President Donald Trump headed out to dinner on Saturday, July 29, and his destination wasn’t a surprise for folks who know the places he likes to frequent. In the midst of scandalous accusations from a former White House employee about Trump Model Management allegedly being an organization that brought young Russian girls into the U.S. based on fake credentials that increased their age, news is breaking about President Trump having dinner at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
As seen in the below tweet from CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, President Trump was joined at dinner by Steve Mnuchin, the Secretary of the Treasury, and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. Another tweet below notes that Trump’s Saturday night visit to the Trump International Hotel counts as visit No. 57 to a Trump property since he became president.
An Instagram user posted a video of “lord Trump” waving to the hollering and applauding crowd. Also, Tara McKelvey, a White House reporter with the BBC News, posted the following photo of the crowd outside the Trump International Hotel. The latest photos on Twitter uploaded with the Trump International Hotel location also show no photos of President Trump inside the hotel from Saturday evening.
Tara also posted the below photo outside the Trump International Hotel, with the description that proclaims Trump has found his safe space at the hotel, even as reverberations about his speech to the Boy Scouts and his words to police officers, telling them they didn’t have to treat criminals so nice when arresting them, continue to buzz online, as seen in the below CNN video.
Tara also reported that rooms at the Trump International Hotel in D.C., start at $500 per night.
Reactions to President Trump making visit No. 57 to a Trump property are wide and varied on social media. Whereas some people don’t see a problem with President Trump visiting his own property, others are writing that the visits and attention to Trump properties are a conflict of interest as business profits mix with political matters.
As seen in the top photo above, President Donald Trump waved as he left the Trump International Hotel in the wake of having dinner there on Saturday, July 29, in Washington.
