Reporter visits Trump's Doral resort, finds a sh*thole



I guess Donald Trump runs his resorts like he runs our country.

A Daily Mail reporter recently visited Trumpís Doral golf resort, where he wanted to lure foreign leaders and dignitaries like Buffalo Bill beckons luckless victims into shitty vans, and he found, well, a shithole.


Okay, if youíve eaten lunch recently, bookmark this diary and come back later. Itís gonna get gross.

Visitors need only to sit by the aquarium windows of the resort's BLT Prime Restaurant to understand fully why it was ridiculous to even consider hosting an auspicious gathering like the G7 there.

They can munch on a $106-porterhouse steak while enjoying the views of not just one but two county garbage dumps rising high above the golf course's palm-tree line Ė and getting higher by the day.

If French President Emmanuel Macron was digging into a $38-Dover sole at a different window, he'd be able to spot, just to the west, the smokestacks and silos from a garbage-burning plant towering over the 12th hole of the resort's famed Blue Monster golf course.

Oh, but it gets much worse:

2. If that reporter really wanted to throw up, a visit to the kitchen would have done it.

I have a friend who is in the restaurant business. She says if you want to confirm whether a place is safe to eat at, pay attention to the things that you can see. She says look around at how clean floors and tables are. Sniff the air to see whether employees mop the floors with dirty mops/water (she says that if a mildly sour smell is in the place, the mop and/or water is (are) filthy. The clincher for her? She says visit the restroom, if anything there is dirty, she says that you should get the hell out and never eat there, because she says that when she has visited kitchens in places like that, the kitchen is two to three times worse than the restroom.

6. Here's the direct link to the article and pics

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7631265/Inside-Trumps-Doral-Resort-G7-dignitaries-missed.html?ito=social-twitter_dailymailus

Maybe Trump thinks it would have been better for the G-Shithole countries meeting.

That article devalued the property by millions and along with the bedbugs story, is going to hurt the business for many years to come. They're not going to get rid of the smoke stacks or garbage mounds any time soon.

9. OK... smokestacks and silos are good but Windfarms are bad.

Trump filed a complaint to the Scottish government against the ďthe horrible idea of building ugly wind turbines directly off Aberdeenís beautiful coastline.Ē Trumpís golf course opened in 2012.

The wind farm Donald Trump tried to block is now complete

he tried to get the G7 there. What a scheme--tens of millions would have been needed to meet the standard for that event. Gotta give him credit for thinking of all the angles by which to grift. One of his actual talents.

27. Because he knew he was going to change his residence

from New York to Florida. So of course he would have us pay for all of the work. Could you imagine the bill at the end? That's the only bill he would make sure was paid.

He's a snake oil salesman, plain and simple.

just another scam to put big bucks in Emolument Claus's pocket

29. Trump just bought it in 2012

The garbage dump had to already be there. Maybe that's why they were going bankrupt. Things were bad and were going to get worse. It was 50 years old. Trump bought it for $150 million and supposedly spent another $250 Million on renovations.

He got $125Million from Duetche Bank. Where did he get the rest? What's the debt service on $125 Million and the rest? Is it any surprise he has dozens of liens against him from contractors he stiffed? Did he borrow $250 Million for the renovations and pocket half of it? Grifters gotta grift.

.

It would smell like the western side of Staten Island.

33. What kills me is the Trump "coat of arms".

There is no Trump coat of arms. It is completely made up. His family is trash from Europe and now trash from the US and they always will be. The vulgarity is bred into them. I know janitors and cleaning people with more class and dignity than the Trump family. It is not a matter of money, it is a matter of character.

36. The ultimate tourist trap "South of the Border" comes to mind.

In other words, run down and just disgusting.

For anyone not familiar with I-95, SotB is the undisputed King of soft racist billboards on that route; beckoning families to a supposed bewildering joy.

Then.

Reality.

37. Notice how the Trump cultist in the article brought up the Savoy

They are all skilled in whataboutisms. That seems to be the Trump Humperís go to.

Also, Iíd put limiting or restricting Russian tourists access to this country high up my list of wants for the next president. I donít want them here, and they donít need to be here. Fuck off back to Saint Petersburg and Moscow.

38. He Brought the Receipts

The most important thing about this article is that the author brought the receipts. The author was able to provide pictures of the claims that were made in the article. The Trump family cannot claim that this article was just liberal media bias against a Trump owned business. The claims were backed up by proof.
