Trump to use Trump National Golf Club as new headquarters
President Donald Trump will use the Trump National golf course as a new headquarters and conference center, the White House announced Wednesday.
The new Trump National, which opened last summer, will be home to the White Sox and the Trump family’s new Trump Organization, according to the president’s executive order.
The president also announced he will use it to host a series of events during the 2020 and 2022 seasons, and to host concerts at the course.
The White House did not specify how much Trump will pay for the property.
But it said the cost of leasing the course to the Trump Organization would be between $100 million and $200 million.
The property includes more than 1,000 rooms, restaurants, shopping, a casino and office space, the president said.
The $150 million building will be a symbol of the Trump administration, said White House press secretary Raj Shah.
Trump has made the property a focus of his economic policies.
The new president has also sought to transform the property into a hub for trade and investment, which will make it a more appealing location for trade delegations.
Trump also announced a partnership with the Boston-based National Trust, which is an affiliate of the Trumps family trust.
The administration has long pushed for a new National Trust for the United States, which would hold the Trump International Golf Links and the Doral golf resort in Miami.
The trust will operate under a separate partnership, according the White Houses announcement.
