Donald Trump leases 277 acres of land on which he operates the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, but the mogul is now considering buying the land from Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach Post reported. If he were to purchase the land, Trump said he would add new villas and a hotel on the property. “It would be a great economic development site,” he said. “We would do something really, really spectacular on it.” George Ross, the Trump Organization’s executive vice president, sent the Palm Beach County Commission a letter to that effect this week.
