Let's just hope his attention span doesn't diminish further and result in him refusing to visit the hurricane and dropping a nuke on Denmark.


Wouldn't worry hes moved on now to getting everyone to go to his own resort for the next G7 summit.

To be fair, he is insisting it isn't anything to do with profiteering; just that his resort is the best place to hold it.
But the president claimed he won’t profit off the event. “In my opinion I’m not going to make any money,” Trump said. “I don’t want to make money. I don’t care about making money.”

Who'd have thunk it?

He's probably correct, he'll lose money as that is his greatest talent.

True. It is definitely a trivial thing that cheers me up that I am more financially successful than Donald Trump*!

I think it may be the truth inadvertently slipping out though, as suggested above: he's always had enough money that it's not about making more - I think for him ego is the driver, not cash.

I'd say both. It seems a common driver with wealthy people that they need to make more and more money. And, of course, if you have enough money to start with it tends (unless you are Trump) to be relatively easy to make more.

Remember - he is eye-wateringly insecure so he will always want to be making more money than some perceived rival (who probably couldn't care less about their relative wealth). And the fact that he loses money must also rankle badly. I think he cares more about making money than anything else apart from his awareness that everybody thinks he is useless. Becoming president must have made that very clear to him in ways that didn't apply before.

No, it's cash. What about his presidency makes you think he isn't interested in enriching himself in every way possible? The only way he hasn't taken money is donating the salary.

ego and cash are inextricably linked to trump, he once created an alter ego named John Barron, and spoke in a barely disguised voice to Forbes claiming (actually provenly lying) that Trump was worth. a lot more than they reported in the US rich list
All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

Disagree, sort of. It's the ego that drives him; cash is just the way of keeping score.

He loves money and hates Obama. He's as simple as that.

If he really didn't want to make money from hosting G7 he'd public suggest donating it to some worth charity - I dunno one like RAICES ?? ;)

Or maybe host it somewhere more suitable that he doesn't personally own. Bit of a wild, out there suggestion, I know.

Not sure when the next G7 meeting is, but it would be ironic is it was hit by a hurricane (if hosted in Florida). He would try an use it as a reason they should nuke hurricanes.

What about the millions living on the floridean coastline that could be seriously affected? Worth a trashing of his resort there?

More seriously it's now a category 5 with 190mph winds at its eyewall. It's the 2nd largest / most powerful since they recorded such information. It's also unusual in that nothing it has hit so far caused the power of the storm to reduce. Most hurricanes lose strength and never get it back but this one has maintained its strength. The researchers will be studying the measurements of this one for quite some time I reckon.

Sorry for the off topic bit. I get the point about the resort being trashed probably affects trump which is good. It'll stop any use as g7 venue too hopefully.

I wouldn't get too cheered up by the thought of Mar a Lago being trashed. It will just result in a lot of relief funding being diverted to urgently repair Mar a Lago rather than homes etc. Once upon a time, this comment would have been a joke. Now, sadly, it is what will probably happen.
