Trump to mark first anniversary of inauguration with glitzy gala

Trump to mark first anniversary of inauguration with glitzy gala

Trump in a morning tweet urged lawmakers to pass the short-term spending bill - and took a shot at Democrats as the blame game over a potential shutdown between the two parties intensified.

Thursday's gala was organized by Trumpettes USA, a group of female socialites that began in 2015 with a mission to get Trump elected.

The brilliance behind this is that even though President Trump isn't expected to attend the posh event due to the government shutdown, aptly dubbed Schumer's Shutdown after obstructionist Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he still stands to make money, to the angst of The Washington Post.

According to Politico, unless Congress can bang out a last-minute deal ahead of Friday's deadline, the president will delay his trip to Mar-a-Lago. He had to bail on his own party at his Palm Beach resort, where Republicans gathered to commemorate the inaugural anniversary.


Kennedy was America's first Palm Beach president, but Donald Trump is redefining the role.

"The prevailing view among election lawyers is that the law isn't violated so long as the campaign committee pays fair market value for the goods and services received from Mar-a-Lago", Ryan told The Post. Kramer was "dismayed" when two dozen private charities canceled Mar-a-Lago events in the light of Trump's controversial comments regarding the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August, The Palm Beach Post reported. "We'll celebrate the one-year anniversary sometime soon".

Donors paid $100,000 a couple for tickets -- or $250,000 a couple to participate in a roundtable with Trump.
