Trump’s Margo Lago Revenue Has More Than Doubled Since 2015
I love @HilaryWarnedUs’s tweets on Twitter-especially her hashtag. Hilary warned us about much that has come to pass.
One of the many things was ‘When he wins you lose.’
While Herr Trump still won’t show us his tax returns-the new excuse is he’s filing an extension; my assumption is it shows how in the hoc he is to Russian banks and mobsters-we now have a financial statement:
“Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, where he spent most of his weekends immediately after his inauguration, returned millions more in income after his campaign and subsequent election. Trump reported about $16 million in profits for Mar-a-Lago in his report filed in 2015, about $30 million in his report filed in 2016, and about $37 million in his most recent report.”
“Trump didn’t hide the fact that his presidency made Mar-a-Lago a more profitable venture for him. The initiation fee for the so-called “Winter White House” doubled to $200,000 — a figure that doesn’t include taxes and $14,000 annual dues — immediately after Trump was inaugurated.”
To be sure, Trump himself said back in 1999, that if he were ever POTUS, he’d be the first to make money on the deal. Make money at our expense.
He’s conducted pubic business with business leaders, foreign leaders, etc at Margo Lago and Trump Tower-at Trump Tower Jared Kushner talked about engaging in treason by conducting government business in the Russian embassy.
All of this puts money in his pocket.
“As the Atlantic details, the other Trump properties that did not receive frequent visits from the president did not see a sharp jump in revenue. Trump-branded golf courses throughout the United States generated roughly the same amount of income for Trump this year as they did in 2016.”
Not a surprise:
“According to the filings, the Trump International Hotel — the downtown D.C. property Trump leases from the federal government that’s located just blocks from the White House — has also generated nearly $20 million in profits for the president this year.”
“Previous reporting has revealed some of those profits come from foreign government officials who opt to stay there when they’re in the nation’s capital. Earlier this month, the attorneys general of Maryland and D.C. filed suit against the president, arguing it violates the U.S. Constitution for Trump to profit off foreign governments through this hotel.”
He’s violating the Constitution not every day, or even every hour, but constantly.
In other news, the Dems are fighting back against Mitch McConnell’s fiendish, evil plan to pass TrumpCare totally in secret:
“Senate Republicans have been conducting negotiations over their version of the American Health Care Act in secret, and now Senate Democrats have a tentative plan to fight back.”
Teddy Davis of CNN says on Twitter: “Senate Dems are weighing whether to bring the chamber’s business to a halt next week in an effort to pry open deliberations on health care.”

P.S. So the Gravis poll against Peter King NY2 and it has good news-almost too good to believe.
In my March poll I trailed King by 11 and thought that was very good news. Now Gravis has me up by 10? Still, the moment of truth is next week when Gravis writes up the press release.
I can use any help I can get at this point-volunteers or supporters who live in NY 2. Donations whatever your zip code. These days we can’t just support a local Dem we need a Dem Congress. Which is why I’ve donated few hundred to Jon Ossoff.
Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House-$5 or $10 can do so much.
If you feel that you can’t I, of course, understand-who is rich these days? But please do me one favor: ask yourself privately, mentally, if you really can’t spare $5 dollars. If you can honestly say you can’t, no worries.
We can have a Dem Congress, we must have a Dem Cogress, and we will.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
