President Donald Trump will travel to Camp David on Friday to meet with his family as he admitted he will leave the White House for Joe Biden should the electoral college vote for his Democratic rival.
Trump longtime aide Dan Scavino, who is close to the president and his family, posted a photo on Twitter of all the adult Trump children together outside sitting around a fire pit. Their significant others are with them.
The location on the tweet says ‘Camp David’ and it was posted Thursday night.
In the picture, Kimberly Guilfoyle is next to her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner has his arm around his wife Ivanka Trump, Lara Trump sits in Eric Trump’s lap, and Tiffany Trump is next to her boyfriend Michael Boulos.
Trump is scheduled to head to the secluded presidential retreat, in Maryland, Friday afternoon.

On Friday morning, the president continued his rant against Twitter, criticizing the social media company for suspending the account of one of his Republican allies in Pennsylvania and comparing its actions to those of a communist country.
He tweeted several news bites from OANN and Newsmax – two conservative news networks – that backed up his claim he won Pennsylvania and mocked Biden’s viewership for his Wednesday Thanksgiving address.
Twitter has labeled many of the president’s tweets as containing disputed information.
Trump, who has long accused the social media site of being biased against conservatives, blasted it on Thursday evening, accusing Twitter of making up ‘negative stuff’ for their trending section, and called for the repeal of Section 230, a part of a law that shields internet companies from liability for the content that users post.
The president spent the Thanksgiving holiday having dinner with his ‘immediate family’ on Thursday – the White House would not say who that all included.
Trump said Thursday it’s a ‘very hard thing to concede’ the election, but admitted he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden.
But he stopped short of admitting that meant he had lost – despite Biden’s huge lead in Electoral College votes and refused to say if he would attend the inauguration.
The meeting was the first time the president had taken questions from the press since Election Day.
Trump spoke to reporters in the White House’s ornate Diplomatic Reception Room after holding a teleconference with members of the US military stationed across the globe.
He, however, said that the Electoral College should not confirm Biden’s win.
‘Well if they do, they made a mistake, because this election was a fraud,’ the president said.
Earlier that day, Trump spent the morning at his Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Va., where he played a round of golf.
In his Thanksgiving proclamation, President Trump encouraged Americans to gather and give thanks.
‘I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings,’ he said in a statement.
Trump’s urging Americans to gather for the holiday comes as daily deaths from COVID-19 in the United States have surpassed 2,100 for the first since May as millions of Americans continue to ignore CDC travel guidance and dire warnings from health experts that Thanksgiving could be the ‘mother of all superspreader events’.
Don Jr., the president’s oldest son who tested positive for coronavirus a couple of weeks ago, posted a message to Instagram he is ‘done with Rona’ and will spend Thanksgiving with family.
He videotaped the message on Wednesday with girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, noting the couple will be eating their ‘back up meal’ that day and then enjoying a second Thanksgiving feast.
