President-elect Donald Trump joined members of the media for an off-the-record conversation on Sunday night at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Florida.

Axios’ Mike Allen, well known for being the longtime composer of Politico’s Playbook, tweeted a group photo and called Trump “relaxed and chatty.”

Allen, CNN’s Jeremy Diamond, Bloomberg’s Terrance Dopp, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade and NBC News duo Ali Vitali and Hallie Jackson can be identified in the low-quality photo.

Melania Trump, chief of staff Reince Priebus, top advisers Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller and Jason Miller joined Trump for the chat with reporters that lasted roughly 30 minutes, according to the pool report.

Trump and his family are spending the holidays at Mar-a-Lago. After chatting with reporters, Trump then went to dinner nearby at the Trump International golf course with Melania Trump, Priebus, Conway and spokeswoman Hope Hicks, according to The Hill.

Trump has not held a formal press conference since well before Election Day.
