Since Trump lost her presidency in November 2020, he decamped to Mar-a-Lago, much has been made over his decision to make the Palm Beach private resort and golf club his permanent domicile.
As we remember, dwellers of the surrounding community opposed Trump that he would make the luxury locale his new homestead.
He also signed a contract in which he agreed he wouldn’t do exactly what, in the end, he ended up doing anyway. While Palm Beach residents made uneasy peace with the arrangement, they end up with what they wanted all along.
As per South Florida Sun Sentinel and Insider reported on April 23, it seems that Trump is already doing preparations to depart from Mar-a-Lago, which has continued to be the site of a number of Republican donor events geared towards the 2022 midterm elections. The news of his movement is itself a garden of speculation.
Where exactly is Trump planning to go? Is he planning to eventually return to Mar-a-Lago and Palm Beach, his de facto post-presidential headquarters? And what does it mean in the long run? Keep on scrolling to find out.
The Florida weather isn’t favorable
As per an advisor who said to the Insider in April, Donald Trump’s plan to shift his post-presidential headquarters from Mar-a-Lago to the Trump-owned golf club in Bedminster, N.J. has been in the works for a while.
As the media outlet noted in their coverage, the reason for the move to begin with has to do with Florida’s summer climate, which “becomes a decidedly hot, muggy, and flat-out swampy affair.”
Insider also pointed out that the decision to head north is also a logical one, due to the fact that Mar-a-Lago usually closes its operation annually for the summer months. This coincides with Florida’s hurricane season, per Bustle.
Trump will be shifting to Bedminster, but it doesn’t mean he’s leaving Mar-a-Lago forever. As Insider and the Sun Sentinel reiterated, Trump will come back in post-summer — and he has no plans to officially make New Jersey his permanent residence.
He added the Trump camp is “moving the whole operation to New Jersey because they’re going to start doing more fundraising.” Whether or not his daughter Ivanka or his son Don Jr. will join him remains to be seen.
