The Trump Hotel in Low Earth Orbit

"The Trump administration wants to turn the International Space Station into a kind of orbiting real estate venture run not by the government, but by private industry.
The White House plans to stop funding the station after 2024, ending direct federal support of the orbiting laboratory. But it does not intend to abandon the orbiting laboratory altogether and is working on a transition plan that could turn the station over to the private sector, according to an internal NASA document obtained by The Washington Post."

It's almost as though he asks staff to figure out the right thing to do and does the opposite for sheer shock value.

"Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said he hoped recent reports of NASA’s decision to end funding of the station “prove as unfounded as Bigfoot.” He said the decision was the result of “numskulls” at the Office of Management and Budget.
“As a fiscal conservative, you know one of the dumbest things you can to is cancel programs after billions in investment when there is still serious usable life ahead,” he said." WP


You know it's bad when Ted Cruz objects to this hare-brained scheme. I should've known that the evil leprechaun, Mick Mulvaney is behind this crap.

Elon Musk might be a potential buyer.
