Donald Trump House Photos - Pictures of All of Donald Trump's Homes

According to an ongoing analysis by NBC News, President Donald Trump has now spent more than a year's worth of days at a Trump property since taking office. This amounts to nearly a third of his 3.5-year-long presidency.

Just last week, when his younger brother Robert Trump was hospitalized, the president visited him on Friday, August 14th, at Manhattan's New York-Presbyterian. On Saturday, August 15th, Robert Trump passed away—earlier that day, the president was photographed playing golf at his Bedminster, NJ club. (While it's widely known that Trump plays a lot of golf—not even a pandemic could stop him from hitting the links—it has been harder to track this activity as his administration often tries to conceals his golf outings.)

Moving into the White House in 2017 granted him access to Camp David as a country retreat, but Trump already had an array of impressive properties at his disposal. And judging by all the trips he's taken to them as president—costing taxpayers millions in the process—he clearly prefers his own places to a government-issued one.

Here's a survey of Trump's personal real estate portfolio.

Trump Tower Penthouse, New York City


Trump's New York City residence is a gilded, three-level penthouse 66 stories up at the top of Trump Tower, his skyscraper at 725 Fifth Avenue. (Barron, his 14-year-old son, reportedly has a floor all to himself.) His offices were also in the building, so living and working at the same address was not new to him when he moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The White House decor might be a bit subdued though, since the penthouse was modeled after the Palace of Versailles, with rococo decor and a profuse amount of gold.

Trump took Forbes on a tour of the penthouse during the presidential election and told the publication that it was the "best apartment ever built" and bragged about its 33,000-square-foot size and estimated value of at least $200 million. The trouble is, according to Forbes, "those comments were typical Trump: boastful and inaccurate." The residence is actually 10,996 square feet and worth an estimated $54 million.

In May 2019, Bloomberg reported that Trump Tower had become one of the least desirable condos in New York City for its association with the president. Not only are protests a frequent sighting by the entrance, but in July of this year, the city painted "Black Lives Matter" in giant block letters on the street in front of the building. Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was there for the occasion, said, “Black lives matter in our city, and Black lives matter in the United States of America. Let’s show Donald Trump what he does not understand. Let’s paint it right in front of his building for him.

Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach

It comes as no surprise that Mar-a-Lago is where the president has spent most of his 378 days at a personal property (he has so far spent 133 days there). In 2014, Trump proclaimed that the 128-room mansion built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post in 1927, is "the great estate of Palm Beach." He has also taken to calling it the "Winter White House," despite the fact that it is not a publicly owned or maintained building and is something of a security nightmare. Nevertheless, he has used the private club for official business, such as when he hosted President Xi Jinping of China in 2017 for a two-day summit.

Interestingly, Post had always wanted Mar-a-Lago to become a public property. She donated it to the U.S. government upon her death, but in 1980 it was returned to Post's daughters because of the $1 million in annual maintenance costs. Trump bought the 17-acre property for $5 million in 1985 and turned it into a private club ten years later, adding a 20,000-square foot ballroom with $7 million of golf leaf and spending $100,000 on four gold-plated sinks.

Today, the privilege of hobnobbing with Trump as a member reportedly involves a $200,000 (up from the pre-election rate of $100,000) initiation fee plus yearly dues of $14,000 and annual food minimum of $2,000. Trump made $15.6 million from the club in 2014.

In 2017, the Government Accountability Office tried to accurately calculate how much the president's frequent Mar-a-Lago visits were costing taxpayers but failed to get the full picture because the White House declined to provide more information. They did conclude, however, that four trips the president had taken to Mar-a-Lago over one month in 2017 had cost at least $13.6 million.

In addition to Mar-a-Lago, the president has three additional homes in Palm Beach that are collectively worth $25 million.

Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster Township, New Jersey


Arguably the president's second favorite retreat after Mar-a-Lago, the Trump National has been dubbed the "Summer White House." He has also taken to calling his trips there "working vacations."

While the main house of the Bedminster, New Jersey, property is a private club open to members (at a reported cost of $350,000), the Trump family owns cottages on the property. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner got married there in 2009, and they won an application to expand their cottage by 2,200 square feet in 2015.

Trump loves the area so much he once wanted to be buried there. (He has since allegedly switched his intended resting place to Florida.)

