some of their signs had large printed words like "Shame," "Corrupt," and
Liar."

“I think we all need to make sure that people still know that this displeasure is still out there," said Alex Newell Taylor, of Women's March Florida.
