  10. NPR: Documents show Trump lost millions operating D.C. hotel The company incurred over $70 million in net losses, according to the House Oversight Committee. The panel said Trump claimed the hotel, on Pennsylvania Avenue a few blocks from the White House, generated $150 million in revenue during his time in office.
