Trump has never formally endorsed Moore, but he has repeatedly said, "we don't need a liberal person in there.” Other Republicans have called on Moore, who is now 70, to withdraw from the race.

It’s been a largely uneventful holiday for the president since he arrived Tuesday. His past few days have been filled with golf outings, including a reported round with Palm Beach County resident and PGA legend Jack Nickalus on Saturday at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach. On Friday, his reported links partners at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter included Jupiter Island resident Tiger Woods.

During that outing, however, the president received word of a deadly attack on a mosque in Egypt. While at Trump National, Trump tweeted that the massacre that killed more than 200 people was a “horrible and cowardly terrorist attack.” After returning to Mar-a-Lago Friday afternoon, Trump spoke with the Egyptian president by phone. 

On Thanksgiving Day, the president and the first lady visited the Coast Guard in Riviera Beach and Trump spoke with troops overseas, thanking them for their service.
