Quoting from the "fake news" media? Are we supposed to believe this?

This DACA deal really has something for everyone. I enjoyed watching the ex-Trump supporters burning their MAGA caps in fury.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Dems, in a glorious feat of self-immolation, nominate her for Pres in 2020.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Inauguration speaker Franklin Graham (son of Billy Graham): God allowed Donald Trump to win

Graham said, “All I know is Donald Trump was supposed to lose the election,” according to projections of the results.

“For these states to go the way they did, in my opinion, I think it was the hand of God,” he said.

Source

So how does he explain two major Hurricanes and a third, Maria, on the way plus Hurricane Jose causing a tropical storm watch which remains in effect for the coast of Long Island, New York, from Fire Island to Port Jefferson, as well as southern New England, including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.?

Hurricane Maria's destructive tear across the Caribbean is well underway, with the storm obliterating parts of Dominica and threatening "catastrophic" damage to Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico Faces Hurricane Maria After Irma’s $1 Billion Damage and hundreds of thousands still without power.

"No generation has seen a hurricane [Maria] like this since San Felipe II in 1928," Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said Tuesday. "This is an unprecedented atmospheric system."

Puerto Rico is an unincorporated U.S. territory.

So much for the ‘Trump slump’ — visitors to the U.S. are up in 2017

No 'Trump slump' in US tourism and expert believes there could be a 'Trump bump'

Asked if there's a "Trump slump" in travel to the 12 Southern states marketed by Travel South USA, CEO Liz Bittner said: "The truth of the matter is no. I think it was a lot of media hype."

Fake news!

But there are no official tourist numbers after Jan 2017

So now we have the official numbers
Quote:
The U.S. saw a noticeable drop in international tourism during the first few months of 2017, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

Visitors to the U.S. decreased by 697,791 over the first three months of the year, according to new data from the Department of Commerce, European countries were down 10.1 percent.

The new data represents a 4.2 percent drop from the previous year, resulting in an estimated $2.7 billion in losses, according to the Times.

"We get to use our assets 100% free of charge," Trump tells Forbes.

"the Trump Organization received payments for its use, part of more than $1.2 million that has no documented recipients past the Trump Organization".

Too easy.

The Trump Organization is a charity now? $1.2 million is "a few k"? (Maybe it is when a gift of a million dollars from daddy is "a small loan".) I'd have sworn that was fake news if I hadn't heard it from you.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced in June that it was launching an inquiry into the Eric Trump Foundation earlier this month, after Forbes revealed practices that appeared to violate state laws and federal tax rules.

Sure. Just as Trump was assumed competent as "CEO of America" until he proved otherwise.

I'll just sit here and wait.
