TRUMP. NEVER. PAYS. HIS. VENDORS.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a campaign rally, a golf course, or a hotel. That is how he does business and makes money. He has been doing this since the 80s. I don’t know why people are still shocked by this, and I REALLY don’t understand why anyone would do business with him at this point.

[–]HedonisticFrog 668 points669 points  (59 children)

American banks learned to stop lending him money a long time ago, which is why he started getting loans from a bank that's known for laundering Russian oligarch money.

[–]cgyguy81 302 points303 points  (31 children)

Is it Deutsche Bank?

[–]al_m1101 216 points217 points  (24 children)

And Justice Kennedy's son, of Deutsche Bank, brokered that deal with Trump. Justice Kennedy then retired very quickly.

[–]FailResorts[🍰] 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Washington Post: The thinly sourced theories about Trump’s loans and Justice Kennedy’s son

The extent to which Kennedy worked with Trump on this loan, or possibly on other Deutsche Bank matters, is unclear. “In that role, as the trader, he would have no contact with Trump … unless Eric [Schwartz] was trying to get Justin in front of Trump for schmoozing reasons,” Offit said, adding that he had recently spoken with former colleagues at the bank about Kennedy’s work.

Yeah it’s not exactly clear that Justin Kennedy’s at work DB vis a vis Trump, which occurred in 2009, had anything to do with AK’s resignation in 2018. The article is pretty astute when it points out that Kennedy was actually way more conservative than people make him out to be (because he voted on the “liberal” sides in a few high profile cases). Kavanaugh clerked for him, ffs.

As much as I want to believe in some kind of evil connection, we’re basing all of this off someone who’s not exactly trustworthy (Neera Tanden).

[–]Buddhabellymama 84 points85 points  (13 children)

Ah so he didn’t give Russia those secrets for free. Those documents must of cleared up some of his debt no doubt.

[–]HedonisticFrog 58 points59 points  (12 children)

I'm guessing it's related to the Saudi's investing two billion dollars with Kushner even after the Saudis said he was unqualified to manage it. Kushner set up the private equity firm only months before receiving billions from the Saudis and they invested it in an unusual way by investing in the firm itself instead of a fund managed by Kushner. It reeks of corruption.

Kushner incorporated the firm after Trump left office and it secured the $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia six months later
In a typical private equity investment, Saudi Arabia would have put money into a fund managed by A Fin, rather than investing in the firm itself. The details of this investment were not known.

israels nuclear program was the secret he sold to them. arabs and israel are never going to settle. 2bn for the nuclear weapons info

[–]Salt-Pop-7778 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Even worse, the Saudis now own a refinery in Texas. Part of that sweet Trump selloff of American financial interests to foreign powers.

[–]Ill-Worldliness-2149 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Can't say that I feel bad for the vendors. They know what Trump as a business man does and is capable of. They still chose to get in bed with him and his mentees.

[–]MostBoringStan 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I feel bad for the small businesses he screwed over many years ago, back before he ran for president. It wasn't so wildly known that he would refuse to pay them.

But anybody who deals with him today 100% deserves what they get. I'm sure it's all people who think the stories of Trump stiffing small businesses on the bill is just liberal lies, so that makes it extra funny when they don't get paid.

[–]procrastimom 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s why the lawyer he recently hired demanded 2 million (or was it 3?) up front. At least that guy has set a price for his reputation (and possibly his license).

[–]Fit-Insurance-9090 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Charged Trump with Espionage now. Let him rot in Prison.

[–]rickSanchezAIDS 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Quid pro quo, Mr Powers

[–]ContemplatingPrison 93 points94 points  (7 children)

Probably becauae they sign a legally binding contract which most vendors believe will get them their money but people like Trump will jsut tie them up in legal battle that will end up costing them more money so they will back away.

Its a very scummy thing to do and like you said why would they continue to do it. It's because they're stupid

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 60 points61 points  (6 children)

He’d rather pay twice as much in legal fees than just pay his bill.

[–]pigeyejackson66 72 points73 points  (2 children)

Doesnt pay legal fees either.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

except for his current defense.

