The Center of the 30 NM TFR is just north of Miramar. So I can't really tell.

You can map it on the bottom of the NOTAM.

My Guess is March ARB (RIV) He has flown in before and its set up to handle it no problem.

Expect the first stop to be MCAS Miramar, San Diego, CA. According to local news, he'll get a helo tour of Rancho Bernardo first, then circle around to view all the fire damaged areas in the county --staying away from active fire zones due to all the fire aircraft expected to be flying tomorrow. The expectation is a short speech shortly after noon then heading north to LA basin for similar.

will he be in AF1 or take one of the 757s? AF1 seems like a waste to go from washington DC to SAN

No matter which airplane the POTUS is aboard, it is always AF1. But, my guess is, yes, the type airplane will be a VC-25A, and not the VC-32A/B.

The command and control capabilities of the VC-25A, combined with its ability to uplift more payload, makes it the plane of choice for most missions even if they are relatively short. The VC-32s are most often seen when an airport can't support a 747.
