The Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida © Leah Millis The Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida President Trump on Saturday returned to his Florida golf club for his typical weekend activities as the country anxiously awaits the details of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, submitted to the Justice Department on Friday.

Mueller delivered his long-awaited report to Attorney General William Barr on Friday evening, concluding his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. His probe, which spanned nearly two years, also included inquiries into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and whether the president obstructed justice.

Trump has so far not commented on the end of Mueller’s investigation, which he has long derided as a “witch hunt.” Before departing the White House for Florida on Friday morning, the president repeated to reporters his assertion that there was no collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders did, however, say in a statement Friday the White House “has not received or been briefed on the special counsel’s report.”

“The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course,” she said.

Amid the suspense surrounding Mueller’s report, Trump returned to Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach on Saturday. The president often spends his weekends at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida property, golfing, and has played so far this year with Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and Dustin Johnson.

Mueller’s investigation has cast a shadow over the first two years of Trump’s presidency, and it’s unknown when details of the report will be made public. Barr did, however, tell lawmakers in a letter he “may be in a position to advise you of the special counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.”