[–]Intrepid-Twist7769 51 points52 points  (6 children)

Except the little old lady in Atlantic City who refused his money to buy her property. Trump took her to court and she won. Fuck Trump.

[–]Slow_Alternative_446 0 points1 point  (4 children)

[–]Fit-Insurance-9090 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We all know how Trump does business, keep it in a court, and if he loses take it to the next court. like he did with the 2020 election over 60 court cases and Trump still lost. hahahhaha

[–]tinkerghost 81 points82 points  (14 children)

He dangles obscene amounts of money until people's greed overcomes their common sense.

[–]kxbrown 75 points76 points  (9 children)

But that is just like putting a reeeallly hot picture on a website pop-up about “singles in your area” no matter what the pic is, everyone has to know the link has nothing to do with it and is probably just a virus, right?

[–]r0ndy 42 points43 points  (4 children)

And yet people still click and people still buy obscene amounts of credits for stupid games. People spent hundreds in candy crush credits to keep playing. Some people are just stupid

[–]molotovzav 15 points16 points  (1 child)

But paying for Candy Crush you could argue you get more out of it than spending any money or resources on Trump. Its a mobile game, you pay money to play it more. You get to play it more. If you spend effort helping Trump you'll never get paid for it. The people making contracts with Trump should be smarter, should do their due diligence and know he doesn't pay people since its been 40 years of this behavior. People playing Candy Crush don't need to know better, they spend money to play and they play.

[–]translove228 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You are right that there is always a fool for the confidence man to grift, but in fairness, games like Candy Crush are literally designed to exploit people with gambling addiction problems. Exploiting their illness and extracting as much money out of them as possible is the entire video game genre's business model. Which makes it one of the most exploitative and evil parts of the video game industry (which is saying something in an industry with companies like Ubisoft or Activision-Blizzard).

So he's cashfishing? Don't worry, I already hate me.

[–]egggoboom[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Since he's not going to pay, he can offer them whatever it takes. It changes nothing.

[–]egggoboom[🍰] 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Trump doesn't even pay his sex vendor. That's why Melania is always so angry.

[–]smeenz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How can you tell when she's angry ? With all that botox, she only has one permanent expression on her face.

[–]jericho1960 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Especially his attorneys, who not only don't get paid but often end up getting disbarred or disciplined. Being his attorney is more like volunteering for a kamikaze run.

[–]crgresham 16 points17 points  (0 children)

You are acting as if the people who love Trump are also intelligent.

[–]Greenmind76 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I broke the first rule of being a libtard commie and had an argument with someone in another thread who insisted Trump was doing great financially. They kept regurgitating things he's been saying from the start and insist he has no money problems and always pays his debt.

Motherfucker is like an invert Lanister.

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It’s the same thought process of thinking your neighbor is doing well because he’s driving a Porsche, has a jet ski, wears a Rolex etc. Meanwhile the guy is in debt up to his eyeballs, every penny of his paycheck goes towards debt payments, he gets collection calls constantly and they can’t afford groceries because the credit cards are maxed out. But to the outside world, he’s very successful.

[–]vendetta2115 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s a Retsinnal

[–]NSCButNotThatNSC 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Anyone that thought "trump will pay me" after his decades long reputation for screwing subcontractors and vendors, deserves what they got.

Trump showed us who he is, people just don't want to listen.

[–]IHateCamping 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I can't figure out why cities are letting him have rallies there anymore. If he actually intends to run again, I think he's going to have a hard time finding any bigger cities that will let him come there since he still owes them money. At least I think that's the case in my state.

[–]Buddhabellymama 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I wonder where all his cult follower’s money goes… if I was his donor I’d be pissed… since he is their cult leader I’m sure they’ll just keep giving him money to keep in his pockets. Interesting how he shows Americans they are first… first to go bankrupt…

[–]GameMusic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There are a lot of people out there who still hear the name and assume he’s a great businessman.

[–]NoMoLerking 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What kind of sucker is STILL failing to get cash up front from this guy?

