“You can always tell when the king is here,” Mr. Trump’s longtime butler, Anthony Senecal, said of the master of the house and Republican presidential candidate. Senecal, who is Trump's butler at the Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., a 118-room snowbird’s paradise that will become a winter White House if Trump is elected president. "Few people here can anticipate Mr. Trump’s demands and desires better than Mr. Senecal, 74, who has worked at the property for nearly 60 years, and for Mr. Trump for nearly 30 of them," New York Times writer Jason Horowitz writes.
