With Re-Election Fundraiser Set For This Week, Revisiting Trump Financial Ties

Jun 26, 2017

This week, President Trump will combine his three roles — president, businessman and politician — into one event at the Trump Hotel in Washington. At an expensive fundraiser for his 2020 re-election, he not only will rake in cash for his campaign, but also run up a huge pile of revenues for his business.

NPR’s Marilyn Geewax (@geewaxnpr) joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss the president’s financial ties.
