This was also his first weekend at the presidential retreat in Maryland, after eschewing it for nearly five months in favor of staying at mostly Trump-owned properties.

The first lady also tweeted on Saturday that she and her husband were enjoying themselves at the camp. 


In a second tweet on Sunday, Melania Trump wished the president a happy Father's Day. 

The president also tweeted about Camp David, saying it was "an honor to have spent the weekend there," and praising the military.  


For the Trumps, Camp David is a more rustic alternative to the palatial resorts where they often spend their weekends. Trump's presence has long been a staple at his own golf courses and plush private clubs.

Early in his presidency, Trump often visited his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla. 

When the club closed for the summer, Trump turned to his golf club in Bedminster Township, N.J. On weekends when he has remained in Washington, he has often ventured out to his golf course in Sterling, Va.
