Election 2020 Politics

Political spending at Trump properties is down (because Trump’s campaigns aren’t spending money at them)

What’s more, much less of that spending is happening in Washington, where it may have been more likely to attract Trump’s attention. In 2017, about 13 percent of spending in the first six months of the year was at Trump’s D.C. hotel or its restaurant. In 2019, about a quarter was. This year, only about 4 percent was spent in D.C. Instead, 85 percent of 2021 spending has been at Trump’s properties in Florida, mostly Mar-a-Lago where the former president was encamped for most of the year. In 2019, only about a third of spending was in Florida.
