US President Donald Trump canceled a trip to the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for thanksgiving because he is busy with work. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said this on Fox News on Wednesday.
She was asked to comment on media reports that Trump and his wife Melania canceled a trip to Florida and intend to spend thanksgiving At the White House, which this year is celebrated in the United States on November 26. “The President is working hard on what concerns the coronavirus and other issues, on reducing the number of [US] military personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq, returning them home,” she replied. “He is working hard and will remain in the White House,” the spokeswoman added.
On Tuesday, CNN reported that the cancellation of the trip to Florida came as a surprise to White House staff, as the head of state expressed a desire to go to Mar-a-Lago before the November 3 General election. In recent years, he spent the holiday there.
Thanksgiving is celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November.
