To know Donald J. Trump it is best to start in his natural habitat: Palm Beach, Florida. It is here he learned the techniques that took him all the way to the White House. Painstakingly, over decades, he has created a world in this exclusive tropical enclave and favoUrite haunt of billionaires where he is not just president but a king. The vehicle for his triumph is Mar-a-Lago, one of the greatest mansions ever built in the United States. The inside story of how he became King of Palm Beach-and how Palm Beach continues to be his spiritual home even as president-is rollicking, troubling, and told with unrivaled access and understanding by Laurence Leamer.In Mar-a-Lago, the reader will learn how Donald Trump bought a property now valued by some at as much as $500,000,000 for less than three thousand dollars of his own money; why Trump was blackballed by the WASP grandees of the island and how he got his revenge; how Trump joined forces with the National Enquirer, headquartered nearby, and engineered his own divorce; how by turning Mar-A-Lago into a private club, Trump was the unlikely man to integrate Palm Beach's restricted country club scene, and what his real motives were; what transpires behind the gates of today's Mar-a-Lago during "the season," when President Trump and assorted D.C. power players fly down each weekend.
