Donald Trump‘s campaign committee just blew a fortune on an act that was supposed to perform for free, but ended up costing millions.
It all started out as a favor to Trump, courtesy of Vegas mogul Steve Wynn. The Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas has a house act — ShowStoppers, which performs Broadway songs and old hits.
Wynn flew the group out to D.C. for a performance at Tuesday’s Chairman’s Global Dinner. Wynn donated a million dollars to the Inaugural Committee to cover all the costs, or so he thought.
Turns out there are all sorts of huge production expenses … all tolled, the bill came to over $2 million. It sounds crazy, but our Inaugural Committee sources say the Committee had to pay the additional costs, which was over a million.
It’s ironic … Trump passed on a Hall of Fame Rock & Roll band because they demanded a million bucks.
