Trump Organization Wins Lucrative Contract To Rebuild Syrian Airport

Donald Trump Jr, eldest son of the President and trustee of his business empire, has announced that the Trump Organization has won a lucrative contract to refurbish an airport in the Middle East. He was quick to emphasize this was done without the involvement of the White House.

“I can state with one-hundred percent certainty that my father played no role in the negotiation of this contract which was conducted solely by me over the past 24 hours.”

The airport, called the Shayrat airbase near the Syrian city of Homs, primarily plays host to a domestic carrier called the 50th Air Brigade.  Though still a functioning airport, a number of buildings had fallen into disrepair over the course of the past 72 hours.

Donald Trump Jr. said there were a number of other developers bidding on the project, but he managed to persuade client Bashar al-Assad to pick him by promising to stand behind his work.

“I told him if I rebuild it I can guarantee it will be quality that will stand the test of time. But if it’s someone other than the Trump Organization, who knows? I couldn’t say what might happen to it.”

Though building airports is a new departure for the Trump Organization – which is more known for hotels and casinos – fellow Trustee Eric Trump sees a lot more variety in the company’s future.

“I see us rebuilding many more airports, as well as heavy manufacturing facilities, power stations, and maybe even ship-building yards. The possibilities are literally endless.”

    Who is the author of this and where is the video?

  12. How is this helping America citizens?!! These attacks are only lining the trumps. You supporters of this guy can continue to think trump cares about America all you want to. It is high time passed to get this “blood sucker” out of America daily businesses. The only jobs coming to America are for his companies and those politicians who are selling out, ie, Mitch, Paul,pence, etc.

    • Agreed! So sick of these bastards doing a big whopping NOTHING but getting money for themselves and playing golf!

  13. Since the US sent so many people to Assad’s regime to be tortured and of course is working with his PYD allies in north Syria where it already has two airbases, satire and reality long ago became indistinguishable (and then you elected Trump…). I think for you lot everyone in Syria but Assad is expendable “collateral damage” and/or “terrorists” anyway, so all they’re good for is a laugh.

  14. No surprise using war for self gain. Trump family history used human trafficking. KARMA awaits them.

  15. HELLUFITIS, it could happen,look at the cost of the pres’s wife stahing in NYC Tower for a year and him golfing 16 times in two months,sombody do something ANYBODY.HOW ABOUT THE NUT WHO STOLE SOME SIXTEEN GUNS AND WROTE A MANIFESTO,ANYONE ON HIS SIDE?

  16. If this article is facts, I say oh wow. These ingrates really think they own the world, and can do anything they like to make them even more filthy rich. I say I hope it does not happen but if it does, just know the wealth of the sinners is laid up for the Just. Now if you can’t read this or figure out what this means, then let me know.

  17. Can you say Emoluments clause? Of course world leaders will favor lining our Presidents coffers. Stop this insanity. #FiretheLiars

  18. Seriously, not funny anymore. I’m laughing and twinging simultaneously so, mission accomplished, Breaking Burg. Mission accomplished
    Born 70 years ago in Greensburg, pa. Chose to live in the Outer Banks of North Carolina….hanging on to sanity by living in Paris as often as possible these last 8 years, ….so I’m qualified to say … I think we need more Burgers to Breakbad, as well as you do. Thanks
