Democrats Want Trump's Name Removed from DC Hotel

In a letter to the Department of Interior and General Services Administration (GSA), Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) and Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) wrote, "Trump's recent and repeated remarks disparaging women, Mexican-Americans, and other Latinos are hateful, divisive and completely inaccurate. "We understand that the Department of Interior rightly prohibits the display of racist or insensitive emblems on lands it controls. In accordance with this policy and in keeping with the Department's recent efforts to bar the Washington Redskins' logo on public lands, we urge you to use all available authorities under current law to prevent the Trump name from being prominently displayed at the new hotel."

A spokesperson for the Interior referred inquiries to GSA, which is leasing the property to Trump. Last month, celebrity chef José Andrés announced last month he would back out of a Spanish restaurant project in the hotel, over Trump's controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants, prompting Trump to retaliate with a $10 million lawsuit for damages.
