“The latest expenditures at the Trump hotel, just blocks from the White House, bring total spending by GOP entities, including Donald Trump’s own re-election committee, to about $4.7 million at Trump hotels, restaurants, and golf courses since he was elected,” they explained.

“In 2015-2016, Trump properties took in $13,530,000—98.6% of which came from Trump-related committees, per data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics,” Quart noted.
