WASHINGTON – As hundreds of thousands of people gather here for the March for Our Lives, President Donald Trump will be far away in Florida, making his 15th trip to Mar-a-Lago since taking office.

Trump is scheduled to depart Washington for Palm Beach late this afternoon. His weekend activities are not known but he's frequently visited his golf clubs.

A big TV watcher, Trump will likely see coverage of Saturday's march in Washington and many other events taking place across the country.
