You better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout. He’s coming to town and bringing traffic instead of presents. He’s President Donald Trump.

Aventura and Hollywood will be the hot spot of traffic woes on Saturday as Trump speaks at two events and the Candy Cane Parade rolls through.

His route and when he will be coming into town have not been made public for security reasons, but at 5 p.m. he is expected to be at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa for the Republican Party of Florida’s Statesman’s Dinner.

As the president heads from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to the JW, two routes make the most sense for Secret Service to use: Interstate 95 and US 1. For the public, using South State Road 7/US 441 or the A1A will lead to fewer traffic back-ups.

He will then speak at the Israeli-American Council conference at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood at 7:30 p.m.

The president’s motorcade could take one of several routes from the JW to The Diplomat.

While police have not said which streets to be wary of, we advise staying away from Biscayne Boulevard from Northeast 203rd Street to Hallandale Beach Boulevard; the William Lehman Causeway; and the A1A from the Lehman Causeway to Hallandale Beach Boulevard.

The 64th annual Hollywood Beach Candy Cane Parade will start at 7 p.m. at Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, 3501 N. Broadwalk.

Hollywood police say to expect delays due to heavy traffic, although they don’t expect the president’s visit to delay or change traffic patterns in the area. Just don’t cry about it.
