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 if the electoral college votes for his Democratic rival.
Trump, former assistant Dan Scavino, who is close to the president and his family, posted a photo on Twitter of all of the adult Trump children sitting together outside around a fire pit. Their significant others are with them.
The location on the tweet says ‘Camp David’ and it was posted on Thursday night.
In the photo, Kimberly Guilfoyle is standing next to her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner has his arm around his wife Ivanka Trump, Lara Trump is sitting on Eric Trump’s lap and Tiffany Trump is standing next to her boyfriend Michael Boulos.
Trump is scheduled to go to the remote Maryland presidential retreat Friday afternoon.

On Friday morning, the president continued his rant against Twitter, criticizing the social media company for suspending the account of one of its Republican allies in Pennsylvania and comparing his actions to those of a communist country.
Trump spent part of his Thanksgiving holiday lashing out at his enemies and previously accused Twitter of making up his trending topics.
He tweeted several news reports from OANN and Newsmax – two conservative news networks – supporting his claim that he won Pennsylvania and mocking Biden’s viewers for his Wednesday Thanksgiving speech.
Twitter has labeled many of the president’s tweets as disputed information.
Trump, who has long accused the social media site of being biased against conservatives, condemned it on Thursday night, accused Twitter of concocting “ negative things ” for their trending section, and called for the repeal of section 230, part of a law . this protects internet companies from liability for the content that users post.
The president spent Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday having dinner with his “ immediate family ” – the White House wouldn’t say who all that involved.
Trump said on Thursday that it is “very difficult to give in” to the election, but admitted that he would leave the White House if the electoral college voted for Biden.
But he didn’t admit that it meant he’d lost – despite Biden’s huge lead in the electoral college votes, and declined to say whether he would attend the inauguration.
The meeting marked the first time the president had answered press questions since election day.
Trump spoke to reporters in the ornate White House diplomatic reception room after holding a conference call with members of the US military stationed around the world.
However, he said the electoral college should not confirm Biden’s victory.
“If they do, they have made a mistake because this election was a fraud,” said the president.
Earlier that day, Trump spent the morning at his Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia, playing 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 thank God for our many blessings,” he said in a statement.
Trump urges Americans to get together for the holiday as the daily death toll from COVID-19 in the United States has first exceeded 2,100 since May, as millions of Americans continue to ignore the CDC’s travel guide and the dire warnings from health experts that Thanksgiving is the “mother of all superspreader events.”
Don Jr., the president’s eldest son who tested positive for the coronavirus a few weeks ago, posted a message on Instagram that he is ‘done with Rona’ and is going to spend Thanksgiving with family.
He videotaped the message Wednesday with girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, noting that the couple will eat their ‘backup meal’ that day and then enjoy a second Thanksgiving feast.
