Donald Trump

President Donald Trump and the first lady will be spending Thanksgiving at the White House.

Trump and his family will be skipping the the annual dinner at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.

It is not clear if the Mar-a-lago event will still take place due to COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging people to celebrate virtually or with members of their household, noting that in-person gatherings with people from different households “pose varying levels of risk.” Guidance also notes that a gathering’s size “should be determined based on the ability of attendees from different households” to socially distance and follow hygiene recommendations.
