Now that Trump's elected, those to whom debts are owed can start fucking with him. Took it all of a day for one to get started!
Russia said it was in contact with President-elect Donald Trump’s team during the U.S. election campaign, despite repeated denials by the Republican candidate’s advisers that any links existed. “There were contacts” before the election, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Thursday, according to the Interfax news service. “We continue this work of course,” he said, without giving details of what the contacts were.

The Doral is a Miami resort one would expect to be sparsely occupied in June, an hour’s drive from the beaches in the sticky Florida summer. Moreover, it’s failing to meet its financial expectations. Fortunately, it’s just been picked by U.S. President Donald Trump to host next year’s G7 summit of the world’s most powerful […]

And while your mileage may vary on their usefulness, they share one thing in common: a serious drain on the battery for your smartphone, the very thing you’ll […]
