    He rents or leases or receives lodging free as part of his compensation package. It’s
    The club is an LLC and attempt to make a profit. His creditors would have to first show he owns it. He couldn’t live in a suite in the Doral Hotel and prohibit the hotel from being subsumed in bankruptcy

    That is a very good point.

    Of course it is.

    Besides, Trump has a negative net worth, for what he allegedly owns, a dozen golf courses and hotels, nothing’s making a profit. He’s got zero equity. He’s got some cash from the loans he’s taken on the properties. But he wins very little outright.

    and as he said of Biden, let diaperdon prove he’s not a rapist and poor old man

    Doesn’t necessarily have to, and I’m sure he will cheerfully ignore a verbal promise made 27 years ago.

    State guidance on the issue notes that legal residency is not defined in Florida law, but the courts and the state’s division of elections have "construed legal residency to be where a person mentally intends to make his or her permanent residence. "

    Evidence of that intent can come from obtaining a Florida driver’s license, paying tax receipts, paying utility bills for the residency, claiming a homestead property tax exemption, receiving mail at the address, declaring a county as domicile and “doing other activities indicative or normally associated with home life,” according to the guidelines from the Florida Department of State.

    “A business address is not typically a satisfactory legal residential address but if the person resides there despite the zoning ordinance, the address could become the person’s legal residential address,” the guidelines read.

    In September 2019, Trump filed a “declaration of domicile” with the Palm Beach County clerk and comptroller declaring himself to be a “bona fide resident” of Florida at Mar-a-Lago — 1100 S. Ocean Blvd. in Palm Beach. He listed the White House and his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., as other “places of abode.”

    In the early 1990s, Trump converted Mar-a-Lago from a private residence into a social club, signing a detailed “use agreement” for the property and conveying ownership to a corporate entity he controlled named Mar-a-Lago Club Inc.

    The 1993 agreement stipulates that club members could use guest suites for no longer than seven days at a time for three non-consecutive weeks per year. Trump’s lawyer said during a council meeting at the time that Trump would not live there, “except that he will be a member of the Club and would be entitled to use its guest rooms," according to a transcript obtained by The Washington Post.​

    Mar-a-Lago is taxed as a private club, not a residence. So can President Trump vote as a Florida man?

    Seeing as how he's a Florida resident:

    Well them four walls of Raiford are closing in on me.
    Doing three to five hard labor for trying to kill democracy.

    It would be delicious if he ended up in bankruptcy and legal findings decided that he was not actually a legal resident of Mar-a-Lago and he lost it along with everything else.

    Doesn't he have a reserved bench in bankruptcy court, considering how many times he's been there?

    "Well, that's the news from ex-President Wobegon, where all my women are hookers, all my men ass-kissing sycophants, and all my children are white and privileged."

    Trump has proven on the world stage that he’s an amateur negotiator, even after 50 years of experience as an alleged real estate developer.

    America chose the Biden hat instead of the MAGA hat.
