President Donald Trump now plans to leave Washington to hold a farewell event on the morning of Inauguration Day, after considering leaving a day earlier, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters Friday.
Trump, who announced on Jan. 8 that he would not attend Democrat Joe Biden's inauguration, is planning to hold his event at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where Air Force One is headquartered, the source said.
Word of Trump's plan to depart nation's capital for Florida on Wednesday was also reported by Friday by Bloomberg News, in a report citing two unnamed "people familiar with the matter."
After the event at Andrews, Trump is slated to fly on to Palm Beach, Florida, to begin his post-presidency at his Mar-a-Lago club, the source told Reuters.
