Melania Trump and Donald arrive in Florida after leaving the White House for the final time on Wednesday. The Trumps’ marriage has been dogged by allegations of infidelity

Former US president Donald Trump's 2020 financial disclosure showed that his family business has been ravaged by pandemic shutdowns, with revenue plunging more than 40 percent at his Doral golf property. As president, the real-estate magnate resisted policies to slow the pandemic through mask-wearing, and insisted it remained safe for people to travel domestically.

His golf courses in the United Kingdom and Ireland saw revenue drop by roughly two-thirds, part of a 27 per cent overall decline in golfing revenue from the prior year.

Paired with flat shoes and sunglasses, the hexagon-print dress that was reportedly available to purchase for $3,700, according to Insider, marked a stark change from the outfit chosen when the former FLOTUS accompanied Donald Trump as he gave his final remarks from the White House on 20 January 2021. Deutsche Bank, the only financial agency that has loaned to Donald Trump, has hundreds of millions of dollars in loans coming due as his contacts resign and the bank looks to cut ties, according to Forbes.

"The Trumps sent the butlers home when they left so there would be no one to help the Bidens when they arrived", one unnamed source, described as "a well-placed official not associated with the incoming Biden team", told the latter publication.

He also reported an uptick in online retail sales year-over-year, up to US$1.96 million from US$930,869 in 2019.

New York City terminated $17 million in annual contracts with the Trump Organization after the riots, although three of the four were set to expire in April and the move will undoubtedly face a protracted legal fight, reports Politico.

In total, Trump valued the assets from his businesses at between $1.3 billion and $1.7 billion. He's expected to continue his studies at a school near the Trumps' Mar-a-Lago estate.

As you would imagine, when it was pressed, a member of staff would appear carrying his favourite fizzy drink on a silver platter.
