New Government Rule: Presidents Get to Charge More for Memberships at Their Resorts

$200,000

The new initiation fee to join the Mar-a-Lago resort owned by Donald Trump and designated the “Winter White House.” The fee, which is double the pre-presidency rate, was announced shortly after Trump’s election in November and took effect Jan. 1.
