The historic Old Post Office Tower maintained by the National Park Service in the center of Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. will reportedly reopen during the government shutdown.
The arrangement raises the appearance of special federal treatment for a private business owned by President Donald Trump.
The National Park Service is one of the agencies that's not funded during the partial shutdown. Once funding was cut off, access to the clock tower at the top of the landmark -- as well as exhibits the inside -- were closed to the public, including to guests of Trump's hotel.
