A change of scenery? Donald Trump is reportedly ditching Florida for the summer with plans to spend it in New Jersey.

Trump moved to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach on President Joe Biden's inauguration day, while daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, followed suit and settled in Indian Creek Island, which is also known as Billionaire Bunker. 

However, the former president will reportedly escape the hot Florida summer for his cooler property in Bedminster, N.J., but the weather is reportedly not the only reason for the move.

It is not yet known if Trump will be accompanied by his wife Melania and their son Barron, or if Ivanka and Jared will remain in Florida over the summer, but Mar-a-Lago typically closes in May. 

Trump will reportedly move his meetings to Bedminster, which is only 40 miles west of New York City. He is said to be planning to stay in New Jersey until Mar-a-Lago reopens in fall.

During his time in office, he regularly visited both the New Jersey and Florida properties. In 2019, Mar-a-Lago was declared as his official residence, rather than NYC.

Last week, the 74-year-old said he was "beyond seriously" considering running for president again in 2024. "From a legal standpoint, I don’t want to really talk about it yet, it’s a little too soon," he said. 

"It is far from being over," Trump recently said at a press conference in Orlando, Fla. "We will be victorious and America will be stronger and greater than ever before."

The move could also mean more fundraising events as New York residents contributed $18.5 million to his 2020 campaign, which was his eighth largest source of funds for the campaign, reported.
