Trump dissolves business councils

Another group has ditched plans to host an event at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

The Palm Beach Zoo as well as Conservation Society on Sunday joined a list of what is actually right now at least nine nonprofits, charities as well as some other organizations which have said they won’t give business to the posh club in Palm Beach, Florida.

var storytext = document.getElementById(‘storytext’);
var heightToSkip = 0;

function resetValues()
totalHeight = 0;
targetChildElement = null;

// Check if story is actually inside blacklist of articles to remove smartassets
// [2017.07.27] Results of a one-off request coming from r.barbieri
if(BLACKLIST[location.pathname] === true) {
if(storytext == null)
console.log(“Error finding storytext element for SA embed”);

for ( i = 0; i 0)
heightToSkip -= storytext.childNodes[i].clientHeight;
else if(heightToSkip minHeight && targetChildElement != null)
//console.log(“total height = ” + totalHeight);
//console.log(“childNode = ” + targetChildElement);

storytext.childNodes[targetChildElement].insertAdjacentHTML(‘afterend’, smartAssetDiv);
smartasset = document.getElementById(‘smartasset-article’); = ‘left’; // allows module to have text float to right =’20px’; =’25px’;


/* bail out since we’re done */


/* div with id=”smartassetcontainer”. Sanity check to only embed once */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘div’ && storytext.childNodes[i].id !== “undefined” && storytext.childNodes[i].id === “smartassetcontainer”) {

/* div with id=”ie_column” */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘div’ && storytext.childNodes[i].id !== “undefined” && storytext.childNodes[i].id === “ie_column”) {

/* embeds coming from twitter, facebook, youtube */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘div’ && storytext.childNodes[i].classList.contains(’embed’)) {

/* sy88pgw video player */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘div’ && storytext.childNodes[i].classList.contains(‘cnnplayer’)) {

/* images */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘img’)

/* images stored in figure tags */
else if (storytext.childNodes[i].nodeName.toLowerCase() === ‘figure’)

“After thoughtful consideration by zoo leadership, we have decided the item is actually important which we not allow distractions to deter us coming from our mission as well as culture,” said the organization’s CEO as well as president, Andrew Aiken, in a statement.

The announcement came a day after another local group, the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation, abandoned Mar-a-Lago.

“Given the current environment surrounding Mar-a-Lago, we have made the decision to move our annual dinner dance,” which foundation said on Twitter.

The exodus comes after Trump blamed “many sides” for violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virignia. A woman was killed as well as 19 people were injured when a car rammed down a narrow street.
