WASHINGTON, March 23 The luxury Trump
International Hotel in Washington does not violate federal
conflict-of-interest rules that bar elected officials from
taking part in a lease of federal property, the U.S. General
Services Administration said on Thursday.
Critics had charged that the hotel housed in a former post
office building constituted a conflict of interest for President
Donald Trump. But the GSA, the federal government's property
management arm, said in a letter made public that the issue had
been resolved with the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., taking
over as head of the company that runs it.
