Sever Trump's DC Hotel Lease
Sever the rental agreement with the Trump Organization for the Old Post Office Pavilion in Washington, D.C., and revoke its tenancy immediately, before the terms of the lease prohibiting conflicts of interest are violated by Donald Trump's inauguration.
Why is this important?
In 2013, Donald Trump's organization negotiated a 60-year lease with the Government Services Administration for Washington, D.C.'s historic Old Post Office Pavilion to turn it into a luxury hotel.
Its lease with the Trump Organization reads, "No member or delegate to Congress, or elected official of the Government of the United States or the Government of the District of Columbia, shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease or to any benefit that may arise therefrom."
Trump tweeted that that he would leave his businesses ‘in total.’ But vague statements on Twitter–where he has lied and misled the public countless times in the past–are not action. Until he fully liquidates his personal assets or creates a true blind trust, his conflicts will remain.
In this specific situation, if Donald Trump does not fully divest from his business holdings before taking office, he will be in direct violation of the lease agreement with the General Services .
Tell the the Government Services Administration to cancel the lease and avoid this conflict.
The Government Services Administration has managed the U.S. federal government's procurement, technological needs, and real estate holdings for the last 67 years. Its stated priorities guaranty the American people that all of its activities from the "biggest purchases to [its] most routine leases, are carried out with integrity and at the highest level of performance."
