JILL COLVIN and MIKE SCHNEIDER AP, 9:40 AM PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A company run by a donor to President Donald Trump claimed it could provide Chinese clients with a chance to mingle and take photos with the president, along with access to his private club in Palm Beach, Florida. It remains unclear how much Li Yang charged for the services and whether she was ever hired to provide them. But the company’s claims and other eyebrow-raising activity, which were first reported by The Miami Herald and Mother Jones, mark the latest in a litany of complications and ethical issues stemming from Trump continuing to own and operate a private club where dues-paying members and their guests rub shoulders with the president of the United States and his family, friends, White House staff and members of his Cabinet. The Associated Press has previously reported that aides who accompany the president on frequent trips to the club are always on alert for club members and guests with … [Read more...] about Trump donor who once owned Orchids of Asia Day Spa claimed she could offer access to president

A Palm Beach County woman, who 13 years ago began creating several day spas in South Florida, is getting a lot of unwanted attention Friday. This, after the Miami Heraldreported she once owned a Jupiter day spa shut down in a highly publicized prostitution sting. The reason for all the attention: Li "Cindy" Yang is apparently an exuberant supporter of President Donald Trump, snagging selfies with the president and his wife at a Super Bowl party at a Trump golf club last month and posting them on her Facebook page. And Trump is close to part-time Palm Beach resident Robert Kraft, the most famous of hundreds of men charged in a multi-county prostitution investigation. The billionaire Kraft’s New England Patriots were playing on the big screens at the party attended by Yang, Trump and what appear to be several dozen others at Trump International Golf Club on Feb. 3. (Price of admission: $75 for adults, including open bar.) Now the connection: Kraft is charged with two … [Read more...] about From Day Spa Founder to Selfies With President Trump
