WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and his family will fly to Palm Springs for a vacation just after Donald Trump is sworn in as president on Friday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Tuesday Obama will be joined by first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia for the traditional departure of the ex-president from Washington. They’ll use the presidential airplane, but it won’t be referred to as Air Force One because that designation only applies when the current president is on board.

The Obamas aren’t expected to have public events while in California. It’s unclear how long they’ll stay, but eventually they’ll return to Washington, D.C., as private citizens.

The Obamas have rented a home in Washington and plan to live there until youngest daughter Sasha finishes high school.
