I kind of want a follow-up on the "Trump boys walk out on a tab" story but I'm also afraid if the news media follows it to its conclusion, it will ruin her business.
"They don't carry cash." Well, sure, that makes sense. Is this pub not equipped for plastic? Is there an international issue there? I'm not up on the standards, I don't know.
But I do know the world is littered with people who told themselves, "Sure, it's the Trumps, they're obviously good for it so I'm not worried." and then went broke.
The one thing we can say for certain in this story is that Eric and Donald Jr had no compunctions about offering to buy a round for the house while knowing they didn't have any means on them of paying for it, and walked out without making arrangements.
But here's the really interesting rabbithole my brain went down this morning when I saw that story:

First thought: "Obviously they have credit cards."

Second thought: ".........wait. Do they?"
When I imagine what a Trump would do with a credit card... I don't think they'd have them for long. Like, think about the steroetypical "black card": a charge card with no limit, given to someone with functionally unlimited funds so they never have to be inconvenienced.
The *idea* behind a black card is you don't have to ever embarrass or inconvenience the very rich person with a disapproval because they have both the money and the people watching the money to make it good each month.
Like, just imagine what Donald or his sons would do if someone gave them that kind of opportunity to run up a bill and walk out on it.
Ivanka is the only one of them I can imagine actually managing to have and keep any kind of credit.
Anyway. That's the really interesting part of the story to me: do the Trump boys not have credit cards
