See the Proposal for the Future Trump Presidential Library at the Hotel on Rivington

Posted on: January 24th, 2019 at 5:00 am by

With the Hotel on Rivington now in the hands of the Trump Family, area locals are getting restless.

You’ll recall that crown prince Jared Kushner (via Kushner Companies) purchased the twenty-story glass property at the end of last year for an undisclosed sum in the millions. And the acquisition is already a punchline on the street.

Yesterday morning, 65th Assembly District Committeeman Chris Marte spotted the below letter taped to a building on Suffolk Street (between Delancey and Rivington), which is clearly a topical gag. A fake presidential order for the so-called Trump Executive Library and Museum at son-in-law Kushner’s new Rivington Street lodge. Aim of the proposal – “see extensive documentation of the life and presidency of America’s 45th president” and to allow tours of the archives containing “his memorabilia.”

Such items include:

  • Tax returns from 1990 to 2017
  • Plans of the Trump World Tower project in Moscow
  • The Billy Bush “pussy video”
  • Diplomas from Trump University
  • The infamous pee-stained bed sheets from the Moscow hotel

A gift shop is also promised for purchasing, among other items, Donald Trump’s secret hairspray and urine-proof rubber bed sheets.

Meanwhile, we hear that workers throughout the various venues inside the Hotel on Rivington are worried about the forthcoming renovations and whether their employment will be affected.
