Perhaps no property saw more benefit than Trump's Washington, DC, hotel, which saw income spike from $19.6 million to $40.4 million.

The venue became a hot spot for supporters, lobbyists, White House officials, and foreign dignitaries in Washington, and has been a see-and-be-seen venue since Trump's inauguration.

More than $350,000 in campaign funds contributed to the hotel's revenue, 60 percent coming from events hosted by the Republican National Committee, according to an analysis by USA Today.

President Trump's golf courses missed par a year ago, earning less money than before he took office.

Trump International Hotels Management saw a almost 500% growth in income, going from $2.8 million to $17.1 million, while the Trump Turnberry golf resort saw a almost $6 million bump in reported income in this year's financial disclosure.

Trump was not at the club at the time.
