Trofire – According to a report from CNBC, Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago raised membership fees from $100,000 to $200,000.
I’m sure that has nothing to do with the fact that he intends to use Mar-A-Lago as an occasional retreat from the White House. Oh, wait.
Either way, a membership at Mar-a-Lago now includes a chance to mingle with the 45th president. Trump plans to use the resort as his occasional “Winter White House.” He has visited twice since his election – first for Thanksgiving and then over Christmas and New Year holidays.
It would be instructive to know who will pay those higher fees. Will his foreign partners and friends be paying more for some access to the president?
Tell me more about how Trump isn’t benefitting financially from his office? But wait! There’s more. Bloomberg reports that the Trump Organization has changed their plans to build hotels around the world and instead plans more in the United States.
