Analysis Finds Big Spending at Trump's DC Hotel

Almost $56,000 in taxpayer money has been spent at the hotel five blocks from the White House

The Trump International Hotel is an ongoing legal headache for President Donald Trump but a welcoming place for members of his administration and their supporters, NBC News reported.

Foreign governments, federal government agencies and Republican party organizations all spent significant sums at the hotel five blocks from the White House since Trump's inauguration, according to an analysis of public filings and social media.

Almost $56,000 in taxpayer money has been spent at the hotel as well, the analysis found.
