The Latest on President Donald Trump and the Mississippi Rally Deal article President Donald Trumps Mississippi Rally deal was a major coup for the Trump administration, as it allowed him to bypass a legislative process that would have required a supermajority of lawmakers to approve a deal.
A new Republican-controlled Congress passed the legislation by a vote of 98-0.
The deal also provided the Trump Administration with the legal authority to use eminent domain to seize land to build a stadium and convention center in the state.
Trump has repeatedly said that the stadium would be built on private land.
The $4 billion stadium would house a professional sports team and the University of Mississippi.
It would also be home to a concert hall, a convention center, a hotel and entertainment venue.
The deal was the culmination of months of negotiations that began with Trump announcing the agreement on the White House lawn on June 17, according to a senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
Trump had promised the deal would help him get a stadium built on public land, but the details of the deal were secret until now, the official said.
Under the deal, Trump would have gotten to decide which cities would host his rallies and whether they would be cities that could use eminent use.
The city in question would get to decide on whether to bid on the project, the officials said.
The president and city officials could then seek approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which would approve a request for an easement to build the stadium and use eminent-domain to buy land in their hometowns.
After Trump announced the deal at the White and State houses, it quickly took off on social media.
Twitter users shared a screenshot of the tweet, which featured a picture of Trump surrounded by his cabinet and advisers.
The tweet was later deleted, but was quickly picked up by the New York Times, CNN and other outlets.
“Trump has had a tremendous amount of support from local communities and he will continue to build relationships,” Trump said in a statement announcing the deal.
“We are committed to a long-term relationship with the people of Mississippi and look forward to working with them to build something great.”
While the president may be happy with the outcome, the deal does not guarantee a stadium will be built.
A source familiar with the negotiations said Trump was seeking to build on private property, but not in a public park.
That means the Trump Organization is likely to have to negotiate terms with the city and the landowner for the stadium.
According to the source, the agreement would have allowed the Trump team to use the proceeds from the sale of naming rights for the team’s stadium to pay off creditors.
If Trump were to receive the proceeds, the team would be obligated to repay them, the source said.
If the money were to be paid back, the Trumps would have to sell the team to someone else for $1.4 billion, which could mean the team could end up paying the debt and the city could not legally use eminent deed.
Trump and the Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
