We might see POTUS-45* use the Billy Baroo soon, and tip us a quarter because he lost the grip on his shaft.
Note the media framing and the target list below, since nothing’s going to happen because like most alternative facts, it will never have happened, just as it got assembled in the factory of conspiracy-theory machines… Then again, bunkers on Scottish golf courses are much like bomb craters.
“A terrorist could decide to target a Trump Tower in Stuttgart, a Trump hotel in South Korea, or a Trump golf resort in Dubai. ”
It has all been a bad dream since November.
So instead of the casualties, outrage, counter-attacks, MIC investment, and patriotism… maybe it will be all an alternative fact and the US government should just say that it would be a conflict of interest to care about some overseas properties like 16,800 wine bottles in Istanbul.
Donald Trump not only denied recent allegations by Oscar De La Hoya that he cheated during a round of golf two years ago… Trump told the Associated Press … that De La Hoya is “absolutely lying. Not only didn’t I cheat, I didn’t play with him. I have never played a round of golf with this guy.“ TMZ Sports posted a video … showing Trump participating in a celebrity match with De La Hoya watching in 2010 as part of “Donald J. Trump’s Fabulous World of Golf” show.
American Presidents traditionally choose to be buried in their home towns, often in sight of a library built in their honor. If Donald J. Trump were to win the election, that might change. Although five of his relatives are interred in the Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery, in Middle Village, Queens, Trump has been making plans to spend eternity behind the first tee of one of the courses at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. “Wouldn’t you want to be buried here?” he told the Wall Street Journal, in 2015.
…I don’t think “cheating” is an accurate description of anything he did during the round we played together, just as I don’t think “lying” is an accurate description of what he does when he gives a speech or answers questions at a press conference. In Trump’s own mind, I suspect, he really did shoot 71 that day, if not (by now) 69. Trump’s world is a parallel universe in which truth takes many forms, none of them necessarily based on reality. And we’d all better get used to his way of thinking, because for the next four years we’re going to be living in that universe, too.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for Donald Trump’s name to be removed from a Turkish franchisee’s towers
“I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” The residential tower includes the only collective wine cellar in Turkey, with a capacity of 16,800 bottles. The cellar is built by Focus Wine Cellars. The U.S.-Turkish relationship has been going through a very difficult period. Clearly, there are hopes in Ankara that it will be easier with a new administration. But it’s unclear exactly which way the new administration is going to go with Turkey or with the Middle East or, frankly, with the rest of the world.
A quick look at the list of Trump’s properties reveals that several of them are located in countries with significant serious civil unrest and instability.
Trump Tower in Istanbul, for example, probably seemed like a pretty safe bet five or ten years ago as Turkey was working towards membership of the European Union. But today, thanks to spillover from the Syrian civil war, the failed military coup, and the recent assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, the neighborhood seems much less secure than it used to.
Trump properties in Muslim-majority nations may present the greatest risk of attack, given Trump’s hardline rhetoric towards the Islamic State and towards Muslims and Islam more generally. Trump Tower Manila, for example, sits within easy striking distance of Abu Sayyaf, a Philippine Islamist group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and has a history of bombing attacks.
Trump also owns high-visibility properties in Azerbaijan, the United Arab Emirates, and India, all of which house one or more jihadist groups. Even Trump Tower in Seoul might not be safe: ISIS has recently labeled South Korea an enemy of the caliphate, attempting to incite attacks on U.S. installations in South Korea. In all of these locales, Trump Towers might prove to be an irresistible target.
