With protesters outside chanting "Shame! Shame!" President Donald Trump held the first fundraiser of his 2020 reelection campaign at his international hotel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday—an event described as a "new low" by one government ethics expert.
"Anytime he profits from the hotel, as he is doing tonight, he is violating the domestic emoluments clause."
—Norm Eisen, former Obama ethics czar
