    On topic. I found my golf ball at Doral where the G7 will be held. You are the one off topic.

    I agree. But I also know that I will hold them to the same standard I hold a republican administration.

    Sadly in America’s today Most people decide on their position based on the “who” and not the “what”. Agreeing or disagreeing with someone based on who said it, and not what they are saying is the death of this country. Sadly I think that DJT may have divided this country to the point we may not be able to return from that.

    Donald Trump is not whats dividing this country, it is those who will defend any and everything he does, no matter how egregious or how outlandish, or how obviously it is fact checked to be wrong who will destroy this country. I really believe that most people who support Trump do it more out of hatred for democrats, then for support/love of Donald Trump. And that list is growing as it gets more and more obvious that they support party over country. We are at a tipping point in this country. And this latest Trump move to host the G7 at his own resort was so over the top, that when most republicans who spent the last 10 years screaming on high that the Clinton Foundation was nothing but grift, and that it was a stain on america for it them using the their political offices to make money that it was destroying america (their words), that when Trump announced that HE decided to have the G7 at his resort, the right didn’t not say a word, they actually said that it was OK, and that he had every right to do it.

    THAT in itself showed that America may be irreversibly divided because people are now supporting party over country

    You lost me at "your ilk." That's one of the most insulting phrases on these forums.

    All politicians find ways to make money off their "service." That doesn't even come close to Trump's blatant and constant corruption.

    Non-profit? You must be joking. At cost, he said, but who gets to decide what that cost will be? The place, by all accounts, needs fumigation and paint, probably new furnishing as well. Guess who gets to pay for that?

    This is a scam, one of the few things Trump actually knows how to do. It is the epitome of corruption, but his supporters are too enthralled to see it, IMO.

    You understand his resort was the cheapest option and it would be held at cost?

    Yes?

    Ok cool, so then you also know it's a stupid idea to demand the summit be moved.

    Yet here we are.

    The Chinese economy is growing at the slowest pace in nearly 30 years.

    Meanwhile, our economy keeps humming along. Yeah, we're in so much trouble. The US consumer market is as large as the EU and China COMBINED.

    They need us far more than we need them.

    Just like every other country on the planet.

    It's simple economics. The US is Amazon, and if you choose to try and boycott our market, someone else will gladly jump in and take your place... and profits.

    I'm just saying we can.

    How would we know it's the cheapest option? I mean, it's a Trump property so I assume you are 100% correct, but without knowing the other options, it's a guess on your part.

    Oh, the Mighty Mick said it was?? Well then, how many hours will it take to walk that part back??

    I certainly didn't demand it be moved... I'd love to have an entire 8 months to keep this story in the news...

    "The news?"

    No. Not good enough. How do you know the Bidens family had a combined net worth of 500k in 2008?

    Because of the outrage caused by trump's idiocy and inability to recognize the massive conflict of interest associated with awarding himself a no bid contract.

    Are you giving Carter a pat on the back or pointing out just how incredibly stupid he was. I think the latter.

    Just google his rise in net worth since he left office. Or you can choose to ignore it. It’s worked up until now right?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Trump administration received some phone calls from foreign officials who view even the appearance of impropriety in a way that Trump, it would seem, simply can't!

    No boogeymen, just a desire for civility and good manners, something we seldom get from "you people."

    Did he suggest that he's taking a loss?

    BTW, you know where Florida is, right? How many tourists book hotels during the Summer there? If you take less of a loss because you're booking your hotel, it's still bettering your financial situation, and violating the Emoluments Clause, which doens't require a "profit" for there to be a violation.

    So I take you think that the Clinton Foundation was also an honest endeavor for the Clintons ;)

    Florida is 10 miles SOUTH of the boiling pits of Hell, especially in June, but technically, June 10-12 isn't even summer yet....
