If you notice, "Byrd" did not include the full article he excerpted from. It's his pattern. See his Mar-a-lago threads.

I heard today that the President is taking along a whole host of business owners, executives, and their attorneys.. because there will be lots of business and manufacturing deals signed that will benefit American Workers.

President Trump is already well-traveled. He's not taking his first international Presidential trip in order to see these places for the first time, and meet some foreigners, like Obama did. THIS President is going over there with "Americans First" as his #1 Priority.

We are buddy buddy with Russia now because the past two administrations and Trump are slowly moving our political system in the direction of Marxism, socialism, and then eventually communism. Russia will be our ally as we walk toward world domination together.

This time he's not staying at a Trump owned property


If he were to stay at a "Trump owned property" you would complain.


Yes I would, because the money goes to line his pockets. I don't mind him staying at other hotels... but why in the name of gravy does he have to have 1000 people with him. To keep him in line?

Is he supposed to sleep in a tent at a campground?

As far as his son being paid to speak, I find that irrelevant to the presidency.

I think some are looking for reasons to bitch and it shows.

That's because it violates ATS site rules on how much you can copy and paste. I stick to the first paragraph as a rule and assume others will click to read the rest of the article since I pick short ones.

Forget everything else - this is an impeachable offence. I have 3 sources confirm to me that his entourage is under investigation for having 3 Russian sleeper agents within its ranks. These unnamed sources are government officials.






I knew it, the entourage was cover for the three Russians. Good work DM.

I just saw live footage of him in the Kingdom of Saudi. The red carpet walk on the tarmac.His first trip to a foreign country is to Saudi Arabia, whom the uS is currently closing a hundreds of billions of dollars US arms deal with. Reminded me of Return of the Jedi, when Vader walked the same red carpet with a fully cloaked "Arab looking" emperor.

I find it pathetic that there is so much energy spent on the questions "who voted for the bigger asshole"...

That's pretty normal, a lot of staff go with the President.

The numbers swell pretty fast. There's the group doing security, the group flying ahead, I think the President always gets a small military component too, the press corps is over 100 people, the various people involved in deals, the assistants for those people, their security, pilots, backup pilots, the Presidents assistants, and more. 1000 is slightly above the norm, but not by much.

There's a lot of support infrastructure that goes to wherever the President is.

Previous presidents have had entourages abroad (even to sensitive areas) with 300 in attendance. - including politicians and security. One thousand is an unusual number. I'm wondering what they're all there for and why he couldn't do it with less.

...particularly after seeing some of the oddball expenses in the campaign finances that he turned in.

Note that those (as per ATS rules) were just the headlines of the pieces that I copied and that what I did was to present the news story (quotes) with minimal commentary on my own. Sources cited were linked.

This is standard (or used to be) for ATS reporting on an issue, to prevent titles such as "Mad Dog Trump Howls and Froths at Miley Cyrus' Dress" or some such.


PER ATS RULES: Headline of the thread MUST be the same as the news source you report on. You can quote up to 750 words - BUT NO MORE and then discuss (which may be brief but has to be more than two sentences. Click on "breaking news" and then try to start a thread. The standards we developed are there.

It seems you missed Xcathra's response to you on the first page. He/she posted 3 links to show the size of Obama's entourage. Looking at those links will show that this is not out of the norm. Obama had over 1000 accompany him to Vietnam. Can you please provide citiation for 300 being the norm?

riight.. again next time it might be beneficial to research before trying to attack something that is standard procedure. What you did was quote a certain portion in order to paint a false narrative of Trump and then attacked Trump for it.

Can I assume there are a lot of threads / posts, by you, taking Obama to task for the exact same thing? Or should I assume you just dont like Trump and will selectively edit articles in order to fit your agenda?

Let me know...

No 1000 is NOT an unusual number, as I pointed out with links to Obamas travel where he had that many. Please stop with the denial and your effort to attack Trump for something that is standard practice.

Maybe next time just create your own thread title. That way those of us interested in facts can just skip it.

Seriously, the point of this thread is slander.

Why are you complaining about a 1000 person entourage? To be honest. I thought it was WAY MORE and AT THE MINIMUM, but 1000?

Given the assualt by the liberal media on our democratically elect President of the United States, their sedition is more then enough to justify any amount of people the President wants.

As was posted by someone else earlier, it seems that a domestic trip might be 300 to 500 , with overseas trips being 700 or more. When President Obama visited Vietnam last year, he had 1000+ with him.

So I think it dopes make a difference where the President is going, and how many stops he makes. I can understand how a trip to Israel and Saudi Arabia would be at the high end of the spectrum, entourage-wise -- similar to President Obama's visit to Vietnam (which was coincidentally exactly one year ago next week).

So the number may be unusual, but it isn't unprecedented, and it seems the sensitivity of the trip might matter, as it did in the past with other presidential trips.

No, not kidding. Reported in a number of sources including foreign sources. Note the date - over two weeks ago

Trump’s 1,000-strong entourage for Israel trip
May 6, 2017 at 11:22 am


This time he's not staying at a Trump owned property -- I expect that his next international gaffe will be about how much better his hotels are.

Or one of his next gaffes. This comes on the heels of an announcement that Donald Trump Jr is now accepting a speaking fee of over $120,000 to speak at foreign events... and the question of bought influence is being raised.
So now we're out for all of The Donald's golfing trips ((8 weeks out of 18) plus his wife and kid staying in New York... and now a thousand person entourage.
I'd like to buy a less expensive President, Alex.




I see, and your usual sources are all from the Fake News Media, No, Not Kidding!


All out of Stars and Flags to give.
