Trump claimed $17 million in alleged storm damages at Mar-A-Lago — insurance fraud could send the president to jail!
Less than three weeks after Mar-a-Lago allegedly sustained $17 million in damages, the entire Trump family converged on the club to attend Donald Trump Jr.’s wedding there. Photos from the event show the estate in good repair. Tim Frank, Palm Beach’s planning administrator in 2005, told the AP that his office would have noticed $17 million in construction on the landmark property.
“If there were $17 million dollars of damage, we sure as hell would have known about that. I would have known if there was anything in the magnitude of $100,000.”
Records also reveal that Trump did not file any large-scale construction permits on the property after the hurricane. It would have likely been illegal to conduct major repairs without a permit. More from Veterans Today.
