Donald Trump is preparing to leave for his first extended vacation in office, starting a 17-day trip on Friday to his resort property in New Jersey.
White House pool reports confirmed that Trump’s departure time was moved up by 30 minutes, and he is now scheduled to depart Washington D.C. at 3:15 p.m.
His departure follows the House and Senate adjoining for the majority of August in a move that leaves Washington largely quiet for the month. Congress went into recess after the Senate failed last month to pass a repeal and replace of ObamaCare.
Senators banded together on Thursday to block Trump from making recess appointments during the August break, a move that required the consent of every member of the upper chamber.
Trump broke with norms by not holding a press conference Friday before leaving, a practice former President Obama typically followed before leaving for vacations in Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii.
Despite this being Trump’s first full vacation in office, NBC News reports he’s already spent 58 of his first 195 days in office at his various properties, including his Bedminster club and his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
