While Trump's private club in South Florida has been transformed into a fortress of armed guards, military-grade radar, bomb sniffing dogs and metal-detection checkpoints, there are still notable vulnerabilities, namely the stream of guests who can enter the property without a background check. ... "No one ever ran a residence that served as a hotel," said presidential historian Douglas Brinkley. "It's a security nightmare by having such a turnstile of folks coming and going."
