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.

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 really doubt his staff ´waited too long´...they set this stuff up months in advance and put people on the ground ahead of time to work with the local polezi to set up routes and security...

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.

But make no mistake, the mob of leftists destroying Western civilization are the same people be they in DC, Portland, Chicago, London, Hamburg, you name it. Frankly its startling, this is a global Dr. Evil movement.

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.

Whether it´s Mohammed becoming the most popular baby name, or one in 10 babies in England being Muslim or the fact that halal meat is being served in Pizza Hut, a Muslim story always tends to generate more heat than light. Indeed, Islamophobia is often perpetuated by fear and a sense that Muslims are taking over our jobs, our homes and our lives, thus leading to a polarizing society and the so-called clash of civilizations.

The IRS has finally agreed to a process for deciding on the last remaining nonprofit application that was snared in the Obama administration’s tea party targeting, more than four years after the illegal singling-out of conservative groups for special scrutiny was first revealed. In court filings this week, the IRS acceded to rules governing how the tax agency will decide whether to grant nonprofit status to the Texas Patriots Tea Party, which has been awaiting a decision for years. The agreement doesn’t mean the group will be approved, but it sets up a process for making a decision. “This does provide a path

Girls from Minnesota were taken to Michigan for "treatment" by their parents.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Donald Trump, who has averaged 40% job approval since his inauguration, received approval ratings of 50% or higher in 17 states in the first half of 2017. Residents in an equal number of states gave him approval ratings below 40%. In 16 states, his ratings ranged between 40% and 49%. Consistent with the broader geographic patterns of Republican strength across the country, some of Trump´s highest approval ratings tend to be in Southern, Plains and Mountain West states. His lowest ratings are primarily in Northeast and West Coast states. The results are based on Gallup Daily

President Trump, in clumsy responses to interview questions, has warned Special Counsel Robert Mueller that he´d best not expand his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election too far. It is strange, to put it no more strongly, to read such threats against the investigator by a president whose adminisitration is being investigated. It carries weight, for Trump has the authority to fire Mueller, but to do so would do incalculable damage to his presidency. Perhaps the only way for Trump to prevent an ever-expanding investigation, to keep things focused narrowly on questions of alleged collusion with Russia, and to

Returning after nearly three weeks in Europe, I am astonished by the prevailing political currents in the countries historically closest to Canada. In the United Kingdom, the government went for an increased majority against an absurd opposition leader who admires Irish and some Islamic terrorists and whose political heroes are Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. As readers know, the result was a loss of the majority and the reconstitution of the government with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party. This was the arch-Protestant political movement of Northern Ireland, which has fortunately settled down a good deal since the piping

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today warned President Trump against firing either Attorney General Jeff Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he plans to introduce bipartisan judicial review legislation to protect the former FBI director and future special counsels.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama
