The Embassy of Kuwait celebrated its National Day at the Trump International Hotel – Washington, D.C., moving the event from the Four Seasons, where it had signed a contract in the early fall. The move was allegedly at the suggestion of members of the Trump Organization, though Kuwait’s ambassador denied being pressured. The event was estimated to cost up to $60,000 and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin reportedly attended.
