The situation in our nation’s capital is evolving rapidly, with politicians of all shapes and sizes jumping on bandwagon and off ships at an alarming rate.
Well after midnight on Thursday morning, as Congress continued their efforts to certify the results of the 2020 election, this was rather apparent. Longtime Trump allies like Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell distanced themselves from Trump, practically tucking their tails and submitting to the fact that Joe Biden did indeed win the election.
Then, on Thursday, a chorus of calls came in to have the President removed from office by whatever means possible, whether that be another impeachment or the 25th Amendment. Those calls came from both sides of the aisle as well, which has put further pressure on the situation.
Amid all of this, President Trump is heading to Camp David for the weekend.
President Trump will travel to Camp David over the weekend, the Washington Examiner has learned.
A White House official confirmed the president’s visit to his country retreat in Frederick County, Maryland, approximately sixty miles north of Washington. The camp is known as the site of historic presidential peace talks.
The official did not immediately respond to requests for further information, such as who would accompany the president and how long he would remain there. A temporary flight restriction was declared over the area beginning Friday.
Trump’s trip will cap an unusually chaotic week that included a violent storming of the U.S. Capitol as lawmakers inside the building moved to certify the results of the presidential election.
The move also sparked conversations within the Qanon conspiracy movement, as they claim a dispatch from over a year ago referred to this moment, using “Castle Rock” as code for Camp David.
Many of those who breached the Capitol on Wednesday have been identified as being involved with the Qanon movement.
