Report: Trump Ready To Spend Your Money This Summer At Another One Of His Properties
With May almost here that means that Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort will be closing for the season, but that won’t stop the president from visiting his other properties.
In fact, according to Politico, Trump is expected to be making frequent visits to his usual summer destination of Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Many people complained that Trump was a cause of chaos when he would make his weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago. Palm Beach would be filled with protesters, road closures, traffic, enhanced security, funding issues, and the general spectacle of the President of the United States coming to town.
“We’re kind of apprehensive, I guess you could say,” Nick Strakhov, a Bedminster land-use board member, told Politico. “It’s nice to be recognized. But on the other hand, if it gets to be tedious, we might start to complain.”
Just like many of the residents in Palm Beach, many of the Bedminster citizens brought up their concerns of the president making frequent visits.
“West Palm Beach is a lot bigger than we are. Those people are a little more affluent than we are. Has there been any thought to that?” resident Jane Schumann told the all-Republican town board in March.
Trump did make a visit to Bedminster while he was still president-elect. The weekend trip cost $3,683 in local police overtime.
Trump is expected to cost New Jersey $300,000 over a year, an expense that Bedminster Mayor Steve Parker said he’s hoping Washington will send a check to cover.
Parker shared his view on the situation with Politico.
“We’ve got lots of folks who’ve got a little bit of notoriety in town, and it’s just regular business for Bedminster,” he said, referring to Bedminster residents Steve Forbes and former New Jersey Governor Tom Kean.
