“As Donald Trump takes time off with 13 days left in the campaign to promote his new hotel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, he will be greeted by angry protesters,” said super political action committee For Our Future’s Ryan Rudominer in a statement to Secrets.

The trio of groups are also unveiling a new ad featuring a longtime employee of Trump International Hotel Las Vegas who said she was denied short term disability by the firm after being injured cleaning a room.

Trump is participating in the official ribbon cutting opening the hotel in the renovated Old Post Office Building in downtown Washington. The hotel has been open for a month or so already.

Several protest permits have been approved and some officials expect hundreds to try to disrupt the grand opening ceremony.
