Announcement Date: March 30, 2017

During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked whether President Trump and Eric Trump had spoken since the president assumed office and whether Eric Trump’s plan to update his father on the success of the business violated the president’s ethics plan. Mr. Spicer responded, “I don’t know if they’ve spoken… I think everything that is being done in terms of reports or updates is being done in a consultation with the Counsel’s Office.” Mr. Spicer was also asked how the White House had settled on Mar-a-Lago as the location to host Chinese President Xi Jinping in the upcoming April summit. He responded, I would just suggest to you that both sides discussed various locations and topics and agendas and length, et cetera, and aspects to the trip. And this is what we’ve arrived at.”
