In January this year, the white house was accused of systematically using whitehouse website to promote Melania Trump’s business so that it would be exposed to millions of people. Amid reports that the federal government is also promoting President Donald Trump’s Florida resort club Mar-a-Lago, the white house decided to remove the article relating to Trump’s money-making enterprises from it’s website. The State Department further issued a statement and apologized for any misperception. The statement reads: “The intention of the article was to inform the public about where the president has been hosting world leaders,”
It was Sen. Ron Wyden who questioned in a Twitter message, why the State Department would spend taxpayer’s money in promoting the president’s private country club.
