Trump National Doral Miami has furloughed 560 employees, while Mr Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach has furloughed 153 employees, according to the organisation.
The furloughs at those properties are of non-essential employees, including 31 cooks, 155 servers, and 49 housekeepers across the two properties, the organisation said.
A spokesman for the Trump Organization did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.
