New Jersey wants to revoke Trump golf club's liquor license

Case triggered by fatal car crash involving Trump resort customer

New Jersey is seeking to revoke the liquor license for one of "President" Donald Trump's golf clubs, after a customer of that Trump resort killed his own father in a 2015 car crash.

The Trump club allegedly over-served alcohol to that customer, who was later held responsible for causing a fatal car wreck.

"Could have a devastating economic impact on all Trump's NJ clubs, including Bedminster," notes David Fahrenthold, who scooped the news for Washington Post:

That proposed punishment was laid out in an Oct. 21 letter to the Trump golf course in Colts Neck, N.J. The Washington Post obtained the letter through a public-records request.

The office of New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, which sent the letter, declined to comment about the letter. Grewal was appointed in 2018 by Gov. Phil Murphy (D).

The letter gives few details about the alleged misconduct by Trump's course. The man that the club is accused of over-serving — Andrew G. Halder — caused a wreck that killed his own father and last year pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide.
