After His Mob Thrashed the US Capitol
A White House official confirmed that the president would travel to the Camp David retreat in Maryland, not his preferred Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, on Friday. The decision to leave the White House comes after a growing exodus of top staff from the administration and calls for impeachment and invoking of the 25th Amendment from both Democrats and some Republicans in Congress.
The trip comes after the US Capitol was invaded and vandalized by pro-Trump rioters seeking to disrupt and overturn the results of the election and prevent a Biden presidency. Both chambers of Congress were breached as US Capitol Police failed to hold back the interlopers.
