From the New York site: President-elect Donald Trump would like to spend as much time as possible at Trump Tower even after he moves into the White House.

The real estate developer has been asking aides how many nights he will need to spend in Washington and whether he’ll be able to fly back on weekends to New York, or spend them at his Bedminster, N.J. home or his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach,  the New York Times reported.

During the campaign, Trump often chose to fly through the night in order to sleep in his familiar Fifth Avenue penthouse instead of at a local hotel. He’s lived in the Louis XIV-style, 24-karat gold and marble apartment for more than three decades.

Aides are reportedly hoping that he’ll change his mind once he’s settled at the White House and less overwhelmed by the dramatic shift in his life. [NYT] Katherine Clarke
