He’s back. And so are his long red ties.

Expect long delays today through Sunday on all three of the bridges that lead in to and out of Palm Beach as President Trump makes his fourth weekend visit to his private club/residence Mar-a-Lago.

The three bridges include the Flagler Memorial Bridge, the northernmost one, and a one-laner as it’s still under construction;  the Royal Park Bridge located in the center of the island; and the Southern Boulevard Bridge. It’s the southernmost bridge that connects West Palm Beach to Palm Bridge. It’s also  the one for-and-against protesters and the media use. And  the bridge  that the  presidential motorcade takes from the airport, PBI, to  Mar-a-Lago.

Additionally,  earlier today television coverage of the prez  coming down the stairs of Air Force One in Orlando  showed  him back to sporting a long red tie.

Someone ought to suggest that that look isn’t his best. Then again, a great title for a book about his presidency  could be “The Long Red Tie”. Putin might  love it.

This is it—the backside of Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s go-to White House in Palm Beach, FL. That’s the Intracoastal Waterway, aka Lake Worth. It separates Palm Beach Island from West Palm Beach and the rest of the world. I took the photo from the same vantage point all local, national and international reporters and journalists use—a spit of land right off Southern Blvd. Bridge. It’s one of three bridges that connects you to the island of PB.


Happy President’s Day and welcome to the first pbTrumpBits blog entry!

No matter how you feel about our new president, or which party you’re a party to, there is no denying that there always has been and always will be an interest in Palm Beach, Florida.

This slender little perfectly manicured island is and always has been home to America’s—and the world’s– rich and famous. And now with President Trump making his exclusive private club Mar-a-Lago his go-to White House, the appeal to learn more about the island is greater than ever.

With that in mind, pbTrumpBits will bring to its readers tidbits and stories about life on the island as it relates to our new Commander-in-Chief. Content in this blog won’t be a snarky—there are plenty of other sources where you can read that. My intent is to bring to you another view of the new and changing life Trump has brought to Palm Beach as this our 45th President who— even without revealing his tax returns—is said to be America’s richest President ever.

Thanks for reading and hope you will share this new blog with others.

Happy President’s Day.

Back soon.
