Workers plant palm trees outside Trump’s West Palm Beach golf course to block the view

Donald Trump is spending his first days since leaving the White House focusing on building a border wall – not the wall between Mexico and the US but a wall of palm trees around his West Palm Beach golf course.

Workers were seen planting huge trees along the edge of the Trump International Golf Club in Florida Friday to block the view of the course from unwanted eyes. 

Trump, who has never been one to shy from attention, appears to be want some privacy as he starts his new life with a full-time move back to his Mar-a-Lago estate.

The tree-planting comes just one day after a CNN cameraman shot footage of the former president, who now faces an impeachment trial, enjoying a spot of golf on the Florida course while still sporting a red ‘MAGA hat’.

A group of workmen used diggers and spades to dig deep holes in the earth to make way for the soaring palm trees around the golf course Friday.

The trees were then seen being planted in the earth before the men filled in the earth around the roots. 

A sign was also erected by the newly planted trees that read ‘Warning! No trespassing’.

The warning sign said it was issued by Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and labeled the area as belonging to the Trump International Golf Club.  

The quest for privacy comes after Trump was spotted playing golf on the course Thursday – his first full day since he left office and became a private citizen.

He sported a white polo shirt, dark trousers and his signature red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat – in a sign that he perhaps wasn’t quite ready to let go of his White House dream just yet.

He was transported to his course via government motorcade from Mar-a-Lago, after he and Melania returned to the estate Wednesday. 

Trump spent much of his time as president playing golf at his various courses across America and around the world.

He was on his course in Virginia when he learned he had lost the presidential election to Joe Biden on November 7. 

And with his permanent move back to Mar-a-Lago coupled with his newfound lack of government employment he will be able to enjoy his favorite hobby even more. 

Trump returned to the Sunshine State Wednesday morning as he refused to follow tradition and attend the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

He and Melania flew on Air Force One landing to a small welcome party from MAGA supporters welcoming their arrival home.  

The rest of the Trump clan is also relocating to Florida with Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle said to be looking at properties in Jupiter, 20 miles to the north of Palm Beach. 

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are making Miami – which is 70 miles to the south – their base and removal teams were seen packing up their DC townhouse Thursday for the move. 

The former senior presidential advisers have signed a one-year lease on a condominium in one of Miami’s most coveted oceanfront buildings, Arte Surfside, according to recent reports.

Arte is one of the most expensive complexes in the Surfside neighborhood, with an average rental price of nearly $47,000 per month. 

The couple and their three children are said to be using the large, unfurnished unit as a temporary home while they build a more permanent one on a two-acre plot they purchased on Indian Creek Island for $31.8million late last year.  

The island off the coast of Miami got the nickname ‘Billionaire Bunker’ because of the high-profile residents that have settled onto the island, including model Adriana Lima and billionaire businessman Carl Icahn of New York City.    

Tiffany Trump – who got engaged this week – is also rumored to be moving to Miami.    

On Friday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that the House’s article of impeachment will be sent to the Senate Monday, kicking off the start of Trump’s impeachment trial.   

‘I have spoken to Speaker Pelosi who informed me that the articles will be delivered to the Senate on Monday,’ Schumer said.

The decision to move forward comes after new Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a proposal that would have delayed a trial until mid February in part to give Trump’s legal team time to prepare.
