Trump's 'world-class' golf club has toxic chemicals in its drinking water [View all]

The tap water at Trump National, which Trump has called the 'Summer White House,' has high levels of toxic chemicals that never break down.

Donald Trump constantly brags about his hotel and golf properties, including to foreign leaders. However, those properties are often less than appealing when you scratch the surface. The latest problem, at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, is toxic tap water.

The Environmental Working Group, a nonpartisan environmental nonprofit, issued a press release Tuesday about the water quality at Trump National. Trump National is served by one of the hundreds of water systems in New Jersey contaminated with high levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and other perfluorinated chemicals (PFAS). Those toxic chemicals show up in tap water at Trump National at alarming rates.

It's all the more alarming because Trump frequently holds official events there. He calls the Bedminster property the "Summer White House." The club's website boasts that it is a "world-class private club" and wedding venue. Trump has hosted dinners with high-powered business leaders at the club, and in advance of the 2017 U.N. Assembly, indicated he would host world leaders there. - Shareblue


When you trust a republican, drink the water at your own risk.
