Trump hotel bar where White House staffers drink may lose its liquor license because of the owner’s ‘bad character’

Staffers in the Trump White House largely find themselves estranged from the Washington, D.C. social scene.

Residents of the District of Columbia filed a complaint challenging President Donald Trump’s liquor license based on his “bad character,” reports Huffington Post.
