In the first year of the Trump presidency, the watchdog group Public Citizen counted at least 19 interest groups that held events at Trump properties, including those representing miners, oil drillers, hedge fund operators, insurers, funeral home directors and commercial real estate investors.Next up, a payday lending group will be heading to the Doral in April for its annual conference.SUCCESSThe lobbying group that represents "Big Candy" interests such as Mars and Hershey's has held two events at Trump properties in the past year – at the Doral in Miami in March and the Trump International Hotel Washington in September.Christopher Gindlesperger, a spokesman for the group, said the Miami event was booked in 2014, a year before Trump entered the presidential race, and the Washington event in 2015 before Trump became president.The lobbying group has scheduled another event at the Trump hotel in Washington this September.Trump said last month that he would look into another priority for the group, loosening rules on consumer lending.Oxbow spokesman Brad Goldstein said no business was discussed during Trump's visit to the party and stressed that Koch has long held events at Trump's club.
