It appears US President-elect Donald Trump doesn’t have plans on living in the White House full time.
One of the many duties of Trump transition team will be helping the President-elect decide how many nights he will have to sleep at the White House each week.
The New York Times reports that Trump has told his advisors that he would like to continue to spend as much time as he can at his beloved Trump Tower penthouse in New York, and may retreat there, or to one of his other estates in New Jersey or Florida, on the weekends.
The sudden dilemma for Trump emerged as he recovers from his apparent shock at actually winning and comes to terms with how being president is going to completely upend his preferred lifestyle.
As the advisers noted, Trump has a deep attachment to his current homes, and he often made late night trips during his campaign so that he could sleep in his own bedroom.
However Trump advisors are hoping that he will eventually warm up to living in the White House as “he grows less overwhelmed and more comfortable in the job.”
The future first lady, Melania Trump, expects to move to Washington, but the couple’s 10-year-old son, Barron, is midway through a school year in New York, and it is unclear when the move would happen.
The Republican candidate on November 9, was elected as the 45th President of the United States.
The 70-year-old, won by over 57 million votes to his name, as against Hillary Clinton’s 56 million votes.
