President Donald Trump’s business career has largely been defined by all people he’s scammed, extorted, or cheated. Everywhere he goes, people are left unpaid for the work they’ve done or the products they’ve provided.
Literally hundreds of people are still owed money by Donald Trump. USA Today reports that on just one project, the Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, “records released by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission in 1990 show that at least 253 subcontractors weren’t paid in full or on time.”
Philadelphia carpenter Edward Friel Jr. is still owed $86,000 for his work on Trump Plaza. Juan Carlos Enriquez, a South Florida painter, is still owed $30,000 for his work on Trump’s Doral Golf Resort. Even the contractors who built Trump’s newest Washington D.C. hotel still haven’t been paid by the President. The stories are plentiful, and they all end the same way – with Trump getting off scot-free and the small business owner left in the dust.
CNN compiled a collection of interviews with Trump’s victims during the election. As President Trump loudly demands that we stop discussing his alleged ties to Russia and focus on “jobs,” this is a sharp reminder of how little Donald Trump actually cares for the American worker.
