Announcement Date: July 18, 2017

The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. government is paying $130,000 per month to lease a space in Trump Tower, according to lease information obtained through a FOIA request to the General Services Administration. The price is well above market rate for similar properties in Manhattan and is one of the most expensive residential rentals in the city. The Pentagon said that the space is privately owned by an individual who has no connections to the Trump Organization.
