Donald Trump and Mar-a-lago have a long history. The private club is owned by Trump, who also resides there. This ultra-exclusive place is a unique property located in the heart of Palm Beach. It is one of the most famous private clubs in the world, according to its website, and is home to many celebrities, politicians and high-profile figures.

As part of the investigation into the four ongoing cases, the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump’s Palm Beach resort and seized more than 33 boxes, reports Town and Country Magazine. Trump often likes to call Mar-a-lago his “winter White House”which he purchased for $5 million in 1985. As owner, Trump and his family visit often and the place is filled with staff members.

A former Mar-a-Lago employee, Ashleigh Sasson, worked at the resort for three seasons between 2016 and 2018. She recently revealed the only unspoken rule she noticed among members of the Trump family.

The unspoken rule of the Trump family

According to Newsweek, During her career as a waitress at Mar-a-Lago, Ashleigh Sasson served many people including celebrities and, of course, the Trump family. She said she found former President Donald Trump – whose recent behavior in court considered absurd – “very professional, always smiling, kind and generous.

Ashleigh Sasson revealed that she spends a lot of time with her children – Eric, Lara, Donald Jr, Ivanka – as well as their families. As a waitress at the resort, the former Mar-a-Lago employee noticed that the Trump family never checked their bills. The South Florida native says it was like an unwritten rule that “the family did not see their checks”.

The only time the Trump family checked their bills, especially Donald Jr., was to see how many lollipops Chloe had that day. Chloe is the fifth child and second daughter of Donald Jr. and Vanessa. It seems that she is a fan of “push-pops” and “Shirley-Temples” with added cherries. Ashleigh Sasson added that although the Trumps have never seen their checks, they were very gracious by expressing their verbal recognition and respect. When it comes to tipping, only the former president showed money to the property to show his generosity and gratitude.

Ashleigh Sasson’s Observations on the Trump Family

During her time at the private club, Ashleigh Sasson noticed that Donald Jr, Eric and Lara’s children often spent time at the Beach Club enjoying a casual meal. They savored hamburgers, grilled fish sandwiches and fries, as well as self-serve ice cream and a cooler stocked with an assortment of ice creams. Meanwhile, Ivanka, Jared and their immediate family ate healthy and kosher. The Jared salad, inspired by Mr. Kushner, was his favorite dish at the Beach Club.

Remembering the days when she worked at the club, Ashleigh Sasson also spoke about an incident during which Donald Jr. helped a paraglider retrieve his board, despite having made a puzzling request while testifying for his father. She explains that once staff members saw a paraglider take a bad dive in the water and get swept away after losing his board, Donald Jr. swam out to retrieve the guy’s board and returned it to him. Trump’s youngest son, Barron, who must have been a child at the time, was often seen kicking a soccer ball around the property with his grandmother, Mrs. Amalija Knavs. Most of the time, she followed him around the complex.

The story of Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago

When Trump bought the house in 1985, he paid an additional $3 million for Post antiques and furniture. In 1995, he transformed Mar-a-lago into a private club and built a 20,000-square-foot ballroom with $7 million worth of gold leaf. However, the former president never saw eye to eye with locals over his plans at Mar-a-lago.

He first fought with the city over the size of its American flag. The original was installed in 2006 on an 80-foot mast. However, Palm Beach ordinances prohibit flagpoles from exceeding 42 feet in height. As part of the trial, he finally opted for a smaller flaginstalled on a 70-foot flagpole, and donated $100,000 to veterans’ charities in lieu of paying the fine.

Over the years, Trump built Mar-a-lago into a profitable business. In 2014, the club earned him $15.6 million and, in 2022, $21.4 million. It is also reported that Trump banned infamous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago after he tried to approach a staff member’s teenage daughter.

All of Donald Trump’s children and grandchildren

Donald Trump was married three times and had five children from each of his wives. Ivana Trump and Marla Maples are his ex-wives and his current wife is Melania Trump. Donald Trump has three children from Ivana (Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka), one from Marla (Tiffany) and one from Melania (Barron). Of these five children, four often spend time at Mar-a-lago with their families. Let’s meet them here:

Donald John Trump Jr.

Donald Jr. was born on December 31, 1977 and is the eldest of Trump’s children. He was married to Vanessa Haydon from 2005 to 2018. The couple have five children: Kai, Donald III, Tristan, Spencer and Chloe, reports People Magazine. Donald Jr often spent a lot of time at Mar-a-lago with his family.

Ivana Marie “Ivanka” Trump

Trump’s second child has been married to Jared Kushner since October 2009. Born on October 30, 1981 and raised in New York, Ivanka joined her family’s real estate business and forged her own career. She has three children: Arabella, Joseph and Theodore. The whole family ate kosher meals at the resort.

Eric Frederick Trump

Eric was born on January 6, 1984 in New York and married Lara Yunaska, television producer and Fox News contributor, in 2014. They have two children together – Eric and Carolina. Eric and his family are also considered frequent guests at Mar-a-lago.

Barron Trump

The youngest of Trump’s children and one who might break with family tradition also frequently visited Mar-a-lago. He was still a child when Ashleigh Sasson worked at the resort, and he was often seen playing football in the resort, while his grandmother followed him everywhere.

Tiffany Ariana Trump

Marla and Trump’s only daughter, Tiffany, is kept out of the public eye. Marla raised Tiffany as a single mother, while Trump took care of his education. Tiffany is a lawyer and stays away from the Trump organization.
