President Trump continued to tweet about his attendance at the U.S. Women's Open, which is taking place this weekend at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Sporting his signature red "Make America Great Again" cap, Trump arrived Saturday to cheers from fans watching the tournament at his club.

"We love you, Donald!" they shouted, as he made his way into an enclosed viewing area with large windows looking out onto the course.

President Trump shared a video clip of his weekly address, in which he championed the revised GOP healthcare bill before the U.S. Senate and said that senators will next week vote on the legislation to roll back the Affordable Care Act.

"The Senate healthcare bill stops the Obamacare disaster, expands choice and drives down costs," Trump said in his remarks. "And I want to tell you the Republican senators are working very hard to get something that’s going to be really, really good – the opposite of the big lie which was Obamacare."

A full transcript of his address is here.

After attending the U.S. Women's Open at his New Jersey golf club on Friday, President Trump tweeted that he planned to be there Saturday, too.

The president's arrival at his club on Friday created such a commotion that crowds at the U.S. Women's Open were asked to keep it down as golfers Lexi Thompson, Brooke Henderson and Stacy Lewis approached the 15th green.

Trump, fresh off a quick trip to France, turned up in a glassed-off patio of the clubhouse with son Eric by his side.

President Trump has had notably tense relations with several European leaders, particularly German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But French President Emmanuel Macron, a politician of the center-left who won his election in part by capturing votes from the center-right, appears to have decided to try to establish a closer connection, despite Trump’s fairly open preference during this year’s French election for his opponent, Marine Le Pen, the right-wing nationalist.

The wooing of Trump began two weeks ago, when Macron invited him to watch the Bastille Day parade on Friday, noting that the event this year would commemorate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I.

One of President Trump's golf courses is hosting this weekend's U.S. Women's Open. Trump was in France this week to celebrate Bastille Day and meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, and he tweeted Friday morning that he had left Paris and would be heading to New Jersey for the tournament.

The event at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., was expected to draw protesters Friday who have criticized the U.S. Golf Assn., which operates the tournament, for not moving it to a different venue after audio surfaced last year of Trump making derogatory comments about women.

With Republicans' bid to roll back the Affordable Care Act only a vote away from collapse, President Trump took to Twitter Friday to urge GOP senators to pass revised healthcare legislation unveiled the day before.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has been meeting behind closed doors to adjust the legislation after being forced to abandon a vote last month amid a revolt within his party. Republicans have promised for seven years to repeal Obamacare, but the process is proving more difficult than expected.

President Trump was welcomed to Paris with a ceremonial arrival designed to commemorate the long history of alliance between the United States and France.

French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, greeted the president and First Lady Melania Trump at Les Invalides, the site of Napoleon’s tomb and other monuments to the French military.

The ceremonial portion of the day was heavy with French military history, including a tour of the tomb and the nearby burial site of French Marshal Ferdinand Foch, commander of the allied armies in the First World War.

President Trump honored American World War II veterans Thursday during a ceremony at the U.S. Embassy in Paris.

The president noted in a video clip posted to his Twitter account that the bonds between the United States and France were "forged in the fires of war."

Trump was joined at the outdoor event by three American veterans of the D-Day landings in Normandy in June 1944. He called them "real heroes" who "fought for freedom in its hour of need."
