?After uneventful ride, motorcade arrived at 10:39 am at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling VA. Pool vans peeled off, heading to hold location.

Sign holder en route, near club: Good Riddance
Passerby gave motorcade a thumbs down.

In-town pool report #4- pool mobilized

?Pool is back in the vans, repositioned outside the club entrance. Dozens of onlookers line road to club, lots of signs for both Biden and Trump. Some more colorful anti trump signs: "You're fired" and "Pack your shut and go"

Vehicles (including Jeep, pickups, SUV w big trailer) with Trump flags are driving back and forth, horns blaring, one vehicle with person shouting thru loudspeaker "Media sucks" and "CNN sucks". And "the media lies about everything."

Big crowds at entry to club - again, for both sides. Pix to come.
