Customer Sues Trump National Resort After Bedbug-Infested Room Leaves His Body Covered in Sores

Election '16

Donald Trump only builds the classiest hotels, resorts and casinos—but you’d still better watch out for bed bug infestations if you stay at one of them.


PalmBeachPost.com reports that New Jersey man Eric Linder has filed a lawsuit against the Trump National Doral Miami luxury resort because he was allegedly bitten by bed bugs while staying there this past March.

Linder says that this wasn’t just a bite or two, either—he claims that the bed bugs left welts and lumps all over his face, neck, arms and torso.

Linder also alleges that the building had a history of bed bug infestations dating back to at least two months before his stay, and he claims that the people running the resort knew this and still kept setting people up with “unsuitable” rooms.

Linder is asking for at least $15,000 in damages.
