Hurricane Irma has

"Our three private properties in Florida - The Mar-a-Lago Club, Trump International Gold Club, Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter have all been closed". At this point, the question is not will Mar-A-Lago be hit by Irma, but how hard?

In Key West, residents are under mandatory evacuation orders from Monroe County as of this morning. The National Hurricane Center reported that hurricane force is beginning to speed up as wind gusts in the area.

Some social media users have posted the address and Global Positioning System coordinates of Mar-a-Lago and pleaded with Irma to head there.

Irma was headed for a direct hit on Florida Sunday, prompting some to estimate it could be the most expensive storm in USA history.

"I think now with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm going to ask for a speedup".

The AP also looked at building records and permits that showed no significant construction took place at Mar-a-Lago after the storm, aside from $3,000 in repairs to lighting and a cleaning of a beachfront pool.

Trump also owns a multi-million-dollar mansion on St. Martin, which Irma is headed for.

Sitting on Plum Bay on the island of Saint Martin, about 200 miles east of Puerto Rico in the Leeward Antilles, is an 11-bedroom home that Trump owns.

Trump has not commented on the evacuation of his property, though he has been active in tweeting about Irma.

"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", said the statement.

Mr Trump said he received a $17m insurance payment in 2005 for damage at his Mar-a-Lago resort caused by Hurricane Wilma, but digging by the Associated Press found "little evidence" of large-scale damage to the property.
