DORAL, Fla. - Donald Trump isn't happy with Florida Power & Light.
Trump tweeted Tuesday about the upkeep of utilities poles near the Trump National Doral Miami, which he bought for $150 million.
"In my opinion, one of the worst utility companies in the country is Florida Power and Light," Trump tweeted Tuesday. "Florida Power & Light has disgusting rotting utility poles outside Doral in Miami. They should put in new ones or will be sued."
FPL responded Wednesday, saying: "At FPL, facts matter. Real issue is cost of removing concrete pole." A second tweet said: "Happy to oblige, but we're sure Mr. Trump wouldn't expect a handout at the expense of FPL customers."
Trump wrote back, saying: "I pay millions of $'s a year to Florida Power & Light & they can't give us what we want. Maybe a major class action suit against them?" and "Re Florida Power & Light—Most important is safety but they have to also cater to aesthetics & not ruin the beauty of Florida."
