Inspectors from the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation cited at least 13 violations in reports from a January 26 inspection at Trump's "winter White House" in Palm Beach, the Miami Herald first reported.

Three of the violations were classed as "high priority" meaning they "could contribute directly to a foodborne illness". The club did, however, meet the minimum standards to remain in operation. Kitchen staffers were ordered to cook the fish immediately or throw it out. In coolers, foods like shrimp and burgers were found at temperatures up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, much warmer than the required 41 degrees.

Trump, of course, doesn't run Mar-a-Lago himself; he technically can't, pursuant to agreements he made to keep his businesses at arm's length or further while he serves as President.

Inspectors told kitchen staff to empty broken coolers and not use again until they're fixed.

Restaurant inspectors recently found several health code violations in the kitchen at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, including undercooked meat and subpar hand-washing practices among employees. Trump entertained the Chinese premier, Xi Jinping, there last weekend, and will be spending the upcoming Easter break on his seventh visit "home" since his inauguration 11 weeks ago.

The number of violations was bigly for the property, but it's not an uncommon number for a restaurant undergoing routine inspection, according to Stephen Lawson, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. "The infractions were corrected on site, and the establishment was immediately brought into compliance".

While Trump was running in the 2016 US election last year, 11 health violations were found at the kitchen, compared to two the year before.

The newspaper reports that inspectors a year ago found 11 violations, and two were discovered in 2015.

One of the high-priority violations was butter by the griddle being held at 77 degrees.
