Former US president Donald Trump may relocate to New Jersey when his Florida resort Mar-A-Lago has its scheduled summer closure, according to a new report.

The 74-year-old, the first American president to be impeached twice, could move his home base to Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, according to close advisers.

One person told Business Insider: “They’re moving the whole operation to New Jersey because they’re going to start doing more fundraising.”

Mar-A-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, has been Mr Trump’s base since he left office in January this year and has been a hub for the GOP, as well as a base for fundraising.

Just as Mar-A-Lago became a GOP base, so could the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ, pictured here on August 14, 2020, when Trump addressed the City of New York Police Benevolent Association, with a crowd wearing MAGA hats

But it traditionally closes each summer after Memorial Day due to the hot and humid weather, as well as the dangerous hurricane season.

Now it looks like the new base for Trump loyalists could be temporarily moved 1,200 miles away to his plush, east coast club.

The club opened in 2004 and is about an hour from Trump Tower in Manhattan, with the most expensive membership reportedly costing $300,000 annually.

The New Jersey club was the location of daughter Ivanka Trump’s 2009 wedding to Jared Kushner

Bloomberg reported that following the January 6 Capitol riots, the PGA of America cancelled it as the location of next year’s championship amid fears it would damage its brand.
