New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control Reviews Liquor Licenses Held by Trump Golf Courses

“ABC is examining the impact of President Trump’s conviction,” the agency said.

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Division is currently reviewing liquor licenses held by former President Donald Trump’s golf courses in the state following his criminal conviction in New York , confirmed the agency.

Trump holds three active licenses for Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck, Lamington Farm Club and Trump National Golf Club Pine Hill.

“ABC is reviewing the impact of President Trump’s conviction on the above-mentioned licenses and is declining further comment at this time,” an agency spokesperson said in an email.

Issuing a liquor license “to any person who has been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude” is against New Jersey law. Applicants for a liquor license must have a good reputation and should operate the licensed business in a reputable manner, giving the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division discretion to consider Trump’s criminal history.

A jury found Trump guilty last month of 34 counts of falsifying business records related to a 2016 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress, to improve his electoral chances in the presidential election of 2016.

This is the first time in history that a former US president has been convicted of criminal charges.

Trump continued to maintain his innocence as he left the courtroom last month, saying: “We didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a very innocent man, it doesn’t matter,” he said. declared, adding: “I’m fighting for our country, I’m fighting for our constitution. Our whole country is being rigged right now.

Trump is expected to appeal after his conviction in July.
