New Jersey Alcoholic Beverage Control reviewing liquor licenses held by Trump

The New Jersey Attorney General's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) is reviewing liquor licenses at properties owned by former President Donald Trump.

The review concerns whether Trump's recent felony conviction violates a state law clause restricting licenses based on criminal history.

The ABC stated it is assessing the impact of Trump's conviction on the liquor licenses but declined further comment.

Trump was found guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records in a New York City court on May 30.

New Jersey law prohibits issuing licenses to individuals convicted of crimes involving moral turpitude.

The implicated properties are Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck, Trump National Golf Club Pine Hill, and Lamington Farm Club.

Former New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal attempted to revoke the liquor license of Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck in 2019 after a fatal car accident involving an intoxicated driver who left the club.

The 2019 case resulted in the club paying around $400,000 to the ABC and limiting alcohol availability to specific areas on the premises.
