TOPIC: Ireland welcomes Trump
#190048

Ireland welcomes Trump 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Later today, DT will fly to Shannon Airport in the west of Ireland, where he will meet the Irish president.

Trump International owns a golf complex in County Clare (near Shannon) and the entourage will stay there for a couple of nights - playing golf on Friday, before departing for the US.

Great publicity for his Irish investment - where he was keen to host the Irish president (Leo Varadkar): Leo preferred the neutral airport venue.

On Thursday, DT will attend military celebrations in France - returning to Clare that evening, for a lavish dinner at the golf club.

Eire will lose most from the possible no deal Brexit...Leo will be trying to get his 15 minutes of fame now,before he is evicted from office....

...my prediction...eire will be the next out of the crumbling eu...

...I notice the estate agent was a welcome guest of DT ....perhaps he was asking him to value his golfing holdings?...

I can't believe we had to vote twice. First we said No then it was a Yes. Funnily enough I haven't met many who voted Yes, nor had my customers. I have a property and and a pub in NI also.

Also we have a very good trade deal with USA but it could be better and bigger. Yes Eire should hold a referendum also.

Good afternoon SM.

Some in Dublin are talking about leaving the EU - and the RoI joining up with Northern Ireland.

Both are extremely unlikely, simply for economic reasons.

Every month, NI costs our Exchequer £1 billion - to pay its bills!

And RoI has a National Debt in excess of €200 billion - and couldn't afford the £12 billion, a year.


Together they'd be an absolute disaster.

One is barely ticking over, paying interest on its Debt: The other has to be subsidised.

Re:Ireland welcomes Trump 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
In English language communications, 'Eire' is incorrect.

Since the country on the south of the island was renamed 'Ireland' - by the 1937 constitution.


Later, it became a republic - and in now usually called the Republic of Ireland, to distinguish it from Northern Ireland.


Just so you know, SM.

I like to say ROI, same say Eire. I don't care what you call it.

I also have a small property in NI no one really cares just a minority.

Is Barney doing Donald Trump's PR?

If so he needs to inform him that the Republic isn't part of the UK as he seems to think Theresa May is the PM.

The fucker obviously has no idea where he is.

great publicity for his investment? Does it lose money hand over fist like his Scottish golf course?

Is there any business Trump has started that hasn't failed?

Despite his blatant daily lies (a good tactic that- it immures people from the porkies - very Adolf..maybe he did read that horrendously boring book)..his Biggest One was of course that he "started" by borrowing $1M which he claims he paid back..absolute fabrication as he actually inherited a $400M property empire yet if he had just sat on the property empire he would actually be worth, it's estimated, well over $5Billion today.

He's actually whittled it all away and lost money hand over first and it's claimed by insiders that he has never ever been a Billionaire and is probably worth around $US200M but is also loaded with debt like his ghastly son-in-law.

But no doubt he'll leave office (or die in office) an incredibly wealthy man along with all his family members who are scooping up his droppings.

The Trumps are making former South American dictators look like amateurs. A lot of people admire that.

Good morning GM...I'll leave Brexit alone...I think the Venerable King wants to shoot the messenger

There will be huge changes on the Emerald Isle...let us just hope the good people there continue to be happy.

Hedda - Trump Tunberry in Scotland isn't losing money; why make it up?

The Ailsa Course is regarded as one of the best golf courses in the world; it has hosted The Open four times, and will again.

Before the Trump acquisition, I played it. Now, it's virtually impossible to get a tee time - and very expensive.

Doonbeg's proximity to Shannon Airport is helping its development - and its fast becoming one of Ireland's main golf destinations.

Trump Tunberry is near Prestwich Airport.


No, Hedda - Trump's golf investments in Europe are doing fine - sorry...

At least Trump, had an idea for the Irish backstop a wall.

I believe we need a checkpoint like they have on the Canadian border, so people can still commute to NI and vice versa along with goods and respecting the Leave vote or to get simply to get home.

If you were travelling to NI for work then all they probably would need is place is of residence, number plate, name of the work place. Which all can be checked in seconds.

I know many footpaths that can you take you in to NI, so maybe a wall then would be needed ? A lot of people don't a want a border at all because of fear it could cause further friction, I doubt will happen.

I like to hear SM view on the backstop, he seems to be the only one on here with a balanced view on things.

After playing a second round of golf at his Clare course, DT today left Ireland for Washington - on Air Force One.

Some protests were made, mainly about his climate change stance - and the Trump Blimp went over to Dublin for them, from London.

Doonbeg - the golf complex - was bought by him about 5 years ago for £8 million. It's now valued at €25 million.

Climate change stance - seems like the liberals have been brain washed, weather does Keep changing every year. I'm off to Texas in 3 weeks, for a friend's reunion. If I see any snow then I will change my mind.

Artic sea ice and glaciers have reduced by 3.5%/4.1%.

Every year, over the past half century.

The oceans are rising, as a result, at the fastest rate for two millennia.

No, there's no such thing as climate change!¡

No mention in the piece of Green House Gases - at the highest level in 3 million years

Or of the UN's serious warnings about the consequences and most damaging GHG.

Carbon dioxide. This has untold negative effects on our oceans, ecosystems and atmosphere.


Or are the UN scientists mistaken?

Getting the US taxpayer to pay for your visits to your own (alleged) properties is some feat with nary a squeak from his rusted-on fan base.
They reckon it's cost $US150M to date for a man who criticsed Barack Obama's limited golf trips while in office.

Trump Uses State Visit to Pimp Money-Losing Golf Course
He also told Ireland’s prime minister to build a border wall, because he’s not very bright.
