The Trump Organization is reportedly looking into selling the lease rights to its Washington, D.C., hotel, which has been scrutinized over whether President Trump is profiting off of the presidency.
Eric Trump, the presidents son and executive vice president of the Trump Organization, told the Wall Street Journal the company has tasked JLL, a commercial real estate firm, with marketing the Trump International Hotel, which opened in 2016 and is located down the road from the White House in the Old Post Office.
Since we opened our doors, we have received tremendous interest in this hotel and as real estate developers, we are always willing to explore our options, Eric Trump said in a statement.
The Trump Organizations ownership of the hotel has prompted ethics questions and numerous lawsuits as to whether the president, who still has a financial interest in the company, is flouting the Constitution.

They won the emoluments court case.
If he keeps it, he’s guilty.
If he sells it, it proves he knows he’s guilty.
Impeach either way.
Is it just me, but does that Headline bear no resemblance to the comment made by Eric Trump?
Sounds like a purely profitable Financial situation to me.
Off with his head.
Sell it to Russians.
The case was revived.
The case was revived.
Did Trump grab another vagina?
Peach fo’ty fi.
Seems the Examiner has taken more of an interest in negative President Trump stories.
Perhaps, it’s my imagination.
Isn’t it obvious to everyone that Trump only wanted to become President so he could ensure his DC hotel was fully booked at all times? Very shrewd, out of the box thinking, this is why Trump stays on top in the Hotel business.
I wouldn’t give them the satisfaction of claiming they drove him out of there.
This really _ me off!
I highly doubt the ethics complaints have anything to do with it. Right now the value of the D.C. property has never been higher and probably will never be higher, and it makes good business sense to sell at the high point when you will make the most money rather than wait and risk the chance that the value falls. It's business, nothing more and nothing less.
More Bush bot DC BS from the Wash Examiner .
This Dc Globalist rag lies .
They lease it from the GSA. I doubt they'd allow sale to a foreign entity.
You are right .
This is a Rhino Rag for the Romney crowd .
Owned by Globalist Bush bots .
Didn’t Trump set up a blind trust like all other previous Presidents? Someone else runs it, his hand is off the tiller, and when he leaves, after his second term, he can go back to normal Trump Life. Screw them - don’t sell anything! They will accuse him of “profiting” anyway, so he is “wrong” either way!
