Sinkhole Suddenly Consumes Land in Front of Mar-A-Lago, Subtlety

A sinkhole opened up right outside Mar-a-Lago also known as the Winter White House in Palm Beach

Fix crews are working to clear an area in front of Mar-a-Lago where a sinkhole appeared.

A sinkhole has opened up at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago resort in West Palm Beach, Fla. Utility crews from West Palm Beach were working on the hole and were expected to do some exploratory excavations in the area, according to reports. Sinkholes aren't exactly rare occurrences in Florida, and the best guess is that the culprit in this case is a newly installed water main.

New documents released Thursday by the conservative group Judicial Watch are some of the first to put a price tag on Trump's frequent visits to Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach, Florida, club.

Others questioned if the sinkhole hadn't been mistaken for something else.




Trump spent several weekends at his exclusive estate since taking office in January, including hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping. The initiation fee was recently doubled to $200,000.

Trump is on a nine-day trip that began in the Middle East and will end in Italy.

Sinkholes, which are common in Florida, are caused by water erosion.
