PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago is reopening after being closed during the brutal heat and humidity of Florida's summer.
If last season is a guide, the president will soon visit his Winter White House during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's and then return many more weekends until May.
But he will find a major difference this season. Because of the outcry over remarks he made after a white nationalist rally in Virginia, Mar-a-Lago will host many fewer galas.
Trump blamed the violence that erupted in Charlottesville on both sides: on the white nationalists who were protesting the removal of a Confederate statue and on the counterprotesters who opposed them. A counterprotester was killed.
About 20 charities have cancelled or moved their events. A few newcomers are taking their place.
