Are Don Jr and Kimberly Guilfoyle ditching NYC? Couple may move to Florida amid fears 'they’d be tortured' after riots
Trump Jr and Kimberly Guilfoyle were looking at homes in Jupiter, which was about an hour-and-a-half away from Indian Creek Island, where Ivanka Trump and her husband just bought a $30 million plot
Following the Capitol riot on January 6, which saw a nationwide outrage, the embattled Trump family has decided to stick together after Donald Trump exits the White House. As a result, Donald Trump Jr and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle will be ditching New York and opting to settle down in Florida instead, where Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have already put down the deposit for a lavish property.
“There is no way they can stay in New York. They’d be tortured in the streets,” said a source close to the family said, according to New York Post. The insider added that Trump Jr and Guilfoyle were looking at homes in Jupiter, which was about an hour-and-a-half away from Indian Creek Island, where Ivanka and her husband just bought a $30 million plot. Moving to Jupiter seemed ideal for Trump Jr and Guilfoyle because it is where his ex-wife, Vanessa, 43, lives with their five children, and it's where one of the family's golf courses, Trump National Golf Club Jupiter, is located, a source said.
While sources have mentioned that Trump Jr and Guilfoyle's relationship had briefly hit a rough patch, it is currently back to normal. “They are committed to each other,” a source told Post, adding that they are looking for a turnkey home. “They are looking at a very secure, guarded, protected community with like-minded conservatives. There’s no way they will ever feel welcome in New York,” a source said. The move also benefits Trump’s tax situation.
Trump's eldest son's move came after it was reported that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday that City Hall will terminate the Trump Organization’s multimillion-dollar contracts to operate four popular tourist spots in the Big Apple’s public parks following last week's mob violence in the Washington DC, which resulted in the siege of the federal building.
“This president has committed an unlawful act, he has disgraced himself, he will no longer profit from his relationship with New York City,” de Blasio told reporters during a virtual morning press conference from City Hall. “It’s quite clear the president of the United States committed a criminal act,” he added. “He directed an insurrection against the United States Capitol. Period. That’s criminal, that’s treasonous.”
The attractions run by the Trump organization in the city include Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in The Bronx, the Wollman Rink at the southern part of Central Park, the Lasker Rink at the northern end of Central Park and the famed Central Park Carousel.
Eric Trump has slammed the city’s decision. “Yet another example of Mayor de Blasio’s incompetence and blatant disregard for the facts,” he said in a statement to ABC News. “The City of New York has no legal right to end our contracts and if they elect to proceed, they will owe The Trump Organization over $30 million.” He added: “This is nothing more than political discrimination and we plan to fight vigorously.”
It was also recently announced that Tiffany Trump was also looking to settle down in Florida after her father exits the White House.
