Last quote about Mar-a-Lago

Cathy Heller
A lot of them were actresses we've all heard of. When it's a celebrity, it has more weight than just someone who he met at Mar-a-Lago or a beauty pageant contestant. They're not people we've heard of. And that, in our society, has much more weight because they're

We're very honored to have the president here, but at the same time, his travel here is such high frequency he's not visiting Palm Beach County – he's governing from it. Whatever our priorities are, the taxpayers didn't pay this money to us to protect the

Charities hosting large galas can pay Trump's club between $125,000 and $275,000 for a single night's revelry. Even lunchtime events can cost charities between $25,000 and $85,

If you have a conscience, you're really condoning bad behavior by continuing to be there. Many say it's the dollars (raised at the events) that count. Yes. But the integrity of any or organization rests on their sound decisions and stewardship. Personally, I do not feel that supporting him, directly or indirectly, speaks well of any

As of Friday, Donald Trump is on a 17-day vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. He's there to relax after months of grueling golf at Mar-A-Lago. The president swears he's not taking it easy. Meetings and calls? Trump has to do all that during his vacation? Man, I would not want to work for Vladimir Putin. Over the weekend, footage leaked of the president taking one of his high level meetings, a summit of New Jersey's top bridesmaids. He's definitely

Wilbur Ross

Our presidents have struck up a strong relationship since meeting at Mar-a-Lago. They have charged us with resolve on trade and economic issues through new comprehensive economic dialogue. Trade discussions normally are denominated into months or years, not days. Together we made concrete progress in just 40 days. We agreed to many beneficial changes, including the resumption of U.S. beef shipments to China after a 14-year ban. But still, a lot of work

Josef Jelinek

What we've actually seen was a toning down of rhetoric over the last few months (following Mar-a-Lago) because I think President Trump genuinely believed that Xi Jinping would be able to do something to rein in North Korea. I think what's happened is that there's been a

His [Obama's] vacations to Hawaii cost millions of dollars. The political problem with President Trump, and the accountability problem, is after a period of time, the cost will be difficult for him to be able to defend.

Kathleen Clark

The president's recurrent trips to Mar-a-Lago and other properties he owns, particularly with leaders that make the visits newsworthy, means he is in effect using the presidency to promote his business. He's a very effective marketer, and he's using the presidency as though it's just part of him being famous and doesn't come with other moral, if not legal, obligations. The combination of a perceived abuse of office to enrich himself and the irony of it happening while he is recommending deep budget cuts for public services – I think resentment will

President Trump, after taking office, announced that Mar-a-Lago would be the winter White House. The U.S. proposal to hold the U.S.-China heads of state meeting there, I think, represents the importance that the U.S. side places on this meeting. China respects the U.S. side's

What matters is that the two of them get together for a successful summit, even if it's on the moon.

One of the worst case scenarios for Taiwan is a statement where, either by error or lack of preparation, Trump says something–or Xi says something that Trump doesn't contradict–that implies that they have reached a deal. What makes it so difficult is that there are so many different things going on, so many contradictions, so much incoherence: Trump contradicts himself, his secretaries contradict him, then they contradict each other.
