Zach Everson is an American journalist best known for his 1100 Pennsylvania newsletter that reports on Donald Trump’s alleged use of his presidency for personal gain. [1] Previously Everson was a travel and food writer.[2]


Everson has reported about the Trump Organization for publications including Vanity Fair, [3] Politico, [4] Slate,[5] Mother Jones,[6] and Pro Publica and WNYC Studios' Trump, Inc.[7]

As a travel writer, Everson reported on the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C.’s opening for Fox News in October 2016[8] and later for Condé Nast Traveler.[9] That article on the 2018 Lowell Thomas Gold Award for Travel News/Investigative Reporting from the Society of American Travel Writers.[10]

He later quit travel writing to report full-time on the Trump D.C. hotel.[11]

Everson often uses open-source intelligence to identify customers at Trump properties.[8] In Commentary Magazine, journalist Matthew Continetti complimented Everson's tracking of Trump's possible conflicts, but suggested Everson was playing to liberal biases. [12]

As of February 2020, Everson had spotted more than 24 Trump cabinet members at the hotel and 32 of the 53 Republicans serving in the Senate.[13] And he spotted representatives of at least 33 foreign countries through October 2010.[14]
