President Donald Trump was joined by his eldest sons Don Jr. and Eric as he took a break from his family Thanksgiving getaway at Camp David on Saturday and returned to the golf course.
The president headed to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, just a day after a federal judge he appointed refused his campaign's request to block Joe Biden from being certified as winner of Pennsylvania's electoral votes.
Trump saluted two Marines in dress uniforms as he climbed from Marine One, wearing his red golf jacket and red 'Make America Great Again' cap with the number 45 - he is the 45th president - embroidered on the side.
This is the second day in a row he has visited the Virginia golf club as he enjoys his final Thanksgiving at the presidential retreat in Catoctin Mountain Park, Maryland, about 60 miles north of the White House.

This was the third day in a row that the President had played golf and his second day on this golf course
Trump left the White House for his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., on Friday morning before taking Marine One to Camp David. He also got in 18 holes of his favorite sport on Thursday morning before his Thanksgiving dinner.
On Friday, Trump had continued his claims of election fraud on Twitter as he said that Biden had to prove his votes were not 'fraudulent' to enter the White House.
'Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous “80,000,000 votes” were not fraudulently or illegally obtained. When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!,' he tweeted.
Yet later in the day, his campaign was dealt yet another blow when a federal appeals court rejected a request by to block Biden from being declared the winner of the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
It marked another significant setback to Trump's bid to overturn the results of the November 3 election.
Trump's lawyers vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court despite the judge´s assessment that the 'campaign's claims have no merit.'
'Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,' Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote for the three-judge panel.
The three judges on the panel were all appointed by Republican presidents, and Bibas, a former University of Pennsylvania law professor, was appointed by Trump.
Pennsylvania certified Biden, who won the state's popular vote by more than 81,000 ballots, as its winner this week. Under Pennsylvania law, the candidate who wins the popular vote in the state gets all of the state's 20 electoral votes.

Trump won the state in the 2016 contest and was leading in the early vote totals this year. But Biden surged ahead when mail-in ballots were counted.
Yet, Trump has refused to concede to his Democratic rival and continues to claim, without evidence, widespread voter fraud.
On Friday night, he claimed that Biden's mail-in ballots appeared out of 'thin air'.
'The 1,126,940 votes were created out of thin air. I won Pennsylvania by a lot, perhaps more than anyone will ever know. The Pennsylvania votes were RIGGED. All other swing states also. The world is watching!' he wrote.
The case had been argued last week in a lower court by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who insisted during five hours of oral arguments that the
