Trump’s youngest daughter, Mallory, tweeted Saturday that “no one wants” to pay the price for the planned $1.6 billion renovation of the historic Hotel Indigo.
“We’re so confident, Malloy, we’re so ready,” Ivanka Trump wrote.
“And I can promise you this, we will not let this happen!”
Trump, who is also his oldest son-in-law, was also joined in the criticism by former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.
“They are putting us at a huge disadvantage because of the people who don’t want to pay, and that’s not the way it works,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“It’s a big problem.”
The hotel, located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Kentucky Avenue, was named for an 1819 British merchant ship that arrived in Indianapolis.
The hotel is currently used as the headquarters for the Trump Organization and the Trump National Golf Club.
It was also named after former president Andrew Jackson, who served in the early 1800s as a governor.
The hotel will be located on the former site of the former Hilton Indianapolis.
It’s owned by a consortium of hoteliers, which includes the Hilton Indianapolis Group, which owns the Hilton Cincinnati hotel and casino.
