On Thursday, President Trump and First Lady Melania headed to Joint Base Andrews, where they departed aboard Air Force One for his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for Easter.
The president did not take reporters’ questions as he and the First Lady left the White House, following the release of the Mueller report which ultimately cleared him of collusion and obstruction allegations.

President Trump and First Lady Melania are expected to stay at Mar-a-Lago throughout the Easter weekend, marking their third Easter spent at the Florida resort.
Earlier in the day,, President Trump met with wounded veterans at the White House, and said he was “thrilled to host” Wounded Warrior’s “Soldier Ride” project.
“We were all deeply honored to be in the presence of TRUE AMERICAN HEROES,” said Trump, praising the soldiers gathered in attendance.
Trump honored the troops for having “risked their lives and shed their blood to defend our nation, our people and our great American flag,” during the ceremony.

During his speech, President Trump noted that he had been vindicated of collusion and obstruction allegations, following the release of the Mueller report, noting, “I’m having a good day, too – it’s called ‘no collusion, no obstruction.'”
Trump went on to add, “this hoax, it should never happen to another president again,” while calling for an investigation of the lengthy Mueller probe’s origins.
