Lobbying did not work for tax bill
Howard Lorber will host a fundraiser for President Trump’s 2020 campaign in the Hamptons this Friday afternoon. Real estate bigwigs expected to attend include Steve Witkoff, Stanley Chera, and the Castmatidis family, according to Bloomberg.
The NYC lobbying hasn’t helped… Before the tax bill was passed in Congress, Richard Lefrak lobbied Trump at the home of Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman. LeFrak voiced concern over the negative impact of the tax bill on New Yorkers… Trump responded wryly, “You guys seem to be doing O.K.”
Why it matters: It doesn’t! Just some fun summer news.
