The federal government has put the island up for sale but has met with stiff opposition from environmentalists and some lawmakers who want to block the sale. They fear a sale could lead to development and the destruction of natural habitats.

    PLEASE….let’s do all we can to keep that narcissistic blow-hard Donald Trump out of CT! All we need is for “The Donald” to turn Plum Island into another Maralago!

    Who on earth would want to live there? One day you’re digging in your yard doing landscaping, hit a canister of lord-knows-what and the next day your skin turns purple. No thanks.

    Maybe he wants the former Level 5 lab so they can finally remove whatever that is growing on his head! You can bet that any “deal” the Donald offers will involve huge government subsidies – as do all his “projects.”
