Steven M. Ryan & James W. Kim, Counsel for BP-Metropolitan Investors, LLC in a Money Quote regarding Donald Trump history of Bankruptcy he failed to disclose in his RFP to GSA on Washington D.C. Hotel project criticized by Hilton Attorneys relative to competitive bid for the old D.C. post office project. Steven M. Ryan & James W. Kim, Counsel for BP-Metropolitan Investors, LLC said:
“The record of Trump bankruptcies by all accounts we have reviewed indicates that Trump is an unreliable business partner. Trump has a different posture at bid and award press conferences and unfavorable history revealed in bankruptcy and court proceedings that emerge as the project fails. The record reveals that Trump projects often fail, and fail publicly. In those instances of failure, Trump has often walked away” — Steven M. Ryan & James W. Kim
