Donald Trump today announced that he would pay the owners of the current proposed NYC Mosque site which had drawn criticism due to it’s proximity to ground zero the price they paid for the land, plus 25% if they hand over the property to Trump and relocate the Mosque by at least 5 city blocks.
TMZ says Trump realizes it’s not a good business deal on his part but that he wants to do it:
“Because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse.”
The offer is for an all cash buyout, however lawyer’s for the investors say that Trump is really just using the offer as “just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight.”
When they say “cheap” attempt, we’ll just assume they mean he isn’t offering to give them “enough” money.
