Announcement Date: May 24, 2017

BuzzFeed News reported that Mar-a-Lago Guest Reception Manager Heather Rinkus was working for President Trump’s “advance and logistics team”, in preparation for his G-7 Summit appearance in Taormina, Italy. BuzzFeed News was unable to determine whether it was the Trump Organization or the government that had paid for Rinkus’s work, or whether she had resigned from her position at Mar-a-Lago. Nevertheless, Rinkus had purportedly been granted “an official White House email address and government-issued phone”.
