President Trump and Melania have Thanksgiving dinner with their family at Mar-a-Lago
Donald Trump was joined by the rest of his family at the Thanksgiving dinner that he hosted at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
The dinner took place on Thursday, November 22, 2018, and featured several delicious meals for those invited, including the traditional turkey.
As reported by Fox News, the only ingredient missing was romaine lettuce due to the recent E. Coli outbreak, which is believed to be connected to the vegetable.

The luxurious menu included treats such as Chilean Sea Bass, Red Snapper, Braised short ribs, lamb, salmon and beef tenderloin, as well as the famous stuffing.
During dinner, which was attended by Ivanka Trump and her family, Trump's youngest daughter Tiffany and son Eric, the President of the U.S. was flanked by his wife Melania and son Baron.
THE BORDER CASE
For unknown reasons, Donald Trump Jr. was unable to attend, but the dinner was a success anyway, with everyone having a great time despite the recent controversy regarding the U.S. border with Mexico.
On Thursday, Trump revealed that he would have no trouble closing the border for an undisclosed period of time until U.S. officials are able to take control of the situation.
ACKNOWLEDGING THE TROOPS
Thanksgiving was also an opportunity for the American leader to thank the five branches of the military for their service, as well as receive some much-needed updates on their missions.
Representatives of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and Air Force were on the phone with Trump, who expressed the country's 'profound gratitude' for their dedication.
Trump was also recently in the news after Barack Obama hinted that the current President has 'mommy issues' that are holding the country back, and that the U.S. is not evolving due to 'hate, anger and racism.'
Although Obama didn't mention Trump by name, his speech at the Obama Foundation Summit, which took place on Monday, November 19, led people to believe that he was referring to the Head of the White House.
