The Scandalous Truth About Donald Trump

Donald Trump likes to flaunt his business degree from Wharton University. However, Donald Trump has no formal education in politics. Donald Trump barely knows the basics of politics. So, how does this qualify him to run for President of the United States?

Donald Trump claims going to a military school at the age of 13 gives him the military experience needed to be president. Military school as a teenager hardly qualifies him as a presidential candidate.

Donald Trump claims he can identify with the struggle of Americans, he says he started off in Brooklyn and built his empire. Trump built his empire with a million dollar loan from his father. His struggle was so difficult.

Donald Trump's Childhood home.

“It’s not been easy for me. It has not been easy for me. I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a million dollars. I came into Manhattan and I had to pay him back with interest.”

Although the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ inflation calculator estimates that the amount of money Trump received in 1973 would be roughly equivalent to $5,359,121.62 today, Trump was adamant about his early struggle. Trump said:

“A million dollars is not a lot compared to what I have built.”

In the 1970's, Donald Trump had a discrimination law suit against him for refusing to rent to minorities.

 The Department of Justice sued Trump and his father Fred in 1973 for housing discrimination at 39 sites around New York. “The government contended that Trump Management had refused to rent or negotiate rentals ‘because of race and color,’” The New York Times reported. “It also charged that the company had required different rental terms and conditions because of race and that it had misrepresented to blacks that apartments were not available.” Trump called the accusations “absolutely ridiculous.”

In 1981 Trump bought up a apartment building in Central Park South planning to build condos on the site. Trump used mob like tactics to attempt force renters out of the location.

In 1982-1986, Trump has been accused of using "Tenant Intimidation" to evict renters. Tenants claim, Trump shut off their heat and electric. Maintenance also refused to make any repairs. Two tenants swore in court that mushrooms grew on their carpet from a leak.

Trump also sued tenants for 150,000 million dollars when they complained.

In New York City and Atlanta City, Trump has been accused of having strong business ties with the Mafia in the 1970's. Although Trump plays himself as an unwitting participant, he was questioned in court. Michael Isikoff has also reported that Trump was close to Robert LiButti, an associate of John Gotti, inviting him on his yacht and helicopter. In one case, Trump’s company bought LiButti nine luxury cars.

From 2005-2010, Donald Trump had an online get rich quick scheme where he scammed Americans for as much as $35,000 a person to attend his online university.

Donald Trump's university was forced to changed it's name to the “Trump Entrepreneur Initiative,” because, the school was violating New York law by operating without an educational license.)

The school shut down in 2010, but the litigation continues. New York is suing Trump, alleging the Trump U. bilked students out of $40 million.

I can only imagine the horror story the United States will become with a President like Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is not looking to make America great again. He is seeking the ultimate power of being the President of the United States.
