  1. Trump supporters — just try thinking “Outside the Fox” for a minute.

    He’s gonna charge the American people a fortune for using his property. PROFIT PROFIT PROFIT…..nothing more.

    • @ElSmusso all of his assets were put into a blind trust. He had no idea what was invested in at all. It did make some money, but I’m not sure how much. And I don’t think this president is losing a penny. He HAS collected all of the pay he gets as president and has not revealed anything about his finances to prove he gave it back (hint: he didn’t), just like he didn’t give the money he collected for veterans until it went public and he finally turned over the money. He was planning to keep it, if no one bitched about it. As to losing money, he has made millions on all of the golf trips to Mara Lago by charging the SS for their rooms, food and the golf carts they use to follow him around the course.
      Pretending this president is honest is a sign of one of two things. Either you are blinded by some sort of brainwashing or you are a pathological liar, just like him.

      Seeing as how he is not being paid a penny for being our President, why shouldn’t he make a buck, this is called capitalism. I know, must be a socialist, if you hate capitalism and our President so much, there are a lot of socialist countries you can go to.

      @a. barker Do you know, President Trump has never taken a paycheck for being President, he has done this all for 0 dollars.

    • @Septembers Whisper He has cashed every check he got and he did take the check in for being president. That is just a lie you guys like to put out there hoping someone will believe it. Only idiots believe it.

      @Billy Summers You are sick.

    And so far he’s spent over 100,000,000 tax payers money on golf vacation. The con artist strikes again.

    • Thomas Fletcher | August 26, 2019 at 8:07 PM | Reply

      @SkyGemini Obama spent that much on
      “Folksy videos” . Diners ,
      Hospitals , Schools , Bar-b-que , parks , city streets , Fast foods , sub-shops , convenience stores , jewelry stores , candy stores , school supplies , womens clothing stores , florists , homeless people , homeless shelters , city sidewalks , beaches , and 1000 more places . That takes Secret Service clearances first , film crews , directors , sound people , writers , editors , and make-up people . You don’t think those videos are home movies do you ?

    • Lynn paulovich – there is also the fact that a lot of that money for his golf trips goes right into his own pocket! We pay his resort for the rooms that the Secret Service and his people stay in. We pay his resort for their food and everything else they might spend money on. It adds up to millions of dollars a day that goes in his pocket!!!

  6. Trump is like which lie are you asking about ONLT 1

  7. Thomas Rakewell | August 26, 2019 at 12:54 PM | Reply

    He looks defeated. The hunch, the breathing, the sloped shoulders… His body language is utterly defeated.

    • A bigger defeat is about to come.

    • If you notice, his whole demeanor changed when Macron left and he was alone with the reporters. He did not want to let Hallie Jackson or too many of the American reporters to ask their questions. He said under his breath when Hallie got up, ” Hear we go.” And he kept interrupting her and saying, “One question”. He let others ask more than one but cut her off.

    • @Marcia Baxter ++ yes he needs his Fix badly.

    • I wonder if his Entourage is keeping him from hearing about Joe Walsh’s announcement and all the criticism piled on him by Mr. Walsh.

    • He looks sick. Big Macs and KFC every day are catching up to him.

  8. Is he still going to be president next G7 ?? And WTF is he talking about losing $2-3 B for being the President- Who is going to believe that??Oh his base-right!
    Nice commercial about his property-he is still in the infomercial mode selling his steaks. welcome to USA!

      @jessie k I’ve brought something like this up before, and they say that Trump is so great at being president, that he barely has to do anything! It’s hilarious! Also look at Trump now, compared to himself when he first became president! He looks exactly the same! Other presidents age considerably, he’s the only one who hasn’t. Don’t get me wrong. He still looks like a rotten pumpkin, but still.

    • Don’t worry, New York will unseal indictments for the Trump family as soon as he leaves office.

    • @Miro Mato Trump and Moscow Mitch are letting a Russian business move into Kentucky. They will get millions for that scam.

    • @Pete Lind imagine paying so much and found that the products used in the renovation are low grade and the house has nothing to guard against fire. Who wants to stay there? IF he used quality products and workmanship, even if he is the worst president people will still go. Don’t need him to force sell his resorts and hotels.

    • @Jordan Little Well he is the only one without using his brain. I think the people aged instead of him with all these nonsense he created.

  9. The trump grift continues. It’s about a location he can profit from.

      @Thomas Fletcher No President in history has been as venal as Trump. And surely you are not be suggesting that the USA is a kleptocracy like Russia or some OTHER 3rd world country.

    • Don’t believe what Trump says, watch closely what he does! He lies at all time.

    • Thomas Fletcher thatโ€™s exactly why Presidents put their businesses into a blind trust, or freeze it.

      One of the presidents sold his farm because he thought it could be considered a conflict of interest.

      Trump however, has NOT done that.

      @Kaiza Obama had a list of hotels he didn’t stay at. A POTUS can legally make money so long as he goes before Congress and asks permission. Congress oversees the Emoulent Clause.

  10. So he can make millions from all other countries and our own?

  11. Trump: I don’t care about money.
    Don JR: $ is all my father cares about.

  12. This greedy SOB just wants to pocket more US tax payer money.

    Trump is actually working? I am very surprised! He is an embarrassement to the entire world. Each time Trump open his mouth his lying again. I am so sick and tired of watching this POS.

  14. omg! hes a fkin CROOK. How is this liar still alive?

  15. He sounds like he’s pitching his stoopid hotels to hold important events to charge the world’s leadership. Yep. It’s all about boosting his “brand.”

  16. Progressive Humanist | August 26, 2019 at 12:59 PM | Reply

    To make more money off the office is the reason. Another direct violation of the Emoluments Clause, which is an impeachable act, & one of the 10+ 45* has committed.

    • Progressive Humanist;
      Totally agree. He literally stood before millions of people, and promoted his property, (While on a G7 meeting, representing the United States.) Just like he did on the Dave Letterman Show years ago, promoting his vodka, his steaks, his ties. Then DL asked him where are the ties made? Sheepishly he replied, “In China”.
      BTW, that’s where his MAGA hats are made.

  17. Trump has never looked weaker than when he’s trying to cover-up his grifting. His entire presidency has been about his own financial gain. That’s why he brought in Ivanka and Jared, to be his National Grifting Advisors.

    He doesnโ€™t have 3 to 5 bl;) why he owes the banks so much? He already costs 100s of millions for his fun.

    • claire bigelow | August 26, 2019 at 4:24 PM | Reply

      thats why he is on bended knees in front of all his dictator buddies…begging for money and giving head jobs for cash

  19. So he has figured he has lost billions being president? I would like to see the financial records to prove that.

    • I’m actually surprised he didn’t say “Trillions and Trillions “

    • I find it ironic that the worst president in history has a habit of always saying things are the “greatest” and the “best.”

    He just did a multi -million dollar infomercial on the taxpayer’s dime. Unreal
