Hurricane Irma Already Hit Trumps Caribbean Property, And Mar-A-Lago Estate May Be Next

The status of the Trump estate, which has been for sale for several months and is apparently used as a rental property, is not known, but the French government, which controls the side of St. Martin that Trump’s property is on, said there was serious damage in the area:

A cluster of government buildings on the island was partially destroyed, and two-dozen government officials were forced to take shelter inside a concrete structure.

“We know that the four most solid buildings on the island have been destroyed, which means that more rustic structures have probably been completely or partially destroyed,” French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told AFP.

Since the storm is headed to South Florida, Trump’s real estate holdings there, including Mar-A-Lago and three golf courses, are likely to face at least tropical storm conditions and worse if they end up being in the storm’s path. But this morning the Trump Organization tweeted it is operating as normal until further notice.

So this is the beginning of his comeuppance -- it's karma, Trump. Take it in stride. What goes around comes around.

2. Mar a Lago might make a dandy storm shelter for the homeless

If not during the storm then in the long aftermath. A real leader with a real heart would make it so.

5. but then again, we're talking Trump and he's only a "real" leader in his own mind.

15. Oh, I think I will. I believe he'll be in jail before it's rebuilt, if that even happens

That's where his insurance should kick in, if it's uninsured property then shame on him -- his loss, not mine.

16. In jail or not, you know we are going to pay to rebuild it.

People in areas that flood don't have adequate insurance. That's where federal disaster relief kicks in.

17. I'm not referring to nor ever mentioned St. Martin "people" in general

I'm referring to Trump and his properties. Do you seriously believe he doesn't have adequate insurance?

18. Neither did I - why would you think I was referring to any person other than Trump?

I was specifically referring to the likely cost to you (and the rest of us) to rebuild Trump's property via Federal Disaster Relief efforts. No. I don't believe he has adequate insurance. Most people don't.

4. Too bad the hurricane can't be focused just to take out Merde-a-Lago

and leave surrounding properties unharmed.

7. Would be nice but not probably; however, anything's possible.

Couldn't find photos of any damage to Saint Martin property but I'm sure they'll pop up soon; as well as Mar a lago.

8. Oh! Ocelot! You ALWAYS put down these ideas the second before I do!

So if we're having our druthers and focusing: just on Trump Tower. Not Manhatten, just TT. And that ugly black airplane.

19. That means he'll support a federal buyout program

He's trying to sell the property anyway