In 2018, it was revealed that Trump staffers received member discounts (of up to 70%) at the club's pro shop—reportedly Ivanka's idea—alarming the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a government ethics watchdog in D. C.

Seven Springs, Bedford, New York


As one of Trump's more under-the-radar residences, Seven Springs has 60 rooms—15 of which are bedrooms—in addition to a bowling alley and three pools. He reportedly paid $7.5 million for the property in 1996 and planned to turn it into a golf course but it has remained a private house to this day (probably because of vehement opposition to the plan from local residents). Today the property is worth $24 million, according to Forbes.

Bedford is about 45 miles north of New York City, and the Trump family seems to use the 50,000-square-foot house, built in 1919 by former Federal Reserve Chairman and Washington Post publisher Eugene Meyer (he was the father of Katharine Graham), as a weekend and summer getaway. Trump reportedly, and perhaps unwittingly, allowed the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi to stay in a tent there during the United Nations General Assembly meeting in 2009 when no hotels would allow Gaddafi as a guest.

Trump Winery has a long and strange history (read all about it here). To summarize, Trump paid the "bargain-basement price of $8.5 million on a deal that could ultimately be worth $170 million," netting him 1,100 Virginia acres, including the vineyards and winemaking operation "that had been meticulously cultivated by its previous owner, Patricia Kluge (who defaulted on her loans, after which the property was seized by Bank of America). He installed his second-oldest son, Eric, as president of the nascent Trump Winery.

Today, the 23,000-square-foot, 45-room main building, Ablemarle House, is part of the Trump Hotels brand (a recent search showed rates starting at $299 per night). And while Trump said at an August 15 press conference that he owns "one of the largest wineries in the United States," the winery's website itself states that it "is a registered trade name of Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC, which is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates" (head here for more on that claim).

Elsewhere in the state, Trump owns two homes in Sterling, Virginia (close to the Trump National Washington D.C. golf club) that are worth $1.5 million.

Le Château des Palmiers, St. Martin

Sotheby's International Realty

President Trump put this walled Caribbean compound on the market in the spring of 2017 with a reported listing price of $28 million, which was soon dropped to $16.9 million. Le Château des Palmiers, which Trump bought in 2013 and has used primarily as a rental property, includes nine bedrooms and 12 full bathrooms. There are two villas, in addition to pool cabanas and an estate manager's house, on the five-acre estate.

The property also features "a huge heated pool, an open air and air conditioned fitness center, a tennis court, and covered outdoor bar, [and] billiards and dining areas," according to the original listing.

Rental prices reportedly start at $6,000 per night in the low season for the smaller of the two villas and go up to $28,000 during the winter holiday season.

There is no information on whether the property has since sold, but it is still on the Trump Organization's website and Forbes estimated it to be worth $13 million in October 2019.

Donald Trump's Mar a Lago Estate Facts and Pictures

Update, August 8, 2022: Earlier today, former President Donald Trump confirmed that the FBI has raided his Palm Beach home, Mar-a-Lago. “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump wrote in a lengthy statement. “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.” The FBI has yet to comment on the matter. Get all the details of the investigation right here.

Below, a history of the property last updated during the Trump presidency.

Original, December 2019: Donald Trump likes to call Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach club and catering facility, the "Winter White House," and while that's just his nickname for the sprawling Florida estate, there is some precedent for the moniker.

Marjorie Merriweather Post

In 1973, cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post donated her 128-room Palm Beach mansion to the U.S. government to be used as the "winter White House." Post, who had inherited the Postum Cereal Company from her father and who then went on to become America's richest woman, finished building Mar-a-Lago in 1927 at a cost of $7 million (that equals to about $120 million today).

Architects Marion Sims Wyeth and Joseph Urban designed the estate, which sits on 20 acres that border the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Florida's Intracoastal Waterway on the other. (Wyeth also designed the Florida governor's mansion in Tallahassee).

Post willed her home to the American government upon her death with the intention that it be used as a warm-weather retreat for the president. But in 1981 the government returned Mar-a-Lago, which had been declared a National Historic Landmark a year earlier, to the Post Foundation, citing its high annual maintenance cost of $1 million.

Enter Donald Trump. The mogul's reported first offer for the property—$28 million—was turned down. But he persisted and the market slumped. Trump ended up getting the property for the relative bargain price of $5 million in 1985, and paid an additional $3 million for Post's antiques and furniture.

