Here’s a Christmas miracle for Donald Trump: Rick Caruso has officially lifted the ban on the President-elect at his famed shopping center the Grove.

“You always give people a second chance,” the billionaire told TMZ, when hounded by the gossip site on whether he’d stick to his word, “So I’m hoping that he’s going to be a great president.”

When asked for his thoughts on Trump’s changing rhetoric, Caruso said, “I’m just hopeful for the country.”

“Everybody’s welcome at The Grove,” he added.

Caruso told TMZ in October that he’d consider blacklisting Trump because of his remarks about women. In the same encounter, Caruso rescinded his ban on boxer Manny Pacquiao. [TMZ]Cathaleen Chen
