    President Trump Using Trump Hotel to Hold Trump Re-Election Fundraiser

    http://fortune.com/2017/06/22/donald...on-fundraiser/

    He said he had too much money he didn't need any from anybody else. And he will probably personally profit from the affair- charging the committee for renting the hotel space and for catering. The hotel is inside a taxpayer owned building.

    President. Candidate. Businessman. Three of President Donald Trump's roles converge next week as he holds his first re-election fundraiser at his hotel in Washington.

    Trump can see the Trump International Hotel from the White House lawn, making it a premier and convenient location for the June 28 major-donor event, his campaign director Michael Glassner said.

    But the choice also raises ethics questions, according to conflict of interest attorneys who have been critical of Trump's decision not to cut financial ties with his global business empire.

    Kathleen Clark, a former ethics lawyer for the District of Columbia, said that while not illegal or even unusual for Trump, it's a bold example of self-dealing that deeply concerns some Americans.

    "It's another example of him trying to get a twofer, promoting his brand through his campaign or his government work," she said.

    Norman Eisen, who served as President Barack Obama's lead ethics attorney, said Trump is "becoming more and more brazen in his efforts to monetize the presidency."

    You neglected to post the rest of your article or even say if there is more text. It actually looks more like a fund raiser for the party, which is actually quite common (first sentence below indicates that).

    Part of the article says:


    He officially kicked off his 2020 bid on Inauguration Day by filing Federal Election Commission paperwork, making it the earliest such effort by a sitting president.

    It's paying off: The campaign raised more than $7 million by the end of March from appeals to small donors and the sale of merchandise such as the ubiquitous red "Make America Great Again" ball caps.

    The money helps pay for political rallies. He's held five of them since becoming president, including one Wednesday night in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

    The fundraiser next week is aimed at high-dollar donors. His campaign and the Republican National Committee will share proceeds.

    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul
