    Mulvaney said they looked at tons of places before deciding on Doral. How come they haven't released the list of all these other places? And why not just go to property #2 as a default?

    Probably because he lied about that too. They only considered Doral, because it's what his highness wanted.
    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

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

    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.
    It's not insane to assume a corrupt intent. He has displayed corrupt intent his entire life.

    Only the blind would try and debate this with me.

    Turn your ****ing filter off.

    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 don't know whether he will or not and, frankly, I don't care. If it's done for at or below the rates we know about then it saves the taxpayers money and THAT is my primary concern.

    As I keep saying: had trump personally hosted the event, the actual costs would not be disclosed.

    And after the event at trump's property is done, how will you verify what the cost to the taxpayer actually was?

    I absolutely care about the law and I absolutely HATE when it's abused for the purpose of ****ing over someone you disagree with politically.

    I truly don't know what the cost of operating such a place might be. I'm sure those who manage such places have a handle on it.

    I am, however, fairly aware of how base costs are fluffed up, so I assume those who manage such places and events are very well aware of such things.

    And yet, here you are telling those that disagree with you that the only thing you care about is saving money, but you can't tell us how much, because Trump never gave any figures.
    So please spare me the indignation about your selective love of law. It comes across as awfully hollow.
