$0 to answer your question. If you have proof otherwise, please post it.

However, as usual, you are rambling senselessly about things, not base on any factual information, but out of a hatred of the person that won the last election. It just shows how irrational you are. :thumbsup

Unless you have solid evidence otherwise, I would guess that the Trump cut, whatever that is, is zero or possibly a little less.

The difference between this and past presidents is that we got the Saudi money. Past president gave up pallets full of money in exchange for a signed agreement which we never got.

gettaclue/jimbo: The fact I started with "I wonder..." means this is not a court trial but a freaking forum.


and yes I do wonder about that amount and if it was payment in dollars or real estate deals etc. this man is all about acquiring (although he can't help but then squander) wealth for himself.

Salty, you're blabbering on about things you have no idea about, and in the process I hope you're making yourself look dumber than you really are.

But there is no evidence that President Trump is benefiting in any way from his position s President. Foreign dignitaries are staying at his hotels, but they were doing that under Obama and Bush.

I not only don't trust this guy but I suspect him of evil at every turn, such is his reputation for gaining a twopence from any exchange including the coins on his granny's eyelids.

WATCH Trump on whether Jamal Khashoggi is dead: 'certainly looks that way'

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has heard an alleged audio recording of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi's murder inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, according to a senior Turkish official.


Speaking exclusively and on condition of anonymity to ABC News, the official claimed the recording was played in meetings in Turkey on Wednesday, and that Pompeo was given a transcript of the recordings.

Separately, ABC News has also learned that Turkish officials believe that Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate following a struggle that lasted eight minutes and that they believe he died of strangulation.

The White House referred questions to the State Department which denied Pompeo had heard the recording and had not seen a transcript.

"Secretary Pompeo has neither heard a tape nor has he seen a transcript related to Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance," said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert

Yesterday, on his way back from Istanbul, Pompeo was asked if he had heard the audio.

"I don’t have anything to say about that," he said.

President Trump has been publicly asking to hear the recording. Pompeo met with the president at the White House on Thursday morning to brief him on his visit to Turkey and Saudi Arabia, where he met with Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman...



..."I still want to wish and hope that he is alive and so on," Kislakci said. "Unfortunately, this kind of news which related with his killing in a barbaric way is coming out."

Khashoggi, who had been living in the U.S., went missing more than two weeks ago after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. He was visiting the consulate to file paperwork for his upcoming wedding, and his fiancee waited for him in a car outside the consulate.

Khashoggi worked as an opinion columnist at The Washington Post newspaper, and has written critically of the Saudi government and its crown prince, Mohammad Bin Salman. Khashoggi warned of renewed efforts to silence the free press in the Middle East, and his final column, published on Wednesday, was titled “"What the Arab world needs most is free expression."
Then again...

Again, you're blabbering. Never post after dinner with Mr. Daniels. You can't even read straight.

Please keep posting Salty as every time you do, you just further prove my point.
