DONALD JR/SOCIAL MEDIA/TRUMP FAMILY: “Donald Trump Jr. revealed Tuesday [11-5-19] that his father has warned him on more than one occasion to cool down the incendiary rhetoric on his Twitter feed, with President Donald Trump reportedly cautioning that his son’s social media presence was ‘getting a little hot’…Trump Jr., who was appearing on the president’s favorite cable morning program to promote his new book, proceeded to re-enact one such conversation with his father — extending his thumb and little finger and holding his hand to his ear to mimic an incoming phone call from the West Wing…Trump Jr. acknowledged, however, that while he values his father’s counsel, the efforts to chill his posts online weren’t especially convincing given the president’s propensity for regularly firing off explosive tweets.”

ETHICS/TRUMP BUSINESS/TRUMP FAMILY: “The Trump Organization is considering selling its luxury hotel in Washington, D.C., after years of scrutiny of alleged conflicts of interest and breaches of the Constitution since Donald Trump ascended to the White House…The Trump International Hotel Washington, which occupies a 120-year-old Romanesque structure formerly known as the Old Post Office Building, is one block from the National Mall and has served as an opulent rendezvous point for Republican politicos, administration officials and other allies of the White House. But the hotel’s influential guests and the president’s refusal to divest himself from his business properties has opened Trump up to accusations that he has broken federal law through his business — including violating the Constitution’s emoluments, or anticorruption, clauses.”

ETHICS/GOLF/SCOTLAND/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP BUSINESS/TRUMP FAMILY: “Last month, the Trump family business received approval from a local government in Scotland for a major expansion of its golf resort near Aberdeen, marking the largest real estate development financed by the Trump Organization since the 2016 election. In August, President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., flew to Jakarta to help kick-start sales at a pair of Trump-branded luxury resorts planned for Indonesia. He appeared at a private event with wealthy prospective buyers and joined his politically connected billionaire Indonesian business partner at a news conference. And last year, Donald Jr. visited India to sell condos at future Trump-branded towers, appearing at an event that also featured India’s prime minister. But for the children of the politically powerful, personal business and public dealings can often be indistinguishable, especially when private projects depend on foreign governments that are looking to bolster ties with Washington.”

CANADA/DONALD JR/SECRET SERVICE/TRUMP FAMILY: “Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, flew to Canada for one of his regular visits to the Yukon mountains to hunt stone sheep with friends. He was accompanied by Secret Service agents on that August 2017 trip, just as he had been since his father was sworn in as president six months earlier. The Secret Service frequented several Vancouver hotels: Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel, Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver Harbourfront and Lakeview Inn and Suites. But it spent the most money at the president’s hotel, the Trump International Hotel and Tower Vancouver, according to documents obtained by POLITICO. The Secret Service is required to protect the president’s children, but the tendency of Trump and his family to funnel funds to their own properties has complicated what had been a routine practice. Critics say the Trumps are using the presidency to boost the president’s businesses by forcing the federal government to spend taxpayer money at Trump properties. Congress hasn’t launched a formal investigation into federal spending at Trump properties, but some House Democrats are eyeing it as a future area for congressional examination.”

GUNS/IVANKA/MASS SHOOTINGS/TRUMP FAMILY: “Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago harshly criticized Ivanka Trump on Tuesday [8-6-19] after the president’s daughter weighed in on that city’s weekend of violence. Just after noon, Ms. Trump, a White House adviser, wrote on Twitter that ‘with seven dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City,’ the nation ‘mustn’t become numb’ to inner-city violence even as it reels from two mass shootings that killed dozens last weekend. The problem? Ms. Trump’s second tweet was not entirely accurate, according to Ms. Lightfoot. The numbers cited, seven dead and 52 wounded, included all the people in the city who were killed or hurt by gunfire over the weekend; they did not reflect the toll of a single shooting…The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday [8-7-19], but at the Tuesday news conference, Ms. Lightfoot lamented that there had been “zero contact” between Ms. Trump and the city before the tweets were published.”

TRUMP FAMILY/TRUMP PEOPLE: “A Chicago waitress was placed on leave after Eric Trump, one of the president’s sons, accused her of spitting on him while he was having dinner on Tuesday [6-25-19] night. An official with the Trump Organization, where Mr. Trump is an executive vice president, said the woman who spit on him was immediately handcuffed and detained by the Secret Service and the Chicago police. She was released after about two hours when Mr. Trump decided not to press charges. The episode on Tuesday at The Aviary, an upscale cocktail bar just west of downtown Chicago, was not the first time someone close to President Trump has reported harassment while out in public. Last year, protesters shouted ‘Shame!’ while Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, ate at a Mexican restaurant in Washington. Also last year, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was then the White House press secretary, was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because of her political work.”

GOLF/IRELAND/TRUMP FAMILY: “When Eric and Donald Trump, Jr. arrived in the one corner of Ireland celebrating their father’s first visit as U.S. president, they had one question for the locals: ‘Does Doonbeg love Trump?’ Unlike the protests that greeted Trump in London this week, there were no inflatable blimps depicting him as a baby or large statues of him sitting on a golden lavatory, trousers around his ankles, when the president visited the tiny Irish village. Instead Doonbeg’s residents decked the streets in American flags and stars and stripes bunting, crediting Trump with securing their livelihoods when in 2014 he bought the nearby golf resort where he will spend the next two nights. Amid a celebratory street party of Irish dancing, Trump’s two sons went from pub to pub posing for selfies with kids, shaking hands and buying drinks for all the patrons.”

BRITAIN/FOREIGN DIGNITARIES/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP FAMILY: “When Queen Elizabeth II welcomed the president on Monday [6-3-19] for his first state visit to Britain, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner watched from a Buckingham Palace balcony. Later, at a state banquet, Eric Trump posed for photographs. During dinner, Donald Trump Jr. tucked into a menu including lamb and halibut as Tiffany Trump chatted with the queen’s private secretary…They were also present on Tuesday [6-4-19] at Mr. Trump’s news conference with the British prime minister, Theresa May, seated in the second row, in front of some of the president’s senior government advisers. The president has also said that his children would join him on a tour on Tuesday of the Churchill War Rooms, and American officials said they might go to Normandy for the French leg of the trip, too. Whether they had official roles in the visit or not, the extended Trump family seemed to materialize in London overnight — all save the president’s youngest son, Barron, who stayed home.”

TRUMP BUSINESS/TRUMP FAMILY: “When Donald J. Trump became president, he left his eldest sons in charge of his company, with a mandate to continue expanding the family’s business and brand — which they said at the time was ‘the hottest it has ever been.’ Now, more than two years into his presidency, there is growing evidence that the Trump brand is cooling off. The latest indication was in Mr. Trump’s financial disclosure report, made public on Thursday [5-16-19], which showed that revenues across the president’s businesses in 2018 were down about 4 percent from the previous year. Many of his biggest revenue generators, like his Doral resort and Washington hotel, had only tiny increases, while revenues from his famed club, Mar-a-Lago, dropped nearly 10 percent. The New York Times dug through the numbers for clues about how Mr. Trump’s businesses are faring just past the midway point of his term in office. Here are five takeaway…”
