President Trump is spending Friday golfing with members of the U.S. Coast Guard, the White House announced.
The president and 60 service members from Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet in Riviera Beach, Fla., and elsewhere around the country will participate in a four-man scramble at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.
Trump and the service members will also have lunch, provided by the president, according to the White House.
“These brave men and women patrol the waterways near Palm Beach and Mar-a-Lago everyday,” Hogan Gidley, deputy White House press secretary, said. “The president wanted to thank these service members personally for their service to this nation.”

Trump and his family have been spending the holidays at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida club, and the president has been at the Trump International Golf Club each day this week, with the exception of Christmas Day.
The president and first lady Melania Trump visited members of the Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet on Thanksgiving, during which he handed out sandwiches and delivered brief remarks to service members.
