NEW YORK — Vice President-elect Mike Pence is travelling to Mississippi, where his son is stationed, for the holiday.

That’s according to Jason Miller, a spokesman for Trump’s transition team.

Pence’s son, Michael, is a Marine who is training to be a pilot.

President-elect Donald Trump will spend Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Miller said Trump will get together with family at his Palm Beach home and take a brief break from transition planning.

Asked what Trump will be doing, Miller said, “hopefully eating some turkey.”
