President Trump will be back in Tampa Monday for the first time since the election campaign. Spokesman Sean Spicer says he plans to visit MacDill Air Force Base.

Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump's National Security Advisor, and Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will also attend.

“While at MacDill, the president will receive command briefings from both CentCom and SOCom, have lunch with the enlisted troops and have an all hands address to personnel,” Spicer said during his press briefing on Friday.

President Trump was already going to be in Florida over the weekend, visiting his home in Palm Beach, which Spicer referred to as the "Winter White House.”
