Could it be that Donald Trump gave us the key to understanding his administration back in September 2015 when he was talking about the Iran Nuclear deal?
“We have a horrible contract, but we do have a contract,” Mr. Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I have all my life — I love to buy bad contracts where … people go bust, and I make those contracts good. This is a perfect example of taking over a bad contract. I will find something in that contract that will be very, very well-scrutinized by us, and I think they will not be able to do it, whatever it may be.”
“We have an agreement, it’s a horrible agreement. I will make that agreement so tough and if they break it, they will have hell to pay,” he said.
All Contracts are Negotiable
We have a deal with Donald Trump, and it looks like a bad deal. If feels like we got sucked in a Trump Tower Las Vegas timeshare contract. Trump Presidency Inc. isn’t delivering what was promised. The salesperson lied to us, the hidden fees are outrageous , insiders are still getting the best rooms at the best times, we get excuse after excuse and outrageous hour long presentations that make little sense, the maintenance is shoddy and frankly we’re sick and tired of the acts and the property.
Remember, a Trump strategy is to get into contract, then do his best to make it as unpleasant as possible so he can renegotiate or be bought out. Isn’t it obvious what he’s doing? He wants us to make him an offer to get out of this contract. So let’s do it without shame. It’s no different than realizing that you were sold a bill of goods when you bought that time share and you agree to sell it back at pennies on the dollar. At least you avoid the quarterly maintenance fees. You just grit your teeth, write the check and are done with it.
Congress can start the buyout process by introducing legislation that would pay a supplemental retirement bonus of ten billion dollars to any President of the United States who resigned between May 1 and May 31, of 2017. The offer should expire soon on June 1. So decide now to take advantage of this terrific deal! Will only be available to the next President who calls.
Why wait until May? Two reasons. I think we can expect a counteroffer from Trump so we need to leave some time for negotiation. He probably will tell us the Presidency is worth a lot more than ten billion dollars to him. In which case, we can find out how much he intends to profit from his position. Second, if we made it effective immediately he may just pack up and return to New York in the dead of night. And I want to do a walk through with him before he leaves so we can verify that all the property is intact and the china, silver and light bulbs accounted for.
It seems like a small price to pay to get out of a bad contract.
