Trump made millions last year: financial disclosure

The New York Post reports:
President Trump hauled in tens of millions in revenue from his international resorts, golf clubs and hundreds of other businesses, according to a financial disclosure form released by the Office of Government Ethics.

The 98-page document – made public late Friday afternoon – included $19.7 million in income from the president’s luxury hotel in downtown Washington, which opened in September 2016 and became the subject of controversy after people looking to curry favor with the administration began staying there or booking the facility for events.

Trump also reported more than $37.2 million in “resort related revenue” from his Mar-a-Lago club in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he has hosted several foreign dignitaries since taking office. That figure represents a $7.4 million increase in revenue since Trump’s last financial disclosure in May, while the president saw an $800,000 dip in revenue revenue from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. during the same period.
It appears President Trump pays a lot more in taxes than Comrade Sanders.
