Former President Donald Trump’s Bedminster National Golf Club was the epicenter of Friday’s New Jersey 4.8 magnitude earthquake that shook the tristate area.

The largest earthquake since 1884 hit the New York tri-state area, causing buildings to shake. The earthquake started at 10:23 am and originated near Trump’s New Jersey golf course.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) stated that the earthquake struck the state on Friday morning close to Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, less than seven miles from Trump’s golf club.

It is not known if the property sustained any significant damage from the earthquake.

The earthquake was felt by over 42 million Americans from Philadelphia to New York. Some people even felt the tremors in Maryland and Massachusetts, according to Newsweek.

Per the USGS:

While this earthquake is relatively small globally, earthquakes of this magnitude are commonly widely felt in the eastern United States because of efficient seismic wave propagation in the region. Earthquakes in the eastern US are infrequent but not unexpected. Since 1950, 40 other earthquakes of magnitude 3 and larger have occurred within 250 km of today’s earthquake. In that time range, the April 5, 2024, earthquake is the largest.
