President Donald Trump was joined by his sons Don Jr. and Eric as he took a break from his family Thanksgiving getaway at Camp David on Saturday and returned to the golf course for a third day in a row.
The president and his sons flew to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, on Marine One just a day after a federal judge he appointed refused his campaign’s request to block Joe Biden from being certified as the winner of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes.
Trump saluted two Marines in dress uniforms as he climbed from Marine One, wearing his red golf jacket and red ‘Make America Great Again’ cap with the number 45 embroidered on the side.
“President Trump and sons @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump flew Marine One from Camp David in Maryland to the family-owned and Trump-branded golf property in Virginia today,” NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell tweeted on Saturday.

According to CNN’s Jim Sciutto, the visit was Trump’s “418th day in office spent at a Trump property and his 307th day spent at a golf course.”

Shortly after flying back to Camp David on Marine One, Trump took to Twitter to rage tweet about the 2020 presidential campaign, which he lost to Joe Biden.
He first took aim at Fox News, tweeting: “[email protected] daytime is virtually unwatchable, especially during the weekends. Watch @OANN, @newsmax, or almost anything else. You won’t have to suffer through endless interviews with Democrats, and even worse!”
Trump then went on to claim that the recounting of the vote in Wisconsin — which has so far only increased Biden’s lead — is not about recounting votes. Trump’s false claim that he had found “many illegal votes” earned him a disclaimer warning from Twitter.
He then complained that the judges rejecting his conspiracy theories “want nothing to do with saving our country,” a claim that earned him yet another disclaimer warning from Twitter.
A day earlier, Trump was seen boarding Marine One from the golf course before he was flown directly to Camp David.
