BEDMINSTER, NJ - President Donald Trump greeted supporters in Bedminster Sunday afternoon before departing New Jersey after spending a weekend at Trump National Golf Club.  

At 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, the president stepped out of his SUV surrounded by Secret Service near the corner of Route 206 and Lamington Road.   “Thank you,” the president could be heard saying to the crowd of 50 or so supporters.  He threw red hats out to the crowd gathered behind a large white banner with red letters that read, “thank you Mr. President for making America great!”

In the recording, the crowd can be heard chanting, “U.S.A.” and “four more years.”  The president appeared to relish the opportunity to give his supporters such a unique and seemingly impromptu greeting.

According to the White House Press Pool, Trump was the special guest at an event hosted by independent, allied political committee America First Action to raise money for his re-election, and he also played golf with Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre.

This weekend’s visit to his Bedminster retreat was Trump’s second of the year.  Last month, Trump headlined a fundraiser for his re-election campaign and dined with Gov. Phil Murphy.

He previously canceled two other planned trips to Bedminster.

According to NBC News, Trump has spent 94 days at Bedminster during his presidency, his second most traveled retreat behind his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida where he has spent 133 days.
