White House officially helping Trump promote his golf course for next year’s G7 summit

Published

The official White House Twitter account on Monday helped President Donald Trump promote his financially struggling Trump National Doral Miami golf course as a location for next year’s G7 summit.

Even though Trump claimed during his press conference at the G7 that he had not finalized any plans to use the club as the location of the G7 meeting, the White House Twitter account posted a video of Trump touting the club’s benefits and described it as “Trump [sharing] the location of the next G7 summit, hosted by the United States,” which seemingly indicates that Trump is planning to make it the official meeting location.

Trump’s Doral golf club has been hammered financially ever since the president first launched his controversial political career in 2015. A Washington Post report from earlier this year found that the club’s net operating income fell by a whopping 69 percent between 2015 and 2017, and one tax consultant working on behalf of the Trump Organization has admitted that its income is down because of Trump’s negative reputation.

Because of this, Trump’s decision to use his own property to host the G7 has drawn accusations that he is shamelessly using his office to make money for himself, although the president regularly claims, without providing any evidence, that being president is costing him money.

Published

on

Republicans have nothing: That is the only reasonable conclusion one can draw after Monday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s clear that Donald Trump is guilty of running an extortion scheme against Ukraine in order to gin up false accusations against his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. The evidence, which has been laid out in a series of hearings and in a 300-page document released last week, is voluminous and crystal-clear.

Internet laughs out loud after Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham says ‘let’s be honest’

The credibility gap that has plagued official spokespeople for Donald Trump resulted in hilarious responses after she began her latest defense of the president with, "Let's be honest."

It started when Washington Post reporter David Nakamura noted an unfortunate young man who was stuck sitting next to Trump as the commander-in-chief issued a lie-filled rant about the "overthrow of government" in America.

This young man was invited to a White House roundtable on school choice but he had to sit there as Trump denounced the FBI's Russia investigation as an attempted "overthrow of government"--even though IG called probe legitimate and not political. pic.twitter.com/WdaYLudGnx

Former judge lays waste to GOP claim that evidence against Trump isn’t ‘first-hand’

Published

on

Republicans defending President Donald Trump have falsely claimed there is no first-hand knowledge that directly implicates the commander-in-chief.

As with many of the past defenses of Trump offered by Republicans, there are making factual holes with the argument.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) debunked the talking point during her questioning of House Intelligence Committee counsel Daniel Goldman.

"Mr. Goldman, my Republican colleagues have suggested there is no direct evidence," Garcia noted. "Is that true?"

"No," Goldman replied. "There's a lot of direct evidence. And a lot of the evidence that they say is hearsay is actually not hearsay."