(In addition to Mar-a-Lago, Post had a considerable real estate portfolio that included an Adirondacks retreat, a Long Island mansion, a yacht she designed herself that was the largest privately-owned yacht at the time, and a Washington, D.C estate, Hillwood, that is now a house museum containing her extensive collection of jewelry, Sèvres porcelain, Fabergé, and French masterpieces.)

Trump turned Mar-a-Lago into a private club in 1995 and built a 20,000-square-foot ballroom with $7 million in gold leaf. He commandeered a coat of arms that British authorities in 1939 had granted to Joseph Edward Davies, Post's third husband, then replaced "Integritas," the Latin word for integrity, with "Trump. " He also spent $100,000 on four gold-plated sinks. Basically, much like his Fifth Avenue penthouse, there is gold everywhere you look. (When Trump is in residence, he and his family stay in a private wing of the house.)

"I have 24 acres in Palm Beach and nobody has anything like that," Trump said at a show jumping event there in 2014. "A big house is on one acre. I have 24. It's the great estate of Palm Beach." (Technically, Mar-a-Lago is on 20 acres.)

In 2016, Anthony Senecal, Trump's former butler and Mar-a-Lago's unofficial historian, offered up some secrets to the New York Times, describing the library as, "paneled with centuries-old British oak and filled with rare first-edition books that no one in the family ever read." (Senecal was also investigated by the Secret Service for threatening comments he made on Facebook about President Barack Obama. )

Trump hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with the locals over his plans for Mar-a-Lago. He has fought the town of Palm Beach over the size of its American flag. The original, installed in 2006, was on an 80-foot pole though Palm Beach ordinances forbid flag poles to be higher than 42 feet; a violation carries a daily fine of $250.

Trump sued for $25 million, claiming his right to free speech was being violated. Ultimately he and the town came to an agreement: he switched to a smaller flag posted on a 70-foot pole. And instead of paying fines, he donated $100,000 to veterans' charities.

In 2015, he sued Palm Beach County again for what he called "deliberate and malicious" moves to direct departing flights from Palm Beach International Airport over Mar-a-Lago. The suit was dropped after the election, obviously, since now there is a Secret Service-mandated no-fly zone over Mar-a-Lago when Trump is in residence.

When he opened Mar-a-Lago, Trump welcomed Jewish members, African-Americans, and gay couples, who had been prohibited from joining other Palm Beach clubs. Club members reportedly used to pay a $100,000 initiation fee and annual dues of $14,000 (along with taxes and an annual food minimum of $2,000) for the privilege of using the facilities. Following Trump's victory, the inauguration fee went up to $200,000.

It is, by most accounts, a profitable business. Trump made $15.6 million from the club in 2014. His first year in office, he made $25.1 million. Last year, that number dipped slightly to $21.4 million.

To date, Trump has spent 133 days at the property while in office. He took his first trip there as POTUS for the Red Cross Ball in early February 2017 and hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe the following weekend. Mar-a-Lago is where he was when he announced Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster as his pick for national security advisor, authorized a missile strike on Syria, and hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping for a two-day summit. According to the Government Accountability Office, four trips the president took to Mar-a-Lago in 2017 cost taxpayers at least $13.6 million.

President Trump hosted a dinner for President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil at Mar-a-Lago in March. Three attendees later tested positive for the coronavirus.

In March, Mar-a-Lago temporarily closed its doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Three visitors, including a press secretary to Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro, had tested positive for the coronavirus after visiting the club for an event hosted by the President Trump.

Earlier this month, a team of Miami Herald journalists published The Grifter's Club: Trump, Mar-a-Lago, and the Selling of the Presidency, an investigative account of the "Winter White House" and all of the business and governmental dealings—ethical and not—that take place within its walls. Among its tales of palace intrigue: Trump reportedly banned the infamous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago after the latter hit on a teenage daughter of a member.

In any case, it's apparent that Trump feels more comfortable at Mar-a-Lago than almost anywhere else. He most certainly prefers it over the White House. At Mar-a-Lago, he can let loose and be himself, unbound by strict D.C. protocols and unbothered by scores of aides and handlers.

He also has more friends down there, as opposed to, say, in Manhattan, where Trump—a lifelong New Yorker—is extremely unpopular. In fact, in September 2019, he and the First Lady changed their primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, where, presumably, he could pay lower taxes—and feel more welcome. He explained his decision on Twitter, saying, "I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state."

