Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago is struggling to bring in business amid political backlash against the president, the Washington Post reports.

Where it stands: County documents show profits between 2015 and 2018 for the hotel have fallen 89%, from $16.7 million to $1.8 million. Company lawyers are arguing to have the business' taxes lowered. To keep up, the lavish establishment is cutting costs by leaving jobs open, rolling back amenities and purchasing cheaper supplies.

  • Documents show other Chicago hotels are largely remaining steady.

The big picture: A number of President Trump's properties have struggled to keep steady since his administration began. While he visits the establishments often, bringing some benefit, many are still having to adjust.

Between the lines: Trump is also facing multiple allegations of violating the emoluments clause through his properties, which financially benefit from hosting the president and his events, as well as foreign dignitaries.

Mary Trump book: How she leaked Trump financials to NYT

Simon & Schuster

In her new memoir, President Trump's niece reveals how she leaked hordes of confidential Trump family financial documents to the New York Times in an effort to expose her uncle, whom she portrays as a dangerous sociopath.

Why it matters: Trump was furious when he found out recently that Mary Trump, a trained psychologist, would be publishing a tell-all memoir. And Trump's younger brother, Robert, tried and failed to block the publication of "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man."

Fauci: "False narrative" to take comfort in lower coronavirus death rate

Anthony Fauci said at an event with Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) on Tuesday "that it's a false narrative to take comfort in a lower rate of death" from the coronavirus in the U.S., warning: "There’s so many other things that are dangerous and bad about the virus. Don’t get into false complacency."

The big picture: The mean age of Americans currently being infected by the virus has declined by 15 years compared to where it stood several months ago. This has been one contributing factor in the lower death rate the U.S. has experienced during the recent surge in cases, since "the younger you are, the better you do, and the less likely you're gonna get seriously ill and die," Fauci said.
