Trump said on Thursday that he would be willing to move the Trump International Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, from New Jersey to New York if he could get a building deal done.
“I’d like to see a hotel, a real estate deal,” he said at a press conference.
“You can do that.
We can get a real deal done.”
Trump, whose business empire is estimated at $2.5 billion, has not made any public comments about the proposal since he launched his campaign for president in June.
However, a New York Times report said he had expressed interest in the building, but that his plans had been “scuttled” after local officials and the city’s attorney general said the proposal did not meet the city building code.
The president has repeatedly said that he intends to build a Trump golf course in Bedow, New York, but it was not clear what his plans would be for the site, where Trump also owns the course.
