Donald Trump won’t be inaugurated for another 7 weeks, but we already see a scandal brewing in his administration.

This is a deal made before Trump was even running for President, which allowed the Trump organization to renovate the building, and launch it as the Trump International Hotel. The hotel sits just a few blocks from the White House.

Even though he plans to let his children run the Trump Organization while he is President, Donald Trump has announced no plans to sell off his ownership of the organization. That’s important, because that means he will continue to profit from the organization’s business dealings, including those of the Hotel.

That Trump will profit from the Hotel next year matters because of the terms of his lease, according to Steven Schooner and Daniel Gordon at Trump set to breach his D.C. lease with the Federal Government appeared first on RedState.
