Messenger Post's news partner, News10NBC's Investigative Reporter Jennifer Lewke spoke with owner Bruce Ben-Dov, who says he doesn't the have finances in place at this time or the resources to get the regulatory approval he would need to run the center the way he had hoped.
When News10NBC spoke with Ben-Dov earlier this week, he said he wanted to turn it into a combination of a coffee shop, speakers corner, and a political action center for President Trump and pro-Trump congressional candidates.
Ben-Dov was also asking for thousands of dollars in donations to help kick-start the business and to support President Trump.
