this is good news

earlier threads discussed how this has become a money making cottage industry at the tax payer expense

https://www.washingtonpost.com...lose-five-locations/

Citing Trump, evangelical agency that resettles refugees to lay off 140 staffers, close five locations

One of the nine U.S. organizations that work with the United Nation’s refugee program announced Wednesday that it will lay off about 140 staff members and close five offices that have resettled more than 25,000 refugees.

In a statement, evangelical relief and development agency World Relief called the decision “a direct result of the recent decision by the Trump Administration,” citing President Trump’s executive order that reduced the number of refugees the United States will admit.

Several of the nine resettlement agencies have launched multimillion-dollar fundraisers to cover the unexpected losses they anticipate from the number of refugees admitted.

The U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program combines partial funding from the federal government to cover the costs of resettling new refugees with money raised by nonprofit agencies. Most of the agencies are religious, including World Relief and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which raise funding from donors and churches and organize volunteers.

For instance, the Episcopal Migration Ministries was expecting $14.2 million from the U.S. State Department and $6.2 million from the Department of Health and Human Services, according to spokeswoman Kendall Martin, and they are working to raise private support. On Feb. 8, Martin said, the Episcopal Church’s executive council gave the agency $500,000 to provide a financial bridge during Trump’s ban.

Even though Trump’s order has faced legal challenges, the courts have not addressed the section that reduces the cap on refugee admissions from 110,000 to 50,000.

The United States has already resettled 34,000 this year, according to Soerens, so fewer than 16,000 additional refugees will be allowed through Sept. 30.

Pretty odd this morning watching CBS News report on what I saw with the Trump presentation was the live yesterday. Distortion and exaggeration by the news media is evident in this broadcast.

Ran into some protesters and asked why they were protesting the President.

"He wants to shut down our borders and not let anyone it."

"Incorrect"

"It is, I read it on the internet"

Yes it will.

I like seeing how President Trump engaged the miners to step forward and say a few words, I like the way President Trump enjoys his job and how he treats them, very relaxed and fun. His enthusiasm is infectious and it has been spreading into the financial markets.


That is a true quality of a leader. To EMPOWER people. I know weve heard from several "uncle trumps" about how great he is at managing/leading his company. Now youre seeing it first hand. You get more bees with honey than vinegar. One of the things steve jobs got wrong.

Ferreting out the mole maybe? Circulate a memo among a group of people and see if it gets out.

If I were Trump, I would be concocting all sorts of crazy shit to weed out the traitors.

Fake news strikes again.

Everyone had to be the first to get it out there without ever taking the time to verify its veracity.

This is going to be so much damn fun to watch...not to mention the icing of at least a felony indictment or two at the end.

Amazing that this President has run an international, multi-billion dollar company for how many years??? You think he hasnt had to deal with people double crossing him before? Once again, theyre viewing him as a rube, and they are going to get their ass handed to them.

Listen to this Mexican presidential candidate Andres Manuel López Obrador.

He is here in Los Angeles campaigning. Think about that a moment. Campaigning in Los Angeles to be Mexican President.

http://www.breitbart.com/calif...s-slam-donald-trump/

Even worse are his arguments that anybody in the world should be able to come to the United States. He should be working so that “everyone” wants to come and live in Mexico.

Obrador:

“I think the wall and the demagoguery of patriotism are no match for the dignity and humanity of the American people,”

“When they want to build a wall to segregate populations, or when the word ‘foreigner’ is used to insult, denigrate and discriminate against our fellow human beings, it goes against humanity, it goes against intelligence and against history,”

“Neither the United States nor the American continent come first. What comes first is to build here on this earth the kingdom of justice and universal brotherhood ,”

sounds like obama

Lopez Obrador also whipped up the crowd by insisting that he would spearhead a move in the United Nations to file human rights violations against the United States.

Underestimating the competition is a sure way to lose.

People, THIS is why Trump is blasting this corrupt, deceitful scum mainstream media right now.

For 8 fucking years, you never heard a GODDAMN PEEP from these assholes when Obama was spending tens, no hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars going on extravagant extended vacations and trips with the family or playing golf 300+ days of his presidency.

Now all of a sudden, one month into the job, they are complaining that Trump's trips are going to cost the taxpayer lots of money? Fuck off! Mad Mad Mad


quote:

...On Friday, President Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

On Saturday, Trump's sons Eric and Donald Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the "Beverly Hills of Dubai."

Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron. And the tiny township of Bedminster, N.J., is preparing for the daunting prospect that the local Trump golf course will serve as a sort of northern White House for as many as 10 weekends a year.

Barely a month into the Trump presidency, the unusually elaborate lifestyle of America's new first family is straining the Secret Service and security officials, stirring financial and logistical concerns in several local communities, and costing far beyond what has been typical for past presidents — a price tag that, based on past assessments of presidential travel and security costs, could balloon into the hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of a four-year term...


Trump family's elaborate lifestyle comes at taxpayer expense
