Dogs left stranded, chained to trees as Hurricane Irma slams Florida

Dogs left stranded, chained to trees as Hurricane Irma slams Florida

As Hurricane Irma continues to approach the coast of southern Florida today the federal government is working with state and local agencies to help save lives, protect families, and assist those in need, President Donald J. Trump said yesterday as part of his weekly address to the nation. Yet an Associated Press investigation published previous year revealed there was little evidence of large-scale damage to Mar-a-Lago, and that Trump also kept some of the insurance money for his personal use rather than spending it on repairs.

Officials are calling it animal cruelty in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Donald Trump's resort, as well as the rest of Palm Beach County and the surrounding barrier islands have been ordered to evacuate, TIME reports.

It's unclear if Trump plans on releasing a rap album or not.

The town of Palm Beach, home to Mar-a-Lago, sits on one of those narrow islands. The property itself stretches east-to-west across the island, touching both the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway - its name means "Sea-to-Lake".

Two years after a series of storms, the real-estate tycoon said he didn't know how much had been spent on repairs but acknowledged he pocketed some of the money. The building, which has 3-foot-thick walls, has reportedly survived every hurricane since.

Others familiar with the storm's effects at Mar-a-Lago, including Trump employees, remember it differently.

Delray Beach has a high concentration of sober homes in the area, and sources working for the county say that is where the majority of individuals living in sober homes are seeking shelter.

"That house has never been seriously damaged", Trump's long-time (and controversial) former butler Anthony Senecal said in an interview with the AP.

"That's why, during a hurricane, you'll always see me here". Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach was his first golf club and that opened in 1999, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Hallie Jackson, of NBC News, reported Friday that all three of those Trump golf clubs were already closed.
