President Trump says he’s received tens of millions of dollars in income from the golf courses and resorts whose profile he boosted during frequent visits since taking office, according to filings released Friday by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.

The 98 pages of financial disclosures offer a partial snapshot of Trump’s income and assets from January 2016 to April this year, as well as indications he’s reaped at least a partial windfall since his most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission last year. The filings offer less detailed information about his precise financial situation than would be obtained from his tax returns. Trump broke with modern precedents by refusing to release those returns on the campaign trail or during his presidency.

Properties that Trump frequently visited as president saw the largest boost in income. Trump claimed more than $37 million in income from Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach County resort in Florida he described as his “Winter White House,” as well as $20 million in income from the nearby golf club he owns in Jupiter, Florida. His claimed Mar-a-Lago income rose rapidly since his last two financial disclosures with the FEC: Trump reported more than $15 million in income from the resort in the 2015 report, followed by $29 million in the 2016 version.
hmmm, reportedly he and the first family have decided to go to Camp David this weekend instead of Mar-a-Lago.
Coincidence?

He should pay the tax payers back for the cost of those trips.
Do you think that Barack Obama should be footing the bill for his protection for all the globe trotting that he and Michelle are currently doing? Keeping a high profile is due in part to help book sales for their upcoming books that they have already received a $60 million advance for.

Somebody made a thread here a couple weeks ago about how people are ignoring his places of business because he is so disliked.

I guess that thread was a lie.

I think this is either being or going to be investigated right?
Although I believe that he will legitimately make more money through his businesses as President. This is new to us and we will have to sift through what's legitimate and what's not. His businesses becoming more profitable through name recognition and star power is legitimate. Profits through hosting world leaders and dignitaries at his resorts not so legitimate.
I have faith that they'll get it all sorted out.

Mar-a-lago is closed for the season. He did not go to his NJ golf club because it was causing the locals way to much to do security.

Bad optics the president causing a small town financial debt so he can play golf.

Remember Trump was at his NJ golf club last weekend.


the hardest working president ever.

200 Democrats in Congress are suing Trump on his still making money and not cutting all ties.
