Now the Trump Organization is asking for the federal government to lower their $286,000 per month rental payments. The lease is maintained by the General Services Administration (GSA), the massive federal agency in charge of procurement for the federal government, which has the ultimate say in rent relief. GSA Administrator Emily Murphy, a Trump appointee, has not commented on the matter. Eric Trump told The New York Times they were looking for the same treatment as anyone else.
At the end of the day, the billionaire president’s sons are out there trying to get a break for Donald Trump and themselves, but they have yet to advocate for a rent break for anyone else.
