When President Trump huddled with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida, he was helping fulfill a plan decades in the making.
Built by cereal heiress and philanthropist Marjorie Merriweather Post in 1927, the property was supposed to become a “Winter White House” upon her death. Presidents Nixon and Kennedy even spent time there.
