A Federal Aviation Administration advisory forecasts a presidential visit to Bedminster the weekend of Sept. 21-23.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s month-long absence from the Garden State is expected to end next weekend.
Trump, who last visited his Bedminster golf club over the weekend of Aug. 17-19, is expected to be there again Sept. 21-23.
While the White House has not announced Trump’s schedule, the Federal Aviation Administration has announced a “VIP movement” for Newark and Bedminster, with airspace restrictions expected. Such FAA announcements have invariably predicted a presidential visit.
Trump’s unexpected guest in Jersey
Trump usually flies in and out of Morristown aboard a smaller Air Force One but also has used the full-sized plane at Newark Airport.
He last departed Morristown with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a one-time rival, on board. Paul had made an unannounced trip and played golf with the president.
The only announced trip on Trump’s schedule next week is a planned visit to the Carolinas to view damage caused by Hurricane Florence, with details to come.
“The president is expected to travel to areas affected by the storm early to middle of next week, once it is determined his travel will not disrupt any rescue or recovery efforts,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Friday.
Until this month-long absence, Trump had been a frequent guest in New Jersey, including a 12-day stay in August while renovations were underway at the White House.
The president won’t be visiting New Jersey that much longer. During the cooler months, he usually spends weekends at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
