NO SURPRISE. Donald Trump Was Mobbed Up To the Eyebrows As An NYC Developer

Part of Donald Trump’s sales pitch to the American people has been that he knows how to make deals. He does. And some of his very best deals have been made with the Mafia. At POLITICO, David Cay Johnson has an extensive piece on Donald Trump’s equally extensive history of parlaying his contacts within the mob into business deals. The overview:


While no one claims Trump was a “made man” it is really clear that from his earliest days in the business that Donald Trump cultivated relationships with known mobsters. These relationships were not incidental or accidental. He sought them out. He used mob influence to allow him to hire illegal immigrants to work on union construction sites. He used mob contacts to gain ownership of key pieces of property. He knowingly paid kickbacks to mob figures to facilitate construction on some of his projects. He provided jobs and financial assistance to mob figures and their associates.

If you want to claim that he had to do that to do business in New York, fine. Make the claim. But it just isn’t true. Guys like Trump are the ones who kept the mob in business even as legitimate businessmen were being victimized for standing up to provide evidence in court. As Trump acquired prominence he could have used his star power to stomp out mob influence in the real estate development sector. He didn’t because he had the close relationship with the mob that he needed to ensure that his projects were completed without a hitch while his competitors did not have that advantage.

    Still not enough to shake the Trumpbots from their Kool Aid induced stupor.

    First he will deny it then he will admit it then he will excuse it just like he did when bribing politicians in the progressive liberal democrat/rino socialist uni-party.
    It is what is necessary to compete in business and yes that mantra is nowhere near being worn out yet, in fact his supporters will think it all pretty cool. Not Trumps fault others in his industry were stuck on conducting business with at least a bit of integrity.

    I really believe Trump thinks in the same manner as the devil that despite facts, reason, logic and common sense he can fool all the people all the time, eventually they will all come around and it appears at least to him and his minions it is working out that way.
    There is visible, measurable and immediate power and gratification in the practice of wickedness while righteousness takes hard work, honesty, faith, hope and patience.

    Trump and the Clintons have one mentor and traveling companion whose words drives them with a passion:
    For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
