The Doral Debacle


"History, if written by normal people instead of loons, will tell the truth about this President. He was not a traitor - we was a patriot. Instead of using the system (like so many before him have), he tried to fix the system. For that, in his lifetime, he was hated."

Doral. One of the premier golf sites in the US of A. Donald Trump owns a resort on the course. I would guess it makes quite a bit of money every year. As would every other premier golf course which is on the PGA tour. The next G-7 (or maybe a G-8) meeting will be in the United States. Booking these things is always a problem. Logistics galore. That is when Donald Trump had an idea. Why not offer his Doral resort, free of charge, to host the event? Everyone could be on site, it is gorgeous, and why the heck not? Why not? Democrats.
It was no more announced that the Trump Administration would like to book Doral for the June 2020 G-7 conference, when the caterwauling started going up from the Democrat's locker. "That son of a *****! We will bring him up on charges of abusing the Emoluments Clause!" Sounds good, except for one thing. This was a zero dollar contract. "Wait just a second!", the caterwauling continued, "He will get brand recognition from using his resort!" Really? Who in this country had not heard of the name "Trump" by now.
After the pressure got too much (including from his own side), the President rescinded the offer. "Fine", he thought. "This will cost the country more money, but it is not worth the hassle. Besides, Doral will not lose money next June." (Paraphrasing of the President's thoughts were done by the Bird).
This was a GREAT idea. It really was. But you know - the optics. Even thought it made sense, and did not break any laws, it had to be killed. Where does that leave the G-7? Oh, they will find a place - at a steep cost. But at least Donald Trump will not have his fingerprints on it. However, the only ones who are worried about Trump's fingerprints, are the ones who are worried about Trump staying in office.
This is not over. Doral was just another shot over the bow. I listened to a pundit this afternoon on the radio. The pundit said the impeachment of Donald Trump could lead to a hot civil war, instead of the cold on we now have. Let that sink in for a minute. "Hot" civil war, means we are all shooting at each other. Blood, suffering, wounding, killing. All the ingredients of war. All because many short sighted haters on the socialist side of the street, hate the current President enough to remove him without cause.
History, if written by normal people instead of loons, will tell the truth about this President. He was not a traitor - we was a patriot. Instead of using the system (like so many before him have), he tried to fix the system. For that, during his lifetime, he was hated. History, on the other hand, if recorded properly, will have very kind things to say about Donald Trump. Including the offer of Doral, for a very important G-7 (or G-8) meeting.
