As I read this, I am listening to George Harrison's "Isn't it a Pity." /sarc.

No refunds for membership fees. That’s the way at most clubs. You leave, you lose.

Boo friggin hoo. Their stock portfolio gains under Trump probably more than make up for the loss.

Anybody who could afford to join the club can afford to lose their money anyway! Typical liberal citing “Unnamed Sources”.
The club was bankrupt when President Trump bought it..., really sad (not!).

These are the very same people that prior to his election announcement were fighting tooth and nail to get into that club, all because it was Trump.

Their fees have been applied to the Idiot Club of which they are now members.

To move up the list by one spot, four new golf members need to join the club, according to the membership terms.

So they knew what quitting entailed. So I have zero concern about their waiting for their refund.

I read the article, and it turns out the problems these people are facing date back long before President Trump even announced his candidacy in 2015. He bought the club out of bankruptcy in 2012, and he is simply abiding by the refund/cancelation policy of the Doral that was in place at the time.

This “piece of journalism” is solely printed to 1) bash Trump and 2) create negative publicity for the club such that nobody would want to join it.

Tell them that refunds violate emoluments rules or something!

Well sir, maybe you can be buried in your backyard overlooking the golf course.

The headline and source was enough to predict the story: Trump cheats (although following bylaws)

Turns out to be correct.

They quit.

It’s in their contract. Tough tittie, boys.
