President Donald Trump is spending Super Bowl weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, per his tradition, and his time away started with a campaign-themed bang.

Posts on social media showed the president starting his day with golf, before attending an over-the-top celebration thrown by a group of his supporters.

Trump posted on his Twitter Saturday morning that he was „getting a little exercise this morning!“ alongside a photo of him teeing off.

Getting a little exercise this morning!

The post wasn’t suprising, as the club is a common weekend stop for Trump, who clocked more than one in every five days at a golf club last year, according to CNN.

Later that day, posts on Instagram showed crowds packing rooms for a party in the resort’s main building, where the president and first lady greeted their guests.

A banner above a stage shows Trump’s likeness superimposed on a cartoon football player with the event’s name, „Red White & Blue: Celebrating Trump Kick-Off 2020 Victory,“ which is apparently the third of its kind to be hosted by the „Trumpettes,“ a pro-Trump group.

Singer Lee Greenwood, who is known for his song „Proud to Be An American“ that has served as Trump’s entrance song at his campaign rallies, appeared to be serenading the crowd.

Another post shows the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend and Fox News alum Kimberly Guilfoyle addressing the crowd before Trump took the stage.

In another video posted on Instagram, the first lady took the stage to say she was looking forward to „campaigning and fighting for Americans,“ before thanking the cheering crowd.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel initially reported that Trump would be back to his favorite Super Bowl destination again this year, after golfing and hosting a Sunday game party that was cheered on by Florida Atlantic University marching band and cheerleaders.

Trump is expected to host his own party again before the Sunday night game, after which he is expected to head back to Washington.

All eyes are expected to be on Trump’s minute-long Super Bowl ad, which reportedly cost about $11.2 million and is set to face off with an ad by fellow 2020 contender Michael Bloomberg that cost the former mayor more than $11 million.

Fox News is also set to air a nine-minute interview between Trump and host Sean Hannity during the game.
