Trump administration pulls down State Department page promoting Mar-a-Lago
The Trump administration has pulled down a State Department web page that promoted President Donald Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida after it was criticized by federal ethics experts.
In place of the web page, the State Department post reads: “The intention of the article was to inform the public about where the President has been hosting world leaders. We regret any misperception and have removed the post.”
The original post was part of the ShareAmerica webpage, calling Trump’s resort an “American treasure.”
“By visiting this ‘winter White House,’ Trump is belatedly fulfilling the dream of Mar-a-Lago’s original owner and designer,” the page said.
