Donald Trump 'has trouble finding hotel room at G20 summit' | The Independent

Quote:
Donald Trump has reportedly had trouble getting a hotel room for the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

His team apparently waited too long to book accommodations for the President and his travelling staff and were told none of the major hotels had vacancies, Buzzfeed reported.

The local newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt reported that the Four Seasons had to turn him away as they were full.

In an ironic twist for the hotel chain owner, every luxury hotel in town seemed to be booked up. There do not appear to be any Trump-owned properties in the northern German city.

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, according to three advisers to the White House briefed on the meeting and two others with knowledge of it.

The meeting was also attended by his campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kushner only recently disclosed the meeting, though not its content, in confidential government documents described to The New York Times.

CNN story saying the defense of the meeting was to talk about adoption children program that was shut down years ago.

Guess see where this goes but it does seem like it'll go where we all think it will

Trump wants to partner with Russia on cybersecurity? Why don't we partner with ISIS on antiterrorism while we're at it?

It still feels like this whole term has been a giant troll job for the first six months.

I think the longer this investigation goes, the worse it gets for Trump.

What is going to suck either way when it completes is this country will become even more divided.

It's got its positives and negative aspects.

oh, I do take time off, shut things off at times when it becomes too upsetting.

It's seriously one of the most fucked up things I've heard him say, and he has said some REALLY fucked up things.

And it should be the most blatant of all of his blunders, but the conned have not said a thing. They never will, they are incapable of understanding what's going on.

We're fucked as a nation. There's two ways out of this, as I see it now. Someone to which they respect starts speaking out, or it gets extremely ugly. And I don't want ugly, I'm not calling for anything, it just seems we're at a crossroads.

As odd and far fetched as it sounds, someone or something has to turn a Hannity(or an equivalent mouthpiece) I really think it's the only way this doesn't get out of hand.

All I have to say is this is all absolutely crazy! The evidence is stacking up and even trump JR bisicaly admitted to collusion (he is so stupid that he incriminates himself, like his daddy) yet nothing is being done. Until democrats take control again, nothing is going to happens with a republican majority. The problem is the Democratic Party (like the Republican Party) is in much disarray right now that I don't see them taking a majority anytime soon. Until then most republicans will continue to look the other way and ignore the fact that trump is destroying the country. I wonder what it will take for rpublicans and trumpsters to finally admit/realize that they were all conned by the great conman trump? Maybe trump will piss off the wrong crazy leader from another country and start another nasty war, I wonder if then, trump supportes will finally wake up?

That will never happen. They will always move the goal posts to avoid the truth.

Fake news
Deep state
New world order

And of course their classic counter of any argument by bringing up Clinton or Obama
