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.
