Trump's Caribbean Estate

Hurricane Irma Just Slammed into Trump’s Caribbean Estate

A ferocious Hurricane Irma barreled early Wednesday morning across the Caribbean island of St. Martin, where President Trump owns a lavish waterfront estate, wrecking buildings, overturning cars and uprooting trees with punishing winds.

 

The status of Trump’s 11-bedroom gated compound on Plum Bay, which is on the market, was not immediately known. But officials with the French government, which controls the side of the island where his beachfront property is located, said the territory suffered widespread destruction.

 

“It’s an enormous catastrophe. Ninety-five percent of the island is destroyed,”  Daniel Gibbs, the president of the territorial council, said in a radio interview. “I’m in shock. It’s frightening.”

Trump's Caribbean Estate

 

Trump and his family are safe and sound, I'm more concerned about the " little people " who can't afford to run or who didn't have a wine cellar / bunker to shelter in.

 

A lot of islands have been hit, and Jose is on the way.

 

Remember Hurricane Andrew ?

 

Andrew spent hours over land, this has been going on for a week and when Irma does hit Florida it will be over land for days.

 

Then Jose, just upgraded to Cat 4, blows in.

Just wait. He'll be looking for congressional approval for funds to fix his estate.....................Or, it will just be an executive order.

In re the Mexican Wall:  Sen. Cruz had a good idea--take all the drug money made by the Mexico cartels and use it to pay for the Wall.  Who got that money anyway when the drug kingpin was arrested?  If drugs are seized in the U.S. the govt reclaims the money and that includes any assets, jewelry, boats, houses, etc.  all property.

     Seeing as how that property is not on US governed land, it would seem foolish to assume that the US should pay for it....but then again, we are talking about Donald and the Republicans, so anything is possible.     

 

      Anyone familiar with French law?

What has happened cannot be changed.

What will happen to his Florida holdings cannot be averted by any actions anyone can take in the next few days.

Be interesting to know how much Der Trumper actually owns and how much is mortgaged. My bet is the big loser will be anybody who loaned lemontop the money to buy Merriweather Post's old digs that she had offered to the Government as a Summer Whitehouse, but was turned down because of the humungeous operating costs. Look on the good side - no more million tax-dollar golf trips for Der Trumper for awhile at least.

 

Food for Thought: The Secret Service has already paid $60,000 to rent GOLF CARTS to protect Lemontop when he visits HIS golf courses. I'm 99% certain GSA motorpool has suitable alternative vehicles, so why are they using private party rentals...other than the fact all the money is being paid to Der Trumper, as is the cost of the rooms at tRump Towers the SS was renting before they went bust and had to move into a van on the street.
