The Washington Post reports:
Former president Donald Trump’s son Eric, who runs the family’s private company, touted the potential of transforming their Doral golf resort into a gambling destination amid a quiet push among Florida Republicans to legalize casinos in areas of the state that have long opposed them.
Although Republican legislative leaders have not yet submitted a bill, word of a proposal has spread widely enough that both supporters and opponents already are gearing up for a fight that they say could be more intense than in previous years due to Trump’s potential interest and his close relationship with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).
Read the full article. Florida currently limits gambling to tribal-owned casinos. But hey, the Trumps have a glorious track record in that business.
NEW: Eric Trump explored transforming the Trump Doral resort into a gambling destination during a quiet push to legalize casinos in areas of the state that have opposed them.
