Vanilla Ice asked Donald Trump to build his presidential library in a trailer park

The trailer park is located on the Florida coast

Vanilla Ice has reportedly tried to encourage President Donald Trump to part with tradition and build his presidential library in a small Florida trailer park.

In a long-established tradition since the Hoover administration, each US President has built a library in their home state – with Barack Obama recently revealing plans for an educational establishment in Chicago.

However, the cult rapper, real name Rob Van Winkle, has reportedly encouraged Trump to build his library in a small coastal Florida trailer park called Briny Breezes.

According to local real estate agent James Arena, the rapper is acting as his go-between – with Arena hoping to sell Briny Breezes to Trump for $1 billion (£770.6 million).

“Vanilla Ice ran it by Donald Jr,” Arena told The Palm Beach Post. “He called me back and said, ‘Man, I think they’re really into it.’”

While an unlikely proposition, residents of Briny Breezes are also conflicted about a potential library on the site.

“Trump is not my favourite and I would hate to see Briny disappear, but I’m a realist… That’s a lot of money,” said one resident.

Briny Breezes is also located in Palm Beach County, the same county as Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, which he and Melania Trump recently designated as their primary residence.

In other Trump news, Robert DeNiro recently doubled down on his criticism of the US President and claimed he would like to “see a bag of shit right in his face”.

“That would be the most humiliating thing because he needs to be humiliated,” said DeNiro.

“He needs to be confronted and humiliated by whoever his opponent is, his political opponent. They have to stand up to him. They don’t have to do it in an obvious physical way, but they have to have the formidability to confront him and to put him in his place because the people have to see that, to see him be humiliated.”
