Mar-a-Lago update

Trump’s three Mar-a-Lago trips since the inauguration have probably cost the federal treasury about $10 million, based on figures used in an October government report analyzing White House travel, including money for Coast Guard units to patrol the exposed shoreline and other military, security and staffing expenses associated with moving the apparatus of the presidency. Palm Beach County officials plan to ask Washington to reimburse tens of thousands of dollars a day in expenses for deputies handling added security and traffic issues around the cramped Florida island whenever Trump is in town.

Trump calls his Florida resort "the southern White House"

Chicago is the poster city for violent crime to President Trump, but he's got some mean streets right in his Florida backyard. The city of West Palm Beach, which sits just across the Intracoastal Waterway from Trump's palatial Mar-a-Lago Resort on exclusive Palm Beach, had a violent crime rate in 2015 that was equal to that of the Windy City, according to federal crime records

The club will be closed to its members through this weekend, DailyMail.com has learned.
Two members – who paid $100,000 to join the beach side club and plunk down $15,000 a year in dues – said they are angry after being told they wouldn't be let in tonight and Saturday night as Trump visits for the third weekend in a row. 'We are pi**ed off to no end,' said one of the Mar-a-Lago members who asked that his name not be used. The 66-year-old businessman said he fears being shunned by Trump if he talks to the press. 'I personally paid $100,000 years ago (the initiation fee was upped to $200,000 last month) to join and I go to dinner at Mar-a-Lago every Saturday."
