Since his inauguration, he's visited Mar-a-Lago seven times.
"By visiting this 'winter White House, ' Trump is belatedly fulfilling the dream of Mar-a-Lago's original owner and designer", the item reads.
CNN host Jake Tapper on Monday said the State Department is "shamelessly" advertising President Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.
In March, congressional Democrats introduced a bill to force disclosure of the names of visitors meeting with Trump and other administration officials at the club and at Trump Tower in NY. After his election, the resort doubled its membership fee to $200,000.
The U.S. State Department is using an official website to showcase President Donald Trump's private club, Mar-a-Lago, calling it the "Winter White House".

The "king of clay" prevailed after dropping only four sets in the final. "I felt like I was playing a bit better every day". Ramos ended his first Masters final with a double fault that handed Nadal his 70th ATP title on the third match point.
Each trip to Mar-a-Lago is estimated to cost over $3.5 million in government funds, some of which are paid to the Trump-owned resort itself. "Crawford was George W Bush's ranch and Bush brought foreign leaders from all over the world [there]". He and the foreign leaders he hosted were never placed in compromising situations where they had to handle a foreign crisis in full view of diners, as Trump and Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe did in February. "If you're telling the story of Mar-a-Lago, it's the president's private business". If not, the federal government could be sued for possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars or more for copyright violation.
The blog entry, which was posted earlier this month, stems from an earlier post by Share America, a State Department site that aims to share "compelling stories and images that spark discussion and debate on important topics" with foreign governments and USA embassies.
"This is outrageous - more exploitation of public office for Trump's personal gain", he added. "That, of course, is the kind of thing CREW and the other plaintiffs brought the emoluments case to stop". Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, asked on Twitter why taxpayers are "promoting the president's private country club" and referred to the incident as "kleptocratic".
Eisen compared it to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's promotion of Ivanka Trump's clothing business, for which she was "counseled" but not otherwise reprimanded by the White House.
But on the webpage about Mar-a-Lago, there is no discussion of policy. Conway's endorsement prompted the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to send the White House a letter asking for an investigation and recommending that Conway be disciplined, but the White House made a decision to let it slide. "Perhaps because that was, to OGE's dismay, not punished, Mnuchin later did the same thing, promoting a film of his, and now this".
