President Donald Trump is in Florida at his Mar-a-Lago club for the fourth weekend out of the past five weekends and may hit the golf course Saturday.

Trump headed from Mar-a-Lago to the Trump International Golf Club Saturday morning. The White House press office said he was at the club conducting meetings and taking phone calls and “might hit a few balls” as well.

There was no word who he was meeting with or who might join him for golf, according to a White House media pool report.

Trump arrived at the club on Friday after a visit to a private religious school in Orlando. He also attended a Republican National Committee dinner Friday. Protesters greeted him there and at least one was arrested, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Trump also has found the time during his visit to post tweets accusing President Obama of wiretapping his phones and calling Obama a “bad (or sick) guy.”

Trump’s schedule says he will return to Washington on Sunday, but did not say exactly when.
