The current occupant of the White House has been referred to by this writer as:
- The 2016 Popular Vote Loser (Hillary Clinton received almost three million more votes from the people)
- The KKK endorsed Candidate (because they supported him in 2016)
- Individual One (stemming from the Michael Cohen case)
- Tiny (Stormy Daniels description)
Well, the term deadbeat could be added to the above list because Mr. Trump (more specifically his various committees) has not been paying the bills they have incurred.
First, the government of Washington D.C. is stating that the Trump Inaugural Committee (along with the Republican Congress) has not paid about seven million dollars in inaugural expenses.
Second, according to the Center for Public Integrity, ten United States cities (El Paso, Tucson, Spokane, Mesa, Eau Claire (Wisconsin), Billings, Erie, Lebanon (Ohio), Green Bay, and Burlington) are owed a combined $841,219.84 for security and other logistical services provided to the Trump team.
El Paso, the city that witnessed one of the domestic terrorist mass shooting tragedies this last Saturday with 22 people dead, has the largest bill of all and with late fees on top of the original $470,417.05 bill, the outstanding cost is now $569,204.63.
Do they have to pay the White House Deadbeat to mourn with them with he visits on Wednesday, August 7, 2019?
This should not surprise the people that paid attention to the campaign of 2016 where various media outlets people in both the Republican (remember Mitt Romneys denunciation of Trump in 2016) and Democratic Parties (remember Hillary Clintons commercials and campaign statements highlighting people not getting compensated) pointed out that the Liar in Chief regularly “stiffed” people and either paid them less than originally invoiced, did not pay them at all, or filed for bankruptcy protection to wipe these debts from his financial ledgers.
When Mr. Trump visits El Paso and Dayton tomorrow, he should not rub salt in their wounds and exploit their mourning by leaving the bill for his visit behind.
