President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club could be hit by Hurricane Dorian, he explained while departing the White House for Camp David on Friday.

“How concerned are you about Mar-a-Lago being in the hurricane’s path?” a reporter asked.

“You know, I haven’t even thought about it until the question was just broached a little while ago. Yeah, it would look like Mar-a-Lago is dead center,” Trump said, gesturing with his right hand.

“Mar-a-Lago can handle itself. It’s a very powerful place,” Trump argued.

“The thing I’m worried about is the state of Florida. Because this hurricane is looking like — this could be a record-setting hurricane. Maybe things change,” Trump added.
