Donald Trump and his family took off from New York City Tuesday night as they headed to their luxury Mar-a-Lago estate for their annual Thanksgiving celebration.
Given the rough few days he’s had fighting with the mainstream media, Trump likely wasn’t expecting much of a reception when he landed in Palm Beach. However, he ended up being VERY wrong!
Daily Mail reported that Trump was met resounding cheers as his motorcade carried him and his family from Palm Beach International Airport to their luxury pad.
This was likely a welcome surprise for Trump, as his home city of New York has become increasingly hostile towards him since the election.

Trump landed in Palm Beach around 7pm with his wife Melania and his son Barron. RNC chairman Reince Priebus is also on his way down to Florida to celebrate with the family.
Daily Mail reported:
Trump left behind a Big Apple that has decided to bite back at the new President-elect, with pro-Clinton protesters and even Broadway taking their shots at him and his still-forming Cabinet.
And he also says goodbye – for now, at least – to the ‘corrupt press’ whose heads he blasted in a series of fiery rants over the last two days.
On Monday, Trump invited executives from NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and Fox Business Network to Trump Tower for what was supposed to be an off-the-record meeting.
But according to one insider it was more like ‘a f**king firing squad’ in which Trump branded the execs ‘liars’ and ‘dishonest’ – and singled out CNN president Jeff Zucker, telling him ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed.’
Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, described the meeting as ‘very cordial, very productive, very congenial,’ and ‘very candid and honest’.
On Tuesday, Trump had a meeting with The New York Times, where he delivered a measured response to the paper’s reporters and its publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr.
‘I have great respect for the New York Times. I have tremendous respect. I think I’ve been treated very rough,’ he said. He said their coverage was ‘the roughest of all’ and said of his campaign: ‘It’s been 18 months of brutality in a true sense.’
We hope Trump and his family have a lovely Thanksgiving, they deserve it!
