Ppphhhttt. I was there today at Marsh Harbour. The resort there survived and threw open their doors to house the local residents at no cost.

The press is only showing what they want you to see.

Among the many reasons I have no respect for Trump. On a good note, at least we know for sure what he is. And we can vote him out of office in the following term.

Well...kudos to you.

But why wait until you get down there? Fly down there now and open up your condo ASAP to a Bahamian family. Also, you can invite a Bahamian family to live in your Canadian home. There's nothing stopping you from doing that.

I do one better, I can buzz the field and throw them out the door.

Liberals have thoroughly lost this argument. Not one of these people here have been to the affected islands.

I have and it shows how pathetic and petty liberals are.

There are over 30 big islands, 700 tiny islands and many islets in the Bahamas. The vast majority were not affected. The other poster is correct and you are either intentionally lying or misinformed.

He claims that once he goes to his snowbird condo in FL, he is going to invite a Bahamian family to live with him. I say why doesn't he fly down there right now and open up his condo for a Bahamian family? Why wait until winter? Heck, he can even invite a family to live in his Canadian home and tell them to come ASAP.
