Community where Trump finally moved to about to ''evict'' him

The town of Palm Beach, Florida, is reviewing Donald Trump’s use of his Mar-a-Lago Club as a residence.

According to reports by HuffPost and an earlier one by New York Times, the former president is set to once again violate a length-of-stay provision he signed with the town three decades ago.

On Wednesday, Trump was 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.

Randolph confirmed that he is reviewing the issue, but said he has not made any preliminary findings.

The Trump Organization ― Trump’s family business that operates Mar-a-Lago, his golf courses, his hotels and his various other properties ― said in a statement: “There is absolutely no document or agreement in place that prohibits President Trump from using Mar-a-Lago as his residence.”

The twice-impeached former president bought the winter estate in 1985.
