  • President Donald Trump gestures as he boards Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base Md. Friday Jan. 12 2018 to travel to Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach Fla

That's because The Mar-a-Lago Club, Trump's mansion-cum-golf resort in Palm Beach, Florida, reportedly hires more of its seasonal foreign workers from Haiti than it does from almost any other country.

The resort underwent emergency repairs to pass inspection in November, the newspaper reported. The resort reportedly lacks smoke detectors and a poorly constructed staircase.

The club's kitchens were also written up for 15 violations.

Milk was stored at 49 degrees instead of 41 degrees, and curry sauce that was almost a month old was found in the freezer, according to the records.

These recurring slips are a huge let down for a club that demands a whopping $200,000 just in initiation fees from its members. The B&B was cited for two high priority violations "which could pose a direct or significant threat" to the public, according to the inspection code.

Hundreds of protesters gathered on the West Palm Beach side of the Southern Boulevard bridge Monday morning, marching across the bridge that leads to Mar-a-Lago.

Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-lago in February 2017.

.

As the president's motorcade was returning to his Mar-a-Lago resort, he invited a number of bystanders from the motorcade route to meet him at the club. They also found two out-of-order coolers that grew so warm they could have spoiled fresh food.

Both violations were fixed before the property was inspected a second time, which it passed.

Before he became president, the billionaire was known to be involved personally in the day-to-day operations of Mar-a-Lago.

Facing financial difficulties in the early 1990s, records show that Trump sold the club to a business entity he controlled for $12 million then turned the property into a private club that, unlike the others in Palm Beach, didn't discriminate on the basis of ethnicity and religion.
