Trump staffers spent $1,000 on drinks at Mar-a-Lago in one night and taxpayers flipped the bill

By

Last week, a report by Washington Post journalists revealed that the Secret Service was paying Trump's resorts as much as $650 a night for rooms. And in some cases, even as much as $17,000 a month for one three-bedroom cottage. 

David Fahrenthold used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain those documents. And yesterday, he took to Twitter to share even more documents he had received, showing that the Secret Service isn't the only one spending big at Trump properties.

The documents, initially reported on by Derek Kravitz of ProPublica in 2019, were obtained in the same way and show that the White House paid Mar-a-Lago more than $1,000 for Trump's White House staffers to enjoy over 50 drinks in one night.
