Documents showing huge profits for Trump's Washington hotel deletedDocuments showing Donald Trump’s flagship Washington hotel made nearly $2m (£1.5m) profit in the first four months of 2017 have been deleted after they were posted online by accident. The US General Services Administration hastily pulled down files that showed the Trump International, which is just down the road from the White House, had raked in $1.97m in profit despite being expected to lose some $2.1m early in its operation. The hotel has been a focus of controversy due to criticism of Mr Trump’s alleged conflicts of interest, which centre on whether his position as President gives his businesses extra cachet, and therefore an advantage over competitors.
