This week, President Trump will combine his three roles — president, businessman and politician — into one event at the Trump Hotel in Washington. At an expensive fundraiser for his 2020 re-election, he not only will rake in cash for his campaign, but also run up a huge pile of revenues for his business. His latest financial disclosure suggests that it is lucrative for him to spend time at his own properties.

NPR’s Marilyn Geewax (@geewaxnpr) joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss the president’s financial ties.
