Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma has destroyed most of the Caribbean. One island homeowner who lived through the damage done to his own property during the devastating tropical storm, he noticed President Donald Trump’s house just down the way. He couldn’t believe his eyes what he was seeing at the luxury Caribbean estate owned by Trump, so he quickly snapped a picture.
According to the media report, the moment when Category 5 hurricane approached, two of Trump’s properties were directly in his path. It appears that President Trump’s chateau on the Caribbean Island of St. Martin is the one structure that survived Irma’s wrath, which dashed their hopes of seeing it destroyed.
Jack Flesihman, the co-owner of Villa Mille Fleurs (located just above Trump’s St. Martin property) is in disbelief after seeing his own luxury island estate heavily damaged, unlike Trump’s house which he saw that is still standing with hardly a single roof tile lost.
Freshman quickly snapped a picture of Trump’s Chateau des Palmeirs and sent it into USA TODAY as a proof.
President Trump’s $17 million “chateau” on the Caribbean island of St. Martin survived Hurricane Irma nearly unscathed, unlike the rest of the French/Dutch island — and in contrast to the fate suffered by other celebrities’ properties in the path of the monster storm still raging in Florida.
Trump’s Chateau des Palmiers, located on Plum Bay beach in a posh neighborhood of vacation villas on the French side of St. Martin, is still standing with hardly a single roof tile lost (although the landscaping is a mess), according to pictures sent to USA TODAY by Jack Fleishman, a Californian who co-owns the heavily damaged Villa Mille Fleurs just above Trump’s place.
The rest of St. Martin was 95% destroyed after Irma hit the island on Sept. 6.
Million-dollar villas and hotels, middle-class homes and the ramshackle abodes of the poor and working-class residents suffered similar fates across the Caribbean from the power of a Category 5 storm: All were reduced to little more than kindling. At least nine people died on the French side. [Source: USA TODAY]
The President Trump’s chateau was not damaged in any way, unlike the luxury Caribbean properties of other celebrities such as liberal billionaire Richard Branson, whose private Necker Island retreat was totally damaged. “We have spent the past two days visiting team members who live on Virgin Gorda and as many people as possible, distributing aid, water and supplies,” Branson wrote in a blog post on his company’s website, Virgin, after his private island was destroyed in the storm. “We have seen first-hand just how ferocious and unforgiving this storm was,” he added.
“Our thoughts are with all the people and regions hit by Hurricane Irma, and all those in the US communities currently facing the storm,” Branson wrote. “What makes the Virgin Islands unique is its isolated location – every island has been devastated, so there is no support to come from nearby. We must get more help to the islands to rebuild homes and infrastructure and restore power, clean water and food supplies.”
Liberals celebrities claimed that Hurricane Irma was “mother nature’s wrath” after Trump denied climate change. Providing this was true, his home would be the first one to be devastated in the storm. It seems that God is protecting our president.
