Donald Trump ´has trouble finding
hotel room at G20 summit´

Independent [UK], by Mythili Sampathkumar

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/7/2017 4:30:50 AM

Donald Trump has reportedly had trouble getting a hotel room for the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. His team apparently waited too long to book accommodations for the President and his travelling staff and were told none of the major hotels had vacancies, Buzzfeed reported. The local newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt reported that the Four Seasons had to turn him away as they were full. In an ironic twist for the hotel chain owner, every luxury hotel in town seemed to be booked up. There do not appear to be any Trump-owned properties in the northern German city. Buzzfeed did some digging and

There is more to this story. I suspect German hotels were being nasty and uncooperative.

In that Merkel has some nasty payback going on, it ´´could´´ be true. We´ll never know for sure, is my guess.

FTA: This is not the first time a US official has had trouble with hotels in Germany.

What kind of people do make certain there are enough accommodations for the visiting dignitaries? The more I read about the German people, the less respect I have for them. And I thought the French were snots.

I´m reminded of the old joke about the guy trying to check into a hotel with no vacancies:

"If the President showed up, would you have a room for him?"

"Of course!"

"Well, he ain´t coming, so I´ll take that room."

So the Secret Service members never checked out the room before the president arrived. Therefore not even the. SS knew where the room was and did not escort PRESIDENT Trump to his room. If so then we need to hire responsible people who do their job as SS.

If there is one thing DT knows, it is hospitality and hotels. While the definition of problem is in question, could it have been as simple as hitting wrong floor number?

Would think the Germans are responsible for providing rooms since they are also responsible for security. This smells like a manufactured story where they are trying to make the Trump administration look inept.

First, the misleading title could lead one to think the president "lost his way" at his hotel.

Second, the president of the United States doesn´t just show up. The secret service checks out his venues way ahead.And there would be a paper/email trail of the arrangements with the hotel.

As a must read, has this article been verefied for its veracity?

Totally agree with #1. I suspect the Merkel dame is behind this. Merkel is that ugly thing who wears the same non fitting beige pants with same red jacket.
In the group shot, the Merkel thing parks herself in front, our President way to the side as if the US is some little country and May is all the way in the back. No one puts a US president so far from the host. Might have been done due to a tip from the Mulatto!

HH does not have a Fours Seasons any longer, it has been sold some time ago. Hamburg is a lefty town on the par with Moscow. Smart of the First Lady to remain inside. The no class trash might pelt her with something.

Chances are the hotel reservations for all the foreign leaders who were expected to attend the long scheduled G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany were made long before President Trump was elected.

In that respect there is little doubt that when the Department of State made the reservations for the US delegation, that they expected that Hillary Clinton would be leading the US Delegation. Don´t be surprised if Obama Administration operatives did not cancel the reservations after President Trump was elected and before they left office.

This disruption is on the wimpy German Government. They knew that the President of the USA was going to attend the G-20 Summit in Hamburg with the First Lady. By not ensuring that the President and First Lady had appropriate and safe accommodations in Hamburg the German Government essentially insulted the USA.

International media is reporting that the First Lady was unable to leave her accommodations today to attend the scheduled events for the world leaders spouses that all the other spouses were able to attend, after the German Government advised the USA that they could not guarantee the safety of her motorcade from violent anarchist demonstrators. All that is not good.

What ever happened to the old courtesy of maintaining a "presidential suite" for unexpected but important guests? And what about the Bridle Suite? Or how about bumping someone of lesser importance to make room for the Trumps. If the Hamburgers and the German government choose to disrespect our President, then they should know that we can also disrespect them, and a great deal more severely.

Don´t we have a US base in Hamburg? Or an embassy? I don´t buy it that the staff in charge of booking travel accommodations for the President left it until the last minute. That is their whole reason for existence, so they aren´t going to leave it.

What I do buy is that the Germans are pulling a fast and nasty one. Merkel is too stupid to realize that this is making her look really bad.

