Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort faces potential threat as Hurricane Dorian approaches

President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort faces a potential threat from Hurricane Dorian, which is expected to make landfall in Florida this weekend.

The storm, which officials say could become a Category 4 hurricane by the time it reaches the Florida coast, is likely to land in Melbourne, Fla. — about 115 miles north of Trump’s Palm Beach resort, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

It’s unclear where exactly the storm will hit and how strong it will become, and Mar-a-Lago sits in the “cone of uncertainty” as Dorian takes shape in the coming days, according to the Times.{mosads}

Trump tweeted Thursday that people should “follow State and Federal instructions,” as the storm will be “a very big hurricane, perhaps one of the biggest!” 

Trump also on Thursday canceled his scheduled weekend trip to Poland due to the approaching hurricane, which missed Puerto Rico directly but looks to attack the eastern coast of Florida.

Florida authorities on Wednesday declared a state of emergency ahead of the hurricane.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
