The president-elect leaves Chicago for his new home aboard an Air Force presidential jet. Joined on the flight by Axelrod and Gibbs.

Orders a cheeseburger on board, tells reporters: “I gotta say I choked up a little bit leaving my house today.”

Also says he’s looking forward to being in Washington, but not necessarily living in a hotel for two weeks: “We kind of did that for two years.”
