President Donald Trump seems determined to use the Presidency to turn a profit while in office.
Just weeks after national outcry forced him to withdraw his efforts to hold the massive 2020 G7 Summit of world leaders at his own Trump Doral Resort in Miami, Trump will soon address the Republican National Committee there for its winter meeting.
And the prices just went up.
Right before the White House announced Trump's visit, the cost for Doral's cheapest rooms leapt from $254 to $539 per night. Given the amount of lawmakers and other staff expected to attend, the brunt of the costs will likely go to taxpayers.
The inflation of the room prices come in addition to already expensive food. After all, the featured motto on the Trump Doral restaurants webpage is:
"SUBTLETY IS NOT OUR STRENGTH, INDULGENCE IS."
They're not lying either—one of the Doral restaurants, BLT Prime, boasts a $106 porterhouse steak.
People weren't even surprised anymore at how blatantly the President has used taxpayer money for personal enrichment.
If conditions at Doral are the same as an undercover reporter exposed two months ago, there will likely be some disgruntled Republicans.
Oh, by the way, we still haven't seen the President's tax returns.
