Donald Trump has decided to let Vice President Mike Pence be the President of the United States of America for the weekend.

“President Trump wants to clear his head, and feels that Mike Pence has earned the right to run the country for at least a couple of days,” says White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

“We just hope he doesn’t decide to start any wars, make marijuana legal or patch things up with Rosie O’Donnell.”

This will mark the first weekend Trump has let another person be President, but he promises it won’t be the last.

“Part of being President is having the power to decide who else can be President, while I’m President.

“Plus, I have a thing this weekend I can’t miss.”

The White House has even discussed creating a The Apprentice-esque contest in which normal citizens could compete against each other while performing Presidential tasks for a shot at being the President for an entire week.

“We feel as if the Presidency shouldn’t be limited to just one person experiencing it every four years,” says Pence.

“I’m just the first of what we hope are many temporary Presidents who will each get to control the company in their own way.”

When asked what his first order of business will be Pence response was swift and to the point.

“Nuclear war.”
