The New Jersey home that Donald Trump bought with his wife Melania is being used by his family to run a massive empire of real estate and luxury properties.
The property was built on land he bought in 1996 from his father, Fred Trump, but was purchased by the Trump Organization in 2015.
In the process, it became Trump’s private golf club, Trump National Doral, and has since been the focus of a massive investigation into potential conflicts of interest, with federal prosecutors looking into whether he’s violated ethics laws by buying the property without the knowledge of the government.
Here are the top five things to know about the $25 million home, according to real estate experts and a report by the Center for Responsive Politics.
It’s an old building: The home was originally built in the early 1970s.
At one point, it housed a spa and tennis courts.
But in 2009, Trump purchased the home from his parents, Fred and Mary Trump, and converted it into a club for his golf and modeling projects.
The club is now home to Mar-a-Lago, which has hosted Trump since 1995.
The Trump Organization owns the property: In the 1970s, Trump was living in his own home at Trump National Golf Club, and he later bought a small parcel in the neighborhood for his own use.
But the Trump organization has owned the property since 1995, according.
In 2017, Trump bought the property for $25.5 million, and the Trump family is the majority owner of Mar-A-Lago.
Trump has used the property to host his family and his businesses: In addition to Mar, the Trump home is home to the Trump National Gator Club, the Donald J. Trump National Invitational Golf Course, Mar-at-Lago Club and the Mar-Ada Resort.
The home is owned by a company owned by the Trumps: The Trump organization owns the home, which is now in Trump’s personal ownership.
According to the company’s website, the company was incorporated in 2014.
The Trumps are the majority shareholders, according the company.
Trump used Mar-as-Lago to host political fundraisers: According to a March report by CNN, Trump hosted a political fundraiser for his political campaign at Mar-As-Lago in June 2016.
Trump also used Mar to host a fundraiser for a political super PAC.
The fundraiser was attended by some of Trump’s former campaign advisers and his daughter Ivanka Trump.
In October 2016, the Tramps hosted a fundraiser at Mar.
At-Lago for their daughter Ivanka’s father, Eric Trump, the former New York City mayor, according CNN.
