Trump Illegally Registered To Vote In Florida Using White House Address

In September 2019, just as he was changing his domicile of record from New York to Florida, Donald Trump filled out a voter registration form in his new state in which he stated that his "legal residence" was 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C.

Trump Organization Billed Taxpayers Nearly $1M In Hotel Fees

According to hard-won federal records obtained by The Washington Post, this number does not include "an additional $340,000 in such payments" that they've catalogued since March of this year.

Obviously, this data contradicts claims made by Eric Trump that his father's business barely charges the government anything.
