Trump’s Scottish golf resorts lose over $14 million — despite military flights: report

Published

President Donald Trump has been hemorrhaging money from his Scotland golf courses for the past several years, but new updated documents show both courses are reporting losses again this year.

Last week, Golf Week reported the golf course in Aberdeenshire posted losses of 1.07 million pounds in 2018 ($1.3 million). Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that both courses reported combined losses to the tune of $14.3 million in total for 2018.

Trump’s Turnberry resort was the source of a scandal involving Trump’s alleged demand that military aircraft stop to refuel at the airport near his high-end golf resort and stay on his property. Despite the U.S. tax dollars being spent at Trump’s property, the resorts still managed hefty losses. The Trump Organization reported $22.5 million in revenue from Turnberry, which is higher than any other year in the resort’s history.

“But the company also lost $13 million for the year, more than tripling its 2017 loss of $4.1 million,” the report said.

“These two courses are among 14 properties Trump bought without loans between 2006 and 2014, an all-cash spending binge that topped $400 million,” The Post recalled.

Turnberry has never shown a profit since Trump opened it.

The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.

In a tweet posted on Tuesday afternoon, Trump argued that Democrats can't possibly impeach him because of the strength of the American economy.

"MORE PEOPLE WORKING TODAY IN THE USA THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY!" the president wrote. "Tough numbers for the Radical Left Democrats to beat! Impeach the Pres."
