Donald Trump’s real estate empire may soon include the FBI’s headquarters in Washington D.C., the Washington Post reports.
Trump said he’s considering bidding on the J. Edgar Hoover Building for redevelopment. He already owns the building across the street, the Old Post Office Pavilion.
The FBI has been looking for developers and investors to acquire the hulking building in exchange for a newly built FBI headquarters in the region.
Trump said he’ll decide soon whether to bid.
“We’ll be watching the FBI as to what’s going to happen,” Trump told the Washington Post. “Whether or not we will bid on it, we may, we may not. Now if we do as good a job as we will do with [the Old Post Office], people may ask us about it.”
