Trump returning to White House ahead of Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve party


#President #Trump plans to return to the #White #House from #Florida on #Thursday — earlier than originally planned, according to a schedule released late #Wednesday night.

The president’s early departure for #Washington, D.C., comes as guests are set to attend the annual #New #Year’s #Eve gala at #Mar-a-Lago, at which #Trump has made remarks for the previous three years of his presidency, according to The #Hill.

“The #President and #First #Lady will be leaving #Florida for the #White #House tomorrow at 11:00 AM,” the schedule said, according to a tweet posted by #Francesca #Chambers, a reporter for #McClatchy.

#No specific reason was given for the change in plans, The #Associated #Press reported.

The president and first lady have been in #Florida since #Dec. 23.

#Trump has been preoccupied with the election and the coronavirus relief bill during that time.

SEN. HAWLEY BLASTS HYPOCRITICAL DEMOCRATS OVER ELECTION COUNT OBJECTION, POINTS TO BUSH RACE

#Earlier #Wednesday, #Republican U.S. #Sen. #Josh #Hawley of #Missouri announced he planned to challenge #Congress’s counting of the #Electoral #College votes next #Wednesday that would affirm #President-elect #Joe #Biden’s win.

#Senate GOP leaders are against the effort to challenge #Biden’s win, with #Senate #Majority #Leader #Mitch #McConnell recognizing the former vice president’s victory, and behind closed doors urging #Senate #Republicans not to contest the election results.

#But with #Hawley joining the small group of #House #Republicans in objecting, the joint session of #Congress next week would be dissolved and the #House and #Senate would then meet separately for two hours to debate and vote on a contested state’s electoral vote.

A state’s slate of electoral votes would be tossed only if both the #House and #Senate vote to do so.
