A photo of United States President Donald Trump with a woman at a Super Bowl party emerged on Friday and is causing quite a stir. The woman, 45-year-old Li Yang, is the founder of a chain of spas in Florida. One of these spas is the location of the February 22 arrest of Bob Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots.
Li is no longer the owner of the spa and was not arrested in the anti-human trafficking sting that led to the arrest of Kraft and others at the spa. A total of ten spas owned by Asians in Florida were shut down as a result of the sting. However, none of these spas are registered to Li.
Li told media sources in Florida she had not broken any laws and that she was no longer involved in the spa business.
The 77-year-old Kraft was arrested and charged with solicitation of prostitution. Law enforcement officials say there is a video of the Patriots owner soliciting sex from a spa worker. Kraft has pleaded not guilty to the crime.
Trump expressed shock at the news of Kraft’s arrest. He also said he was saddened by the situation.
Li had not voted for a decade prior to Donald Trump running for president and did not appear to be engaged politically. However, Li has attended a number of high-profile Republican events recently. One of these events was a White House function for an advisory committee established by the president through an executive order in 2017.
Other photos show Li with Senator Rick Scott, Governor Rick Santis, and the two adult sons of the president, Eric and Donald Jr.
Li has also made contributions to the president’s political efforts. She donated a little more than $42,000 to the political action committee Trump Victory. Li also donated $16,000 to Trump’s presidential campaign.
