h/t to fb friend, Lee Arnold:
How does Trump's crooked and illegal actions stay under the radar so that his supporters believe he represents change?
This story and the ongoing investigation of Trump paying off attorneys general in Texas and Florida to not go after his fraudulent Trump University in those states are clear indications that Trump is not averse to doing anything -- even alleged illegal things -- to get his what he wants. He pays to play.
Trump hasn't been convicted of any crime, but neither has Hillary Clinton; however, that doesn't stop Trump's supporters from calling her a criminal. They need to take a look at Trump and let the scales fall from their eyes:
HOW DONALD TRUMP’S COMPANY VIOLATED THE UNITED STATES EMBARGO AGAINST CUBA
"Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort."
Trump donated to attorneys general who dropped Trump U. inquiries:
Attorneys general in Florida and Texas who declined to pursue lawsuits against the now-defunct Trump University received political contributions from Donald Trump, according to an Associated Press report.
Trump donated $35,000 to the successful gubernatorial campaign of then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott three years after a probe into the university’s "possibly deceptive trade practices" was dropped by his office when the university agreed to cease its Texas operations. Abbott's office pushed back against the report in a statement to The Hill on Friday, saying that the then-attorney general was just doing his job.
And a political fundraising committee supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi received a $25,000 donation from the Donald J. Trump Foundation just days after her office had announced it was looking into joining a multi-state lawsuit against Trump University. Her office later dropped the inquiry, citing a lack of evidence. The school has received intense scrutiny this week after a judge released Trump University documents that reveal details of how the school was run, such as instructors encouraging poor prospective students to max out credit cards in order to pay as much as $35,000 for real estate classes.
Trump's supporters want this scam artist and "alleged" crook to run the United States of America? They believe Trump represents change?
Yeah. A change from a dignified, moral president to an incompetent scam artist and fraud.
