Dear Donald,

To welcome you and ease your transition to D.C., I'm writing again. I've already introduced you to your councilmember. Now let's talk about your new hotel, just blocks from the White House.

It's really something! And, despite a damning reviews, so popular! At least among a certain crowd.

Diplomats the world over are eager -- certainly not pressured -- to throw money your way.

"Why wouldn't I stay at his hotel?" a diplomat from Asia asked the Washington Post. "Isn't it rude to come to his city and say, 'I'm staying at your competitor?'"

"Believe me, all the delegations will go there," explained a diplomat from the Middle East.

I know, I know, you're not at all surprised by the success. Like you said, "occupancy at that hotel will be probably a more valuable asset now than it was before [the election]."

Of course with the big bucks rolling in, there's bound to be a few haters.
