Trump Used Campaign Donors To Pay For His Son’s Girlfriend’s ‘Lavish’ Party At Mar-A-Lago: Report
Former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is now in a relationship with Donald Trump Jr., was able to have a lavish birthday party at Mar-a-Lago at the expense of multiple Trump campaign donors.
According to the New York Times, Trump friends and family, along with White House staff were on hand to wish Guilfoyle a happy 51st birthday, and the big event even had campaign sponsors.
“But when it came to picking up the tab, hands went out to other attendees,” the report revealed. “Among them were at least four whose families are financial supporters of the president’s re-election campaign, for which Ms. Guilfoyle helps lead the fund-raising. They ended up pitching in tens of thousands of dollars, passed along to Mar-a-Lago, to help pay for what two people familiar with the planning said was a $50,000 celebration.”
According to the Times, the bill for the party has not shown up on a campaign finance report yet.
It’s something that has become consistent in the Trump world, the Times explained. “His reliance on other people’s money rather than his own fortune, and the overlap between the president’s private and public roles.”
The report cited Campaign Legal Center official Brendan Fischer, who explained it’s another example of the “illustration of the blurred lines between Trump’s presidency, his campaign, and his family’s personal and financial interests.”
“This may not be illegal, but it is incredibly unethical,” Fischer said.
