The Trump campaign is introducing a bill for necessary replacements in the White House grounds after necessary Republican National Convention events in the White House damaged parts of the South Lawn and Rose Garden last month, a senior campaign official said Told NBC News on Tuesday.
The amount to improve the landscape is unknown, but a White House official said it is not completely uncommon after major incidents on complex lawns to be repaired.
The White House also confirmed the payment in a statement.
He said, ‘Taxpayers are being given money at no cost. Additionally, other planned infrastructure work is taking place on the south side, ”White House spokesman Jude Deere told NBC News.
However, the cost-paying campaign may attract the will of ethics officials, who have previously raised serious objections to a political conference featuring several government officials, including the president and vice president, being held at the White House. Under a federal law known as the Hatch Act, public servants are prohibited from engaging in certain political activities and using government resources for political campaigns.
The Rose Garden underwent extensive renovations before the speech of first lady Melania Trump. The first woman worked for months with historians, horticulturists and others to restore the Rose Garden to the original design of 1962 for her speech.
More than 1,500 people gathered on the grounds of the White House during President Donald Trump’s nomination acceptance speech, requiring heavy equipment for mass production, including staging and lighting.
