So… this has nothing to do with any Donald Trump enterprise, including the government of the United States, but January 12-19, 2017, Private Tours of Washington is launching an exclusive Inaugural Trump Tour.
Political expert, author and journalist Bill Thomas created the tour which will take guests from the White House to Capitol Hill and Embassy Row to the Pentagon — all the places that will make up President Donald Trump’s Washington.
Thomas’ 25 years of experience writing about Congress and the White House mean he knows Washington, but its his experience as a former standup comic that makes these tours both educational and entertaining.
Tour participants will see:
- The West Front of the Capitol Building where Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States
- The Inaugural Parade route past FBI Headquarters, the Justice, Treasury and Commerce Departments and the new Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue
- The White House and the West Wing, site of President Donald Trump’s Oval Office
- The Pentagon, headquarters of General James “Mad Dog” Mattis (Ret.), Trump’s new secretary of defense
- Embassy Row, including the Russian Embassy and nearby FBI “listening post”
- Fashionable Georgetown and Kalorama, the soon-to-be neighborhoods of many Trump appointees
- Benjamin, the swank bar and lounge in the Trump International, where wine is served by the spoon,
- RPM Italian, a creation of Bill Rancic, the first Apprentice winner in 2004 to be hired by the Trump Organization
- The Four Seasons, where Marla Maples once threw her $250,000 engagement ring and her high heels at Donald Trump, announcing, “I’ll never marry you!”
But wait, there’s more…
Five Ways Donald Trump has already changed Washington:
* Wealth of historic proportions. When President George Washington retired from office in 1797, his estimated worth of $525 million made him the richest chief executive in U.S. history — until now. With his inauguration, President Donald Trump, according to Forbes, will be worth $3.7 billion.
* Zero-based paycheck. Donald Trump will be one of only three U.S. presidents not to accept a White House salary, currently an annual $400,000. The others have been Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy. At his pay rate when he headed the Trump Organization, Trump made the equivalent of the president’s yearly earnings every workday.
* Now the French have to like us. Not since Jacqueline Kennedy, who spoke French, Spanish and Italian, has a First Lady come close to speaking as many languages as Melania Trump, who’s fluent in French, German, Serbian, her native Slovenian and adopted English.
* Office of Important Hair Management. A stylist on his former show The Apprentice, says Donald Trump’s hair is real, but its upkeep is a closely guarded secret. Trump once revealed he only lets Melania give him a trim. As for Melania’s supermodel locks, for nearly a decade the man in charge has been Israeli stylist Mordecai
* Taking-care-of-business causal. Oleg Cassini created the Jacqueline Kennedy look. Adolfo did the same for Nancy Reagan. Staying in New York while Barron finishes the school year will give Melania extra time to fine tune her White House look. Cost effectiveness will be the theme of her husband’s administration, and Melania will probably get design assistance from Ralph Lauren, who created the executive jumpsuit she wore to the final presidential debate.
Pricing starts from $465 for one or two guests, $565 for three-to-five guests and $685 for six-to-12 guests.
