Palm Beach Conducting 'Legal Review' Of Trump's Use Of Mar-A-Lago As A Residence

HuffPost
By S.V. Date

The town of Palm Beach, Florida, is reviewing Donald Trump’s use of his Mar-a-Lago Club as a residence, even as the former president is set to once again violate a length-of-stay provision he himself agreed to three decades ago.

At 11:32 a.m. Wednesday, Trump will have been at his property for more than seven consecutive days in 2021, having arrived a week earlier, half an hour before his successor, Joe Biden, was sworn in at the U.S. Capitol.

A 1993 “special exception use” permit that Trump signed, allowing him to convert the mansion into a for-profit social club, stipulated that only 10 guest accommodations were allowed, and that no one would stay there longer than seven days, and not more than three times a year.

Palm Beach Mayor Kirk Blouin told HuffPost that Trump’s apparent decision to live there permanently is being examined by the town’s lawyer. “This matter is under legal review by our Town Attorney, John ‘Skip’ Randolph,” Blouin said, adding that the matter may come before the town council at its Feb. 8 meeting.

2. I'm Putting Money Down Right Now, That He WILL Be Allowed To Do Whatever He Wants

At the very least, he will Appeal any decision against him. Delay, Delay, Delay for as long as possible, while still being able to continue living there.

Please get back to me When (Never), he is held accountable for violating a Law or Rule.

4. Revoke his liquor license.

Revoke his liquor license.

A residence should not need or have one.

Just think of the effect on a golf clubhouse.

11. Revoke the Certificate of Occupancy, raze it, let him build a

mausoleum and a statue honoring himself, seal him inside (deceased or not), problem solved.

17. He got 200M from MAGAts.

He's probably more flush with cash now than he's been in the last 20 years.

16. Palm Beach will cave.

For some completely inexplicable reason, people cave to Trump all the damn time. I'll believe they enforce their contract when I see it. Trump will say, "Fuck you, sue me", hire crazy lawyers, and wait it out with his MAGAt donations funding the whole thing.

Wouldn't surprise me.
