Trump Brags About Using “Other People’s Money” Amidst Reports Of Illegal Charity Spending [VIDEO] https://youtu.be/WCpZyVtiz0s

Donald Trump bragged Tuesday there’s “nothing like” using other people’s money, hours after a report said he used more than $250,000 from his charitable organization to litigate lawsuits against his business interests. Trump, while calling for building safe zones in Syria financed by Gulf states, vaunted the benefits of doing business with “OPM.”
“It’s called OPM. I do it all the time in business. It’s called other people’s money,” Trump said. “There’s nothing like doing things with other people’s money because it takes the risk — you get a good chunk out of it and it takes the risk.”
His comments came on the heels of a Washington Post report published earlier Tuesday, which called attention to Trump’s funneling of contributions from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to charities in order to settle lawsuits against Trump. Trump has only sparsely contributed to his foundation. Instead, the foundation is largely funded by outside donors — not Trump himself.
How many violent crimes / attempted murders happened at Northwoods or Citadel mall in the decade 1985 to 1995? How many from 2005 to 2015?
I would contend that the situation would, in fact, be quantifiably worse in the latter decade. I am sure all sorts of crap happened as bad or worse in the past, but just not at these two malls. And that is the subject if this story.
Not sure if you follow local news much, but the sexual assault at a party at a CoC frat house 2-3 weeks ago seems to be the thing that drove this. Of course, one of the guys had cocaine and marijuana in his room too.
There must be a better way to handle this, rather than outright banning alcohol related events for greek life. I agree that knee jerk reactions in these types of situations typically end up causing more controversy. Hell, I was at Clemson during the whole Tucker Hipps ordeal and the administration reacted horribly. They punished greek life in its entirety just to send a message because of actions of one fraternity. Although it could've been handled differently, needless to say, it was a horrific incident that required some sort of action. Hazing at Clemson had always been bad, the issue was deep-seeded, but the Tucker Hipps death put a spotlight on it.
What exactly have COFC fraternities done to justify this ban on alcohol? Is there a Tucker Hipps incident that I'm unaware of? Maybe the full statement from McConnell states some hard evidence or data, but what's happening at COFC that isn't at every other college campus around the nation?
The real gateway drug? Alcohol. Weed has been lambasted as THE gateway drug by anyone and everyone in law-enforcement. A gateway drug is a legal drug that leads to illegal drugs and we must crack down on this substance. I have heard the argument time and again that weed leads to hard drugs but I submit that alcohol (and other prescriptions) leads to any and all illicit drugs. I am not suggesting we outlaw alcohol but it must be recognized that alcohol leads to various cocaine derivatives and opiates more than any other drug in the universe.
look what a desolate place citadel mall has turned in to partly due to crime and unruly behavior of groups making it an undesirable place to be and go with family.
Spartan, I'll type this slowly because I realize your comprehension lags: 1- How many people have been shot in the back by Charleston City police? (hint-North Charleston police are not members of the Charleston police force.) and 2-If by being dicks you mean enforcing laws broken by belligerents like you, I prefer business as usual.
Ron I agree with the observation, but they can only hire from the pool of applicants. Most of the people you or I would want to see in that job don't want it.
Within the next twenty years, most malls will be out of business anyway.
Crime was vastly worse in general in all categories when we were teenagers. TigerLily75 has a short memory. This is not to say that the Northwoods Mall management is off-base; they know their clientele and are fighting a losing battle with the traditional mall concept as it is.
I'd say maybe don't fill your hiring pool with people that barely made C's in high school and are looking for a position of power to take out their personal insecurities on society.
"Well, when we were younger, we didn't cause the kind of trouble that teens these days are causing."
There have always been asshole teenagers (and asshole adults). The world is not any worse than it ever was. We just have 24/7 worldwide access to the assholery now. Plus your perspective of your own behavior as a teenager is drastically different from everyone elses perspective of your behavior. Your sentiments of nostalgia are a trick your brain is playing on you.
SC. does not have the drugs to carry out the death penalty??? A simple .22 bullet to the temple would cost a lot less and easy to purchase.
I'm curious. Has anyone on the staff of the City Paper ever been to Northwoods Mall? Do you even know where it is?
Well, when we were younger, we didn't cause the kind of trouble that teens these days are causing. Fights, guns, shoplifting loads of high cost items, cursing at & disrespecting adults.. if teens today acted like teens did 20 Yeats ago, they wouldn't need an adult escort...
GOP doesn't want PC unless it applies to them:
People have a problem with what Dabo said about Martin Luther King's dream? Well, maybe it just works against their narrative of America to acknowledge the progress that we have made and are continuing to make. Or, maybe they are just petty and trifling.
maybe try not shooting citizens in the back and being dicks to the people who pay you. #illuminateyourdamnselves
And there's more.
