After landing in Newport News at 4:30 p.m., presidential candidate Donald Trump made an unannounced stop in Williamsburg on his way to a scheduled rally in Richmond.

The presumptive Republican nominee visited the Williamsburg Inn to attend an event that was not open to the press or public.

The exclusive event coincides with the Senators Classic golf weekend at the Williamsburg Inn, an annual assembly of Washington, D.C., elites.

Staff at the Inn were not permitted to confirm or deny that the candidate would be staying on the premises for the weekend event.

According to the Daily Press, Trump met with about two dozen Washington power brokers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, while visiting both the Spa at Colonial Williamsburg and the Williamsburg Inn.

Trump left Williamsburg shortly before 7 p.m., on his way to his own rally in Richmond, where he began his stump speech by praising his vineyards and golf courses in Virginia.
