    Default Trumpís prized Doral resort is in steep decline!

    I can't wait to see the tweet spin!


    Trumpís prized Doral resort is in steep decline, according to company documents, showing his business problems are mounting.

    Late last year, in a Miami conference room, a consultant for President Trumpís company said business at his prized 643-room Doral resort was in sharp decline. At Doral, which Trump has listed in federal disclosures as his biggest moneymaker hotel, room rates, banquets, golf and overall revenue were all down since 2015. In two years, the resortís net operating income ó a key figure, representing the amount left over after expenses are paid ó had fallen by 69 percent.
    Even in a vigorous economy, the property was missing the Trump Organizationís internal business targets; for instance, the club expected to take in $85 million in revenue in 2017 but took in just $75 million.

    They are severely underperformingĒ other resorts in the area, tax consultant Jessica Vachiratevanurak told a Miami-Dade County official in a bid to lower the propertyís tax bill. The reason, she said: ďThere is some negative connotation that is associated with the brand.Ē

    Trump's Scottish golf courses are haemorrhaging money, and have been for several years.

    In 2014 they lost about $2.4 million and things went downhill from there..

    Losses for 2017 were around $4.5 million

    or they're raking in the cash and it's just a continued pattern of tax fraud?

    ....you would get it by building, or even buying. You always wanted to show losses for tax purposes....almost all real estate developers did - and often re-negotiate with banks, it was sport. Additionally, the very old information put out is a highly inaccurate Fake News hit job!

    President Trump is a real Patriot.
    He is willing to lose money in his personal live in order to Make American Great Again.
    Unlike other politicians who are willing to use their position of power to make money for themselves and their families.

    And what money did he lose exactly geng? He's no more a patriot than Bennidict Arnold was. I wish you'd stop watching FOX NEWs and reading infowars. Oh, and turn off Rush Limbag, he's screwing with your head.

    Trump is a patriot? When he was alive my father would have fought anyone saying such a thing in his presence.

    Trump is morally bankrupt with no respect for the Constitution and institutions of democracy. He actively undermines trust in government and it’s agencies as well as a free press in order to have an informed citizenry. Trump is running the gov’t like his businesses. Capitalizing common nouns and parroting slogans conveys no thought on your part.

    https://www.vogue.com/article/no-one...at-trump-tower

    It's lonely at the top. . .of Trump Tower, home to Donald Trump's garish, gilded New York penthouse (and, um, site of the notorious "Trump Tower meeting"). According to a new report by Bloomberg, Trump's presidency has been "brutal" for his signature New York City building, with condos selling at a loss, occupancy rates plunging and large blocs of office space remaining vacant.

    Once a beloved albeit tacky tourist trap for Apprentice fans, now, "No one wants in that building," Michael Sklar, who sold his parents’ 57th floor unit for $1.83 million in October, told Bloomberg.

    Cadet bone spurs is only a symptom of the problem. The trumpistas will not disappear under a rock when we're rid of him. What do we do with them then?

    A friend of mine lives in a part of the country that is seriously red, seriously poor, and seriously drug infested. He tells of the prospect of real violence should Trump not be re elected, or impeached, or forced to resign. He pretends to be a supporter to minimise the risk to himself and family.
    I think that he's being realistic, not dreaming it up.

    I played at Doral back in the day when I worked for one of the big consulting firms and we had an outing there.

    That was the last round of golf I ever played.

    We played the blue course, (the blue monster), long but really boring.

    Now if I was back in Ireland I might give it another try.

    I agree with your possible scenario John. Deliberately encouraged in the knowledge that an opposing political grouping would be reluctant to push the ante lest such a disaster occurred. OTOH an armed response to a democratic or lawful process might be the 'trigger' that's needed for realistic gun control measures.

    Advocating cowardice.

    Bargaining with terrorists.

    The ONLY WAY to beat these morons is to crush DFT and the POS at the polls.

    Crush them into paste.

    Otherwise, the treasonous wretch will spill the blood of thousands.

    How much money did the new tax bill make him & his family? Bold mine:

    In a Nov. 20 interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas — a member of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee — argued that a vote for the tax bill amounts to a vote to give the president a massive windfall.


    "The result in the House (of passing the tax bill) was just a matter of arithmetic and was never much in doubt," Doggett said. "I am pleased that all Democrats and 13 Republicans voted against what I consider to be a real job-killing bill. I'm not surprised President Trump would come (to Capitol Hill to support the bill) because he and his family would walk off with more than a billion dollars personally."

    Let me guess . . . the south?

    Southerners have been muttering darkly ever since the Constitution was proposed. From then to the Civil War to Jim Crow to Trump. It's what they do.

    That's great but once again, what do we do with the trumpistas when we're rid of cadet bone spurs.

    When I awoke the next morning, social media was on fire. The incident had gone from a Facebook post to a tagged tweet to nationally trending news with the whoosh of lighter fluid to a flame.

    The blowback was swift and aggressive. Within 24 hours, the restaurant’s phone line was hacked, my staff and I were doxxed, and threats to our lives, families and property were pouring in through every available channel. Protesters colonized the streets around the restaurant. Thousands of fake Yelp reviews torpedoed our ratings, and dozens of people attempted to lock up our tables with reservations they had no intention of honoring.

    Those people are dangerous. They're psychotic.

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"
