Florida used to be a swing state.
In November 2020, it wasn’t even close.
Thanks to President Donald Trump, Florida appears to be a solidly red state.
And Trump knows that…
So he’s taking his operation and putting it on the offense.
Tonight, it has been announced that President Trump will be moving his base of operations from Mar-a-Lago to New Jersey.
While New Jersey is typically thought of as a blue state, it has recently elected prominent Republican leaders.
For example, Chris Christie.
And with the disaster of COVID-19 as well as Joe Biden’s bungled economic response, New Jersey seems like a new battleground for Republicans.
At least, that’s what President Trump seems to be implying with this major move.

🚨BREAKING🚨 President Trump will move to Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey this Sunday -Daily Mail

It appears that the move will happen after this weekend.
A Mother’s Day brunch will be held at Mar-a-Lago.
Then after the brunch is ended, the move to New Jersey will commence.
The Daily Mail was the first to break the story:
Former President Donald Trump will move his political and fundraising base to his New Jersey golf club for the summer after attending a Mother’s Day brunch at Mar-a-Lago on Sunday, according to sources familiar with the plans.
It puts him close to New York’s financial center and within helicopter distance of glitzy parties, where billionaires rub shoulders during the Hamptons summer season.
And it means Bedminster, Trump’s championship golf course, will become the center of operations as his allies plot against their enemies in the Republican party.
A source told DailyMail.com that Mother’s Day was Trump’s signal to leave.
‘The main house will close till the fall and the Trumps will depart to spend the summer at their club in Bedminster,’ he said.
Florida Republican operative Larry Casey said Trump was a creature of habit.
‘It’s what he has done for 20 years – spend the winter in Florida and then go back north,’ he said.
Instead of beating a path to Mar-a-Lago for an audience with Trump, he added, ambitious Republicans will head to his New Jersey golf club at Bedminster.
‘All these people will want to have fundraisers for their campaigns and they’ll want to be at Donald Trump’s Bedminster club,’ he said.
‘And you’ll get the big financial wizards from New York City who can visit for the day instead of having to stay overnight in Florida.’
The Mother’s Day brunch is the last event at Mar-a-Lago before the club closes for the summer.
Trump offered a farewell of sorts last week.
‘So I just want to thank everybody,’ he said at an event to endorse Missouri Rep. Billy Long. ‘This is sort of a close-out. Now we go through the summer. We’ll be back here in October, maybe a little bit sooner.’
Though the Trump White House was notorious for leaks by those unloyal to the president, it is clear that his inner circle is secure.
Trump’s intentions on 2024 have been tightly sealed.
The only statements coming out of Mar-a-Lago have been approved by the president himself.
We hope that remains the case in New Jersey!

The real President will be at his summer WH in NJ.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump will head north for summer at his Bedminster golf club this Sunday after Mar-a-Lago Mother's Day brunch – and make New Jersey the new focal point of Republican politics
— Dina Patriot (@DinaPatriot) May 7, 2021
The rumors appear to be true.
The New York Post is now confirming this move to the northeast:
Former President Donald Trump will be heading to his New Jersey golf club for the summer on Sunday — departing Mar-a-Lago after a Mother’s Day brunch, a report said.
The move means Trump’s political and fundraising operations will be headquartered at his Bedminster golf course for the season, sources told the Daily Mail.
Since leaving office in January, Trump has been living at his Palm Beach club, which is also his primary residence.
After Mother’s Day, “The main house will close till the fall and the Trumps will depart to spend the summer at their club in Bedminster,” a source told the publication.
The seasonal residence switch is nothing new for the former president.
“It’s what he has done for 20 years – spend the winter in Florida and then go back north,” Florida Republican operative Larry Casey told the Daily Mail.
We can’t wait to hear more from President Trump!
We’re sure there are big things up his sleeve!
