Donald Trump was born and raised in Queens, New York. And while he had a variety of other residences, he lived in Manhattan for much of his adult life. For the last 4 years, of course, he lived in the White House in Washington DC.
But since being voted out of the presidency, Trump has to find a new residence. During his time in the White House, he announced that he would be leaving New York to live in Florida. But he hasn’t been warmly welcomed there. According to multiple sources, the ex-President can’t find a place to live.
Former Deputy Assistant General Harry Litman told MSNBC’s Alex Witt on Sunday, “What it really shows is how toxic a figure President Trump has become in the entire country. He couldn’t possibly live in New York, his old residence, and wherever he is, there’s a bad odor. What’s significant is the, again, the polarization and how a majority of the country doesn’t even want him in their state.”
CNN also reported that Trump has run into a fight with his plan to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently. “The former president’s decision to make Mar-a-Lago his permanent residence could be a violation of rules set forward in a previous agreement with the town when he decided to convert the private residence into a club in 1993. Among those conditions were that club members, including Trump, could only spend a maximum of seven consecutive days and no more than three weeks a year at the premises.”
