There’s a buzz amongst the forces opposed to Donald Trump that a billionaire oligarch Vladimir Putin-hanger on spent some time at Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago earlier this month.
Farkhad Akhmedov, an Azerbaijan-born, former Russian senator and oil and gas billionaire, posted a picture of what is believed to be himself and his son to Facebook on March 6 at and tagged it Mar-a-Lago.
Flight records that track the billionaire’s private jet show that he flew into Miami on March 2 and stuck around until March 8, which coincided with Trump’s visit. The president was at Mar-a-Lago from March 3 through March 5.
It’s clear from Akhmedov’s post he and the boy are on a boat, and Akhmedov owns the second largest yacht in the world, one much too big to ride up the Intracoastal.
In fact, Akhmedov’s 377-foot superyacht Luna is sitting docked across from AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, and has been for at least a month according to maritime records.
The Facebook post, which has been deleted along with Akhmedov’s entire Facebook account, has many wondering, why, considering the intense scrutiny Trump’s dealings with Russia are under, is Akhmedov tagging himself at Mar-A-Lago?
And why would he then delete not only the post, but his entire public profile that more than 10,000 people like and follow?
