We Found $16.1 Million in Political and Taxpayer Spending at Trump Properties


This is how much we know so far that taxpayers, political committees and the president’s own campaigns have paid to use Trump resorts, golf courses, hotels and aircraft since he announced his candidacy in 2015. Here’s all of that money, separated into little boxes. Each box represents a single expenditure. The bigger the box, the more money was spent. The orange boxes represent money paid to Donald Trump’s properties by the Trump presidential campaign. Like this one from November 23, 2016. The teal boxes are other political committees, like the Republican National Committee. Like this one: July 19, 2017. And the dark gray boxes represent the money paid to the president’s private businesses by government agencies, a.k.a. you, the taxpayer. Like this one: May 31, 2017. Let’s look at just one month of spending. Here’s where the President’s re-election committee spent money that ended up coming back into Donald Trump’s bank account. Various other political committees paid the president a relatively small amount of money, all at the Trump Hotel in D.C. And taxpayers paid the president’s businesses a lot of money in April 2017, too. The Department of Defense spent more than $47,000 at these properties. While the Department of Commerce paid just under $3,000.

  1. We knew this would happen when he ran. It's common practice. Only difference is instead of using friends as proxies he's doing it openly.

  2. Yes, and Trump & Co. wants more money in the Dept. of Defense, probably to pay for all the overcharging at his properties.

  3. To ProPublica , youtube.com/watch?v=oyg4X8ks-kY , may ProPublica share George Gehlbach's YouTube Channel on some or all of your social media networks ? Are Larry Nasser , Rod Rosenstein & Chuck Rosenberg related to Monica & George Kinney ? Didn't Monica & George Kinney steal me when I was 15 years old ? Did Rosenstein & Rosenberg watch Nasser rape those Gym Girls via a Samsung TV or other electronic devices ? Are Trump , Muller , Axelrod , Rosenberg & Rosenstein watching Sadistic Pedophile Detention Center Employees going sadistic , sexually abusing the Children who were taken from their Parents @ the Border ? Please read & share plus.google.com/115332435694776395437 & determine if I may be evidence & a Material Witness who may be able to remove the sadistic Pedophile Leaders in an appropriate & legal way ? Thank You , George .

  4. This is obviously going to happen when you have a politician that's been doing enormous amounts of business across the US. None of this has been illegal, so stop with the fake anti-Trump outrage.

  5. A clear and obvious violation of the the emollients clause! Who needs a salary when you can just vacuum up the money through pay to play schemes!
