The town of Palm Beach, Fla. reported the sinkhole on its website. The 4-foot-by-4-foot sinkhole formed on Southern Boulevard directly in front of Mar-a-Lago. The town says utility crews will likely do exploratory excavation on Monday to determine the cause of the sinkhole, which opened near a newly installed water main.
Trump has spent numerous weekends at the resort since taking office, hosting world leaders such as China’s Xi Jinping and Japan’s Shinzo Abe and playing several rounds of golf there.
Twitter users quickly mocked the news of the sinkhole.

But it is a beautiful sinkhole. The best sink hole in history. A model sinkhole for all future sinkholes.
