Real estate mogul Donald Trump claims that Palm Beach County, Florida is deliberately directing air traffic over his ritzy Palm Beach club, and he’s suing—for $100 million.
Trump says in the lawsuit filed last week against Palm Beach County that his history of conflict with Palm Beach International Airport has led officials to vindictively redirect air traffic over his historic Mar-a-Lago estate in south Florida.
Noise and vibrations from the planes are causing damage to the antique Spanish tiles, roofing and stone construction, Trump’s lawsuit says. Trump says his own Boeing 757 has been redirected, too.
“I am saving one of the great houses of this country and one of its greatest landmarks,” he said Monday, “and it’s being badly damaged by the airplanes.”
The reality show honcho and two-time presidential hopeful has sued the county twice before, the Associated Press reports, with one case ending in a lease agreement and another dismissed.
