President Donald Trump acknowledges that foreign leaders sometimes rent out rooms in his hotels, but
still thinks being president of the United States is «one of the great losers of all times» from a financial perspective.
Trump made the remarks in an interview with The New York Times on Thursday, complaining that the job of being president does not boost his economic prospects.
Trump made the comments after complaining that he is treated badly by the press. The Kuwaiti embassy held an independence day party at the hotel in both 2018 and 2017. The Philippines’ independence day party was also hosted at the hotel last year.
. In 2016, after Trump won the presidential election, the hotel hosted the embassy of Bahrain’s national
day party, as well as a Hanukkah party co-hosted by the embassy of Azerbaijan.
The general manager at Trump’s hotel in New York — which the Trump Organization manages — credited Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his entourage for the sharp uptick in the hotel’s revenue in early 2018.
Maryland and District of Columbia attorneys general have brought forward a lawsuit arguing that Trump is violating the Constitution by continuing to do business with foreign governments as president.
