1. The government put up the lease for bid. They awarded it to Trump

GSA and Trump Organization Reach Deal on Old Post Office Lease
https://www.gsa.gov/about-us/newsroom/news-releases/gsa-and-trump-organization-reach-deal-on-old-post-office-lease

GSA and the Trump Organization have been negotiating for over a year on the terms and conditions of this complex transaction. GSA selected the Trump Organization as the preferred developer after an open and robust competitive process. The Trump Organizationís offer was deemed the most compelling, and it included the strongest development team, provided long term benefits to the local community, and offered the best overall proposal to the federal government.


It happened over 2012-2014 while Obama was President.

8. Do they not even do a basic credit check before signing a lease with him?

JFC they do that for a cheap residential rental.

6. Don't cancel the lease while he is losing money.

An earlier topic said he was losing money on the hotel.

Trying to sell the business but does not own the bldg.

Don't cancel the lease while he is losing money.

It would be interesting to see the anticipated cash flow in their sales pitch.

7. The Old Post Office Pavilion's been a White Elephant for many years,

GSA was, apparently, relieved 'someone' wanted it, and decided 'someone' would/could handle it suitably.
