US President Donald Trump hosted a Super Bowl watch party at his private golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday. He and First Lady Melania Trump arrived just before kickoff.
The Florida Atlantic University Marching Band marked Trump's arrival by playing "Hail to the Chief," ''Boogie Wonderland" and "Shut Up and Dance." Trump thanked band members for a "great job" and complemented their "great talent" before entering the club.
The president did not say which team he is rooting for. He punted when he was asked his preference earlier this week at the White House, saying "I better not get involved." However, Trump is good friends with Patriots owner Bob Kraft. Trump has said Kraft telephoned him in December, as he prepared to sign a package of tax cuts into law, to tell him that the tax bill is "incredible."
The president spent the weekend at his estate in nearby Palm Beach, Florida. He returned to the White House late on Sunday.
