Trump to keep eye on Hurricane Harvey from Camp David

 

President Donald Trump says he is keeping eye on Hurricane Harvey from the official presidential retreat at Camp David.

Trump said in a tweet early this evening that he ‘just arrived at Camp David, where I am monitoring the path and doings of Hurricane Harvey (as it strengthens to a Class 3). 125 MPH winds!’

The president and first lady departed this afternoon for the country retreat near Thurmont, Maryland, a location that a White House official stressed is just 45 minutes away from Washington.

‘It is just as well-resourced as the White House, so he’ll have access to anybody, all the communications means that he might need,’ Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert told reporters during a televised briefing. ‘So it’s not a trip. I wouldn’t characterize it as a trip.’

It’s Trump’s third time visiting the naval support facility visit that functions as a private retreat for sitting presidents. He’s joined on the weekend excursion by son Barron, daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner and grandchildren Arabella, Theodore and Joseph, as well as the first lady.

Trump heads to Camp David for the first time

 

President Donald Trump’s first trip to Camp David with Melania, Barron and the in-laws.

 

From Daily Mail:

Nearly five months into his presidency, Trump flew to Camp David, the government-owned retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains, for the very first time.

Trump waved to photographers as he departed the White House in a navy suit, while Melania donned a $1,795 belted white shirt dress. Their son Barron Trump showed off Arsenal Football Club shorts and matching red knee-high socks.

Trump’s in-laws, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, joined the president for the overnight at Camp David after they accompanied Melania and Barron on their official move to the White House. It remains unclear whether the Knavs will live there full time.

Trump has favored his palatial residences in Florida and New Jersey over the wooded hideaway used by many presidents before him.

He told foreign newspapers earlier this year that Camp David was ‘very rustic’ and said: ‘You know how long you’d like it? For about 30 minutes.’

Trump is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday.
