Trump Organization Benefiting from Secret Service Stays at Lavish Trump Properties

Feb 10, 2020

The Washington Post has revealed President Trump’s businesses have been charging the Secret Service up to $650 per night for hotel rooms at his luxury properties, despite past claims that the Trump Organization does not profit from government employees staying at its properties.

Meanwhile, a federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit Friday that accused Donald Trump of violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution through his businesses. The lawsuit alleges foreign governments and other entities patronize the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in order to curry favor with the president, putting other businesses at a disadvantage.
