Summary List Placement
Florida, which is emerging as a growing financial hub that could even rival Wall Street, has been attracting scores of new residents amid the pandemic with sunnier vistas and lower taxes.
The entire Trump family could make the already-long list of people abandoning big cities for the Sunshine State even longer.
Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle are house hunting in Jupiter, Florida, The New York Post’s Jennifer Gould reported on Wednesday. His ex-wife and five children live in the area‚ and soon, other Trumps might, too. Jupiter is about 20 miles north of President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach club, Mar-A-Lago.
Earlier on Thursday, The Post’s Page Six section reported that Tiffany Trump was apartment shopping in Miami, Florida. The recent Georgetown Law School graduate is apparently looking for a condo or house in the South Beach area with boyfriend Michael Boulos. Those close to Tiffany previously told Insider’s Hillary Hoffower that she could soon take a more active role in the Trump business empire, regardless of the election’s outcome.
The Trump siblings could potentially be following sister Ivanka Trump’s lead. She and husband Jared Kushner dropped $32 million on an empty lot on a high-security private island in Miami last month. A truck — what appeared to be a moving truck — was spotted outside their Washington, DC mansion last week.
The news of President Trump’s fleeing family members comes after last week’s Capitol siege, an attack that even House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy says the president “bears responsibility” for. On Wednesday afternoon, the House voted to impeach the president for a second time for his role inciting the mob attack on the Capitol.
Heading south over returning to New York makes sense for most of the family — there’s no warm welcome waiting for them there. “There is no way they can stay in New York,” a source close to the Trumps told the Post. “They’d be tortured in the streets.”
The potential exodus to Florida keeps the Trump children solidly within an well-trodden family bubble.
After his term ends on January 20, Trump himself is expected to decamp to Palm Beach’s Mar-a-Lago, the private club known as “the winter White House.”
All the properties considered (or acquired) by Don Jr., Ivanka, and Tiffany are within a 90-minute drive of Mar-a-Lago. Donald Trump Jr. recently rang in the new year there with a maskless indoor party, while Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have notably spent holidays there — once even amid a government shutdown.
The White House did not respond to Insider’s request for comment.
