In a story that seemingly couldn't get more cringeworthy for the National Football League, a freaky connection surfaced Friday linking President Donald Trump to the founder of the Orchids of Asia Day Spa, the establishment at the center of prostitution charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
The businesswoman-turned-political activist founded and operated the chain of Tokyo Day Spas in 2007 - including one in Jupiter that was later renamed Orchids of Asia, and sold by Yang to Hua Zhang around 2013.
Yang, 45, owns a string of day spas in south Florida, an area where human trafficking has run rampant of recent, according to a Miami Herald report siting crackdowns on spas in at least three counties. Through attorneys, the billionaire Kraft maintains he did not break the law. All indications are she's had no involvement with Orchids of Asia Day Spa since the 2013 sale, instead pursuing a new life that reportedly includes an investment consulting business, a travel agency and a charity.
The White House and Yang did not immediately respond when contacted by Newsweek to ask about the relationship between the spa owner and the president.

The newspaper reported that Yang had not voted in 10 years before 2016 but she has become a fixture at Republican political events on the East Coast. "But I'm very surprised to see it". That's where she watched Kraft's Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams a month ago - and where she snapped one of several photos with Trump and his family on several different days, the Herald has learned.
