It would appear Donald Trump's first presidential pardon will be for a Florida turkey. 

Word of Trump's upcoming holiday visit comes from a "VIP Movement Notification" released by the Federal Aviation Administration. These notifications typically precede the President's travel, and are issued to warn other pilots of future flying restrictions.
So far, Trump has spent 25 days of his presidency at Mar-a-Lago and an additional 14 days at the Trump International Golf Club in nearby West Palm Beach, reports the New York Times.  In total, Trump has spend nearly a third of his presidency at one of his properties.

The recent FAA notification places Trump in Palm Beach from Nov. 21 - Nov. 26, adding another six days to Trump's time in the area.

Trump's vacation days have already far eclipsed both his predecessor, President Barack Obama, and his frequent campaign promises. According to the Washington Post, as of August, Trump has already spent three times more vacation days than Obama at this point.
