Whatever his post-presidency life entails it will unfold at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach
Donald Trump departed the White House on Wednesday with the promise: “We will be back”. But on Thursday the now former US president was awakening to a different reality as the newest of Florida’s 4.5 million senior citizens with time on their hands.
Visually at least, the first days of Trump’s post-presidency will look little different from his final ones in office. A Secret Service ring of steel surrounds his Mar-a-Lago resort on Palm Beach island; nearby roads remain closed to locals and gawkers; and the tees of the beloved golf courses he visited so frequently over the past four years await his imminent presence.