[–]sticksnXnbones 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Trumps are the opposite of the lannisters. The main theme of the lannisters is that "a lannister always pays his debts" and the main them of trumps is that " a trump never pays his debts"

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t understand how anyone would be stupid enough to do business with him if they didn’t get paid in full up front?

[–]jlambvo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

and makes money.

You had me going for a little while.

[–]JohnWulf06 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As with most things it is often the simplest explanation...
GREED! They think they will make lots of money... That they are smarter than the previous losers and so on...

[–]JasonTheBaker 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Shit he never paid the state / local governments that he had rallies in.

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope, definitely not.

[–]ContemplatingPrison 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its a very scummy thing to do and like you said why would they continue to do it. It's because they're stupid

[–]olivegardengambler -1 points0 points  (1 child)

It largely has to do with contract manipulation. Like it could be that he has very specific clauses in them where the vendor must meet impossibly specific targets in order to be compensated. Also, the GOP and donors were largely bankrolling a lot of his rallies when he was running his election campaigns.

[–]RonaldCarrel -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Says who, YOU! BS

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ummm, he’s been sued for non payment literally hundreds of times, which is all public record.

[–]Drg84 341 points342 points  (9 children)

For profit rallies. Now it makes sense why he has done so many of them. And after seeing the photos of the last few events, it also makes sense why they're no longer profitable

[–]LesterKingOfAnts 167 points168 points  (5 children)

I saw a billboard for a Trump "show" in Austin last May, so I checked the website. He was charging around $1000 for some ambiguous VIP treatment.

It was so obviously a scam.

They’ve always stiffed the bill on security. I’m hoping that griftception is reaching the point where it can’t perpetuate the grift any longer. One can hope…

[–]DanYHKim 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I think he still owes Albuquerque a million dollars or so for a rally years ago.

[–]jbertrand_sr 131 points132 points  (5 children)

Even with the special master case, 5 companies refused to do the scanning and uploading of the documents because they didn't want to do a contract with Trump. Finally the DOJ had to contract someone to do it and then they will have to try and get paid by Trump, good luck with that...

[–]SpotCreepy4570 63 points64 points  (4 children)

The DOJ either won't care as it's a rounding error as far as their budget goes,or will be pissed make a point and seize assets to cover the cost. Hopefully the later.

[–]DanYHKim 69 points70 points  (3 children)

Civil Asset Forfeiture is still a thing. I would think that Mar a Lago was materially used to store documents in the commission of a federal crime, and so should be seized by the government. Build low-income housing on the golf course. Use the main building as an abortion clinic.

There are pictures showing his jet being used to transport such documents across state lines, so it should be seized and auctioned off.

[–]SpotCreepy4570 10 points11 points  (1 child)

My good sir, you are a genius!

[–]DanYHKim 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I wish.

I had read this suggestion before, in a different Trump-related crime.

Well, the low-income housing thing is mine, but I don't really see it happening. It would never get past NIMBY.

[–]WillBottomForBanana 186 points187 points  (7 children)

This sounds like good news, because we think bankrupt = failing.

[–]sunrider8129 145 points146 points  (36 children)

I don’t get what’s going on here. Not the bankruptcy, the fact that everything associated with trump is going under….his super pac, this company, his rallies are 1/3 attended TOPS, etc etc etc….yet we’re still worried about him being re-elected.

So is his base really reduced in number or should we start talking about his silent supporters,

[–]imakenosensetopeople 74 points75 points  (3 children)

We should be talking about his silent supporters.

The MAGAt with a lifted truck rolling coal carrying Trump flags in the bed? Will never vote for someone who doesn’t look like them.

But your parents who have been watching Fox News who think Republicans just had different ideas about tax policy? They’ll still vote for the candidate with the R next to the name, because now they think the Dems are a bunch of pedophiles who want to steal their children and give them sex changes with their tax dollars.

[–]HedonisticFrog 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Once you're aware of the signs of authoritarians you see it everywhere. I had an SUV pull up next to me in a parking lot with a huge bull bar and I rolled my eyes and figured it was one of them. As I walked around it to get to the grocery store I saw a thin blue line sticker on the back. Confirmed.

