Members say they can't convince their friends to go to Trump's prized resort, often driving them to his competitor.

According to Newsweek, Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club has seen better days as it experiences an exodus of Palm Beach elites, with an influx of far-right religious and political groups in their place.

“People will still put on their dancing shoes, and pay big money for their tickets, and go out for the night. [But] instead of going to Mar-a-Lago, they’ll be going to the Breakers,”Shannon Donnelly, the society editor for the Palm Beach Daily News, told the Washington Post.

The club has seen an uptick in reservations from far-right groups, however, with the likes of Pat Robertson and "The Trumpettes USA" scheduling future events.

Last week, the private club held a Young Republicans National Federation gala that included a speech from singer and Trump cheerleader Joy Villa, who celebrated conspiracy theorist and Sandy Hook-denier Alex Jones and an America-first ideology. “I’m watching Alex Jones nonstop!” she said in a video posted of the event. “We are populist. We are nationalist. We put America first and we’re not afraid!”

Mar-a-Lago officials have insisted business is doing fine.
