Trump Hotel seems to get sweet deal from massive inauguration fund

Ivanka was involved in negotiating how much Trump's D.C. hotel charged for venue rentals đŸ·

"Ivanka Trump connected Rick Gates, who acted as the deputy to the chairman of President Trump's inaugural committee, to the manager of the hotel, who suggested a price of $175,000 per day for hiring the hotel's presidential ballroom.

"One member of the inauguration committee—Stephanie Winston Wolkoff—emailed Ivanka and fellow members to express her concern that the hotel was overcharging, stating that she believed the maximum rate should be $85,000 a day.


"On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump inaugural committee was under investigation by the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan for possible financial abuses in relation to the nearly $100 million raised for the inauguration.

"As part of the probe, investigators are looking into whether the committee accepted donations from individuals seeking influence in the Trump administration, in violation of federal law, and also looking into whether money was misspent."
