Article from the Washington Post.

Some choice quotes:

Quote:
Donald Trump often brags about having experts and senior former officials advising him. Wednesday night in a forum on national security, he said, “We have admirals, we have generals, we have colonels. We have a lot of people that I respect.” It’s true that Trump is getting high-level policy advice on a regular basis from senior experts such as Rudy Giuliani and retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn. But Trump has never acknowledged the policy shop based in Washington that has been doing huge amounts of grunt work for months without recognition or compensation.


Quote:
But in August, shortly after the convention, most of the policy shop’s most active staffers quit. Although they signed non-disclosure agreements, several of them told me on background that the Trump policy effort has been a mess from start to finish.

“It’s a complete disaster,” one disgruntled former adviser told me. “They use and abuse people. The policy office fell apart in August when the promised checks weren’t delivered.”


Quote:
Walid Phares, the Middle East adviser on Trump’s policy team, was getting paid $13,000 a month in addition to being a paid analyst on Fox News.


Quote:
“The national security advisory board was total nonsense. They had absolutely no say in anything,” one of the former advisers said. “Most of them are just names on paper.”

Can anyone, pref a historian, identify one other candidate in our history that has had such a high level of negatives, personality disorders, trail of bad behavior, etc. as the OrangeMan?

It's like a bad dream. Has this Democracy run its course?

Trump never signed a contract with them. Completely their fault for doing any work without a contract. Assuming they had any experience in the consulting industry, they had to know the situation going into it. This is completely identical to an ad agency which does a bunch of work to produce an advertisement without having a contract but the person/company doesn't like the ad so they don't pay for it.

This isn't Trump being a dick, this is a company that should have known what they were getting into. It is my opinion (I read about this last week) that the company did know exactly what the situation was and they are just trying to blackmail Trump into paying for services that he didn't find useful.

Moral of the story, if you run a business, don't do any work for someone until you have a signed contract with them to perform said work.

Yes it is Trump being a dick, just that the law (as with Clinton) is behind him.

There is no law that says I cannot say

Dick

100 times in this reply, that does not mean I have to do it.

This is about people believing the Trump bullshit about honesty and integrity. It is clear he is none of those (well no more then he legally has to be).
