Trump giving Mishiko the sack2011-05-23 20:17
According to expectations, Georgia's attempt to get the better of billionaire Donald Trump has failed. It turns out that it is Sakartvelo that must shoulder the Trump Tower ambitious project implying the construction of high buildings in Batumi. It is reported that the "raising of funds" for the skyscrapers has not even been started yet. There is no detailed information as to where 250 million dollars for two skyscrapers will be found but it is absolutely clear the money will not be provided by the American tycoon.
A famous American billionaire, former candidate to the post of the U.S. President and Mikhail Saakashvili's "best friend" Donald Trump has again proved that with all his amiability, he is not apt to give alms to the countries that beg for it. He has eaten Georgia for breakfast - that's the best way to define Trump's attitude to the country. Roughly speaking, he let the country down in all respects.
Firstly, the billionaire has frustrated the hopes of the Georgian authorities who had reckoned that Barack Obama would be replaced by someone getting perfectly along with Saakashvili and one of those whom the Georgian president calls "a politician-idealist". It emerged that Trump's idealism has mostly been ascribed to him. Anyway, he rejected the presidential race very pragmatically, having stated that business was of greater value for him than the presidential seat.
"Within several months, I have been conducting an unofficial agitation campaign and realized that one cannot succeed in politics unwillingly, - the billionaire said. - Ultimately, I understood that my business is my core passion and I am not ready to give it up". It is unclear whether Trump was sincere or not when substantiating his refusal to run for presidency but the Georgian politicians' hopes to see "their" president at the Oval Office failed.
Anyway, Trump counts his money. As for idealist, it is Mikhail Saakashvili whom this name suits better; he decided for some reason that his tender friendship with a billionaire means that the latter would allow to freely dive into his pocket. However, compliments are compliments but Trump's pockets are tightly fastened. The Georgian authorities trumpeted that the billionaire would invest in the construction of high buildings in Tbilisi and Batumi but it looks like they will have to find the means on their own.
