Neighbors at Donald Trump’s infamous Mar-a-Lago Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida, warn the president not to live in the club after leaving the White House following a 1993 agreement with the city.
In a letter sent this week to the city of Palm Beach and the U.S. Secret Service, a lawyer representing a family living near Mar-a-Lago reiterated, “Mar-a-Lago is a social club and no one can live on the property. “
“In order to avoid an embarrassing situation for everyone and give the president time to lead a different lifestyle in the area, we hope he will work with his team to remind them of the parameters of the usage agreement,” wrote Reginald Stambaugh, attorney. .
According to several reports, Trump has already taken action to move to the Sunny State: the club is being renovated at Trump’s apartment, and Melania Trump is investigating Florida schools for 14-year-old Barron Trump. And while Trump was largely tied to New York City before moving to Washington, Trump moved from New York to Florida in 2019 and voted for himself as a Florida resident this year.
The member-only club was once an American corporate housing estate by Marjorie Merriweather Post, until 1985, when Trump bought the property with the goal of becoming a money-making business. In 1993, Trump signed an agreement with the Palm Beach local government that would allow him to turn a private home into a business, as long as he adhered to a set of rules, including a limit on how many days Trump could live in Maron -a-Lago.
Under the agreement, Trump will not be able to live in the club for more than three consecutive weeks in a year, which is not good for the president’s plan to permanently move into the club after he moves out of the White House.
If Trump moves forward with his plan to live in the club, he could embark on a complicated legal battle with the city. Meanwhile, the U.S. Secret Service needs to make thorough plans to organize the agents wherever Trump decides to live as a private citizen, potentially setting up the agency in conflict with local laws and Trump’s demands.
While Mar-a-Lago’s neighbors seem friendly to Trump’s political stance – Trump received a majority of the votes of Palm Beach residents who live on the same waterfront as the club – neighbors indicated that the city let him escape the deal. violation of the role of president for the past four years. Meanwhile, residents were reportedly dealing with traffic, safety and noise issues.
“I’ve had a circus for four years and they’ve had enough of them,” a Palm Beach resident told CNN.
In his letter, a Palm Beach family lawyer hinted that the city’s residents are having a good time being Trump’s neighbor, just not if he lives at his golf club.
“Palm Beach has many nice properties for sale,” the letter said. – You are sure to find one that meets your needs.
