The Trump Crime Family couldn’t sell their lease at the start of the Trump-Virus Pandemic, so why not try now?
Former president Donald Trump’s company has again hired a broker to sell the lease to its D.C. hotel, according to two people familiar with the discussions, a second attempt to unload the property after the pandemic thwarted a previous effort.… The hotel, which Trump’s company leases from the General Services Administration, has suffered financially from both the toll COVID has taken on luxury travel and the damage Trump’s brand has endured due to his politics, with many liberal, corporate, and international clients unwilling to book rooms or events at the hotel.
Last we heard the money was not rolling in as foreign dignitaries stopped paying their respect to Hair Füror:
Rooms were running nearly half empty at the hotel the last time the company put it up for sale, according to marketing documents acquired by The Washington Post. Last year revenue at the property fell by 62%, according to Trump’s government disclosure forms.
“Why wouldn’t I stay at his hotel blocks from the White House, so I can tell the new president, ‘I love your new hotel!’ Isn’t it rude to come to his city and say, ‘I am staying at your competitor?’”
Odd, that. The mango-hued shitgibbon is out of power (and outta luck what with all sorts of expensive law suits running him to ground) and so bribes from foreign dignitaries and lobbyists can be spent elsewhere. Never try to convince me that this hotel was not emoluments central.
