Trump collected 17 Million in damages for slight damage after Hurricane.


Donald Trump collected $17 million in insurance on his Mar-A-Lago property after Hurricane Wilma, but staffers can’t recall any extensive damage to the property. In a deposition from unrelated case, Donald Trump talked about the payment and the so-called extensive damage at his Florida resort. From the Associated Press:
"Landscaping, roofing, walls, painting, leaks, artwork in the — you know, the great tapestries, tiles, Spanish tiles, the beach, the erosion," he said of the storm damage. "It's still not what it was."
Trump's description of extensive damage does not match those of Mar-a-Lago members and even Trump loyalists. In an interview about the estate's history, Trump's longtime former butler, Anthony Senecal, recalled no catastrophic damage. He said Hurricane Wilma, the last of a string of storms that barreled through in 2004 and 2005, flattened trees behind Mar-a-Lago, but the house itself only lost some roof tiles.
"That house has never been seriously damaged," said Senecal, discussing Mar-a-Lago's luck with hurricanes. "I was there for all of them."
