Trump to host Trump re-election fundraiser at Trump hotel

Kathleen Clark, a former ethics lawyer for the District of Columbia, said that while not illegal or even unusual for Trump, it’s a bold example of self-dealing that deeply concerns some Americans.

“It’s another example of him trying to get a twofer, promoting his brand through his campaign or his government work,” she said.

Norman Eisen, who served as President Barack Obama’s lead ethics attorney, said Trump is “becoming more and more brazen in his efforts to monetize the presidency.”
