President Donald Trump just can't get enough of golfing in the Sunshine State.

The Palm Beach Post reports Trump is returning to Mar-a-Lago for the third time this month on Friday, Jan. 19 and staying until Sunday, Jan. 21. During his last visit to the Palm Beach oceanside resort on Monday, Trump abstained from performing traditional acts of service for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and instead golfed to his heart's content. Outside his resort, hundreds of Haitian community members gathered to protest Trump's recent comments describing Haiti and African nations as "shithole" countries.

Trump is leaving Washington D.C. during the anniversary of his inauguration and the thousands of worldwide protests inspired by the Women's March on Washington.

Even though Trump will be in Florida this weekend, he will still get to see his share of demonstrators – close to 500 people are expected to attend an anti-Trump protest on Saturday near Mar-a-Lago. The "Inaugural Impeachment March to Mar-a-Lago" event said on Facebook that protesters will "come together with the purpose of showing the world that we the people will defend our great Democracy."
