Smith Transportation, the company that contracted to transport President Donald Trump’s family to Mar-a-Lago during the presidential campaign, has been shut down, The Hill has learned.
The company, which employs more than 1,000 people, was not authorized to handle the President’s family.
Smith Transportation was in the news after it was revealed that its executives and employees had sent a text to staffers in the campaign saying they would “lose all my job” if Trump did not endorse them on a “contractual basis.”
Smith Transportation has denied all allegations against the company and has been in the spotlight for the past few months as the company has been facing criticism for its actions and mismanagement of the President and his family.
The Hill previously reported that a former employee told a federal investigator that she had “sexual contact” with Smith Transportation employees during a meeting at Trump Tower in June.
Smith Transport has been accused of hiring non-Trump campaign staff to work at the White House and was the subject of a criminal investigation by the FBI.
Smith has denied any wrongdoing.
