It was mention today that Brian Spicer (presidential spokesperson) mentioned how nice the Trump Hotel was yesterday. It was mentioned today on MSNBC that government servants/officials are not allowed to endorse products or brands. How long before this is violated? My Beautiful Hotel! Update: This post was initially made with an error, but not in purpose. Trump as President is exempt from this ethics law which applies to government employees, but not the President or Vice President. However his daughter, if she is employed by the government would be answerable to this ethics rule.
