President Donald Trump will be making his first trip back to his native New York City since becoming the nation's 45th president Jan. 20 on Thursday and could cause gridlock for New Jersey commuters.

The afternoon visit will be a brief one, but with it will come gridlock for motorists in Manhattan.

Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will attend the 75th Anniversary of the World War II Battle of the Coral Sea aboard the USS Intrepid on the West Side.

It will mark the first time Trump and Turnbull have met. The two engaged in a contentious phone conversation in May in which Trump reportedly objected to a refugee deal made between the countries during the Obama administration.

Turnbull said in a tweet he was "delighted" to be coming to New York City to "meet with @POTUS Donald Trump."

At least two protests are planned near the Intrepid. Protests are also expected around Trump Tower.

After speaking at the Intrepid, Trump is expected to bypass a visit to Trump Tower and travel directly in the early evening to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., where he is expected to spend the weekend.

Trump will be flying from the White House to John F. Kennedy Airport.
