Trump Organization and Secret Service unable to come to terms on lease agreement at Trump Tower.

“After much consideration, it was mutually determined that it would be more cost effective and logistically practical for the Secret Service to lease space elsewhere,” spokeswoman Amanda Miller wrote in an email to The Washington Post.
  The details of the dispute between the Trump Organization and the Secret Service were not clear Thursday. Two people familiar with the discussions said the sticking points included the price and other conditions of the lease.
On Thursday, there appeared to be a difference of opinion over whether negotiations for a Trump Tower space were still going on.
  Despite the Trump Organization’s statement to The Post on Thursday saying the agency should look elsewhere, Secret Service officials said the agency is still hoping for space in Trump Tower.  More from the Washington Post here.

Trump organization fails to provide follow through on payment from foreign governments at Trump Hotel given Donald’s promise re the Emoluments Clause.

‪Vanity Fair is reporting according to a company document, the Trump Organization is not keeping track of all payments coming in from foreign governments, and it appears it is throwing up its hands at the idea of doing so.
“It is not our intention nor design of this policy for our Properties to attempt to identify individual travelers who have not specifically identified themselves as being a representative of a foreign government entity on foreign government business,” the document reads. That would “impede upon personal privacy and diminish the guest experience of our brand”—an inconvenient fact that the president and his two adult sons, who are now running the Trump Organization, must have failed to consider.
