The arrival of Donald Trump at the White House is a bad move for his private affairs, at least outside the federal capital. According to a Washington Post survey, more and more organizations are canceling their stays in the President’s properties so as not to be associated with his policy. Only its hotels in Washington show a spectacular increase in attendance. In other American states, the numbers plunge.
Called ” the White House of the South ” by Donald Trump, the sumptuous property of Mar-a-Lago in Florida is most affected by the withdrawals. Its turnover plunged by 50%.
Nearly 20 charitable organizations canceled their stay at the end of August, after the polemic statements of the president. Donald Trump had estimated that there were “good people “ among white supremacists and neo-Nazis who had demonstrated in Charlottesville.
Mar-a-Lago is not the only one affected. According to the Washington Post, nearly half of the 200 diverse groups that held their gala every year at one of the president’s offices changed their service provider.
Suspicions of corruption
The very democrat California is one of the states most affected by this disaffection. For example, the Donald Trump golf course has a $ 50,000 loss as a result of the departure of ten of its biggest customers.
But in Washington, the president’s affairs are flourishing. Foreign government officials and lobbyists frequent attendance at Hotel Trump, hoping to win the favor of the White House.
Federal public servants also practice in Trump institutions. One association called for an investigation into corruption. She got copies of bills paid in Trump hotels with government credit cards.
