Trump Just Took Unprecedented Measures To Hide Himself During His Vacation

This weekend President Donald Trump is spending a relaxing time at his Florida golf course and resort Mar-a-lago with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a cost of around $3 million paid for by American taxpayers. Bizarrely, the Trump team has blacked out all of the windows of the area reporters are confined to so the reporters cannot see the resort nor interact with anyone.

Associated Press reporter Jill Colvin tweeted out a picture of her view of Mar-a-lago, and Bloomberg journalist Jennifer Jacobs also tweeted an image of the plastic-covered windows:

 

Mar-a-lago is supposed to be Trump’s “winter White House” but the lack of transparency (literally) is more reminiscent of a dictatorship than the home of American democracy.

This is not normal for a president to do. When diplomacy is conducted through social events, or even behind closed doors, the press are given some view of what is going on. This weekend it seems likely that the media will only see Trump and Abe within the confines of the press suite. For now we are all left wondering, what does Trump have to hide?

What do you think?
