    This article from Faux news is a real turn around for them. Even they are expressing some reservations over money flowing into the Trump organizations coffers from our tax dollars. While the charges seem not only inflated, they were charged when the club was closed and Trump had not visited it.
    Ever hear about the Emoluments Clause ?
    It probably doesn't matter to the cult members.

    Trump’s Bedminster golf club charged taxpayers $1.1M for Secret Service even while closed during pandemic: report
    President Trump's luxury properties have charged the U.S. government more than $1.1 million since he took office – billing taxpayers for room rentals at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club this spring while it was closed due to coronavirus, a new document show.
    The documents, which include receipts and invoices from Trump's businesses, were released Thursday by the Secret Service after The Washington Post filed a public-records lawsuit.
    Trump, himself, never visited the club while it was closed, but his daughter Ivanka Trump and her family purportedly visited the sprawling estate at least once in April to celebrate Passover, the Post reported. During that time, both Washington, D.C., and New Jersey had imposed strict "stay-at-home" orders due to the spread of coronavirus.
    The newly-released documents show that the Bedminster property charged the Secret Service $17,000 a month to rent a three-bedroom cottage near Trump's own villa. The rate -- which comes to about $567 a night -- is unusually high, according to a scan of similar real estate listings in the area.
    In all, The Washington Post reported that the Secret Service paid to stay in Bedminster for more than 200 days when Trump was not even on the property. A similar trend took place at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida.

    How many concessions did we take under Obama?
    Why our union would support Biden over Trump is confusing to say the least.....
    Nationalizing? That would be Socializing us Slave. That would be some of the "free stuff" you posted displeasure of time and again.....Our tax dollars at work. Tax dollars given to a company that hasn't been able to make ends meet for many years or significantly reduce their debt. Poor management of this company is to blame for that Slave and I checked the BOD list over the years and Obama's name was no where to be found. You can now swell your chest with pride knowing that you are subsidizing our own employment.

    Quite a few Unions have walked away from the Orange one. They see him for the con man that he is.......

    There is another thread concerning the discussion of the loan.

    You ask about concessions while Obama was President. Is that the fault of the company management, the banks or greed ?
    It certainly wasn't political.

    However, since you mentioned what Obama gave labor. How about several hundred thousand jobs saved.

    Thanks for saving the auto industry, President Obama
    As the Obama administration's record moves into the history books, I thought it appropriate to give one last thank you to President Barack Obama and his team for their work in keeping the U.S. auto industry alive and thriving. It's not dramatics or partisan rhetoric to say that their efforts made a big difference.
    So what did the taxpayer have to invest to get this return? With more than a million jobs at stake and reputable estimates that a domestic auto collapse would cost government between $16 billion to $48 billion a year, the Treasury committed to spend $80 billion in loans, equity and other forms of aid.

    It's also a Donald Trump thread.

    We had Obama who took our votes. I'm sure he knew of Hoffa's 20,000 YRC Teamsters ready to go down.
    I would hope so. Hoffa personally made the rounds for Obama when Obama campaigned. I even shook Hoffa hand on our dock. All he said to me was "Obama".

    Trump is in the GOP...not a guy going to unions for votes.

    If Obama helped I'd think it was by dealing with his bank buddies who beat the Hell out of us Teamsters and our companies.
    Trump had no stage show....no lead up....
    One day I just read that the Trump Administration helped us out. No grandstsnding.
    His administration did not have to do it...it goes against GOP principles.....yet he did it.

    Now you guys favor GOP business principles over our own freight guys who needed this.
    Some will complain that Trump will privatize the Post Office.
    Yet look what he did for us freight Teamsters.

    We might look at this as the Democrat way of imposing austerity measures on the whole trucking industry.
    They come in with the banks.
    Chained our necks.....and reduced pensions and payrates and imposed rules to make us work harder for less.
    Democrats.....bringerers of austerity measures....just like the Obama administration did to Ukraine.
    They did it in YRC.
    UPS.
    ABF.
    The votes didn't matter...just like the Trump victory didn't matter.

    And it went throughout the whole industry....for the banks.

    Socialism is a good thing now eh Slave?

    Nothing changed with me. You didn't hear condemnation. What you heard were the chuckles over the blatent hypocrisy.

    His Administration didn't have to do it?National security Slave. That big war machine that keeps chugging along. YRC and Crowley Logistics. YRC the carrier for our military supply chain. Can you imagine what a nightmare it would be trying to fill that void?

    Did you miss the mind numbing speeches the Orange Offender gave telling America how much he loved Unions? He used us as props to sell himself. Don the con.
