Actually I think Trump may be taking some revenge on regulatory agencies. It's already documented Trump is litigious and if you don't have deep pockets he's going to sue or countersue you into the ground if you opposed his business interest for some reason. Federal regulatory agencies are one of the few things that can equalize things for the little guy who might have a beef with a wealthy business.

Right now I'm writing a complaint to the FTC about a multi-million dollar corporation. I don't need the response to be any weaker than it is already is. I don't have the resources to go up against big corporations.

Trump is a huge supporter of small business,
he talks about it all the time. It's mostly who
he deals with in his own business, small
businesses.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Melania will drive in a motorcade from the White House to Andrews AFB in Maryland: 20 mins. Then she'll hop on a 737 or a 757 (similar to Trump's jumbo jet) to NYC's LaGuardia Airport: 45 mins. From there, they'll dodge bridge and tunnel traffic by taking a helicopter to Manhattan's Chelsea district: 15 mins. Their journey ends with another motorcade for the 2.5 mile ride to Trump Tower: 10 mins.


It is 205 miles from the White House lawn to Chelsea helicopter pad in Manhattan. Look at the Combat radius of a VH-60N "WhiteHawk", which entered service with the squadron in 1988. It is the smaller helicopter in Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1). VH-60N seats 11. Both helicopters require a pilot, copilot, and crew chief, and the VH-60N's crew also includes a communications systems operator. The combat radius is 368 miles.

Wouldn't it be easier to helicopter her 200 miles to Manhattan than to charter a B737?

Helicopters are fun to me, but I could see some people refusing to ride in one. I would argue if that was the reason, it is at least more reasonable (to me anyway)

The Washington Post has been color coding President Trump's time at Mar a Lago

She does take a helicopter in Manhattan, but that is only about 6 miles.

I'm willing to grant the benefit of the doubt here, because often it's the Secret Service that determines the means these trips are handled.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Is small business defined as five hundred employees or less? Seems quite high.

My theory is that Trump never actually colluded with Russia to fix the election. Russia did it's hacking independent of the Trump campaign, with no coordination between the two.

Instead, I'm predicting that what the Mueller probe will discover are financial entanglements between Trump and some Russian mobsters with connections to Putin (loans, investments, bribes). And while these entanglements might compromise Trump's integrity as President, is possible that none of these transactions are illegal. Unethical, perhaps. But maybe not illegal. This might explain why he's been so warm to Putin.

Let me go down on record as predicting that the Russians have something on him of a sexual nature from his visit to Russia for a beauty pageant.


Oh yeah, and that too.

U. S. Small Business Administration Small Business Size Standards is 100-1,500 employees depending on the industry, but 500 employees is fairly common especially for manufacturing.

Bituminous Coal Underground Mining 1,500
Crude Petroleum and Natural Gas Extraction 1,250
Electric Power Distribution 1,000
Natural Gas Liquid Extraction 750
Doll, Toy, and Game Manufacturing 500
Computer and Computer Peripheral Wholesalers 250
Confectionery Merchant Wholesalers 200
Ophthalmic Goods Merchant Wholesalers 150
Home Furnishing Merchant Wholesalers 100

Wholesaling is much less than 500 employees

Wow! I would have thought the phrase 'small business' was maybe 100 employee max, and more likely 50 employees. I know in NY State certain onerous and business stifling requirements kick in at the 50 employee mark, which often limits growth to that size.
