According to the New York Times, Trump and his advisers discussed how many nights he will spend each week in the White House—and he told them that he'd prefer to "do what he is used to, which is spending time in New York when he can."

They hope that he will stay in the White House more often once he becomes used to the transition, but for now, he's pretty much going to avoid it.
