Denver Post Editorial Calls Donald Trump a Liar

The Denver Post minces no words in its editorial yesterday, Lying Donald Trump can’t be trusted, and that needs to stop now.

The president of the United States needs to demand of himself and of his staff that comments presented to the American people can be trusted and supported by legitimate — and not “alternative” — facts.

Without that basic level of trust, the very functioning of our federal government and our nation will be at risk....his actions betray a terrible failing, a deep character flaw within the new president that cannot be excused as campaign bluster.

Americans won’t be led by a man who works through manipulation and falsehood.

The Trump Org needs to reject its latest poppycock idea of opening a Trump hotel in Denver. Not only will it be boycotted, so will properties of local investors in and supporters of the project. Denverites voted overwhelmingly against Trump. Let them try Colorado Springs. Or a bed and breakfast in Alamosa or somewhere similar they can find a few people who won't revolt over the idea.[More...]

Canada, get ready. A Trump hotel hotel in Vancouver is set for its grand opening next month. Better bets: The Four Seasons, Shangri-la, St. Regis, Fairmont, Pan Pacific, l'Hermitage, to name a few.

(Keep in mind most of the hotels are not owned by Trump, he sells his name and sometimes manages them and may own some units in them.)

    Trump's hotel in DC lost 1.1 million in its first few months. I'm surprised as bad his losses seem to be that he'd even think about opening another hotel anywhere.

    since Drumpf's assumption of presidency from bookings by foreign governments - so I understand....
