The president’s maskless appearance at Trump International Hotel this week – in apparent defiance of District of Columbia coronavirus regulations – caught the attention of local authorities, who inspected the hotel on Wednesday to check forcompliance with city rules.

ABC News reported Tuesday that guests at Trump properties have repeatedly flouted face-covering mandates. A Facebook invitation for a birthday party scheduled for Saturday at the District hotel featured a “NO MASKS ALLOWED” disclaimer, the network reported. The invitation did not appear to be visible on the social media site Wednesday.
An inspector from the District Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, which fines businesses with liquor licenses that don’t comply with city regulations, visited the hotel on Wednesday afternoon. Inspectors can only issue fines or warnings for violations that they see in person, and all hotel staff members and visitors during the inspection were wearing masks, ABRA said.
