Court records show President Donald Trump’s lawyers in Miami have reached a tentative settlement with the business traveler whose bed bug wounds were reportedly so severe that he sued the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort.

Welts allegedly covered the man’s back, face, and arms after spending the night at the recently renovated resort.

A one-page report in the court documents filed by court-appointed mediator Frank Allocca states simply, “an agreement was reached.” No further details were reported, according to GossipExtra.

The New Jersey insurance executive Eric Linder, 63, whose March 2016 stay at the resort’s $300-a-night Jack Nicklaus-themed villa resulted in an express-care clinic visit, filed suit in late July.

Photos of his back and neck accompanied the filings. He also chose to leave behind several business suits at the Trump resort, for fear of harboring the bugs upon his return home, GossipExtra reported.

“I was deceived by Trump’s image,” Linder told the Miami Herald earlier this year. “It’s a 5-star resort where this shouldn’t happen. It was really traumatic.”

Neither Linder, nor lawyers from either side returned calls for comments, GossipExtra reported. [GossipExtra] — Gabrielle Paluch
