Founder Of Florida Spa In Sex Trafficking Raid Took Selfie With Trump At Mar-A-Lago Super Bowl Party

The Miami Herald reports:

Seated at a round table littered with party favors and the paper-cutout footballs that have become tradition at his annual Super Bowl Watch Party, President Donald Trump cheered the New England Patriots and his longtime friend, team owner Robert Kraft, to victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Feb. 3. Sometime during the party at Trump’s West Palm Beach country club, the president turned in his chair to look over his right shoulder, smiling for a photo with two women at a table behind him.

The woman who snapped the blurry Super Bowl selfie with the president was Li Yang, 45, a self-made entrepreneur from China who started a chain of Asian day spas in South Florida. Over the years, these establishments — many of which operate under the name Tokyo Day Spas — have gained a reputation for offering sexual services. Nineteen days after Trump and Yang posed together while rooting for the Patriots, authorities would charge Kraft with soliciting prostitution at a spa in Jupiter that Yang had founded more than a decade earlier.

Roll Call reports:

Yang was spotted in photos with Trump, Trump’s children and with Florida politician Ron DeSantis at the president’s resort, Mar-a-Lago, the paper reported. She also made contributions to Trump Victory and the president’s campaign. Yang said the parlor had been long since sold, that she was no longer in the business and has plans to move to Washington, D.C., the Herald reported. She was not charged in the case, and none of the parlors that were part of the bust are registered to her or her family.
