Pence To Speak At Heritage Foundation Event At Trump's DC Hotel

Mike Pence will be the keynote speaker at a Heritage Foundation event at Donald Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, according to Politico.

The event, which will be held in the hotel's presidential ballroom, will honor major donors who contribute at least $1,000 each year, per Politico.

Trump's hotel in D.C. presents a conflict of interest for the president, as he leases the building from the federal government and will oversee the General Services Administration as president.

His hotel in D.C. also may create opportunities for co-mingling of Trump's business and his duties as president. As Politico noted, two foreign countries, Azerbaijan and Bahrain, have booked events at Trump's hotel, located blocks from the White House.
