Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States. With that role comes in incredible and inordinate amount of responsibility. He believes his experience in business and real estate will serve him well in the White House.
Let’s take a look at the way Donald Trump actually conducts business, both personally and professionally. These are all instances that he’d rather you soon forget. You be the judge of whether you want this man to be the next President of the United States.
He Has Hired Illegal Immigrants
In order to quickly (and cheaply) construct his namesake Trump Tower in New York City, Trump stated under oath that he knowingly was aware of illegal immigrants working on the job site. In a lawsuit, 200 undocumented Polish workers claimed they were paid $5 per hour, were not given hard hats while working, and were forced to sleep on the job site.
Sexual Assault Accusations By His First Wife
During their 1990 divorce case, Trump’s first wife, Ivana Trump used the word “rape” to describe an incident between the couple in 1989. He apparently violently assaulted her, ripping her hair from her scalp, then restraining her and forcing himself on her.
The Curious Case of Pam Bondi
Just days before Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi was set to launch an investigation into Trump University and Trump Institute, The Trump Foundation donated $25,000 to a group that supports Pam Bondi. It was found that the donation was illegal for this “charitable” foundation and they were fined $2,500.
Trump has been plagued with rumors of his ties with the mafia. His attorney represented the Genovese crime family boss Tony Salerno. Trump also bought nine cars for and extended invitations to his yacht and helicopter to Robert LiButti, an associate of John Gotti.
