Lol! You think this is about the election!?!?! You are about 8 months behind the times, buddy. I've moved on from then.


No, you really haven't. Maybe one day, but not right now. That is obvious.

Big sigh... Sure, big conspiracy to make billions and destroy Amerika. If you own hotels you have to sell them all if you want to be president...? smh at the ongoing efforts to impede any progress by the current administration. Not that I agree with everything he does policy wise but I've never agreed 100% with any president even if I voted for them. We have a whole generation of spoiled people that will willingly join the "resist" movement even though they are clueless.

Sure you didn't vote for him. Love the internet, we can say what we want.

I'm a billionaire, did you know? Just spend my rich days of eating anything and being a keyboard warrior. I thought about send money to homeless peope, I'd rather stuff their pockets with pennies and ketchup packets.

He's already pulled the carrot away earlier when he promised to divest and didn't. You are just carrying his flame for you. The Constitution is more important than the runnings of a private company. If the company has to struggle to produce monthly reports showing they are donating the money, then so be it. Trump should have divested to avoid the trouble.

And on top of that, none of this addresses the fact that OTHER hotels (one of which is funded by taxpayer money) are losing profit at the expense of this hotel. There are many layers and problems with Trump's continues ownership of this hotel. You do know he is in direct violation of the lease on his building being an elected official, right?

Seriously. All I see from you is you making excuses. Where there is a will there is a way, and we need to be demanding that way not letting Trump do things at his own pace.

Ye, I post on my S8+ primarily, but sometimes if I want to get down and roll with some of the good members of this site to shutdown leftist fake news post, I'll jump on the laptop.

Lol. My post history speaks for itself. Third thread I ever wrote back during the 2012 election:
Vote for Johnson equals a Vote for Obama

Try again, bud. I didn't join these forums yesterday.

But, don't you know that's what it's all about? Feelings. It's not about jobs or the economy or anything to actually help people, it's all about how their feelings get hurt and lawsuits because their feelings got hurt.
It's never, ever about doing what's best for America, we have to do what's best for Democrats to keep them in power. Oh wait, I guess they've forgotten that America voted and they lost so badly it's an embarrassment. Their ideas and Liberal policies lost them over 1,000 seats under Obama, the whole damn party got rejected when they ran Hillary for President and now it's nothing but a 24/7 whine fest.
Obama did what he wanted and they defended him by saying " He's the President, he can do that". Obama even expanded his powers while in office, so he could do more without the approval of Congress, but let Trump use those same powers and it's "But, but, but he can't do that!!". "Constitution!!" "Laws!!'.
Whiny, butthurt losers.

Fair enough, you see? Thats good reporting. You made a claim, I challenged it, you provided proof, I'll yield. You didn't vote for Obama.

And this thread isn't? It's a breaking news thread where I posted a news article relaying a factual account of the lawsuit and you guys are just using it as an excuse to bitch about liberals, ad hominem me, and strawman my political history (as I just proved) instead of discuss the lawsuit. Pft don't talk to me about journalistic integrity.

Show me facts/sources? I like to make my determinations on that...rather than innuendos.

As far as other hotels losing profit...that is the nature of capitalism. Instead of blaming Trump and his hotel...perhaps they need to rethink their marketing strategy to increase their profit margins.

Is The Blaze a good enough source for you?

Not when the businesses are owned by politicians. THAT is corruption. It's literally textbook corruption.

Trumps hotels have a system set up to track foreign income and to donate it to the US Treasury.

I can't paste a link right now, but it was covered by some media.



That was the original plan, however, they discontinued that weeks ago. They essentially said it was too much trouble, and it violated their guests privacy. So, no. Not anymore.

That article was written in March. It's JUNE.

Lots of articles about it. Here is one.


The problem begins with identifying who is a representative of a foreign government, the pamphlet says. That would require asking every guest of Trump hotels, along with guests of affiliated bars, restaurants, and spas, if they represent a foreign government. And that “would impede upon personal privacy and diminish the guest experience of our brand,” the pamphlet says.

I beg to differ. I am arguing that such a lawsuit at this time is frivolous and wasting tax payer money. If they were smart...they would wait until 2018 and then file. At this time, they have no leg to stand on legally.

Edit add: a reply to: angeldoll

Did you read that article? It stated the monies will be distributed in 2018. Obviously, nothing else was written since then because the media realized it was a non-story until 2018!

It's out-dated information. Check the updates. They stopped keeping up with them in May because it tarnished the Trump "Brand" to ask for personal information.

A day in the Trump administration (If you want to call this drama that) is like a year in most administrations, with all the flip-flopping the public has to contend with.

Anyway, all this has me in a tailspin anyway, because I didn't think you could sue the President of the U.S.

When/why/how did this happen?

Okay, never mind about the "why". I know why. lol.
