    PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Donald Trump doesn't like jetliners from Palm Beach International Airport flying over his prized Mar-a-Lago Club. A president Trump would have the power to divert them — but would he? Trump has tried for two decades through the Federal Aviation Administration and the courts to force departing airliners to turn before reaching the historic and exclusive 17-acre estate, which is 2.5 miles east of the airport's primary runway. An Associated Press analysis of airport data between late April and early May found the majority of planes flew directly over or near Mar-a-Lago, at an altitude of 500 to 2,000 feet when they pass Mar-a-Lago on both takeoff and landing.

    Ian Ogilvie: You’ve probably heard “sell in May and go away,” especially if you watch or read financial news. Maybe it’s caused you to think about selling your portfolio, or maybe it’s even prompted you to sell. If you did sell, that trade might have worked out well.
