PALM BEACH — Donald Trump may be the leader of the free world, but everyone’s — and that includes his local friends — turning away from him now.
Some 20 charities that have held their annual fundraisers at Mar-a-Lago have said “thanks, but no thanks” to The Donald and are going to hold their fancy dinners elsewhere.
There are only two organizations who say they are committed to keeping their events at Trump’s gold-gilded resort: The Palm Beach Police Foundation Ball and the Achilles Freedom Team.
That’s waaaaaay down from the 21 that held events there last season.
There are a few holdouts who aren’t sure what they’re going to do: The Palm Beach Habilitation Center, Bethesda Hospital Foundation Women of Grace Luncheon and Gateway for Cancer Research.
Knowing how Trump holds a grudge, we’re guessing that the folks who’ve turned their backs on him in the last few days and months — all listed below — won’t be invited back any time soon. Now, this is going to be a season to remember!
