[su_right_ad]If it has the name Trump in it, The Donald believes it is rightfully his.

The real-estate titan is poised to develop a luxury housing complex in Dubai called Trump Estates, but doesn’t own the TrumpEstates domain name.

A Trump Organization lawyer turned down a chance to buy it some 10 years ago from Scott Stephens, a former New Yorker who registered in 2004 with the hope of selling it.

Stephens got a cease-and-desist letter last week from the Trump Organization ordering him to transfer the domain name.

Trump Estates is not a registered trademark. But Trump Organization Executive Vice President Alan Garten told The Post that didn’t matter “because the Trump name is trademarked” and that Stephens was violating the law by “cyber squatting” on the domain name.

    Trump must be running out of money again.

      He wants to demonstrate his negotiating skills to show how he’d wipe out ISIS. He’s got to top Scott Walker and his assault on 100,000 school teachers!

    And lets not forget that Trump and his like minded right wingers are always complaining about the “frivolous lawsuits” and “trial attorneys” and calling for “tort reform’…
    Of course those reforms will only apply to the little people..

    I thought he and his lawyers were in Hawaii looking for proof that our President travelled decades back in time in order to place birth announcements in two local newspapers.
