"We are closely monitoring Hurricane Irma", a Trump organization spokesperson told CNN.

Mar-a-Lago, which was called Trump's "Winter White House" after he spent many of his weekends there during the start of his precedency, is also in that path and was ordered to evacuate Friday.

The decision to close the properties follows an order from Palm Beach County officials telling begin evacuating the area by 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 8.

The storm has already left at least 14 people dead in a trail of destruction across the Caribbean and damaged thousands of buildings, including the President's St Martin mansion.

Mandatory evacuation for the entire town remains in effect.

The Trump organisation has confirmed that precautions are being taken to help protect Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago golf resort as well as his other properties in Florida. Please gather the essentials for three to four days, including clothing, medicine, important documents and communication devices.

Stanley Fischer To Step Down From The Federal Reserve
The resignation of Stanley Fischer, 73, creates another vacancy on the council that oversees the U.S. central bank. Trump has nominated Randal Quarles for one of the vacancies as vice chairman for bank supervision.


Yet an Associated Press investigation published previous year revealed there was little evidence of large-scale damage to Mar-a-Lago, and that Trump also kept some of the insurance money for his personal use rather than spending it on repairs.

Irma has already killed 11 as it ripped through the Caribbean, and still maintains the highest category 5 status, with 175 miles per hour winds.

Mar-a-Lago, which overlooks the ocean on Palm Beach, was built in 1927. That's why, during a hurricane, you'll always see me here.

St. Martin was among the many small islands where Hurricane Irma first made landfall.

"We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to victims of Hurricane Harvey and are praying for those that are in the path of Hurricane Irma".

But Trump got back on track, issuing his video warning people in Irma's path to get out now.
