I an attempt to make sense of things since Jan 20, I have been reading but not saving or posting my findings.
I started digging on Mara Lago and found interesting this. NOTE Trumps motorcade was stalled arriving there and arrived at noon or a minute later???
Mara Lago was donated to the US Government to be used as a Winter White House.
It was never used for that purpose and fell into disrepair so the GSA returned the hpuse to the heirs of the Woman who donated it.
They put itup for sale for 20 Mil and Trump offered them 15 Mil. They denied the offer and let it on the market allwin git to further deteriorate.
Trump bought the property next door for 2 Mil and squeezed them.
They ended up selling him Mara Lago for 7 Mil because nobody wanted to buy it and it fell into deep disrepair.
Trump got it deemed historical and placed in to National Parks authority
Trump used it plenty in his early presidency. He condcted every act a President would do at that location. He additionally expanded the use for not just Winter but year round in these Presidential acts.
He called it the Winter White House at first then called it the Southern White House.
Digging into Doral he bought it from bankruptcy Court from bankers ( I think those who form the corp of DC needs digging on)
Trump DC Tower is different. He bought Lease from GSA after they closed it. Tracking it’s history, It is the main Post Office branch and it’s authority was taken out of PA and moved to DC, then closed. Trump bought it in 2012 in a hard fought battle.He bought a lease. Nacy freaked out that he is trying to sell it. She wants control of the sale to approve a buyer so she can be sure they can afford the 250K a month lease and not go bankrupt.
The sale has been halted and Broker quit.
For some reason Trump wanted control of the Main Post Office and now no longer has aneed for it.
Just to add a little sauce to your findings.
Mar-a-Lago (/ˌmɑːrəˈlɑːɡoʊ/) is a resort and national historic landmark in Palm Beach, Florida, built from 1924 to 1927 by cereal-company heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. The 126-room, 62,500-square-foot (5,810 m2) mansion since 1995 contains the Mar-a-Lago Club, a members-only club with guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities. It is located in Palm Beach County on the Palm Beach barrier island, with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway to the west.
At the time of her death in 1973, Post bequeathed the property to the National Park Service, hoping it could be used for state visits or as a Winter White House, but because the costs of maintaining the property exceeded the funds provided by Post, and it was difficult to secure the facility (as it is located in the flight path of Palm Beach Airport), the property was returned to the Post Foundation by an Act of Congress in 1981.
In 1985, Mar-a-Lago was purchased by Donald Trump for around $10 million. His family maintains private quarters in a separate, closed-off area of the house and grounds. Trump frequently visited there during his tenure as President of the United States, referring to it as the Winter White House and his “Southern White House”. After Trump became president in January 2017, Mar-a-Lago was used to host meetings for international leaders, including Japanese prime minister Shinzō Abe and Chinese president Xi Jinping. In September 2019, Mar-a-Lago became the primary residence for Donald and Melania Trump, who previously held primary residence in New York City, in spite of a legal agreement Trump signed in the early 1990s that converted the estate from a private residence to a private club.
There is some good digs here. CNN looks to me as trying to bash trump and the Mar a lago. Is this simply because Trump is there or is there more to this?
New York (CNN Business)Many once-loyal members of Mar-a-Lago are leaving because they no longer want to have any connection to former President Donald Trump, according to the author of the definitive book about the resort.
“It’s a very dispirited place,” Laurence Leamer, historian and author of “Mar-a-Lago: Inside the Gates of Power at Donald Trump’s Presidential Palace,” told MSNBC host Alex Witt on “Weekends with Alex Witt” Saturday. He said members are “not concerned about politics and they said the food is no good.”
Leamer said he spoke to a number of former members who “silently walked out” after Trump left office.
