Former President Donald J. Trump informed soldiers they were welcome to stay at Trump Hotel in D.C. free of charge after he heard lawmakers evicted them from the Capitol and forced them to sleep in vacant parking lots, Your Content has learned.

“President Donald J. Trump has given permission for the troops to stay at Trump Hotel DC if any of them need,” an aide of the former president told Your Content. “The hotel will accommodate the troops at no cost.”

The former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also announced the hotel will welcome police officers in the area a place to relax—calling out ‘unbiased’ members of the media for asking ‘zero questions’ about the situation to President Joe Biden’s press secretary.

“Trump DC hotel open for DCPD. Strange the our wonderful & totally unbiased press corps had ZERO questions for pres sec on Nat’l Guard troops being move out of a congressional building into an open cold garage,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr.

“If Trump were pres they would be ‘outraged.’”

Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed with Your Content that members of the National Guard were welcome to stay at President Trump’s D.C. hotel.

As Your Content readers know, politicians from both the Republican and Democratic parties treated U.S. troops ‘worse than a one night stand’ after using them for protection during the inauguration—only to evict them into vacant parking lots shortly thereafter to sleep.

“For the last week my battalion has been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria.” a military source told Benny Johnson.

“Today the Senate kicked us out & moved us to a cold parking garage. 5000 soldiers. 1 power outlet. One bathroom. This is how Joe Biden’s America treats solders.”

He continued: “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressman walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service.

However, the National Guard vehemently denies having knowledge of any invitation by former President Donald Trump allegedly welcoming troops to stay at the hotel, according to PolitiFact.

“The National Guard said it is not aware of any offer by Trump to provide hotel rooms to Guard members when some were temporarily forced to rest in parking garages after providing security at the U.S. Capitol.” PolitiFact reports.

“No Guard members stayed at the Trump hotel, according to the Guard.”

An unnamed National Guard spokesperson also told PolitiFact there were no guard members who stayed at the Trump Hotel.

  1. God bless Trump, he is my President and he won and is still President, Biden, is not legal and he and the rest of the Communist Democrats are proving everyday just how evil they are and how much they hate America and the American People. And prove they cannot even hold a candel to Trump.

  2. I figure Trump would be more decent to the troops. God bless you Trump. Still my president… god will judge the rest..Forget Pelosi, she has been judged. KARMA GONNA GO FOR THE SELFISH…!! Nancy, Chuck..how can you sleep at night?

  3. Oh God you people are delusional.First place this would not have happened if the previous tenant of the White House had not instigated and insurrection at the Capitol and going with instructions to hang and kill fellow Americans including Mike Pence.The rest of the world put up with him for four years now you put up with the new President for 4 and if you can bring him back fairly than do so.

      • Seriously, get a grip on reality. Every branch of the govt found no evidence of cheating but you people are so hard pressed to keep garbage.

    • Did u actually watch his whole speech??? He didnt incite a riot. YOURE DELUSIONAL!!! Dont blame Trump bc Bye Duhhhhn & the human yeast infection Pelosi didnt give National Guard members a place to sleep except a cold parking garage. They both are disgraceful!!! You keep wanting to blame Trump even after hes out of office? Well buckle up buttercup, bc half the country for the next 4 years are gonna give Biden & his administration Hell. Deal with it

  4. Biden hates the military. The Oval Office has the American flag, and flags of each of the 4 branches of our military. He had the military flags removed. Pathetic.

    • Trump put those military flags there. No previous president had all those flags there. Eisenhower had an army flag displayed because he was a general in the army, but no other military flags!!! EVERY president redecorates the WH. Get you facts straight.
