Trump's D.C. Hotel Is Being Sued For $2M

One of President Donald Trump's properties is being sued for $2 million, according to a report by Politico

The suit was filed by Freestate Electrical, the contractor that worked on Trump's hotel located in the Old Post Office Building in Washington, D.C.

The suit claims the contractors had to rush to finish electrical and fire alarm systems before a "soft opening," and then again before the grand opening. 

Workers had to put in 10 to 14 hour shifts for nearly 50 consecutive days to prepare for the soft opening. 

The plaintiffs say Trump wanted the hotel work completed ahead of schedule to give his presidential campaign some positive press.

Freestate claims the Trump Organization has offered to pay only one-third of the cost to finish the work on schedule, something the company says is a common practice of the Trump Organization. 

The suit was filed in the D.C. Superior Court.
