Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey sits on a 36-hole course, with a pool, dining area, and several cottages and suites. Membership can reportedly cost about $300,000. It’s where President Trump’s daughter Ivanka married Jared Kushner in 2009, and where Trump once said he wants to be buried.

He spent three days there as president-elect, interviewing potential Cabinet members. And with his Mar-A-Lago club in Florida preparing to close for the season, it could become his “summer White House.”

It could be pricey for a government with just 16 police officers. Added security around Mar-A-Lago during President Trump’s visits has reportedly cost surrounding governments more than $3.5 million, reports CBS News’ Don Dahler. Bedminster Mayor Steven Parker predicts his township alone could have to pay $300,000 to support the president’s travel this summer.
