President Trump Using Trump Hotel to Hold Trump Re-Election Fundraiser

His first re-election campaign fundraiser.... The election is 3-1/2 years off, and DJT can't stop campaigning.

Well, he must not have much to do, as president, so he's doing what he does best: Campaign.
President Trump Using Trump Hotel to Hold Trump Re-Election Fundraiser

President. Candidate. Businessman. Three of President Donald Trump's roles converge next week as he holds his first re-election fundraiser at his hotel in Washington.

Trump can see the Trump International Hotel from the White House lawn, making it a premier and convenient location for the June 28 major-donor event, his campaign director Michael Glassner said.

But the choice also raises ethics questions, according to conflict of interest attorneys who have been critical of Trump's decision not to cut financial ties with his global business empire.

Kathleen Clark, a former ethics lawyer for the District of Columbia, said that while not illegal or even unusual for Trump, it's a bold example of self-dealing that deeply concerns some Americans.

"It's another example of him trying to get a twofer, promoting his brand through his campaign or his government work," she said.

...Trump has commingled business and politics right from the June 2015 day he glided down an escalator at Trump Tower in New York City to announce his candidacy.

Ethics experts say his continued appearances at his own for-profit properties—he's visited such locations 37 times as president, according to an Associated Press tally—double as a form of advertising that inappropriately enriches him....

that takes some powerful thinking and working

That's draining the swamp alright. This was the fool who lied in the last election when he kept saying that he was going to self-fund his campaign. This guy has zero credibility and is self dealing.

Trump must be trying to emulate George Washington regarding Washington's real estate holdings in his letter to Britain government agent Authur Young on December 12, 1793.

What is shocking is how many Americans are clueless about this matter and regurgitate nonsense they read somewhere, most likely from some equally unknowledgeable source.

It's a bad habit of yours.

Good luck breaking it.

Seems Democratic donation are way down. Which is probably why we're hearing Democrats suggesting Pelosi step down.

No immigrant should be allowed in without a means of self support. We are not the welfare department. No illegal alien should be allowed to use any social service, hold a job, etc., etc.
