POTUS departed Palm Beach via Marine One at 12:26 pm and is heading to Canal Point for his event on infrastructure repairs at Herbert Hoover Dike.

Pool was driven to the site earlier by motorcade and is holding for POTUS arrival. Canal Point is about 44 miles from Palm Beach.

A Trump campaign flag is flying over the levee alongside the American flag near the Marine One landing site. Several pro-Trump signs also were spotted along the motorcade route, including a couple near the entry of Canal Point that read: “America’s Sugarcane Farmers Support President Trump.”

The White House provides the following details on today’s event:
