    Default Tell me libs

    Are you ashamed that some Americans want to put America interest first?

    Because I'm getting the impression that's the case around here?

    And if so why?

    What's wrong with that thinking?
    To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!

    That is all you got. Seems you don't care about the rust belt and jobs you just want Republicans elected.

    You're working for him right now. For free. Just the way Trump likes it.

    You have trouble spelling basic words that the rest of us learned in the third and fourth grades.

    You're not mentally equipped to judge what others know.

    During the Atlantic City casino boom in the 1980s, Philadelphia cabinet-builder Edward Friel Jr. landed a $400,000 contract to build the bases for slot machines, registration desks, bars and other cabinets at Harrah's at Trump Plaza.

    The family cabinetry business, founded in the 1940s by Edward’s father, finished its work in 1984 and submitted its final bill to the general contractor for the Trump Organization, the resort’s builder.

    Edward’s son, Paul, who was the firm’s accountant, still remembers the amount of that bill more than 30 years later: $83,600. The reason: the money never came. “That began the demise of the Edward J. Friel Company… which has been around since my grandfather,” he said.
    Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will "protect your job." But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

    It is the contractor's fault for not getting paid.

    Just like Conan says. So the next time he doesn't get paid for any reason, he'll know that it is his own fault.

    If he has a job, that is.

    Two contractors allege getting stiffed for work on Trump’s D.C. hotel

    Their employees installed plumbing, air conditioning, baseboards and crown molding in Donald Trump’s $212 million luxury D.C. hotel.

    Afterward, they say, they were stiffed.

    Two Washington-area small businesses have filed liens on the Trump International Hotel, saying they have not been compensated for their work completing the 263-room project the president-elect routinely heralds as having finished under budget and ahead of schedule.

    One firm, Joseph J. Magnolia Inc., is a private, family-owned plumbing firm with offices in Northeast D.C. and suburban Maryland that claims it is out $2.98 million. According to a mechanic’s lien the company filed four days before Christmas, Magnolia worked on the Trump hotel for more than two years, from September of 2014 to December of 2016.

    What do you say libs?
    Conservative economic policies are what created the wealth gap, and these unfair trade deals.

    Liberals were always against them. Democrats, not so much.

    Your (former) party and philosophy is what created the mess you are complaining about.

    You will be surprise how fast you can get a name for yourself by not paying.

    Same thing with suppliers as well.
    Yup. Financiers and banks get leery, too. Might explain why no banks in the states are loaning Trump money and why Kushner relied on half a billion in Qatari money.

    One of President Donald Trump’s luxury golf resorts in Florida was ordered by an appeals court to pay a local supply company that wasn’t paid in full for paint used to spruce up the property’s 10 lodges in 2014.

    Trump National Doral Miami must pay The Paint Spot more than $32,000 plus attorney’s fees of about $390,000, meaning the total Trump must hand over is almost triple the original paint bill of $142,530. The ruling was issued Wednesday by Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal in Miami.

    “The case should never have reached this stage,” Daniel Vega, attorney for The Paint Spot, said in an interview. The property’s owner "refused to ever consider any type of reasonable settlement," he said.

    That one has a pay wall, so it must be super fake.

    Also, I don't know how to use incognito mode.

    Hands over ears: "Fake fake fake fake fake fake fake . . ."

    I think most people understand that.

    I also think that Trump has certain "relationships" that motivate contractors into agreeing to terms with him. Terms he knows he'll never keep.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine

    Hundreds of workers and contractors have accused Donald Trump of not paying his bills over the years, according to an investigation by USA Today.

    The report found hundreds of liens, judgments and at least 60 lawsuits against Trump and his businesses alleging that he has not fully paid workers for their labor and in some instances refused to pay commissions for his own lawyers and real estate brokers.
    Since 2005, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s businesses have also racked up 24 violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act for not paying employees minimum wage or overtime pay.

    The report found a tendency for Trump's businesses to engage in lengthy legal battles over relatively small dollar figures, often making settlements that require confidentiality from the plaintiffs.
