It’s going to be a Palm Beach Thanksgiving for President Trump.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a new advisory for Trump’s visit from Nov. 21 to Nov. 26. He’s expected to spend the holiday at his Mar-a-Lago Club, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

Trump’s seven visits to Mar-a-Lago since taking office and two stays as president-elect, including Thanksgiving 2016, have cost local taxpayers nearly $4 million. His summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago resulted in a $1.5 million security tab, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