WASHINGTON – President Trump could stay in the Paris climate accord if certain “conditions” are met, according to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. “I think under the right conditions,” Tillerson told CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday on the chance of the US staying in the agreement. “The president said he’s open to finding those conditions where we can remain engaged with others on what we all agree is still a challenging issue.” Trump pledged on June 1 that the US would withdraw from the agreement because it hinders American businesses and he would seek a better deal.

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An Oregon parent wanted details about school employees getting paid to stay home. A retired educator sought data about student performance in Louisiana. And college journalists in Kentucky requested documents about the investigations of employees accused of sexual misconduct. Instead, they got something else: sued by the agencies they had asked for public records. Government bodies are increasingly turning the tables on citizens who seek public records that might be embarrassing or legally sensitive.

If it weren´t for their sick obsession with race, the national media would have next to nothing to talk about. The October issue of The Atlantic magazine features a long essay by Ta-Nehisi Coates on President Trump being "The First White President," a lament about the shame Americans should feel in electing a white man after a black one. It´s been heralded by Coates´ media peers as a "blockbuster" and something to "admire," since it goes on and on about racism and nothing else. Legitimate reasons voters had for choosing Trump are legion (the suffocating politically-correct culture, immigration, Hillary Clinton´s laugh) but Coates

Feminist politics turned a corner with the final defeat of Hillary Clinton. You can feel it in and between the lines of her blame-game book, “What Happened.” The exuberance of her supporters, which buoyed her in the campaign to elect the first woman president, has dissipated. (Snip)“Slick Willy” was an alley cat, but he was a natural at the game of politics. The Clintons were always a package marketed as “buy one, get one free,” and fervent feminists revealed themselves hypocrites by supporting her supporting him.

The younger Sandusky, who worked as a corrections officer at Rockview State Correctional Institution in Bellefonte, was facing a trial this month when he agreed to the plea deal, which requires him to serve at least three to six years in state prison.

President Trump had dinner Wednesday night with Chuck and Nancy, as he familiarly calls the Democratic leaders he apparently hopes will become his new governing partners. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi left the repast and promptly announced that they had reached a deal with the president over codifying DACA. According to the Democrats, they had agreed with the president to seek legislation that would provide amnesty for illegal immigrants once covered under DACA in exchange for unspecified border-security measures, but not funding for “the wall.” Trump denied there was actually a deal, but confirmed the basic structure of a prospective

If President Trump reverses his campaign promises and supports a DACA amnesty then within the span of a few days he would do to himself what the combined efforts of the Democratic National Committee, the Republican establishment, the Clinton campaign, and an openly hostile media couldn’t do: knee-cap his presidency and separate himself from his base. Amnesty is where Republican careers go to die. Just ask Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) whose own 2016 presidential run was stillborn because he backed the 2012 “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill after promising voters in 2010 he would do no such thing.

It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes: About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,”

While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as

ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and

A woman police believe was pregnant was among five people killed and 13 wounded in Chicago shootings Friday into Saturday morning. The woman was one of four victims slain in a rifle attack in the Brighton Park neighborhood Friday night, police said. The quadruple homicide happened about 8:40 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Fairfield Avenue, police said. Three men and a woman were inside a vehicle when someone inside a white SUV opened fire on them with a rifle, police said. Responding police officers found their bodies inside the vehicle and they were pronounced dead on the scene. The

The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,

People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a

Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community

Almost no commentator, no reviewer, has mentioned the most newsworthy fact about Hillary Clinton´s latest memoir—which is the near total lack of anything actually newsworthy in the book. With What Happened, Clinton would at last "let down her hair," Simon & Schuster´s publicists loudly proclaimed before the book´s publication. And that was the line dutifully repeated by reporter after reporter, as though it were a fact. As though, coming from Clinton´s people, it didn´t need to be checked or reported with even the slight distancing of "Hillary Clinton says she´s let down her hair in her new book." But then,

The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.

ST. LOUIS • About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson in the Central West End late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up. There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time. A total of 9 police officers had been reported injured as of 9 p.m., including one officer with a dislocated shoulder and an officer with a possible broken jaw, Acting Police Chief Lawrence O´Toole said shortly after midnight
