State Department Site Pitches Mar-A-Lago

USA Today reports:

An article about Mar-a-lago started making the Twitter rounds Monday afternoon after users — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. — noticed that it was appearing on the official website for the U.S. embassy in London. But where did it come from?

The post, which describes the Trump property as the “winter White House” and details its history, first appeared April 4 on, a government website run by the State Department. The site purports to share “compelling stories and images that spark discussion and debate.”

The U.S. embassy in London picked up the story on April 5 for its blog. The post only became a sensation on Monday after journalists noted it on Twitter. The Democrats jumped on it, questioning why a property owned by Trump was being promoted on a government site.
