President Donald Trump was expected to give a speech at the 60th annual Red Cross Gala in Palm Beach, Florida which was to be broadcast by the White House Press Office via stream. At the last moment, the WHPO made the stream private, but Trump did make an appearance and if video is released, we will have it.
President Trump and the First Lady made quite an entrance at the event as Donald appeared in a Tux and Melania was wearing a floor-length, v-neck gown.

Just before 9 PM, the President and the First Lady arrived at the Red Cross gala ball. The first couple lined up with other guests at the end of a long line of guests entering the ballroom at Mar-a-Lago when Trump was if he was confident he would prevail in the government’s appeal of the court ruling blocking his immigration order.
“We’ll win,” he replied. “For the safety of our country, we’ll win.”
*Update* The White House made private the media stream that was to be available for Trump’s comments. Perhaps these protesters had something to do with that:
As soon as the White House Press Office releases the video of the President’s speech, we’ll post it here.
