A spokeswoman for Melania Trump has since rubbished the claims. Mr Trump will take part in the event despite only appearing in public twice since his election loss. Donald Trump has refused to concede after the election was called for President-elect Joe Biden.
The Thanksgiving tradition will take place next week according to officials.
President Trump has not had a public event scheduled in 11 days and has only made four official appearances since November 3.
But he is now set to make a public appearance during a bizarre presidential tradition.
Each year before Thanksgiving in the US, the president ceremoniously pardons a turkey in a tradition that dates back to the 1940s.

During the event, the president is presented with live turkeys by the National Turkey Federation (NTF).
It became a tradition for the president to issue a "pardon" to a turkey, sparing its life.
This year's turkeys have already been selected and raised by the NTF's chairman and Iowa turkey farmer Ron Kardel.
The NFT tweeted on Wednesday: "Excited to bring the National Thanksgiving Turkey and his alternate back home to #IowaState! #PresidentialTurkey"

It is traditional that two turkeys are sent from a farm to Washington, DC.
The federation said the two turkeys will reside at Iowa State University after they have been pardoned.
It comes after President Trump was able to hold onto Iowa during the election.
The two turkeys will travel to Washington and stay at the Willard Hotel close to the White House.
Last year, President Trump pardoned a turkey called Butter.

The bird's understudy, Bread, was also saved from the Thanksgiving table by the president.
A spokesperson told the Daily Mail that the president's turkeys from 2019 and 2018 are still alive.
Melania Trump's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham confirmed that the Trumps will be spending the festive celebration at the White House.
She tweeted: "Holiday Scheduling Update: The @POTUS & @flotus will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday at the @WhiteHouse this year."
The Trumps often spend the festive holidays at Mar-a-Lago, the family's Florida beach resort.

Mr Trump was originally scheduled to travel to Florida next week until the news came that the family will remain at the White House.
A White house official previously told CNN: "it feels like bunker mentality."
While Trump aides told the New York Times that the president's "mood is often bleak".
The Trump campaign has continued to file lawsuits and call for recounts in key states.
Despite several lawsuits proving unsuccessful, Mr Trump maintains his stance that there has been election fraud.
