President Donald Trump plans to move to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida after leaving the White House on Wednesday, Bloomberg reported.

According to the report, Trump plans to depart for the Palm Beach resort on Wednesday morning, just before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.

The report fleshed out details of how Trump plans to spend his final hours in office. CNN reported on Friday that Trump was determined to leave Washington, DC, before his presidency ends and that aides hoped to assemble a crowd of supporters to send him off.

Breaking with tradition, Trump said he would not attend his successor's swearing-in ceremony. It's set to be an unprecedented security operation following the riot at the US Capitol that Trump is accused of inciting and was impeached over.

Several White House aides, including Trump's "body man" Nick Luna, plan to accompany him and work for him at Mar-a-Lago, sources close to Trump told Bloomberg.

Members of the president's family are also expected to head for Florida, leaving behind their longtime homes in New York City.

Prosecutors in New York are investigating the Trump Organization, and New York City authorities have said they severed contracts with Trump's businesses in the wake of the Capitol riot.

The president's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner - both White House advisors - plan to move to Miami, according to a slew of recent reports, including Bloomberg's.

As president, Trump often visited Mar-a-Lago, whose original owner had long dreamed would become a "Winter White House." The president hosted foreign leaders and dignitaries there and even sounded out policy ideas with high-profile guests and members.

Some Palm Beach residents have started a campaign to stop Trump from living there permanently, saying he was permitted to turn it into a club and resort only on the condition that it wasn't his permanent residence.
