Kuwait could pay up to $60,000 for party at Trump Hotel in Washington

Source: Reuters

The Kuwaiti government could pay up to $60,000 to President Donald Trump's hotel in Washington for a party on Saturday that will be an early test of Trump's promise to turn over profits from such events to the U.S. Treasury.

The Kuwait Embassy is hosting an event to mark their National Day. Similar National Day celebrations at the Trump International Hotel for a crowd of several hundred can run from $40,000 to $60,000, according to cost estimates from the hotel seen by Reuters. The hotel declined to comment on the figures.

One of Trump's lawyers, Sheri Dillon, pledged at a Jan. 11 press conference to donate any Trump Hotel profits from foreign governments to the U.S. Treasury.

The White House and Alan Garten, the general counsel for the Trump Organization, did not return calls for comment on whether any profits from foreign government payments to the hotel have been donated. Dillon's firm declined to comment.

2. Why do I get the feeling that the hotel will claim little to no real profit kind of like how

alot of hollywood movies and TV shows claim little to no profit in order to screw over those who are supposed to get a percentage of the profits?

10. "The ethics experts say Trump is still technically a recipient of payments to his hotels because he

 

still has an ownership interest in them."

12. Kuwait-the country that lied us into the Gulf War. The war of GHW Bush 1990


Bush needed more support for the war waged to teach Saddam Hussein a lesson.

A young woman from Kuwait gave tearful public testimony to Congress about seeing Iraqi soldiers throwing premature babies out of incubators in Kuwait, and throwing people out of cars.

Turned out the testimony was false and the woman was the daughter of the Iraqi ambassador sent to give us disinformation.

That war radicalized Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber, He later wrote about the atrocities he witnessed and participated in as a soldier

When the war ended President Bush had some American soldiers clean and scrub a Kuwaiti Prince's palace.

Let's remember this Trump hotel rental after the Usurper is removed from office.
