Following reports of the Trump Organization reaching an agreement to sell the Trump Hotel in DC for $375 million, CREW President Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“Donald Trump should never have been allowed to keep his DC hotel as president. He should have divested himself of it along with the rest of his businesses before taking office. Instead, he rode out four years of using it for influence peddling and constitutional violations. The Trump Hotel DC stood as a bright neon sign telling foreign countries and moneyed interests how to bribe the president and a stark reminder to Americans that his decisions as president were just as likely to be about his bottom line as about our interests. Selling it now that he’s out of office and the grift dried up is, to say the least, too little, too late.”
