Donald Trump ‘works through Thanksgiving to keep AC company in the US’ as he enjoys lavish five-course dinner at Mar-a-Lago

Donald Trump may be spending Thanksgiving with his family in his Florida club Mar-a-Lago, but the President-elect promises he hasn’t stopped working.

On Thursday he tweeted: ‘I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS – Will know soon!’

And Trump kept his energy up with a five-course meal with his family, with options including ‘three-layer Trump chocolate cake’ and ‘Mr Trump’s wedge salad’.

'Working hard': Trump said he had been trying to keep Carrier from moving its AC manufacturing to Mexico. He'd previously threatened to tax them 35 per cent if they did

Earlier this year Carrier announced that it would relocate its production plant to Mexico, causing the loss of 1,400 US jobs in Indianapolis.

In a campaign speech in the city, Trump promised he would ‘tax the hell’ out of Carrier’s Mexico-produced products – to the tune of 35 per cent – to make them change their mind.

Carrier responded to Trump’s tweet with one of his own, saying: ‘Carrier has had discussions with the incoming administration and we look forward to working together. Nothing to announce at this time.’

The Trump team had something to announce, however: The spread available at his Mar-a-Lago resort was made available to the media.

The five-course luxury menu was made available to the press, to give a hint at what the Trumps might be dining on for Thanksgiving.

And what a feast it was, with a selection of options including herb-marinated beef tenderloin, pan-seared Chilean sea bass and red-wine-braised short ribs.

But the more intriguing options were outside the main courses – such as the ‘three layer Trump chocolate pie’ in the dessert section.

Meanwhile, the ‘From the Garden’ options included ‘Mr Trump’s Wedge Salad’ and ‘Ahi Tuna Martini’s’ [sic].

It’s not clear what kind of a garden farms tuna or distills gin, but it’s an impressive selection all the same.
