( – Next month, regulators in New Jersey are going to hold a hearing to determine if former President Donald Trump’s golf courses should be allowed to have their liquor licenses renewed following the recent New York conviction of the former President.

On Sunday, the licenses held by Trump’s golf courses in Bedminster and Colts Neck had expired. On Friday, the state Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control stated that the licenses would not be renewed, but that a 90-day temporary permit would be put in place to allow the locations to continue serving alcohol until the July 19 hearing on the licenses in Trenton. The hearing is set to take place eight days after the sentencing hearing for the former President in New York. 

Last month, Trump was found to be guilty by a 12-person jury on charges relating to falsifying business records in an attempt to hide a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels by his former attorney Michael Cohen. Trump has maintained that the case against him is part of a political witch hunt and that he has committed no wrongdoing. 

The state Attorney General’s office pointed out that during that hearing it is up to the applicant to bear the proof of burden to show that they continue to be qualified to have their licensure. This would include a review of all the beneficiaries of any given license. 

Pine Hill, a third golf course owned by Trump has already had its license renewed by the municipality.
