Trump's hotel has been the subject of controversy, with many questioning whether Trump being president violates the terms of his lease on the building.

Trump rents the property from the General Services Administration, the agency that essentially acts as the federal government's landlord, though a federal agency ruled that he was not in violation of the lease.

The hotel has also become a go-to location for foreign leaders and dignitaries since it opened last fall, when Trump was still a presidential candidate.
