In town pool report #5 — Leaving Trump National

?The motorcade departed Trump National Golf Club at 2:29 p.m.

While pool was standing outside, a Trump supporter who identified himself as "concerned patriot" approached the pool with a bullhorn to ask why the press is calling the election. (pictured below)

POTUS, shortly after, tweeted the same question.

While pool was holding just outside the crowd grew even larger from the original 50 or so people. There were cheers and cowbell ringing as the motorcade departed. The photo attached is just a portion of that crowd.
