From the beginning Americans and politicians alike have voiced their concern on conflict of interests as Donald Trump claimed the White House. However, Trump once again deceived his voters into believing he’d never abuse his power as president.
We’re almost 100 days into his presidency, and that couldn’t be further from the truth.
From Truth Examiner:
The blog post, posted on April 5, details the history of the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and notes that the founder willed the estate to the U.S. government in 1973. Founder Marjorie Merriweather Post “spared no expense” when constructing the resort in 1927, it continues, and she intended it to be used by U.S. presidents to “entertain visiting foreign dignitaries.”
It also says President Trump is “belatedly fulfilling the dream of Mar-a-Lago’s original owner and designer” by using the resort to host foreign leaders like China’s Xi Jinping.
The history was originally posted on ShareAmerica, described as State’s “platform for sharing compelling stories and images that spark discussion and debate on important topics like democracy, freedom of expression, innovation, entrepreneurship, education, and the role of civil society.”
Mar-a-Lago initiation fee has doubled to $200,000 following Trump’s election.
Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden tweeted at the State Department on Monday, asking, “Why are taxpayer $$ promoting the President’s private country club?”
Sen. Ron Wyden responded to Trump’s abuse of power via Twitter.
