    We fought to destroy rule by monarchy before; do you desire us to do that again?
    That rant has absolutely nothing whatever to do with the subject here.

    I honestly don't give a rat's ass about the G7. It can be held at a local Salvation Army auditorium for all I care.

    It's just nuts to assume there's some corrupt ulterior motive on Trump's part before the facts are known, not the least of which is that it would be illegal for Trump to profit from it.

    As I said, it took more mental effort for you to find the letters on your keyboard than you put into your post, I'm being kind in putting it that way.

    Last I heard NO ONE associated with Trump or the Hotel property would say what 'at cost' was. That is weird, any manager, accountant, connected to the hotel/gold course etc. should be able to give an estimate in a day.

    And because we know Trump is a serial liar, meaning the even when/if they did release an 'at cost' figure, that figure would be a lie.

    Seriously, if you go to Kroger and find a 2 liter bottle of Coke for 99 cents and then go to Piggly Wiggly and find a 2 liter bottle of coke for $1.09 which one costs less?
    Even if POTUS made $0.00 on the whole transaction, which isn't even close to true as the place is losing money and an at cost conference would pay the bills for that month, on top of that the free advertising I know you don't think he needs it but if that were true pepsi would never make a new commercial. Still even barring that there is that law that says no employee of the government shall be awarded any contracts by the government. It is a felony.

    I agree that we can obtain verifiable quotes from comparable properties. That's not the issue.

    So.. I'll ask one last time: Do you think trump will actually quote the actual cost and then show the world the actual invoices from the event? Based on how "transparent and truthful" trump has been in the past? To borrow your phrase: "Oh for Pete's sake!".

    I disagree that "we will see in the end". As trump has done with everything else he and his administration will stonewall any disclosures of actual costs of the event.

    Will be interesting to compare and contrast the venue that is ultimately chosen over what could have been at Doral.

    Wonder if Democrats in the media will think so too.....

    We will see where G7 ends up and can make an educated guess. Unless you think public room costs are classified.

    Can you please tell us what the "at cost" is?

    What is "cost" at Doral today exactly?
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump
