Footnotes and Citations

  1. Lawyers have met with Miami-Dade County officials every year since 2012 to lower the assessments at Trump National Doral, the elite South Florida club that Trump bought for $150 million in 2012 and pledged to boost with a $250 million makeover. Repeated Trump appeals, including at a special hearing in June, helped knock the club's value down from roughly $100 million in 2012 to $75 million this year, even as it bloomed with renovations. The club's revenue, Trump said in election filings, totaled more than $131 million in the 10 months that ended in May. Trump's election filing says the club is worth at least $50 million.

  2. Golf was not the only sport singed by Trump's political remarks. Nascar was scheduled to hold an awards event last year at Doral. Its World Truck Series is sponsored by Camping World, whose chief executive, Marcus Lemonis, is a native of Lebanon. In the wake of Trump's comments about immigrants, Lemonis made it clear that he and his employees would not attend the banquet if it was held at Doral, and the event was moved.
