Trump "likes" tweet connecting massage parlor owner to Mar-a-lago

President Trump late Saturday night appeared to "like" a tweet from Mother Jones linking to a story titled, "A Florida massage parlor owner has been selling Chinese execs access to Trump at Mar-a-Lago," according to an account that tracks Trump family Twitter activity.

The backdrop: The Mother Jones piece dives into the strange saga of Li Yang, a Trump donor from China who founded a chain of massage parlors in Florida — including the one at which New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been accused of soliciting prostitution. Yang took a picture with Trump at a Super Bowl party at his West Palm Beach golf club last month, and reportedly runs an investment business that offers opportunities "to interact with the president, the [American] Minister of Commerce and other political figures."
