The White House announced the abrupt change in the president's schedule late Wednesday, hours after Republican Missouri Senator Josh Hawley said he will raise objections next week when Congress meets to affirm President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the November election.

The schedule change also means Trump will miss the glitzy New Year's Eve party held annually at his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach.

We estimate that he is preparing bigger party with much bigger fireworks.
