Trump Hotel Sale Will End an Era: “It was America’s lobby of corruption”

From a New York Times story by Eric Lipton headlined “Checking Out: Trump Hotel Sale Will End an Era”:

It’s last call at the bar of the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

The hotel — which for much of President Donald J. Trump’s four years at the White House served as his dining-out spot, a gathering place for his allies and a bazaar of sorts for those seeking influence and access — is slated to be sold in the coming days to a Florida investor group that will take down the Trump name and rebrand it as a Waldorf Astoria.
