They had researched where Donald would be on a specific date in 1980 where he would be easy to kill, but they went back in time about 10 years earlier than they intended, to 1970. They needed someplace to live without drawing too much attention to themselves, so one of them became a realtor and arranged for the purchase of an apartment building where all of the time travelers from various timelines could live. In the process, that realtor's participation in the National Association of Realtors inadvertently caused a change in the bylaws whereby another class of members was created, which consisted of real estate developers. Donald Trump was provided a free membership in 1979; while his career continued to focus on real estate development, he also used the title "realtor" because hey, he likes titles, especially ones he never earned.

So NOW who's uninformed?

How much do the new surveillance cameras cost?
The NYC subway isn't the only thing run by the MTA, The MTA is the largest public transport provider in the western hemisphere. It also runs the Metro North, Long Island railroad and buses, NYC buses, 7 bridges and two tunnels. Every year it's the same shit, they're always complaining about losing money. They need to get better accountants and flush out all the crooks in Albany.

MTA fare evasion crackdown a questionable use of resources

I've said it before but people really have a tough time visualizing what a "billion" is. It's not just a step above a million.

A billion is one thousand millions.

If a million is a 1" x 1" x 1" cube, then a billion is a 10"x10"x10" cube.

Put a million dollars in a pile. Now imagine one thousand of those piles. That's a billion.
