But we know this already. So the new D.C. hotel he loves so much he should get a room in the hotel with the hotel, that’s leased to him by the government. So while we were focusing on the inherent conflict of interest that being his own landlord becomes, we and he missed the real detail: The lease had already been crafted to preclude a conflict because it forbids any elected official from profiting from the lease.
The Post Office Lease differs from many of Mr. Trump’s other business arrangements. That’s because, in writing the contract, the federal and D.C. governments determined, in advance, that elected officials could play no role in this lease arrangement. The contract language is clear: “No … elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom…”
So what will be done about that? Democrats should pound him on the breach of the lease until he has to sell it.
Let that be the first blow in an unending four year (if he lasts that long) avalanche of blows so that Trump and his family regret running for president as the worst thing that ever happened to them. It should ruin them. It should leave them ruing the days the celebrated this, broken and destroyed. They are horrible people. The loathing they will endure should be epic and insuperable.
