Trump Says Toronto is Soft

Donald Trump, aka The Donald, is taking some time off this weekend from his budding professional wrestling career, his ongoing feud with Rosie O'Donnell, and his humanitarian work to come to Toronto and talk about Real Estate. Trump is the keynote speaker at the upcoming Real Estate and Wealth Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this Saturday and Sunday.

If you weren't already aware of this fact, you probably haven't been outside or listened to the radio in the past couple weeks. I can't recall a one-time advertising blitz like the one the Learning Annex is currently putting on for this event. Everywhere I turn in the city this week I seem to be hit with an extra dose of Trump's hair in billboard format.

Ahead of his visit to our city this weekend, Trump weighed in on the state of the Real Estate Market in Toronto. His take? We're soft. No doubt this is his unbiased opinion based on available market data and has nothing to do with the fact that Trump Tower is not selling well.

I'll be attending this event and I'm hoping the Donald will fill us Torontonians in on how to get rich by investing in a 'soft' market. I mean, I should expect something special for Trump's $1.5M appearance fee, right?
