U.S. Donald Trump Upon becoming president, Donald Trump handed operations of the Trump Organization to his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as executive vice presidents. Two years in, the younger Trumps have yet to deliver on new projects and developments. Not long after their father took office in 2017, the first sons unveiled plans to build relatively high-end hotels in areas where Trump won votes in the 2016 election, many of them in poor parts of the country. A hotel line called Scion was slated to open in Cleveland, Mississippi, in early 2018, followed by another line named American Idea with several properties in Mississippi, and a dozen in other locations. The number of preliminary property agreements the Trump Organization claimed to have in the pipeline was 39. But not one property has been completed since Trump's sons took the reins. The first Scion is about a year from being finished, while the first two American Idea properties in the Mississippi … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump’s Big Plan to Expand Father’s Business Has Gone Nowhere in 2 Years

POLITICS 07/31/2018 09:01 pm ET Updated 2 hours ago The president made the comment while pushing for voter ID laws at a Florida rally. By Doha Madani President Donald Trump told a crowd in Florida on Tuesday night that buying groceries requires an identification card. Trump made the comment while pushing for voter ID laws at a rally in Tampa to support Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) in the state’s gubernatorial race. The president touched on a number of his regular talking points, including unemployment rates and tariffs, before talking about voter fraud. Trump claimed Democrats were attempting to give undocumented immigrants the right to vote. “Which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything else,” Trump told the crowd. “You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card. You need ID.” President Trump, at his rally in Tampa, is pushing for voter ID laws and said … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Says You Need A Picture ID To Buy Groceries In America
Analysis Donald Trump When President-elect Donald Trump took the stage at the New York Hilton Midtown on election night, trailed by a gaggle of younger, photogenic women, he had just wiped the floor with another woman, Hillary Clinton, who until a few hours earlier had expected (as did most of the world) she would be the first female president of the United States. American women were left not with a second-wave role model headed for the White House, but with a clan of camp followers engaged in the sort of transactional relationship many feminists hoped had gone the way of the corset. They were as Trump-branded as the buildings bearing his name across the city of New York. Looking at his third wife, Melania, and daughters Ivanka and Tiffany—gleaming, towering replicas of one another—many in America were asking themselves the same question: Could their support for Trump, a man caught on tape belittling and objectifying women only months before, be genuine? Ivanka, who was … [Read more...] about Melania and Ivanka Trump Accepted Humiliation and Agreed to Become Donald Trump’s Brand Extensions
By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: March 28, 2019 at 1:18 pm | UPDATED: March 28, 2019 at 1:19 pm By David A. Farenthold and Jonathan O’Connell | Washington Post When Donald Trump wanted to make a good impression – on a lender, a business partner, or a journalist – he sometimes sent them official-looking documents called “Statements of Financial Condition.” These documents sometimes ran up to 20 pages. They were full of numbers, laying out Trump’s properties, debts and multibillion-dollar net worth. But, for someone trying to get a true picture of Trump’s net worth, the documents were deeply flawed. Some simply omitted properties that carried big debts. Some assets were overvalued. And some key numbers were wrong. For instance, Trump’s financial statement for 2011 said he had 55 home lots to sell at his golf course in southern California. Those lots would sell for $3 million or more, the statement said. But Trump had only 31 lots zoned … [Read more...] about How Trump used flexible valuations on financial documents
Looking for news you can trust?Subscribe to our free newsletters. On Sunday afternoon Attorney General William Barr sent a letter to Congress noting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” The message also noted that Mueller could not exonerate President Donald Trump of obstruction of justice, but that Barr himself had decided that the evidence Mueller developed was “insufficient to establish” that Trump had obstructed justice. Trump proclaimed it was “complete and total exoneration.” And Trump champions popped the cork and declared case closed, nothing to see, end of story, no need for further investigation, Trump did no wrong. Well, that is fake news. Barr’s note is clear that Mueller did not uncover evidence Trump and his gang were in direct cahoots with … [Read more...] about Trump Aided and Abetted Russia’s Attack.
