How some of Trump's biggest businesses fared during the first year of his presidency
- President Donald Trump's first year in office provided mixed results for some of his biggest businesses.
- Some of those businesses, like his Washington, DC, hotel, fared quite well.
- Others, like a few of Trump's major golf courses, saw income shrink compared to the previous year.
President Donald Trump's first year in office proved to be a mixed bag for his business empire.The 2017 report covered all of 2016, which Trump spent campaigning for president and, after winning the November election that year, as president-elect.
One of the most substantial dips was at the Trump Park Avenue building in New York City, where income dipped from $29.9 million reported in the 2017 disclosure to slightly more than $14 million in the 2018 edition.
The Trump National Doral golf resort also saw a significant dip in income, going from $115.8 million in the 2017 report to $74.7 million this year. The president's Mar-a-Lago resort saw a plunge too, going from $37.2 million in income to $25.1 million.
But some of Trump's assets saw their fortunes go upward. Perhaps no property saw more benefit than Trump's Washington, DC, hotel, which saw income spike from $19.6 million to $40.4 million. Of note, the hotel first opened late 2016.
Trump International Hotels Management saw a nearly 500% growth in income, going from $2.8 million to $17.1 million, while the Trump Turnberry golf resort saw a nearly $6 million bump in reported income in this year's financial disclosure.
