A liberal activist group is going after Trump Hotel’s liquor license in Washington, D.C.
Bizpacreview.com reported that the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., is at risk of losing its liquor license due to a complaint filed by a group of citizens claiming owner Donald Trump does not meet the requisite “good character” clause in the local statute.
The pertinent D.C. law states that liquor license applicants must be of “good character and generally fit for the responsibilities of licensure.” The group in its complaint stated, “Donald Trump, the true and actual owner of the Trump International Hotel, is not a person of good character.”
The complaint cited “certain lies he has told, his involvement in relevant fraudulent and other activity demonstrating his lack of integrity, and his refusal to abide by the law or to stop associating with known criminals.”
The effort to revoke the hotel’s liquor license has been ongoing for nearly a year now. It started 9 months ago, and you will see in the video below.
Washington’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board opened the door this week to hearing a challenge to President Donald Trump’s liquor license at his Washington hotel over claims that he doesn’t meet the city’s “good character” requirements.
The board on Wednesday issued an order denying the Trump International Hotel’s motion to dismiss a “protest” from a group consisting of an attorney, two former judges and a handful of religious leaders who assert that Trump is not of “good character” and therefore should not be able to sell alcoholic beverages in Washington.
The group is citing a DC regulation that says a liquor license owner must be “of good character and generally fit for the responsibilities of licensure.” Trump, they say, remains an owner of the hotel, though he has handed over day to day management to his sons while in office.
Hoping for a round two this year, the group submitted another request using many of the same examples it did in 2018 to assert that the President is not of “good character” and therefore should not hold a liquor license.
In the documents, the group wrote that it is “focusing on certain lies (Trump) has told, his involvement in relevant fraudulent and other activity demonstrating his lack of integrity, and his refusal to abide by the law or to stop associating with known criminals.”
