When Trump turned the private residence into a social club in 1993, he agreed to certain limitations.
For example, there could be no more than 500 members, there were rules concerning parking and traffic, and club members, Trump included, could not spend more than seven consecutive days at Mar-a-Lago, or no more than three weeks total a year.
Trump returned Mar-a-Lago on January 20, skipping the inauguration for President Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, many, once-loyal members of Mar-a-Lago are leaving because they no longer want to have any connection to Trump, according to the author of the definitive book about the resort.
