According to three people familiar with the matter, Trump now plans to leave Palm Beach before his annual New Year’s Eve party, even though guests have gathered at his South Florida club and have been told Trump will attend. The president usually relishes, appearing on the red carpet in front of the press and his friends, but this year will skip this event altogether, which will be an unusual move.
According to several people who spoke with him, he has been irritable for most of the entire trip and has been very upset about everything from the election results to the decoration of first lady Melania Trump. The private dormitory and other things are angry.
Trump also once stated that he was worried that Iran might retaliate against the U.S. drone strike in the next few days. A year ago, the U.S. drone strike killed Iranian Supreme Commander Qassem Soleimani. One person speculated that this might be the reason he left early. Trump ordered a strike on Soleimani on January 3, 2020, when he was in Mar-a-Lago.

Even if he publicly debated the results, one of the questions he repeatedly investigated was whether he should attend Biden’s inauguration.
Trump recently told people that at the end of his presidency, Penny did not fight for him enough, and he has recently become interested in the traditional role of Penny during the certification period. As chairman of the Senate, Pence presided over the proceedings.
The source said that Trump brought the problem to the vice president before taking a vacation and has been “confused” about why Pence could not overturn the results of the January 6 election. His role is more formal, and he cannot unilaterally refuse to vote for the electoral college.
Penny had planned to travel abroad shortly after being certified on January 6. People familiar with the matter said, but plans for the Middle East and Europe trip have been shelved.
Pence spent his Christmas holiday in Vail, Colorado.
