Donald Trump and Melania deliver their Christmas message
It followed a report in the Sunday Post that Mr Trump could be planning to spend time at one of his two Scottish golf courses. Speaking to Fox News Judd Deere, deputy White House press secretary, commented: “Anonymous sources who claim to know what the President is or is not considering have no idea.
“When President Trump has an announcement about his plans for January 20 he will let you know.”
The Post cited unnamed Prestwick airport insiders who claimed US military surveillance aircraft have been at the site for the past week.
One said the airport had received a booking for “American military version of the Boeing 757 on January 19”.
They added this could be the aircraft “normally used by the Vice President but often used by the First Lady”.

On January 4 he tweeted: “In America, politicians can’t assert, take, or seize power.
“It has to be given by the American people.
