Trump's company earned $40M from Washington hotel in 2017, disclosure shows

Source: USA Today




Steve Reilly and Nick Penzenstadler, USA TODAY Published 5:50 p.m. ET May 16, 2018 | Updated 7:59 a.m. ET May 17, 2018

The president's income from his company's hotel in Washington, D.C. topped $40 million last year, according to a copy of his annual financial disclosure report released on Wednesday, making the property a clear winner among a portfolio which showed mixed results.

The Trump International Hotel, located less than one mile from the White House, has emerged a favorite of the Washington power players, including lobbyists and interest groups since its opening in October 2016.

President Trump earned $40.4 million from the hotel in the 2017 calendar year, according to the disclosure released Wednesday. Last year's financial disclosure report, which covered January 2016 to mid-April 2017 indicated President Trump earned $19.7 million from the hotel over that period.

The Washington hotel's revenue in 2017 included more than $350,000 in campaign funds, according to a USA TODAY analysis of campaign finance data. More than 60% of that came from events hosted by the Republican National Committee.

14. Probably a lot went to charity.

The Donald J Trump Charitable Foundation, perhaps. From which, 1% goes to actual charity, 99% to administration and fundraising.

He may have had to close down that charity. So he'll give bigly to the Donald J Trump Junior Charitable Foundation.

4. I read where he

supposedly donated 150k(?) of his profits to the treasury. I guess to 'keep a promise to return all profits to the treasury." He's WAY short.

12. I think he was....

going to "donate" his salary as "president" back to the Treasury. Is he actually living up to that pledge? I'd be floored if he is.

15. There's way more of us than them.

When they see mass demonstrations (peacible of course) the gop tends to come around some. They like money but they crave popularity as well.

8. No other president could get away with this.

I guess the emoluments provision of the U.S. Constitution is as dead as the rest of that once-sacred document, under trump.

When are we going to get angry enough about things to take some action?
