Trump Transition Team Moves to Bedminster
BEDMINSTER — The Trump transition team is on the move to New Jersey.
The Washington Times reported the president-elect will be at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster through the weekend, starting Friday. Trump's home at Trump Tower has served as headquarters for the transition since his election last week, with concrete barriers placed around the building on Fifth Avenue and traffic restrictions put in place on Fifth Avenue.
The report did not indicate who will be coming to the 600-acre club on Lamington Road near Routes 78 and 287. NPR reported Trump will start the day with meetings in Manhattan and head to the Somerset County club in the afternoon.
The club offers more privacy than Trump Tower, where C-SPAN ran a live video stream from the lobby to show visitors to the 68-story building.
Trump has owned the course, which is the former home of car maker John DeLorean, since 2002 according to the New York Times. Trump's daughter, Ivanka, married Jared Kushner at the Club in 2009. The course is ranked at No. 83 by Golf Magazine and is scheduled to host the 2017 U.S. Women's Open and the 2022 PGA Championship.
