President Trump’s residence at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is currently being reviewed by Palm Beach officials. The resort has an agreement that limits how often and for how long a guest can reside at the resort. Trump founded the club in 1995 after buying it 10 years earlier. The resort has become a “home away from home” for the Trump family over the years, with members sending weekends and holidays there.
The former president and first lady both boarded Air Force Once prior to Biden’s inauguration and fly to the Florida resort where the couple has been ever since.
According to reports from Fox News:
“Our town attorney, John Randolph, is reviewing the Declaration of Use Agreement and our Code of Ordinances to determine if former President Trump can live at Mar-a-Lago,” town manager Kirk Blouin said in a statement to Fox News.
Now more than 25 years ago, Trump signed an agreement that, in part, restricted guests, including himself, from staying at the club for more than “three non-consecutive seven day periods” during one year. He has already broken the agreement on multiple occasions during his presidency, according to CNN, staying at what’s been dubbed his “Winter White House” longer than that time.
In December, residents, including the DeMoss family, who live next-door to Mar-a-Lago, addressed a letter to Palm Beach officials and the U.S. Secret Service citing the 1993 agreement, arguing Trump has no legal right to live there full time. The letter, obtained by The Washington Post, warned that an “embarrassing situation” could be avoided should Trump move in post-presidency and later be evicted.
A spokesperson for the Trump Organization told the Post at the time, “There is no document or agreement in place that prohibits President Trump from using Mar-a-Lago as his residence.”
Since relocating to Florida, the former president has already set up his official post-presidency office to conduct official business. The Republican powerhouse has also gotten a warm welcome from Florida Republicans who are eager to work with Trump. [Related: ‘Hometown President’ Trump gets Warm Welcome from Florida Republicans]
