On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump was seen entertaining guests at his Mar-a-Lago club without abiding by COVID-19 precautions.

Footage from a recent event at the resort shows the former president hugging people maskless. The event occurred after a coronavirus outbreak among “some staff” forced the club to partially close just days before.

In photos, Trump is wearing a suit and tie and is speaking to guests on a balcony at the resort, where membership costs up to $200,000 a year.

Trump has been living at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach since leaving the White House in January.

Parties caused the outbreak at the resort held by several groups where people did not wear masks or practice social distancing, including the former president himself.

A 500-person fundraiser for the charity Place of Hope is scheduled to occur at the resort on Sunday.
