Trump’s Friend, Billionaire Steve Wynn, Resigns as RNC Chair

HeadlineJan 30, 2018
H5 wynn

Casino billionaire Steve Wynn has resigned as the Republican National Committee’s finance chair, in the wake of a Wall Street Journal exposé that revealed Wynn had sexually harassed women who worked at his Las Vegas casinos for decades. The Republican Governors Association has announced it will return $100,000 in donations from Wynn’s company in the wake of the revelations. Wynn is a close friend of President Trump, who has also been accused by 16 women of sexual harassment or assault. Wynn filled in for Trump and spoke at the Mar-a-Lago inauguration anniversary fundraiser a week ago, after President Trump couldn’t leave Washington, D.C., because of the government shutdown.
