>> US Presidents Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort already the site of a few stomach-churning diplomatic moments. And that's before you even get to the raw fish. 13 food violations were found by state inspectors at Trump's winter White House in January, just days before the state visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, according to the Miami Herald.
Among them, fish intended to be served raw or undercooked had not gone undergone proper parasite destruction. And two broken coolers stored meats at too high and potentially dangerous temperatures, with ham topping out at 57 degrees. The club, which charges $200,000 in initiation fees, was also cited for sinks with water too cold to sanitize hands and rusted shelves inside walk-in coolers.
Trump's most recent Mar-a-Lago state meal was with Chinese President Xi Jinping. While the resort's restaurant ultimately did meet inspectors' minimum standards, the Herald says its violations have been on the rise since Trump's election, with 11 last year and just 2 in 2015.
