Three of the golf clubs that President Donald Trump owns in south Florida and his so-called "winter White House" could be damaged by Hurricane Irma this weekend as they all lie in the predicted path of the storm.

A video released by the White House of Trump's briefing inside Laurel Lodge at Camp David showed Trump flanked by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and posters of Florida with projections of the storm's path.

A spokesperson for Trump's properties said in a statement, "Our teams at our four properties in Florida are taking all of the proper precautions and are following local and Florida state advisories very closely to help ensure that everyone is kept safe and secure".

Federal Government is ready!

"The program was already in trouble" before Hurricanes Harvey and Irma began approaching the USA, said Karen O'Neill, an associate professor at Rutgers University who studies how policies about land and water affect government power.

The States of Alabama, Georgia, Florida and SC have declared states of emergency while about seven million people are being evacuated. Climate change is also responsible for sea-level rise, which could cause powerful storm surges and flooding that one day devastates some of Trump's real-estate holdings in the US.
