From the South Florida website: Donald Trump is suing Palm Beach County over claims that his historic Mar-a-Lago club is being irreparably damaged by jets overhead.

Trump is suing for $100 million for facade and foundation damage, and it’s one of several he’s filed against the county to stop air traffic over the Palm Beach club, the Palm Beach Post reported.

“I’ve done a great job with Mar-a-Lago,” Trump said. “I want to make sure it’s protected and not destroyed by the noise, the pollution and the soot.”

    He had to turn it into a club because he could not afford the upkeep and now he wants someone else to pick up the tab. Donald really knows how to do it!
