A Disturbing Trend Has Emerged At Trump’s Hotels. National Security May Be At Risk

Published

In the past few months, several charities have decided to quit Trump properties and hold their events somewhere else. The reason? They don’t approve President Donald Trump’s immoral actions and offensive rhetoric.

As reported by Political Dig, 29 major charities canceled upcoming events at Trump’s properties — a major blow to that club’s business — after the president said there were “fine people” among white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and members of the alt-right protesting to preserve a Confederate statue in Charlottesville.

Dozens of other clients have left since Trump entered the 2016 presidential race, The Washington Post reports.

Yes, as President Trump’s actions and rhetoric grow more polarizing, his business empire is losing lucrative event business. But that does not mean Trump is not making money. In fact, he is making millions through a troublesome shift that is reshaping his business.

As charities continue canceling having their event at Trump’s properties, at Trump’s D.C. hotel, there has also been a slew of events involving groups that have come to Washington to influence policy decisions. those groups include foreign governments.

Just last week, the hotel hosted the prime minister of Malaysia, who is the subject of a Justice Department corruption probe, as well as the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry, which wants more offshore drilling. The hotel was also scheduled to host an association of candy-makers, who want federal help in a long-running feud with the sugar industry.

In July, a trade group representing e-cigarette makers and vape shop owners brought about 150 people to the hotel. They paid $285 per guest room. They also paid to rent a ballroom, and reserve the hotel’s Lincoln Library, though the vapers wouldn’t say how much they cost.

Ten days after the group checked out, it scored a victory.

An Obama-era regulation requiring stricter government oversight of e-cigarette products was put on hold by the Food and Drug Administration.

Rentals from groups such as these helped Trump’s D.C. hotel surpass its own revenue expectations.

Through the first four months of the year, the hotel turned a profit of $1.97 million, according to documents reported by The Washington Post.

In Florida, Steven M. Alembik, an Israel lobbyist, is planning a $600-per-seat gala at the Mar-a-Lago Club.

His logic: Trump helped Israel. So Alembik will help Trump in return.

“He’s got Israel’s back,” Alembik said. “We’ve got his back.’”

This brings an important question: Would Trump let a foreign government dictate US policy in exchange for business at his properties?

‘I can’t In Good Countenance Continue To Show This’: Fox News Cut Away From Trump’s Press Sec. For Pushing Baseless Claims Of Election Fraud

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Monday cut away from a press briefing featuring Kayleigh McEnany, who is both the White House press secretary and a Trump campaign spokesperson, as she continued to push Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud.

“She’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” Cavuto said as he cut off the press conference, pushing back on what he described as “explosive” charges from McEnany.

“Not so fast,” Cavuto added.

McEnany suggested, without evidence, that Democrats welcomed “fraud” and “illegal voting” in the 2020 election.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” McEnany said, echoing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that votes for President-elect Joe Biden were illegal.

Though multiple major news outlets, including Fox News, have declared Biden the projected winner of the 2020 election, Trump has refused to concede and is rejecting the results, claiming that he won the election.

Meanwhile, a number of world leaders have congratulated Biden on his victory, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Even before the end of voting on November 3, the president repeatedly signaled he would claim the election was “rigged” against him if he lost, but there is no evidence to substantiate such claims.
