Residents Implore Palm Beach Town Council Not To Let Trump Live At Mar-A-Lago

As Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial got underway in Washington D.C., the Palm Beach Town Council was meeting to discuss whether or not the former president could continue living at his Mar-A-Lago club.

The Associated Press reports that the council discussed a litany of issues, which took up most of the seven-hour meeting. The matter concerning Trump only took up the last half hour. In the end, the council did not act on the question, and it is not clear if they will revisit the subject.

The question was placed on the agenda because of complaints by fellow residents that Trump’s presence at the club will lower their property values. An attorney representing the residents asked if he could make a more in-depth presentation in April. The question went unanswered.

The residents’ main concern is that his presence at the club will attract his rabid followers and that when he got permission for the club in 1993, he promised he wouldn’t live there. However, there is no restriction in the club’s agreement with Palm Beach that prohibits Trump from living on the property. His promise not to live at the club never made it into the final deal, and as club president, he is considered an employee. Employees are allowed to live on the property.

“This is a debate that I really think is silly,” town attorney Skip Randolph said.
