Cindy (Li) Yang, the founder of a chain of spas and massage parlors that have been linked to sex trafficking, also used a consulting business she runs to offer to sell clients access to President Trump and his family at Mar-a-Lago, according to Yahoo News.
Photos surfaced this week of Yang, who donated to the Republican Party and the Trump campaign, which included a selfie with the president at a Super Bowl viewing party at Mar-a-Lago.
Yang’s company, GY US Investment LLC, has a website written mostly in Chinese. The website showed that she and her clients mixed socially at the presidential retreat. Yang had a large network within the Republican Party. She had photos with the president, members of his family, members of Congress, and White House aides.
Yang and her husband, Zubin Gong, founded the company in 2017. The company describes itself as a consulting firm that helps American businesses "expand their brand image in the modern Chinese marketplace.” The company website was taken down on the day that a Herald story was published about Yang’s connection to the spas.
Yang’s website, which showcases photos of her with key members of the Trump administration, says businesses and individuals can “have the opportunity to interact with the president” and other “political figures.”
On the company website, Yang is described as a “member of the presidential fundraising committee” and was called “one of the only guests in South Florida who was invited to the White House to celebrate” the Chinese New Year in 2018.
Yang is a registered Republican, and she and her family have donated over $42,000 to a Trump political action committee since 2017. They have also donated over $16,000 to the Trump campaign.
Yang said she is no longer in the spa business and sold her Orchids of Asia Day Spa in 2013. The massage parlor is infamous due to authorities catching England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on camera paying for sex on the day of the AFC Championship game on January 20th.
