RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. -- Business magnate Donald Trump is fighting -- not over an investment -- but to keep the Stars and Stripes flying from a 70-foot flagpole at his Southland Trump National Golf Course.
CBS Los Angeles reports that the American flag has been the focus of a standoff between Trump and state officials, who say the business investor has not taken the proper legal steps to keep the flag flying.
The California Coastal Commission claims that Trump has not filed the necessary coastal permits to fly the flag in its current location. The commission also says he has not paid a required $10,000 fee.

I fought for it and what good did it do. The majority of people infesting this country now are “offended” by the American flag. Barry’s “kiddie” invasion is only going to make the hatred of this country and its flag worse than it already is. The politician dicks now want to charge Americans 10 grand to fly the American flag? Great.
Bet on Donald. He has more money than the state to endure a legal fight.
The man is a loud mouth but he is right about this. It is his property, there is no danger to his neighbors, he has the right to fly his flag on his property
Here is the update of his win to fly the flag.
I am amazed at the number of stories of problems Americans are having flying their flag because of HOA, permits, etc. IT IS THE AMERICAN FLAG!!!
He does seem to be a vulgar man, but I must say I was impressed earlier this year with the job he did on Doral. He likes golf, to be sure, but his bold renovation of that course met with unopposed, if not universal, acclaim when Patrick Reed ( another man of the earth ) won there back in March.
$10,000 to fly Old Glory? Calif is truly a sick and demented place.
Send ‘em packing with their tail between their legs, Donald.
Begs the question, why would anyone complain about a symbol which means their dearly paid for extremely fragile freedom?
I suppose they would not have no problem flying a Palestinian Flag or a Cuban Flag.
Hey Babeeee, they have no problem doing anything they approve of. We just need approval of compliance.
Have a safe weekend!
and Oh how I do hope he makes himself very loud on this one.
Control, control, control is all the weenies want. Reminds me of a song, “He can’t even run his own life why the hell should he run (or ruin) mine?”
Why would he need a permit to fly the flag on his own property?
$10,000 fee to fly the US flag?? Seriously??
Mexican flag, hell no. But American flag, NO controversy here. It shall be flown!
The issue wasn't with the flag, but with the flagpole.
looks good to me
I seriously doubt we’ll have any issues with the obamas flying the American flag at their new residence once they leave the WH.
Beautiful golf courses. Would love to play some of them.
From time to time ‘flying the flag’ issues pop-up all around the
country. It isn’t a California problem; it is a ‘too many liberals
across the nation’ problem. If California is that bad why don’t you
find yourself a website based somewhere other than Fresno,
Or a Mexican flag.
