trump golf club

The framed copy of Time Magazine was hung up in at least four of President Trump’s golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.

But that wasn’t true.

The Time cover is a fake.

There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.

President Trump will loom over the U.S. Women’s Open golf championship this weekend in Bedminster, N.J., whether he’s there or not.

The tournament tees off Thursday at the Trump National Golf Club — despite the protests of women’s rights activists, who urged the organizers to move the event somewhere else.

Now the best female golfers in the world may share the stage with the president. Although Trump’s schedule has not yet been confirmed, tournament organizers have built a special glass-enclosed skybox overlooking the 16th tee so the president could watch the competition on what’s said to be one of his favorite courses.

Judge Orders Trump-Owned Golf Resort to Pay Millions
The decision is the first court judgment against a company owned by Mr. Trump since he became president last month.
By Barry Meier and Susanne Craig

In a highly unusual turn of events for a sitting president, a federal judge in Florida on Wednesday ordered a golf resort owned by President Trump to pay $5.7 million for refusing to refund deposits to members who wanted to resign from the club.

In his ruling, the judge said that Mr. Trump, by sending a letter in late 2012 denying access to members who wanted to resign from the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter — a process that could take years — had set off a contract clause that should have resulted in an immediate refund of their membership fees. Instead, the money was withheld….

Wednesday’s ruling — by Judge Kenneth Marra of Federal District Court in West Palm Beach, an appointee of President George W. Bush’s — calls for the club to pay $4.85 million in withheld fees to 65 club members involved in the lawsuit, plus an additional $925,000 in interest and other costs. As a result, those members will receive refunds of $35,000 to $200,000, depending on their level of membership in the club.

Flash mob of 200 spells out 'RESIST!' at Trump golf club
A flash mob of about 200 demonstrators descended upon the Trump National Golf Club near Los Angeles Saturday morning to express their disdain for Donald Trump and convey a message to Americans: Resist his presidency and his policies.
By ABC News

The protesters, part of the group “Indivisible San Pedro,” spelled out the word “RESIST!” in 30-foot-tall letters in a public park on the grounds of the golf club, located in Rancho Palos Verdes, reported ABC affiliate KABC.
The group has also been vocal about urging the president to release his tax returns.
It took the flash mob – which consisted of children – about 15 minutes to form the word, after which they sang “God Bless America,” according to The Los Angeles Times.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies were reportedly called to the scene and watched from clubhouse balcony, but they did not intervene or arrest anyone.

The Man Behind Trump’s Voter-Fraud Obsession
How Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, plans to remake America through restrictive voting and immigration laws.

For Kobach, the question of citizenship, and who has a rightful claim to it, is at the heart of his lawsuits and legislation. Years before Donald Trump began talking about building a wall, the fate of America’s white majority was a matter of considerable interest to Kobach, who once agreed with a caller to his radio show that a rise in Latino immigration could lead to the “ethnic cleansing” of whites and has written scores of laws across the country to crack down on undocumented immigration. He told The Associated Press in May that he met Trump through his son Donald Trump Jr., with whom he has a mutual friend. Kobach has since become close to the White House inner circle, including the president and his chief strategist, Steve Bannon. Two weeks after the election, Kobach met with Trump at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., where the president-elect was auditioning potential members of his cabinet before the press, and was photographed holding a white paper outlining a “Kobach Strategic Plan for First 365 Days.” Though partly obscured, what could be read of the document was a bullet-pointed wish-list of right-wing policies that included “extreme vetting” and tracking of “all aliens from high-risk areas,” reducing “intake of Syrian refugees to zero,” deporting a “record number of criminal aliens in the first year” and the “rapid build” of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In Scotland, they hated Trump before hating Trump was cool
The residents of Aberdeen in Scotland have been opposed to Donald Trump for years. It's where the petition to ban him from the UK first started.
By Tim Chester

As we get ready to leave the café, owner Steve Bothwell comes over. His views on Donald Trump don’t leave much room for interpretation.

“He’s a cunt,” he says. “You don’t come to Scotland and treat people like shit, take people’s homes away and you don’t destroy the Scottish landscape.”
