economic pain at Trump’s company

A good reminder to all Americans.  Anything Trump touches, fails. 

 

Interviews with current and former Trump Organization employees and tenants, and emails obtained by The Washington Post, show the pandemic in particular has rattled operations at the company. With thousands of Trump’s hotel rooms empty, the company laid off or furloughed more than 2,800 employees and scoured for even the smallest savings. It eliminated flowers, chocolates and newspapers at its New York hotel and turned off lights in common areas in its Chicago hotel to save on electricity, according to letters that hotel management sent to investors.

“This was not just a step down,” Eric Danziger, the chief executive of Trump Hotels, told board members of Trump’s Chicago hotel on April 22, according to an account of his phone call obtained by The Post. “This was a steep dive.”

Just another reality, from pre-potus bs: "The crumbling casino and hotel of Trump Plaza in Atlantic City is getting torn down after sitting v... .

 

  • "The building, which was constructed and owned by Donald Trump before his presidency..."
  • "But by 1992 the hotel and casino filed for bankruptcy." (a known Donald Trump fallback)

From the article:

 

"At the D.C. hotel, the patio seating plan was scheduled to restart again Friday. A previous attempt for outdoor tables earlier in Trump’s presidency ended after pedestrians regularly insulted hotel guests and staff, former employees said."

 

I don't expect that to change.