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York didn't miss the opportunity to express his feelings about the move. "Good riddance," he tweeted. "It's not like [Trump] paid taxes here anyway. He's all yours, Florida."

Photo of Trump with the Bible outraged the clergy: World:

US President Donald Trump was photographed with the Bible near St. John's Episcopal Church, which caused discontent among the clergy, writes The Washington Post. To clear the way for the head of the White House to the church, American law enforcement officers used rubber bullets and tear gas against the demonstrators.

Minutes after speaking in the White House Rose Garden, where Trump threatened to deploy the US military in rebellious cities, the head of state headed to the historic St. John's Episcopal Church, the path to which had by then been cleared. Trump held up the Bible for a few seconds and posed for a picture with the Scriptures outside the church, surrounded by aides including U.S. Attorney General William Barr, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

This caused indignation among the clergy. For example, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, Maryann Budde, said she was outraged that officers used tear gas to clear a crowd of peaceful demonstrators and make room for Trump. The bishop added that she was not made aware of the events that were planned by law enforcement agencies. She noted that Trump's message is contrary to the values ​​of love and tolerance espoused by the church, and also described the US president's gesture as an opportunity to use the church and the Bible as "decorations." "Let me be clear that the President has just used the Bible, the most sacred text in the Judeo-Christian tradition and one of the churches in my diocese, without permission, as the backdrop for a message contrary to the teachings of Jesus," she told CNN.

Other religious leaders also shared Budd's opinion. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, primate of the Episcopal Church, accused Trump of using the church and the Bible for "partisan political purposes." Father Edward Beck, a Catholic priest, wrote on his Twitter account: "Has the Bible ever been used in a more insincere and exploitative way?"

On Monday, June 1, hundreds of demonstrators were pushed back with tear gas and rubber bullets from Place Lafayette, where they were protesting the death of a black man, George Floyd, after a brutal police arrest. The dispersal of the demonstrators began half an hour before the recently introduced curfew in Washington.

Demonstrations over Floyd's death have swept dozens of US cities, accompanied by vandalism, looting and attacks on police. In Washington, protests have been raging for days, with regular demonstrations outside the White House. Despite the fact that they are mostly peaceful, there were numerous clashes between police and protesters, and on the night of Sunday, May 31, several fires broke out in the American capital.

Since Donald Trump became President of the United States, his actions and behavior have been the subject of discussion and ambiguous interpretations more than once. Criticism was caused not only by Trump's words, but also by his photos.

Moscow, April 9 - Vesti.Ekonomika. Since Donald Trump became President of the United States, his actions and behavior have been the subject of discussion and ambiguous interpretations more than once. Criticism was caused not only by Trump's words, but also by his photos.

In addition, the incumbent was often compared to his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Below we have collected the most controversial situations around Donald Trump, which caused public criticism.

Donald Trump and truck

In March 2017, Trump posed for photographs inside the cab of a truck during a meeting with representatives of the American Trucking Associations at the White House.

At the same time, Republicans were trying to win support for an early version of the health care bill.

Trump's meeting drew criticism in this regard, as the public believes it clearly demonstrates how the president prioritizes.

Trump and Golf

Trump's workout routine has also drawn criticism. More precisely, their absence.

The President of the United States is rumored to be very passionate about golf, but he is often seen riding a golf cart while playing.

This is precisely what caused criticism, as the public decided that the president did not train at all and was lazy.

Obama and sports

At the same time, the public likes to remember Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, who was often photographed during sports training.

This photo was released by the White House on the anniversary of Trump's inauguration. Here the president sits at his desk and works.

However, public criticism was caused by the fact that the president's desk is suspiciously empty, there is not a single paper on it, and the president himself looks rather relaxed and not interested in his work.

Trump and photos

Another photo that, according to the public, indicates the insufficiently attentive and immersed work of Donald Trump. This is where the President of the United States writes his inaugural address.

In the photo, Trump is looking somewhere to the side. At the same time, some experts note that Trump and his entourage simply do not know how to take photos in such a way that it is clear that he really works.

Trump and television

In February, the media began circulating a photo of Trump talking to reporters aboard the presidential plane.

The airplane TV is tuned to Fox News.
