There was one commotion Trump himself couldn’t tolerate: airplanes flying over Mar-a-Lago to and from Palm Beach International Airport. Planes were flying over so noisily and so frequently that Trump felt the airport’s director “had a vendetta against him”. He wanted the county to move the airport, so he organized a “Noise Pollution Action Fund” with his neighbors and sued Palm Beach County four times over the planes, with little success at the time.
Things have changed now that he has become president... Mar-a-Lago has been turned into a fortress, protected by land, water, and air by the Secret Service. The club has indeed become the winter White House that Marjorie Post envisioned, also causing all of Trump’s conflicts with Palm Beach to suddenly vanish. Commercial flights can no longer fly in its airspace when the president is in residence. As to the Old Guard, an insider reports: “everyone is lining up to kiss the ring. He is the most important man in the world.”
