President Donald Trump may be affected by Hurricane Irma that is quickly approaching Florida and already wreaking havoc in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Trump is going to be very worried about destruction because he has a lot of properties there. As CNN reports:
In addition to President Donald Trump’s “Winter White House” at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, the Trump Organization has multiple properties near or on the South Florida coastline: Trump Grande, Trump International Beach Resort, and Trump Towers in Sunny Isles, Trump Hollywood in Hollywood Beach, Trump Plaza in West Palm Beach, plus Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter and Trump National Doral in Doral.
“We are closely monitoring Hurricane Irma,” a spokesperson for the Trump Organization told CNN in a statement. “Our teams at the Trump properties in Florida are taking all of the proper precautions and following local and Florida State Advisories very closely to ensure that everyone is kept safe and secure. We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to victims of Hurricane Harvey and are praying for those that are in the path of Hurricane Irma.”
But Trump’s properties aren’t going down easily—especially Mar-a-Lago. The structure has survived countless hurricanes since it was built in 1937. “This place will not move,” former Trump butler Tony Senecal told the Palm Beach Post in 2005. “That’s why, during a hurricane, you’ll always see me here. If it goes, I’ll go with it.”
Watching Hurricane closely. My team, which has done, and is doing, such a good job in Texas, is already in Florida. No rest for the weary!
