This isn't the first time the Trump family has had close calls with sinkholes, either:

In March 2017, a sinkhole formed in front of Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach estate belonging to President Trump. Last year, a sinkhole formed on the north White House lawn near the entrance to the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. It was excavated and repaired within a week.
