Trump's transition team provided little detail about how the family is spending the holiday, but it did release a dinner menu (below), consisting of salads, seafood, beef and an array of desserts.
Trump made clear early Thursday that he's working over the holiday, tweeting, "I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS - Will know soon!"
The Trumps have used the Mar-a-Lago Club as their holiday getaway for more than two decades. For the past two years, they have had to accommodate the Secret Service as well.
With Trump still in the early stages of assembling the key members who will help him run his administration, he is expected to hold more meetings Friday and over the weekend, though aides say he is also preparing to embark on a victory tour, possibly sometime in the next week.
