Trump to Host Reelection Fundraiser at Trump Hotel in DC

President Donald Trump will hold his first major reelection fundraiser next week at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Trump's campaign director, Michael Glassner, confirmed the location to the Associated Press on Wednesday. Glassner called the hotel a "premier and convenient location" for the June 28 fundraiser.

Weeks before Election Day in November, the Trump Organization completed a $200 million renovation of the government property, according to the AP.

Trump has since distanced himself from the finances of the hotel, but critics have said the president's business ties create conflicts of interest for him to govern.

The U.S. General Services Administration, which reviewed whether Trump's status as both landlord and tenant of the hotel was a conflict of interest, said in March that the president's ties to the building do not violate federal rules that bar elected officials from taking part in a lease of federal property.
