U.S. State Department Used Taxpayer Money to Promote Trump's Private Mar-a-Lago

Washington, May 31 (RHC)-- The U.S. State Department is facing criticism after using taxpayer money to promote President Trump’s private, for-profit Florida resort Mar-a-Lago. 

On a State Department website, a promotional article offers an "inside look at the Winter White House"—that’s Mar-a-Lago.  The watchdog group American Oversight says it will file an ethics complaint with the State Department and the Office of Government Ethics. 

Oregon Democratic Senator Ron Wyden criticized the promotion, tweeting: "Yes, I am curious @StateDept. Why are taxpayer dollars promoting the President’s private country club?"
