Trump Cancels Mar-a-Lago Trip Amid Looming Shutdown Fight

President Trump has cancelled his weekend Mar-a-Lago trip amid the looming government-shutdown fight in Congress, hours after postponing his trip earlier Friday.

According to The Hill, the president and first lady were originally slated to depart for Florida midday Friday.
