The Washington Post reported that a large delegation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison stayed at the Trump National Doral in Miami for a week in December, while in town for the Orange Bowl—raising concerns about domestic emoluments violations. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a public research university that received $890 million in federal funding and $436 million in state funding for the 2016-2017 academic year. The total cost of UW-Madison delegation’s stay is reportedly expected to be “well over $100,000.”  A university spokesperson said the bill would be paid using bowl proceeds.
