Trump Hotels unveils lower-budget American Idea chain

Donald Trump Jr. said Monday the new chain will start with three hotels in Mississippi.

The company also says the first of dozens of hotels in another new Trump chain called Scion is under construction in MS, too.

The Trump Organization is launching a new mid-market hotel chain called "American Ideas".

The Trump name will not be displayed anywhere in the hotels, the Times noted. "And we just saw there, there was a void missing. People that were so excited about the prospect of this country and Americana in general". "We look at it as nearly flea market-chic".

The Trump Organization is now under the leadership of President Trump's eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric, but the President's lasting financial ties continue to raise ethics questions about potential conflicts of interest. In a statement Monday, he predicted an expansion of the new hotel chain serving "many more guests, owners and markets across the nation".

The three American Idea hotels will also be in the Delta, one each in Cleveland, Clarksdale and Greenville. Chawla expects the properties to be ready in six to seven months. The Scion, which is under construction, is a $20 million project financed by $5 million from Guaranty Bank, Dinesh Chawla said.

"Trump Hotels is recognized for unparalleled service, meticulous attention to detail and iconic properties in world-class destinations", said Trump Hotels CEO Eric Danziger.

Many more deals are on the way.

Danziger said the idea is not political, and the hotels will be located in all corners of the country, including states and cities that voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in last fall's election. The owner is now president of the United States.

"It is about hometown America", said Danziger.

Whether the hotels will trade on Trump's power and popularity remains to be seen.

President Trump handed control of his business to his adult sons when he took office, but he never sold his ownership stake - he only placed it in a temporary trust. They said they didn't support Mr. Trump during the campaign but admire his approach to business and the brands he has created.

Dinesh Chawla described himself as a social liberal and said he would like the Mississippi Scion to become a stop for tourists on the Mississippi Blues Trail and visitors to the Grammy Museum Mississippi, which opened recently nearby.

He said he has stayed at Trump hotels before and "we want to bring some of that polish to our developments too".

"There may be people who want do business with them because they are the president's sons". "I dont think that is allowed", he said. "I do believe in legal immigration".
