Trump’s Resort That He Once Called The “Summer White House” Allegedly Had “High Levels” Of Toxic Chemicals In The Drinking Water

This is worse than disgusting. It's dangerous!

Trump sure does like to shit talk folks on their state of cleanliness and safety despite the fact that he himself is a walking, talking OSHA violation and every damn one of his properties follows suit.

He’s been smacked with lawsuits over bedbug infestations at his “luxury” resorts. His restaurants have been cited for rat and rodent infestations. The White House was covered in sticky rat traps and mice were literally falling from the ceiling into the laps of reporters during his time there. And the Daily Mail exposed more than a little grossness at Donald’s Doral resort — which featured moldy air conditioning vents and chaise lounges by the pool, feces-smeared toilets, and numerous unidentifiable stains.

Yet the guy still had the audacity to call places like New York and Baltimore “disgusting,” “unsafe,” and even a “rat and rodent-infested mess” simply because he managed to start beef with their mayor or Congressman.

But, thanks to a press release from the nonpartisan environmental nonprofit, The Environmental Working Group, we now know that Trump’s issues on his property go far beyond gross and unsanitary — some of them are downright dangerous.

Per the press release, the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey served toxic tap water.

Trump National gets its water from one of the hundreds of various water systems in the city that are contaminated with toxic levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and other perfluorinated chemicals (PFAS) — with reports indicating that the tap water served at the golf club tests positive for these chemicals at alarmingly high rates.

To make matters even worse, despite the toxic chemicals present in the water, Trump continues to regularly hold events at the property that he’s dubbed the “Summer White House” — which the official website describes as a “world-class private club” and wedding venue.

These specific chemicals found in the tap water at Trump’s property are permanent, meaning they don’t break down in the environment nor the human body. Once they’re in there, they stay forever and just continue to grow. The Environmental Protection Agency has explained that these chemicals are known to cause “reproductive and developmental, liver and kidney, and immunological effects in laboratory animals” as well as tumors in animals.

Now, Trump’s resort isn’t just doomed over their water situation. There is actually a rather simple solution to the problem, described by The Environmental Working Group as a “big Brita filter.”

But as of this report, Trump’s club hadn’t yet installed such a thing.

He really doesn’t care if his tap water kills you, if you get eaten alive by bedbugs, or catch some flesh-eating virus in one of his filthy-ass pools. He just wants your money.

Are you surprised?
