Two Senate Democrats wrote a letter to President Trump, urging him to take four steps to "dispel any notion that Mar-a-Lago is a private refuge for pay-to-play politics," according to reports.

Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and Tom Udall, D-N.M., sent the letter Friday, asking, Trump divulge, among other things, the private club's membership list so the country can see which well-heeled members of society get access to the president at his "Winter White House."

The senators' full request:

  • "Make public the Mar-a-Lago membership list." 
  • "Make public the names of members and other visitors to Mar-a-Lago who are there when you are in residence."
  • "Explain what you are doing to screen Mar-a-Lago members to ensure none present security risks to you."
  • "Explain what you are doing to screen Mar-a-Lago members to determine whether any have ties to foreign governments or other entities that seek to influence you or United States policy."

The membership fee reportedly doubled to $200K after Trump became president.

"Instead of draining the swamp, it appears you're bringing Washington right to the swamps at Mar-a-Lago," the senators wrote.

Trump is scheduled to spend the weekend at the club in Palm Beach, Fla., his first trip there as president.
