Trump Plans To Stuff His Pockets During GOP Event At His DC Hotel By Tripling The Price Of Rooms
A new report by Law and Crime revealed on Monday that Donald Trump’s International Hotel in Washington, D.C. plans to skyrocket the room rates on November 7, when a Republican Party retreat is scheduled to take place there.
According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the hotel will be charging $1,345 for a “premier” room and $1,395 for a “deluxe” room — the two cheapest kinds of rooms at the hotel. That is roughly a 200 percent increase from their average price.
“Filling the hotel with a who’s who of Republican power players serves as an invitation for anyone looking to influence the government, and the hotel’s role as a hot spot for influence peddling has helped to make it one of the few bright spots in Trump’s financial portfolio,” CREW’s Linnaea Honl-Stuenkel writes. “Since Trump never divested from his businesses when he became president, he stands to profit from the decision to host the Republican retreat at his hotel, and even more massively because of the spike in rates that evening.”
According to the report, the event, known as the “Save the Senate” retreat, will feature eight current GOP senators and Trump himself.
