Trump’s new dance studio is ‘a complete and total disaster’
When Trump first signed on to the new dance company in 2017, he claimed that his new dance business would “become a major source of income” for the administration.
It has since been revealed that Trump’s newly launched company, Afterhours Dance Studio, is a complete and complete disaster.
The website has already been shut down by the Federal Communications Commission for “incitement to harassment” and a “pornography-promoting website.”
The Federal Trade Commission has also fined Trump and the company for a “hostile work environment” that included being “hostiles to business.”
Despite the company’s alleged failure to live up to Trump’s promises, the president continued to profit off the business, as he announced in his 2017 inauguration speech that he had been awarded $1.9 million for the dance studio.
Since then, Trump has continued to rake in billions in profits from Afterhours’ business, even as it has been shuttered.
When the Trump administration shut down Afterhours, it was one of the first major business announcements made by President Trump.
But after more than a year of delays, the company has yet to return to business.
On Friday, The New York Times reported that after Trump signed on for the new business, Trump’s administration was “trying to avoid a lawsuit and a potential lawsuit by refusing to let the company reopen.”
Trump also claimed that the company was “too big to fail,” despite the fact that its founders have been accused of “serious criminal conduct” and have “multiple felony convictions” for “hacking, fraud and money laundering.”
The report also noted that the Trump Administration was trying to “avoid a lawsuit by avoiding admitting wrongdoing in court.”
As the president’s new business is yet to reopen, Trump continues to profit from the company, despite the company being shuttered, and despite the president continuing to be a part of the business’s operations.
Afterhours has been a part-time dance studio for years, and its founders had stated on social media that they wanted to continue to work with the Trump White House and make money from it.
But the Trump dance studio has been in decline for the past few years.
In January, Afterwords closed its doors after Trump’s inauguration, but the company continued to operate through a different company called Dance Factory, which has since closed its door.
The company also stated that the “new owners are not affiliated with or under any affiliation with any government agency,” and that “they do not hold any federal or state licenses or permits.”
The Dance Factory site was also deleted by the FCC on Friday.
The Dance Studio website was also shut down for “hostility to business,” according to The Times.
After Hours Dance Studio has been an important part of Trump’s political career since he began his presidential bid, and the Trump team continues to benefit from it despite its closure.
As The New Yorker reported in 2016, the dance company was a major Trump fundraiser, donating $1 million in 2016 to help fund his campaign and other events.
But in the months following the election, the Trump campaign had to scramble to find new dance partners for the Trump brand, and after months of waiting, AfterHours was the only one that was willing to sign on to participate in Trump’s rebranding.
