Donald Trump Hopes To Cash In Even More From White House Job
This news is not stunning for those who know what it happening. That many Republicans do not care should further underscore the national concern.
Donald Trump’s company is actively seeking to open a second Washington hotel as part of a planned nationwide expansion, potentially creating another venue where he stands to benefit financially from customers doing business in the nation’s capital. Representatives of the Trump Organization, now run by the Trump’s adult sons, have inquired in recent months about converting one of several boutique, medium-sized hotels in upscale neighborhoods in and near downtown and reopening it under the company’s new Scion brand. Unlike the luxurious Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, which Trump and his family own, the more affordable Scion hotels would be owned by other developers who would pay the Trumps’ company for licensing rights and management. … While some of the inquiries predate the election, the company has continued to look for a Washington partner.
