Trump to visit his hotel to meet with donors and supporters Thursday

President Trump is expected to visit the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Thursday to meet with donors and supporters, according to officials involved in planning the visit. The trip will occur midday, hours before his speech on the South Lawn of the White House.

The hotel has been a hub of activity all week for top donors and Trump supporters, with panels and private events ahead of the convention speech. Some Trump family members, officials and allies have spent time in a private suite there before and after their speeches. Thursday’s event is arranged by Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, the officials said.

At least 15 events for donors are scheduled for the hotel, including a panel on “Defeating the Deep State” with former acting U.S. attorney general Matt Whitaker; Pam Bondi, the former Florida attorney general who spoke at the convention Tuesday; and Sebastian Gorka, a former Trump adviser. There’s also a bourbon tasting with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who also spoke Tuesday, and a political update with campaign manager Bill Stepien and deputy campaign manager Justin Clark.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro is giving donors an “Art of the Deal” reception, and VIP guests are also treated to a conference call with Vice President Pence. Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie and Katrina Pierson are hosting a panel on “The Real Joe Biden,” and former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and others are speaking about Trump as “Law and Order President.”

Other administration officials speaking to donors include Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and White House aide Andrew Giuliani, according to a copy of the agenda reviewed by The Washington Post.

1. That's a good way for Trump to make tons of money through the RNC.

I'm sure a lot of people are staying at the hotel ($795 to $2000/night), but the room rental for his meetings will probably be
astronomical. Add to that people eating/drinking on site.

Art of the Deal in action.
