This weekend, thousands of protesters will gather at Donald Trump's South Florida Mar-a-Lago resort for the March for Our Lives rally.

Joining the 830 protests around the country (including one in Orlando) and over a million people worldwide, at least 2,000 people are expected to march down Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach toward Mar-a-Lago on Saturday at 2:15 p.m, reports the Palm Beach Post.

The president is expected to arrive in Palm Beach this afternoon, and spend most of Saturday on the links at the Trump International Golf Club. Of course, if the presidential motorcade travels along its usual Southern Boulevard route, Trump will have to duck through a crowd of angry protesters.

This will be Trump's 15th trip to Mar-a-Lago since taking office. So far, it's estimated that Trump's golf outings have cost taxpayers over $58 million.

Here in Orlando, the local March for Our Lives rally will take place Saturday, March 24, at Lake Eola Park starting at noon.
