Is that the "Nattering Heights" of "nattering nabobs of negativism" fame?

Of course you don't give a damn about Detroit but I'm sure you won't have a problem fooling the public into thinking you do. You can even slap your name on top of one of the new skyscrapers to make people think that YOU took a chance on Detroit because you love it so much and you wanted to make it great again. We will also have a bowl of Cheeto dust waiting for you everytime you touch down in the D"
Detroit is on an upswing. He will take credit, as he always does, when that happens.

Pretty much everything Trump touches turns to doo doo. Midas touch? It's a can of gold spray paint in his tiny hand.

Check out his steak company, vodka company, "university" and a string of bankrupted casinos and failed marriages.

I hope the congressional representatives from Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, and New York can all band together and refuse to pass a budget that doesn't adequately protect the Great Lakes. The delegations from these states have enough power to pass or fail just about anything, and we're all in this together when it comes to the lakes.
