Trump is known to frequently travel to his properties.

He spent Thanksgiving weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort and arrived at the Florida resort on Friday for the Christmas holiday.

Trump has frequently referred to Mar-a-Lago as the "Winter White House" on Twitter.

Trump's frequent visits have been viewed harshly by critics and ethics experts, who say it gives his organization free publicity, although the president himself no longer manages the company.

Early on in his presidential campaign, Trump said that if elected, he would “rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done.”

“I would not be a president who took vacations,” he said. “I would not be a president that takes time off.”
