President Donald Trump was set to visit his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey this weekend. The trip sparked controversy because the White House said Trump wouldn't comply with New Jersey's order for visitors to self-quarantine for 14 days if they've recently been in a virus hotspot.

The reason given by the White House? The President isn't a civilian.

The controversy became moot, however, because the White House announced that Trump had canceled the trip.

After speculation that Trump called off the trip in response to the controversy, he soon took to Twitter to clear things up.

According to the President, he wanted to make sure things were orderly in Washington.

Trump insisted that he was "doing what is necessary to keep our communities safe."

But then people checked the weather in Bedminster, New Jersey—where Trump's golf course is located.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected all weekend, from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and from 1 pm to 5 pm on Sunday.

This led some to speculate that Trump canceled his trip because he wouldn't be able to golf.

It's also unclear exactly how Trump being in the White House this weekend will enforce law and order.

Earlier this month, as massive protests against the murder of unarmed Black people by police reached the front gates of the White House, Americans shamed Trump for turning out the White House's exterior lights and taking refuge in its underground bunker.

Trump claimed he went to the bunker during the unrest for an "inspection."

The following day, angered by reports that he hid in said bunker, the White House ordered tear gas released on peaceful protesters in order for Trump to take a picture with a bible in front of the historic Saint John's Episcopal Church.

Church officials unequivocally condemned the action.

People highlighted this ineffectiveness, citing the bunker.

Trump continues his years-long advocacy for violence against protesters.
