Florida man still pitching trailer park as site of future Trump presidential library

A Florida man says he is ready to turn a trailer park into the location of the Trump presidential library.

James Arena, who suggested last year that Briny Breezes, Fla., become Trump Town USA — and then received death threats — said he still thinks the 46-acre waterfront tract would be the perfect setting for the library and a hotel that could host international summits.

Briny Breezes is made up entirely of a trailer park and sits between the Atlantic Ocean and Intercoastal Waterway just north of Delray Beach and in what is now President Trump’s home county of Palm Beach.

“This is the most prestigious piece of real estate available in the United States of America,” said Arena, 38, who was raised in Briny Breezes. “You will never ever, ever find a better piece of property.”

Arena, who is a real estate broker, stressed that he is not officially representing Briny Breezes, where he still lives. He pegged the potential sale price at $1 billion and said 60% of the trailers’ owners would have to agree to sell.

Meanwhile, New York City Councilman Joe Borelli has his own ideas on where the library should go — on Staten Island.

The Republican, who represents Staten Island, pitched the proposal last year, writing the president about building his library there.

His office did not return requests for comment on whether he was still pushing the plan.

But with President Trump refusing to concede the election, no formal plans for a library after he leaves office have been announced.
