New York [USA], Feb. 19 (ANI): Even as many criticised him for holding the urgent discussion over North Korea's missile test with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the patio at Mar-a-Lago as other diners looked on freely, U. S. President Donald Trump continues to hold business at his Florida resort. According to Fox News, Trump travelled to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in South Florida, where he interviewed former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton and Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster for the post of National Security Advisor. Critics argued such actions are a national security risk, amid broader concerns on Capitol Hill and across the country about rival nations' access to top-secret government information. Also, this comes after Politico released a secretly recorded audiotape, from November at Trump's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, which seemed to capture the President telling cocktail and dinner guests to join him the next day, amid him interviewing potential Cabinet nominees.
