Mar-a-Lago is an estate and National Historic Landmark in Palm Beach, Florida, built from 1924 to 1927 by heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post.
Post envisioned the house as a future winter retreat for American presidents and foreign dignitaries, and following her death in 1973 it was bequeathed to the nation.
However, successive presidents declined to use the mansion, which was returned to Post’s estate in 1980 and eventually purchased by Donald Trump, later 45th President of the United States, in 1985.
The 126-room, 110,000-square-foot (10,000 m2) house contains the Mar-a-Lago Club, a members-only club with guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities.
The Trump family maintains private quarters in a separate, closed-off area of the house and grounds.
The American Red Cross holds its annual fundraiser last weekend at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and the President was expected to grace the occassion.
While Americans were protesting the executive order that banned seven muslim countries from entering USA all accross the world, the Trumps were enjoying themselves.
The Twitter loving President condemned the Seattle judge that put the executive order in abeyance over the weekend.
You will agree with me that this President is wealthy and knows how to enjoy life.
