Palm Seashore County explores reducing ties with Trump for his golfing class

A Palm Seashore County official this week examined a contract with a Trump Group affiliate to see if the county could end its lease with the president’s signature Trump International Golfing Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach.

Howard Falcon, chief assistant county lawyer, informed The Palm Beach Write-up on Wednesday he was asked by an unnamed county commissioner about whether the lease with Trump Intercontinental Golf Club could be canceled.

Falcon said he does not believe the county can conclude its lease with Trump, who pays $88,338 a month in rent for the home.

“My preliminary response is it would be a extend,” Falcon mentioned.

A law firm for Trump’s golfing study course on Thursday reported he had spoken to Falcon and there was “no basis for canceling the lease.” The attorney questioned not to be discovered by name.

Palm Seaside County’s transfer to explore severing company ties to Trump follows actions by private and govt entities elsewhere in the state.

Trump Worldwide Golf Club is Trump’s go-to location when he stays at Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach front estate. He also hosts his annual Tremendous Bowl functions at the system and has golfed at the club with foreign dignitaries, users of Congress and administration officers. He also played the program with conservative radio host Hurry Limbaugh and golfing legends Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, and famous people this kind of as Child Rock.
