Trump to Welcome Cabinet at Camp David

President Donald Trump is heading to Camp David - with some extra guests.

The White House said Friday that the president and first lady Melania Trump have invited all the members of the Cabinet, along with their spouses to the government-owned retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.

Trump will hold his fourth Cabinet meeting and will receive briefings on Hurricane Irma and the response to Harvey.

Trump first visited Camp David, which he once described as "very rustic," in June. He recently tracked Harvey from there.

Presidents have been going to the refuge about 70 miles from the White House for seven decades. Camp David covers more than 125 acres, with a cabin for the president and about a dozen cabins for guests.
