Trump hotel fails coronavirus hygiene testing as Dr. Fauci warns of 100,000 cases a day – By Roger Sollenberger (Salon) / July 1 2020
Trump International Hotel was one of three Manhattan hotels — including Hampton Inn Times Square and the Hyatt Place Times Square, owned by the family of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat — to get caught in an undercover sting that revealed rooms had not been properly cleaned during the coronavirus pandemic, a new report reveals.
The hidden tests were conducted by long-running TV news-magazine “Inside Edition,” which the Pew Research Center has labeled “pseudo news” and where President Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump worked as a producer from 2012 to 2016.
For the sting, an “Inside Edition correspondent would check into a room, then print the program’s logo on bed sheets, pillow cases and towels using a washable spray that can only be seen under ultraviolet light.
The correspondent would also use an invisible gel to handprint other surfaces, as well as devices such as thermostats and remote controls.
