A major investigation by USA Today has revealed one of the sordid secrets to the profit making in Trump's business empire: don't pay your bills in full, whether from small businesses, contractors or even the lawyers you've hired to stonewall them.

“At least 60 lawsuits, along with hundreds of liens, judgments and other government filings reviewed by the USA Today Network, document people who have accused Trump and his businesses of failing to pay them for their work, Among them: a dishwasher in Florida. A glass company in New Jersey. A carpet company. A plumber. Painters. Forty-eight waiters. Dozens of bartenders and other hourly workers at his resorts and clubs, coast to coast. Real estate brokers who sold his properties. And, ironically, several law firms that once represented him in these suits and others.”

Not surprised one tiny bit!!!

Omg, Sue H called Slump a 'cretin' again! I love it! I love the sound of that word.

It's like it could be the name of a Dr. Who Monster.

Yes, the last couple of days I’ve read a couple of articles like this. Apparently, this guy even stiffs his supporters:

And if the reports are true, he's even stiffed his own family.

So, no surprises that this piece of work stiffs working people.

Why am I not surprised? This turd has no ethics or principles at all. What a wonderful example to set for the rest of the country - not!

I certainly wouldn't want to do a thing for him. He's been crappy for all reasons to contractors; not paying them for the jobs, not paying overtime, etc. He's a flipping jerk. Thanks Freya

Given that Donald Trump's grandfather was the owner of several brothels and he has been shamelessly exploiting people, particularly foreign workers as well as banks and the government. If life was fair he would have been bankrupt years ago, rather than going for the most disgustingly racist presidential campaign for decades.

Indeed....no surprise. What IS surprising is the numbers of people who find him qualified and desirable as the President.
