(MENAFN – Gulf Times) Donald Trump is reportedly on the verge of selling the rights to his hotel near the White House in Washington, gold branding from Pennsylvania Avenue ”.
However, reports from Iowa indicated that the former president is on the verge of announcing an attempt to return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, often dubbed the most powerful address in the world, with a candidacy for the Republican nomination in 2024.
According to the Des Moines Register, Congressman Jim Jordan, a close ally of Trump, told Republicans at a dinner Thursday in Dallas County, Iowa, “I think he will run. I want it to run. He has proven that he can withstand the heat. “
Jordan got hot himself after a liberal activist secretly recorded that he was clearer about Trump’s plans and told attendees, “President Trump, he will run again.”
Jordan denied the comment before the footage was released.
Another person close to Trump, his former advisor Jason Miller, told Cheddar TV that the chances of another run were “somewhere between 99% and 100%”. I think it will definitely run in 2024. “
Covering the news on Saturday, Axios said the Trump Hotel was in “advanced talks” to sell the rights to the business in the old post office that Trump leased from the US government in 2013, first presidential candidacy two years before he announced his contract.
Trump did not comment.
The hotel opened in September 2016, two months before Trump defeated Hillary Clinton for the White House.
When Trump was in power, the hotel became a hub for government business and lobbying, making it a magnet for controversy.
Trump businesses, including hotel and golf resorts, have been hit hard by both the coronavirus pandemic and Trump’s election defeat.
The Washington Post reported “imploding tenants, political backlash, and a wider, pandemic-induced slump in Manhattan office rentals” that affected Trump Tower in New York City.
The Washington hotel “used to be the center of Trump World, but I can’t imagine who is going now,” Sally Quinn, an influential Washington writer and journalist, told the Guardian to stay there in March if they come. I don’t know anyone who goes or has gone there. “
Attempts to sell the hotel have been reported since 2019.
Quinn said, “I suspect anyone who buys it will take off all of the gold pieces and all of the trimmings and turn it into something very un-Trump-like.”
Biden had been up in July and early August, but the chaotic scenes from Afghanistan rewrote the narrative.
Trump survived two impeachments, the second for inciting the deadly protests in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, and remains firmly in control of Republican politics and polls.
He continued to raise funds and raise huge sums of money.
Many believe he is considering a second White House campaign to fend off financial troubles and a series of criminal and civil investigations.
He has ditched any notion of post-presidential decency and loudly criticized his successor Joe Biden for beating him in an election that Trump continues to claim was rigged without evidence.
In the video, secretly recorded in Iowa, Jordan was asked if he really believed Trump was ready to declare another run. “I know,” he said.
