President Trump’s personal businesses have charged his reelection campaign $1.3 million for food, rent and other services since he took office, Forbes reports.
“In December, Forbes reported on the first $1.1 million that President Trump moved from his campaign into his business. Since then, his campaign filed additional documentation showing that it spent another $180,000 at Trump-owned properties in the final three months of 2018… The campaign has paid $54,000 to Trump Plaza LLC, which controls a property that includes two brownstone apartment buildings in New York City. The reason for those payments, which are listed as ‘rent,’ remains unclear… A person working behind the front desk couldn’t make sense of it.”
“Six residents also said they had never seen any indication of the campaign in the buildings. A 2016 campaign staffer, however, said people sometimes crashed at an apartment there when they were in town.”Save to Favorites
