Trump’s Mar-a-Lago needs careful handling with toilets and documents

Completed in 1927 by Majorie Merriweather Post and then-husband EF Hutton, Mar-a-Lago is the arguably the most famous building in Palm Beach.  Wyeth was the first architect to work on the house and his original plan — what Jane Day describes as “the bones of the structure” — remained after Viennese architect and set designer Joseph Urban completely reworked the exterior and provided the interior design.  Today Mar-a-Lago is a private club and the home of former President Donald J. Trump.

Three recent news items:

News Item No. 1:

The National Archives retrieved 15 boxes of presidential records from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club.

Keeping the boxes of records at Mar-a-Lago violates a law that requires all documents related to a president’s official duties to be kept in government possession.

“As required by the Presidential Records Act the records should have been transferred to NARA from the White House at the end of the Trump Administration in January 2021,” the National Archives and Records Administration said in a prepared statement.

Trump’s representatives are continuing to search for additional records that belong to the National Archives, the agency said.
