Trump ‘scandal-ridden’ by hotel-industry corruption
President Donald Trump has been embroiled in a scandal-ridden saga since the beginning.
The hotel industry has been accused of paying for trips and gifts for some of the most senior members of the Trump administration, while others have faced legal battles and accusations of wrongdoing.
On Wednesday, Trump was in Florida to announce a new round of executive actions aimed at reviving the American economy.
But the president also faced scrutiny from some of his closest aides, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
Trump’s actions could set off a chain reaction, leading to investigations by the Justice Department and congressional committees into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election.
Trump and Sessions, who were both appointed by Trump, have denied wrongdoing and have also maintained that there is no evidence of collusion between their campaigns and Russia.
