On Thursday, Forbes reported that local officials in Palm Beach, Florida are investigating whether former President Donald Trump is violating an agreement he made with the town by living permanently in his Mar-a-Lago country club since departing the White House.
“While under financial stress in 1993, Trump sought to monetize the residential mansion by turning it into a club, but the deal he struck with the town to allow that stipulated he could only live there for seven consecutive days and 21 days in a year,” reported Nicolas Reimann. “Trump has lived there since leaving the White House, and has spent long stretches at the resort in the past, but Palm Beach has never enforced the residency clause, according to The Palm Beach Post.”
Earlier reports suggested that Palm Beach residents, disgusted at the prospect of Trump living among them, have written letters urging the local government to look into the agreement as a means of kicking him out — and it appears they are now listening.
“Town Manager Kirk Blouin told the Associated Press that the town is considering its options and the matter could be brought up at Palm Beach’s February council meeting,” continued the report.
Much of the Trump family appears to be setting up shop in Florida, with Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle purchasing real estate in Jupiter and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner setting up on a secluded island for billionaires.
