Trump's elderly neighbour claims hi-tech security at his Mar-a-Lago estate is causing her brain injuries
'The security concerns remain of paramount importance including issues associated with a microwave fence'
An elderly woman residing in Palm Beach near Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate has claimed that the hi-tech security protecting the property is giving her brain injury. The Republican leader is planning to shift to the posh area after leaving the White House in January 2021, but his 82-year-old neighbor has taken legal action to stop him from doing so, The Sun reported. Attorney Reginald Stambaugh has challenged Trump’s return to his 126-room, 17-acre private resort and golf club in Palm Beach on behalf of the woman.
In his complaint to the Town of Palm Beach, the lawyer stated, “the security concerns remain of paramount importance including issues associated with a microwave fence which is known to cause permanent brain trauma and other debilitating injuries. My client exhibits symptoms of exposure." Stambaugh has also said in the letter that his client is against the president’s plan to move to his beloved luxurious property because it would result in the low value of the area's property. The name of the client was not revealed by the lawyer, but the Washington Post reported that the woman’s name is Nancy S DeMoss, whose house is on the northwest side of Mar-a-Lago.
In November, it was reported that Trump will shift to his Mar-a-Lago estate, after some renovation, along with many Secret Service agents after Joe Biden takes over the office. "For operational security reasons, the Secret Service does not discuss specifically or in general terms the means, methods or resources we utilize to carry out our protective mission,” a spokesperson for the Secret Service said earlier.
The letter written by Stambaugh also mentioned an agreement that bans anyone including Trump from living there after the seaside property was converted into a business. According to the 1993 contract, the members of the club are only allowed to stay overnight there. In addition, they can live there for no more than 21 days per year. Besides, at the time, the president allegedly agreed to make sure that there were no more than 500 members at a time and that more than half of them either lived or worked in Palm Beach. 1993 Palm Beach Post articles stated that Trump's then-attorney Paul Rampell also said to the town council at the time, “another question that's often asked to me is whether Mr Trump will continue to live at Mar-a-Lago. No, except that he will be a member of the club and therefore will be entitled to the use of guest rooms.”
But considering the current scenario, Stambaugh added in the letter: "In order to avoid an embarrassing situation for everyone and to give the President time to make other living arrangements in the area, we trust you will work with his team to remind them of the agreement. Palm Beach has many lovely estates for sale and surely he can find one which meets his needs.” However, the lawyer’s claims have been refuted by The Trump Organization that said, "there is no document or agreement in place that prohibits President Trump from using Mar-a-Lago as his residence".
