Should Trump get elected and he decided to use his property in sxm as his summer white house,instead of miralago,what would the impact be on the Island and we vacationers?
Would Air Force one's arrival divert my flight,or cancel it?
Would his motorcade tie up trafic? Would my Timeshare be more valuable? Would he rename Mullett Bay golf course,Trump Bay Golf course? Just a thought.... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

All good questions which will not impact my vote one bit. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />
Trump has dozens of properties everywhere so I'm not sure SXM has a higher probability of being visited than the others.

As for the golf in Mullet Bay, good candidates would be Toupee Bay or Comb-Over Bay. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I wouldn't worry too much about any potential Trump impact. We've had it on fairly decent authority he looked at the course once but supposedly wasn't remotely interested in Mullet Bay property to become another Trump course, just for starters. Supposedly, too big a price tag when one considered all the island issues - dealing with ineffectual governments and all that go with them. And the other stuff....well, we'll just have to wait and see, but I'm not letting a 'possible?' Trump presidency ruin any vacation soon. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

Ha, I personally asked him several years ago about the rumor of him buying Mullet, as my mom said, he said flat out government to hard to deal with!!! We had a meeting with him prior to him buying Trump National Hudson Valley, when it was Branton Woods. One hell of a party he put on!!

My highly placed people tell me this would be UUUGE. The biggest thing to happen in the Islands since the arrival of Columbus. Buy now before prices explode!

Didn't say he would? Not sure what that has to do with the conversation of him redeveloping Mullet..

Was quite surprised this nonsensical thread even got responses. I was going to ignore it.

What would an American even have to say about the naming of a golf course in another country? He doesn't own it, chose not to buy it. It wouldn't affect our timeshare one way or another.

Pray tell just where is his property here?

As for POTUS or VPOTUS visits Charleston gets them all the time and it does tie up traffic and is an unwanted inconvenience but I bet SXM would not pass muster since Air Force One usually lands at military bases, does it not?

No, arrives at PDX as well as many other main passenger airports. Who can forget about Clinton waiting for his hair cut and shutting down the airport before leaving LAX? What was that, a $5,000,000.of hair cut?

Remember topics to avoid in any conversation?
Politics/Religion
I think they may have added Pro-Life/Pro Choice and Sexual preferences too.

All righty then!! I think the original post was all in fun, or at least that's how I took it. This, however, is not..
