If you have a spare $100,000 and happen to be in Washington, D.C. tonight, swing by the Trump International Hotel where you and your money will be welcome. Meet the president, have your photo taken with Donald Trump, enjoy some rubber chicken. While many Trump properties are hurting financially, the D.C. hotel is doing well.
Tonight the RNC is holding a fundraiser at the Trump Hotel DC.

The fact that a sitting president can hold a fundraiser at a hotel he owns just shows how broken our political system has become. And tonight’s soiree is not the first time the Republican National Committee has handed large amounts of cash to the Trump hotels. In this election cycle alone, the Trump campaign has spent nearly a million dollars at Trump hotels and more than $110,000 at the D.C. property, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Apropos of Trump's fundraiser at the Trump Hotel tonight: This cycle, his campaign has spent nearly $1 million at Trump-owned entities, including more than $110,000 at the DC hotel. https://t.co/rgZsAZEFOs
