F-15s Cause Sonic Boom Over Palm Beach In Scramble To Intercept Unresponsive Aircraft

New Yorkers, and certainly their mayor Bill de Blasio, complained bitterly about the traffic chaos unleashed by then president-elect Donald Trump when he used his Fifth Avenue-located Trump Tower as campaign headquarters, resulting in logistical and security chaos. Now it’s the turn of Palm Beach, where Trump resides on most weekends in his Mar-A-Lago “Winter White House” (at a cost to taxpayers of approximately $3 million per trip).