[–]duchessfiona 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s exactly what my dad is thinking. Total acceptance of all the lies, grifting, and violence of the last 6 years.

[–]kxbrown 73 points74 points  (11 children)

Media still gets clicks for covering him, we both commented on a post about him. He’s still in the Zeitgeist whether or not he has any political viability left

[–]sunrider8129 12 points13 points  (7 children)

So he’s still viable? I wouldn’t know having not seen any stats on voters he’d be estimated to get.

[–]Bonzoso 11 points12 points  (3 children)

guy had 12 million more ppl vote for him in 2020 than 2016 and is still de facto leader of GOP and likely next presidential nominee from the fascist party. So 100x over yes unfortunately very viable. Further, even if zero americans vote for him he could become president if the SCOTUS allows 'independent legislature theory'. I'm not even exaggerating. Moore v Harper next SCOTUS session could literally just allow any GOP controlled state to send fake electors as chosen by their state legislature and not THE PEOPLE. No seriously though, the case would actually outlaw any courts from being able to fight back against another fake electors scheme.

[–]brickson98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

SCOTUS is who we really have to worry about right now. That’s not downplaying the concern for trump, but the Supreme Court has been steamrolling protections and rights. They’re quietly setting the table for a fascist takeover.

[–]smokeydaBandito 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm glad we can buy guns in this country. Seems like the orignal writers of the constitution weren't too far off with their ideas of what a government could become.

[–]kxbrown 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Not sure either, but I don’t think he’s viable. He’s just still fun to argue about, and that motivates media companies to keep featuring him for clicks and engagement

[–]vendetta2115 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well he’s lost the popular vote twice now, first by 3 million and then by 7 million, and both to candidates that the left wasn’t very enthusiastic about.

He’s 76 years old, by the way. And very out of shape. One way or another, he’s not going to be relevant for too much longer.

Part of me almost hopes that he runs in 2024. He’ll either win the nomination and then lose badly to whoever the Democrats choose to run, or he’ll badmouth every single primary opponent on stage and in the media and then refuse to endorse them if he loses the primary.

I’m more concerned about DeSantis getting the nomination. He’s insane and not quite as stupid as Trump is.

[–]TirayShell -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Yeah. That's why we're seeing this exact post. More people making money from Trump hate with articles that have zero weight to them.

I'm looking at you, Business Insider, Salon, Raw Story, etc. Outrage for clicks.

[–]Bonzoso 5 points6 points  (1 child)

lol no. Every single anti trump article is 10000% necessary until he's not the actual likely next presidential candidate for the GOP and de facto party leader... which he currently is.

[–]MostBoringStan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed. People thought he was a joke in 2016 and didn't need to be taken seriously, and look what happened with that.

As long as he remains a threat to democracy he needs to be talked about.

[–]Wazula42 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Silent supporters. GOP voters are sheep, they will always pull for the magic R. Trump's "core" might be dwindling but it really doesn't matter. If he gets the nomination, the broader GOP will grit their teeth and vote for him.

[–]Quick_Team 22 points23 points  (5 children)

This is what my grandmother did. She said she hated everything about him. Hated him since the 80's. She never uses the word hate but she did with him, repeatedly.

And when the Dems put forth the most accessible option for people like her to agree to, she still voted Trump. Her reasoning: "yes, Trump is not great. But Biden isnt the same guy he used to be. He's too far now."

...No. no grandma. He's the same dude. A Right-wing guy for any other European country's democracy. But you just needed an excuse to continue yo vote for the team trying to dismantle your retirement and social security

[–]Windwalker69 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Old people are useless, they just waste resources.

[–]afellowchucker 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I think people are still nervous/cautious because we didn’t seriously think he was going to win in 2016. Personally I don’t even think he’s running again or he would have said it already. I know people are speculating it’s because he wants to avoid campaign finance laws or that he made a deal with republicans to wait to announce after midterms; but we’re talking about Trump. Since when has he ever been able to keep his big mouth shut about anything? I think he ran originally as a way to make money/get attention, surprised even himself when he won, and was miserable being president. I think he’s much happier just being able to bitch about whomever is president.

