Make him pay for it first with promises to reimburse. Once done and he's paid for it stiff him on the bills. Seems appropriate.

I've got an old refrigerator box he can have. It only slightly smells like urine.

Thats a lot of money for 1 shelf of coloring books

Two billion!?!?!  That fat fark can't even build a shrine to himself without grifting the fark out of it and dooming it to failure.

You know who else wanted to build a prison library.

This has the potential to be incredibly hilarious. He likely will have "liquidity issues" here in the near/long term (not a pee-pee joke)...most big money contributors will see him as poison...he may be close to fully tapping out the rubes.

Lots of conditionals above, but how satisfying would it be to see a sorry little hovel of a "library" be the place to glorify his legacy?

Anybody donating to this project deserves to have their money stolen. 2 billion dollars? That's twice what Jerry Jones paid to have the new Cowboy's stadium built.

The library should just have a phone and a gold toilet.

If Trump were smart - and he's not - he would carve out a library on the first few floors of Trump Tower. It would save a ton of cash, and it would be the natural environment for such a place.

He will skim half to pay his debts and the rest will go to his chosen contractors to kickback.  Presidential library funds are private black boxes.  His final act will be to further scam his dumb cult.

None of it will actually go to the contractors

This right here.
It's just another grift.

I have a better idea. Let's take that $2 billion, build a prison, and put his name on it. Then we put him in it.
 
2021-01-17 8:28:24 AM  
I was thinking more along the lines of a single, ragged-out 1980s book mobile with lots of rust. Much, much more symbolic of your "presidency". We can park it in front of the NYSE and flatten its tires, a reminder to the only people you helped on your watch.

Did it come that way or have you been peeing in it? I'm not sure I'd keep it if it came that way.

Link to the djtrump library (all lower-case). Don't miss the COVID Memorial.

Now I've never counted them, but I can't possibly imagine it would cost $2B for a shack and the complete works of Dr. Seuss.

Several floors of Trump Tower don't actually exist, so put the "Library" there. Fill in that unused space.

Trump will grift until every last sucker in America is broke.

Don the Con goes on and on.

It used to be an outreach center.

Two billion dollars for a library for a man who doesn't (can't?) read.

Only in 'murica.

He demolished the historic Bonwit Teller building for his bullsh*t tower.  I say we blow it up and build an actual library.

I thought Ringling Bros. already had a Clown College & Museum in FL. Bit redundant, nu?

I imagine there will be extensive use of "bookcase" wallpaper.

Also a gallery dedicated to Ben Harrison originals.

That's a lot of money to store the zero books Donnie has read.

True, but trump** is such a financial dumbass that the lie/bury will go over budget before ground is broken.

/add it to the heap
//he'll die in prison
///and on trial at the same time

You're being rather generous as to how much will actually go towards the library.

Gee Dony that's a million stimulus checks you couldn't be bothered with

This, and Individual-1 Tower will be in receivership by then.

I'm sure Trump will create heretofore unknown levels of corruption when it comes to building his library, but Presidential libraries have always been a little shady regardless of who it is for.
 
2021-01-17 8:47:26 AM  
Has to make it past impeachment first.

And 4* the cost for a 2 time super popular president? he is smoking crack.

The rotunda will probably have a 12 foot statue of him pointing at an open book resting in his left hand with an amused look on his face.

Nixon library - $25 million
Ford library - $4.3 million

I wonder if he knows that he isn't going to get to control the project and grift his friends like he did with The Wall. I'll bet that most of the Wall money was grifted  which is why they only completed a few miles.
