A billionaire with close ties to Putin, named Roman Abramovich, is drawing suspicion after parking his yacht just eight miles from Mar-a-Lago. Trump is due to be in Mar-a-Lago soon for Thanksgiving.
The yacht itself is hard to miss. The 533-foot yacht comes with a submarine, helipad, pool, and equipped for a crew of 92 people. It’s said to be worth about half a billion dollars.
In the past, Jared Kushner reportedly met with Abramovich at least once and their wives met on multiple occasions.
“There’s no oligarch among those still accepted in the West who’s closer and more trusted by Putin than Abramovich,” Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a former oil magnate, told Bloomberg.
There’s no word on whether Abramovich will meet with Trump, as he does not keep a public schedule. Due to space limitations, the yacht is scheduled to leave on December 1st, after Trump spends the Thanksgiving holiday in Mar-a-Lago. There is a possibility that Abramovich will move to a space that’s just a mile away from Mar-a-Lago.

Trump officials remain under intense scrutiny because of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Due to that scrutiny, this yacht appearance does not look good for the US president.
