Swamp Scandal: Trump Sees Huge Gain From Govt Spending At Hotels | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


After saying he stayed at Trump’s resort in Ireland at the ‘suggestion’ of the President, Mike Pence is now backtracking his statements saying ‘at no time did the President direct’ him to stay at the ‘Doonbeg resort.’ This comes after House Dems say they will investigate Trump’s push to host G-7 summit at his property in Florida. Travel journalist Zach Everson argues, ‘the President is profiting from the presidency’ after reporting ‘$81M in income from the Trump Hotel in D.C.’ in the last two years alone.

  1. NO government officials, diplomats, etc…U.S. or foreign should stay at Trump properties. Period.

    • Jeff Okriya not only his taxes, look at places like El Paso, where he has not yet paid for his rally.

    • @jeff mcgowan And you need to work on spelling, sentence structure, critical thinking skills and you need to see an eye doctor cause you are purposefully blind. Oh and you seem to have the common sense of a spoon.

  2. Trump is bleeding the United States. While cutting programs that we the people need.

    Anyone staying in a Trump hotel should know these businesses are wired and there is NO privacy while Russian mobsters sleep next door .. NOW THATS FISHIE !

  5. The trump crime family invading 1600 Penn Ave was like a flash mob of hoodlums taking over a convienice store, stripping the shelves bare while the overwhelmed cashier looks on in immobilized dismay.

    The United States Constitution denies a President ANY income from ANY source other then their paycheck.

    • wes c …What Obama did was AFTER HE LEFT OFFICE he did speeches where he was paid millions. That’s corrupt enough. Doing favors for big banks while president, then they pay you back once out of office with gigantic speaking fees. What Trump is doing is blatant, open, corruption, right in our faces, while in office. When he gets out of office, he’ll do those same Obama type speeches since he did do the elites bidding with that tax cut for the 1%. It’s corruption on both sides. But what Trump has done is take that corruption to the extreme.

      So create a foundation or library and extort money from foreign governments and become billionaires like Clintons..,then destroy emails…

    • gnosticnihilist so, behave like comrade traitor trump. Got it.

  7. I would stay in a cardboard box before giving the conman a dime.

  8. Put the orange ape in an orange jumpsuit and give him free room and board in a Federal “Hotel”.

    • As a Taxpayer, THAT will be something I’ll enthusiastically pay for!

    • Colin Cleveland | September 6, 2019 at 11:29 AM | Reply

      @Martin Camp personally, I would rather he was made penniless and forced to live on the streets, shouting at lampposts and selling matches…

    • @Colin Cleveland All those stupid Trumpers would take him and continue to pay his bills and enrich his coffers… AS WE ALL DO NOW.

    • Colin Cleveland | September 6, 2019 at 9:12 PM | Reply

      @Martin Camp How long do you think it would take him to wear out his welcome?
      I take your point though, as GW said, You can fool some people, all of the time; and those are the ones to concentrate on.

  9. Whats the saying beware of people who say they will work for free

    • It’s a conman’s trick.  By rejecting the official salary from taxpayers, he is rejecting any official responsibilities to taxpayers.

  10. i think trump needs the cash to avoid bankruptcy, He can’t affort a private bankruptcy scandel before the election.

    • He been in bankruptcy already many times with his company, takes loans and never pays them back

    • When I talk to people, and people say things, because it’s people that I hear talkin, no joke, they say my properties are tremendous… top notch… and believe me when people are talking they are saying things, and when they said things, those are things that they said, because when you said things that you say, you are definitely saying things

    That’s why he said he didn’t want to get paid cause he knew he was going to take the US to the bank!!!

    • Riteous Right Hand | September 6, 2019 at 1:02 PM | Reply

      And his supporters eat it up. Anytime I bring up how he’s making millions off of his golf trips alone, all I hear about is how he’s not taking a salary…

    • Christo Johnson | September 6, 2019 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      Also when he goes golfing he’s funneling money like laundering government tax money

  12. tRump is a crook,always will be.If this was a democrat president, $hit would hit the fan.Its against the law

  13. VOTE Blue!! The corrupt gop has got to go

  14. Trump didn’t drain the swamp; he’s the Swamp Monster!

  15. If traitor trump is NOT impeached and indicted then why even have laws

    • James Whitfield | September 6, 2019 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      You can not just say that and expect to be taken seriously, back it up !! What are you wanting him impeached for ? He has not done anything under the impeachment laws or guidelines to even start the proceedings, so give it your best shot. What are you demanding impeaching him for ?

    • @James Whitfield they don’t know give them a few minutes I promise that they will come up with more hearsay aka a B.S. lie

  16. Most corrupt administration in the history of America.

  17. I would sleep in my car, a tent or on the ground in the rain before I’d stay at a trump dump!

  18. 81 million taxpayers dollars in Trump’s pocket and his supporters say he works for free…jeebus

  19. Anyone thinking that Trump is doing a good job is as crazy as he is.

    • @God Bless us all Do you ever stop and think? What are the future implications for you once the rights and freedom you now enjoy and take for granted are taken away, first from people YOU don’t like, later people around you Trump doesn’t like and finally YOU! Google this common historical method of seizing control of free countries. Don’t be a dupe!

    • God Bless us all again No facts just. Fox not news propaganda. Trump is as corrupt as the day is long, why should Democrats work with him? He has nothing that he is working on any way except that stupid wall

    • God Bless us all try Obstruction of justice; violation of the emollients clause

  20. Never vote for thieves. People like Trump never change its in their DNA.
