1. Government Fame for Private Gain
Trump is above all, a business man–though many are beginning to even question his success there as well. However, his Mar-a-Lago resort, the same one that he has spent millions of tax dollars traveling back and forth to is now used to conduct presidential business. And where do the funds go from those meetings? Right into Trump’s pockets since it’s ultimately his resort. Along with doubling the resort annual membership fee since election day, Trump has hosted almost every meeting with a foreign dignitary as a way to show-off his for-profit business. And on top of that, the State Department’s website even now advertises the resort on one of its official webpages. Classy.
