Report: Trump To Skip Election Night Party At His DC Hotel
President Donald Trump reportedly has scrapped plans to appear at an election night party at his Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and instead will likely remain at the White House, according to The New York Times.
Advisers had said privately that Mr. Trump was going to appear at his namesake hotel in Washington for an election night party for which his campaign had sent out multiple fund-raising solicitations to his supporters.
“November 3rd will go down in history as the night we won FOUR MORE YEARS. It will be absolutely EPIC, and the only thing that could make it better is having YOU there,” read one solicitation from the president that included an image of Mr. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, under the words “Join us on election night.”
The Times reported that Trump’s reason for changing course is unclear, but the newspaper noted that “the prospect of the president appearing on the night of the election at the hotel was certain to reinforce concerns about Mr. Trump mingling the office with his business.”
