DC Lets Trump Hotel Keep Its Liquor License

CNN reports:

Washington’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board met on Wednesday to consider a review into whether President Donald Trump has the character to sell alcohol in the nation’s capital. In a terse announcement Wednesday afternoon, the board said its interpretation of local law made them opt not to act at this time, allowing Trump’s DC properties to continue as they are.

Wednesday’s meeting came in response to a June complaint from a group called Make Integrity Great Again, which has seized upon DC regulations to assert Trump is not of “good character” and therefore should not be able to sell alcoholic beverages at the Trump International Hotel, located blocks away from the White House.

According to the board, liquor license objections can only be raised before the license is first issued or when it is due for renewal, which in Trump’s case will be next year.
