As Donald Trump Jr. slams the false reports, Zillow has removed the fake listing, which originally reported that the Trump residence sold for $422,000,000.
Reports claiming that former President Donald Trump transferred ownership of his Mar-a-Lago estate to his son, Donald Trump Jr., before his arrest in Georgia are false, as clarified by Newsweek. An incorrect Zillow listing initially indicated the property was off the market, but Zillow later corrected this. The property was not sold for $422 million as previously reported and remains under Trump’s ownership. The Trump Organization and Eric Trump also confirmed the inaccuracy and dismissed the rumor.
Shortly before Trump’s arrest on 13 felony counts in Georgia, a report suggested he might have transferred ownership to Mar-a-Lago Inc. rather than selling it. The company Mar-a-Lago Inc., listed as owned by Donald Trump Jr., has a Tallahassee mailing address. However, both Trump Jr. and his father denied this claim.
Trump Jr. expressed frustration with media reports in a statement to Breitbart, asserting that the news about the property transfer was “total and complete fake news.” He criticized media outlets for not retracting the story and accused them of lacking shame.
After being relatively absent from the media, including skipping the first GOP primary debate, Donald Trump posted his Fulton County jail mugshot on X (formerly Twitter), marking his return to the platform after his last tweet in January 2021, which announced his absence from President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
