Neighbors of Donald Trump’s infamous Mar-a-Lago golf club in Palm Beach, Florida, are warning the president that he cannot live at the club after he leaves the White House, following a deal he made with the city in 1993.
in a letter to the town of Palm Beach and the United States Secret Service sent this week, a lawyer representing a family that lives next to Mar-a-Lago reiterated that “Mar-a-Lago is a social club, and no one can reside on the property. “
“To avoid embarrassing everyone and give the President time to make other living arrangements in the area, we trust that he will work with his team to remind them of the parameters of the use agreement,” wrote Reginald Stambaugh, the attorney.
Multiple reports indicate that Trump has already made arrangements to move to the Sunshine State – Trump’s apartment at the club is being renovated and Melania Trump is looking for schools in Florida for Barron Trump, 14. And while Trump was heavily associated with New York City prior to his move to Washington, Trump changed his address from New York to Florida in 2019 and voted for himself as a Florida resident this year.
The members-only club was once the development of Marjorie Merriweather Post, an American socialite, until 1985, when Trump bought the property with the goal of turning it into a profitable company. Trump signed an agreement in 1993 with the local Palm Beach government that would allow him to turn private residence into a business as long as he followed a set of rules, including a limitation on how many days of the year Trump can live in March. -a-Lake.
The agreement says Trump cannot live in the club for more than three non-consecutive weeks in a year, which doesn’t bode well for the president’s plan to permanently move into the club once he moves out of the White House.
If Trump goes ahead with his plans to live in the club, he could be preparing for a complicated legal battle with the city. In the meantime, the U.S. Secret Service must make careful plans to organize agents wherever Trump decides to live as a private citizen, which could establish the agency with a shock between local laws and Trump’s demands.
While Mar-a-Lago’s neighbors seem friendly to Trump’s political stances, Trump received most of the votes from Palm Beach residents who live on the same shoreline as the club; Neighbors have indicated that the city allowed him to get away with breaking the agreement’s rules for the past four years because of his role as president. Meanwhile, residents reportedly dealt with issues related to traffic, safety, and noise.
“It’s been a circus there for four years and they’re sick of it,” said a Palm Beach resident. CNN.
In his letter, the Palm Beach family’s attorney hinted that city residents are okay with having Trump as a neighbor, but not if he chooses to live at their golf club.
“Palm Beach has many lovely properties for sale,” the letter read. “You can surely find one that meets your needs.”
