PALM BEACH, Fla. — Palm Beach police say they're "planning accordingly" after protesters breached the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to contest the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden as America's new commander-in-chief.
President Donald Trump changed his official residency to his Mar-a-Lago club on Palm Beach last year, and has been a frequent visitor to the property during his presidency.
Given Wednesday's unrest in Washington, a Palm Beach Police Department spokesperson sent this statement to WPTV about extra security measures that are being taken around Mar-a-Lago:
"The chief is planning accordingly. And as you know we do not discuss tactics or asset deployment."
As of Wednesday evening, there were no demonstrators in the area around Mar-a-Lago.
