Members and guests of President Donald Trump's Mara-a-Lago Club saw security tightened to the max on Thursday, with one reporter being threatened with the confiscation of her cell phone.

The Palm Beach Daily News reports Trump's Winter White House was subject to "twice as much security" because of U.S. airstrikes in Syria and a visit to the Palm Beach property by President Xi Jinping of China.

"The club was almost entirely shut down except for a handful of tables on the terrace and an early-wrap veterans benefit downstairs," Daily News journalist Shannon Donnelly said in an article published Friday.

And when Donnelly tried to text her editor about the scene, she says a security officer approached and warned, "If I see that phone in your hand again, I'm taking it away from you."

The same security officer then walked up to a table where Boston Celtics legend John Havlicek was blowing out sparklers on his birthday cake.

"As one of his guests filmed it on a cellphone [it] was promptly snatched from his hand by the burly security guy," Donnelly said.
