President Donald Trump's Initial Fund Excessively Used At His DC Hotel, New Document Show
President Donald Trump's inaugural committee spent more than $ 1.5 million at the Trump International Hotel in Washington before breaking in 2017, according to internal documents reviewed by ABC News.
It's part of a series of expenses there and elsewhere that included more than $ 130,000 for custom two-gallon seat cushions for the elected president, $ 10,000 to provide makeup for the servers at another formal dinner and $ 2.7 million to a company that produced a Broadway-style rendition of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" using Las Vegas show girls flown in by Trump's friend Steve Wynn to a private event.
Compared to previous initiations, the celebrations around Trump's swearing were modest ̵

"These initial committees, if there is no good transparency and revelation, can become difficult means," said Rep. John Sarbanes, a Maryland Democrat who has served in the House Oversight Committee. "Therefore, you must have requirements that describe what the cost is, where it comes from, put some restrictions on the kind of expenses that are appropriate so that it really goes against initial needs and not other purposes."
