"Under budget and ahead of schedule. So important. We don't hear those words so often, but you will," he said Trump at the hotel's ribbon cutting ceremony. "Today is a metaphor for what we can accomplish for this country."
Yesterday Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton's 69th birthday officially opened the Trump International Hotel at Washington DC. Was this by accident or design? Did Trump do this to rub Hillary's face in his success and make her look foolish for ridiculing his incredible business career? It would seem so. Crooked, corrupt, incompetent Hillary campaigning in Tampa took a cheap shot at Trump and his latest achievement saying (without proof) that he hired illegal Mexican aliens to build this project and furnished it with furniture mostly imported from Asia. And to strike back at Trump for the audacity of opening the hotel on her birthday Hillary trotted out Chef Jose Andres, a Spanish-American celeb businessman who backed out of opening a restaurant at the new hotel because of the "racist" comments Trump made about Mexicans. If you want a good laugh listened to his slanderous Trump derangement speechHERE.
Hillary and Trump hater Chef Jose Andreas.
I wonder what Chef Jose thinks of all those Latino Americans who agree with Trump on immigration and border security and will be voting for him in two weeks (see)? That they're not right in the head? Or that they're more American than Latino? Too assimilated and therefore not truly representative of the American Latino community? Striping Blacks and Latinos of racial and ethnic authenticity is how leftists treat them if they're right thinking conservatives.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLARY,YOU'RE BEHIND IN THE POLLS
A mere 1000 Floridians in Tampa turn out to celebrate Hillary's 69th birthday yesterday. A local resident jokingly said "there are more people in the park when Hillary isn't there."
Meanwhile, ironically, as a tired, worn out, sick Hillary was campaigning on her birthday in Florida she got word that the latest Bloomberg poll (as in Michael Bloomberg who backs her) had Trump topping her by two points in Florida (see). No surprise to me as I've predicted Trump taking the Sunshine State for very good empirical reasons: the sickest, most lifeless, least inspiring and corrupt Democrat presidential candidate in history isn't energizing or exciting enough voters-especially minorities as Politico warned (see).
"Trump is a fraud out to scam America!"
Now truly, if Trump were the awful, fraudulent, financially unsound businessman that Hillary and her media allies say he is then why did the General Services Administration pick him to renovate the Old Post Office and transform it into a luxury hotel with a 60 year lease? Why did Obama's GSA, after an exhaustive evaluation and vetting process, choose Trump for the project over some of the largest real estate companies and developers in the world (including Hilton Worldwide)? Surely the GSA knew of Trump's failures and bankruptcies, and his $916 million loss in the 90s. So why him? I don't know. But what is inarguable is that with the project completed on time and under budget-Hillary can denigrate it all she wants-the GSA picked the right man and organization for the job.
TRUMP, REAGAN AND THE OLD POST OFFICE
Now throughout the course of his campaign all of you have heard Trump boasting about winning the Old Post Office project from the government. But what you probably don't know is that Trump was awarded the deal on February 6, 2012, the 101st anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth (see); and that the building's address 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue is just 500 numbers down the street from the White House at 1600, and 200 numbers from the Ronald Reagan Building at 1300 in between (see). Indeed, as the Old Post Office is the second tallest building in DC you can clearly see the White House from its higher floors. Now is winning this prime piece of historic real estate situated within earshot of the White House (and the Reagan Building) on the anniversary of Reagan's birth an auspicious sign for Trump? That he's walking in Reagan's footsteps and is on his way to the presidency? That now in the 16th month of his historic campaign (which started on 16th day of June) he's going to win 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue like he won the Old Post Office project down the street? With Trump defying the laws of political gravity and rising in the polls again I wouldn't bet against it.
1300 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE AND 13 DAYS TO ELECTION DAY
The Ronald Reagan Building
As the Ronald Reagan Building at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue is just up the street from the new Trump International Hotel yesterday's official opening on October 26th was 13 days from Election Day (see). Strangely, the number of days separating Reagan's election on November 4, 1980 from this Election Day is 13,154 (see). Moreover, from Reagan's inaugural on January 20, 1981 to the inaugural this January is 13,150 days (see). And lastly, on the day when Donald Trump was born Ronald Reagan was in his 12,913th day on this earth (see). By the way, it was in the 13th month of Trump's campaign at the Republican National Convention that he officially became the GOP nominee (see and see).
