Former New York Yankees legend Alex Rodriguez is among the Miami-based businessmen who just purchased the Trump Organization's opulent Washington, DC hotel for a whopping $375 million. During Donald Trump's presidency, the Washington DC Hotel became a hotspot for the Republicans and often lured congressmen and lobbyists. The Trump Organization, which is run by ex-president Donald Trump's family, handed over the long-term lease of the Trump International Hotel to CGI Merchant Group of Miami on Wednesday.

"Trump Hotel in DC is no more. End of a mini era in DC history. The sale of the hotel has closed to a new buyer that will turn it into Waldorf Astoria. The hotel is now closed too until turn over to Waldorf is complete." -@Eric Lipton

In 2013, the US government leased the Washington DC Hotel to Trump's real estate company. The Trump Organization then invested $200 million in the structure's renovation.

"Soon-to-be-former Trump Hotel DC when it was U.S. Post Office building, 1907." - Michaeal Beschloss

After the $375 million on Wednesday, the Trump Organization has generated a profit of, at least, $100 million. After the sale of rights, another agreement was reached between the Miami-based investment firm and Hilton Worldwide Holdings to rebrand and manage the Washington DC Hotel as Waldorf Astoria.

"The Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC is now officially out of business after the Trump family on Wednesday completed its sale to a Miami investor group, which plans to reopen it as a Waldorf Astoria," The New York Times reported Wednesday." - @Timothy Turner

According to reports, the new owners promptly erased Trump's name after signing the lease.

"The new owners of the Old Post Office removed Trump’s name immediately." -@Joe Flood
