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.
But the upkeep proved too expensive, and the property returned to private hands, eventually ending up as a private club run by Donald Trump.
