The Trumps left the White House grounds on Marine One at around 8:20 a.m. heading to Joint Base Andrews.

The Associated Press reports that there will be a sendoff there with a red carpet, a military band, and a 21-gun salute.

Guests have been invited, but it is unclear how many will attend. Vice President Mike Pence plans to skip the event, citing the logistical challenges of getting from the airbase to the inauguration ceremonies. 

The Trumps was board Air Force One and head to Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, where he will retire with a small group of former White House aides.
