Staff members at the Trump Organization's hotel in Panama have been evicted from their offices amid a dispute between the Trumps and a businessman who recently purchased a majority stake in the property, per AP. The Trump sign at the hotel was also taken down.

The backdrop...

  • The new owner, Orestes Fintiklis, wants the Trumps out. "And the Trumps, who have a long-term contract to manage the property, are refusing to go," reports the N.Y. Times.
  • "Fintiklis likened the Trumps to leeches who had attached to the property, 'draining our last drops of blood,' [in a letter to other owners] ... He has also filed legal actions accusing the Trump family business, the Trump Organization, of mismanaging the hotel."
