The White House on Monday will introduce the two turkeys up for a Presidential pardon this Thanksgiving — and will allow Americans to vote which for which one is declared the "National Thanksgiving Turkey."

Last year, the Drumstick beat out Wishbone as the nation's Thanksgiving Turkey, beating out his buddy, Wishbone. President Trump later pardoned both turkeys, which now live in a farm at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.
