The U.S. Treasury will pay to wall off Mar-a-Lago, as it is a National Historic Landmark, built from 1924 to 1927 by cereal-company heiress and socialite Marjorie Post. 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.
When Trump is there nearby Palm Beach County Airport (Lantana Airport) is shut down and significant financial losses accumulate for multiple area businesses.
When the President is in residence the Palm Beach region becomes a zone of temporary flight restrictions affecting flights and air operations severely within a 30 nautical mile radius. Coast Guard and Secret Service secure the two waterways, the surrounding ocean and lake, and the Secret Service also cordons off streets that lead to Mar-a-Lago during the President’s visits.
