( Daily Mail ) President Donald Trump reunited with First Lady Melania Trump on Friday afternoon for his first weekend getaway from the White House after a whirlwind week which left Washington – and the world – reeling.
‘I told you I’d win that election,’ he told a crowd that welcomed him in Palm Beach after a flight aboard Air Force One.
The first lady gave him a kiss at the bottom of the stairs he used to exit the presidential aircraft after the flight from outside Washington.
Traveling with the president aboard Air Force One was Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman, who chairs a panel of business CEOs for the president.
The first lady has had no public appearances since the inauguration. She has been at the couple’s Trump Tower home in New York while their 10-year-old son Barron attends school.
The first couple will be attending the white tie Red Cross ball held at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s ‘winter White House,’ the Palm Beach Daily News reported. The event is considered a highlight of the Palm Beach social season.
