President Donald Trump’s toxic brand is destroying property values in Trump Tower, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes reported on Thursday.
“The Manhattan real estate market is one of the most expensive in the world, and despite a recent slowdown, it’s still a profitable investment for the vast majority of people who can afford it,” Hayes reported.
He explained that less than one-quarter of one percent of homes in Manhattan sold at a loss over the last two years.
Hayes noted that in Trump Tower, several units have sold for more than a twenty percent loss over the last two years.
“Now, anyone who looked for an apartment in New York knows about the website StreetEasy, we did browsing for hot deals on current listings in Trump Tower and I’m telling you, it’s a fire sale in there,” Hayes reported.
For example, Unit 30-G was listed for $6.9 million during the second month of Trump’s presidency. It just entered contract for $3.5 million.
“Ouch,” Hayes noted.
One unit was listed for $18 million during Trump’s campaign and is now been cut to $8,995,000 — a decrease of more than fifty percent.
“It’s a blood bath happening in the middle of one of the world’s strongest real estate markets,” he noted. “All seemingly due to the five letters on the front of the building.”
‘Get the hell out!’: Trump supporters freak out when protesters show up to Lindsey Graham event
A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."
Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.
"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers
At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.
Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again
When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.
While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.
"What made you say it?" the men asked.
The white guy shrugged.
"You that racist?" one of the men asks.
"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.
"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.
Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.
"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