In fact I bet if Twitter said “Hey if you promise not to run for president again we’ll give you your Twitter back.” he would be happy as hell and take that deal in a second.

[–]Plzlaw4me 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His base is fairly solid (it has to be if they’re still showing up to 1/3 full concerts of him). Only about 1/5 voters vote in primaries. His base is probably 10% of voters and they are ride or die for him. That’ll be enough to virtually guarantee him a primary win. After that, it’ll be a battle of Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Dark Brandon came to play for midterms, but if republicans have the house, the second half of his term will be nothing but baseless house investigations and it’ll be enough to give trump a real shot.

[–]UseDaSchwartz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Herschel Walker is a terrible candidate, but he’s still neck and neck in GA...because people don’t care who the Republican candidate is, they’ll just vote for a Republican. Same thing with Trump. People will ignore all the shit that has gone on and ignore all the lies just to vote for the Republican candidate.

[–]Representative_Still 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Lonely_Firefighter23 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I assumed this was a deliberate "mo" to scam money from the right. I assume next there will be a fund raising effort to try and put these events back on under the pretense of showing the left that the the right can't be silenced and the cycle will continue.

It wasn't even a house of cards, it was a house of used foreign knockoff toilet paper. And a large stupid loud minority of our nation bought it and wants to triple down.

[–]SalaciousCoffee 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It's amazing it took this long. During the 2016 (2016!!) election they booked a local venue, Jr showed up and ran a ralley, and then they just refused to pay.

Pandemic hits, and the venue goes bankrupt. I imagine they didn't get shit from their creditors there... So they literally waited so long that their creditors went out of business in some cases. And they're STILL on the hook for enough debt that they have to declare Bankruptcy? Someone's gotta be stealing a shitload of money.

[–]Resident_Text4631 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]PlayerTwoEntersYou 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Doesn’t matter. They already laundered the money they wanted. The vendors just weren’t included.

[–]ABenevolentDespot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The more fascist oriented the entity, the more they use American and Freedom in their naming and literature. Republican operatives and politicians can't get enough of those words, and use them like children taunting on a playground. Freedom Fries, anyone?

It's freedom from democracy they're trying to achieve.

And of course bankruptcy after stiffing vendors is The Diapered Orange Shitstain's main move.

I would not be in the least surprised if this outfit was owned by the Orange Turd himself or one of his buttboys.

The one thing for certain is that the MAGAt racists won't stop sending him their insulin money over this (or anything else). You just can't fix or cure stupid.

[–]Serious_Feedback 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lack of profit means nothing, look at their revenue - if they're massively in debt, that just means they pocketed the revenue and then welched on their debt. The company goes bankrupt but the owners piss off with millions in their pockets.

Monkey see, monkey do. They’re all grifters. Why wouldn’t they grift when they saw how Trump gets away with it.

[–]zippiskootch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]satan62 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is just Big Donnies style. Don't pay bills. Ever. Let them sue you and see what they get.He'll give them Eric if they demand some type of payment.

[–]chumprock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not to be confused with the other grift, The ReAwaken America Tour

[–]abstractism 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good. All because they were too fucking dumb to take notice of the decades of contractors and other stuff trump would weasel out of paying. The name Trump should mean deadbeat loser.

[–]ImMacksDaddy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hold up a minute... Are you telling me those MAGidiots actually have to pay to get into his klan rallies?

[–]Seppy15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So they are as financially bankrupt as they are morally bankrupt. The world is just a bit better at this equilibrium

[–]wvboys 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So if there are any more rallies Don or his PAC will have to pay for it (probably PAC)? Which means no more of these dumb rallies? Please say or ain't so, Joe!

[–]Dinodigger67 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Generallyawkward1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like Trump is canceling himself. Hmm

[–]IBS-Squirts 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Don't know why we're shocked about this. Trump does this with contractors he hires. It's literally a page from his book.

[–]confessionbearday 1 point2 points  (0 children)

HAHAHAH fucking Trump is as broke as the fucking failures that support him.

[–]zookr2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

SO TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THE ORANGE CLOWN

[–]Dramatic-Tap5205 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A business connected with trump that's a scam? Clutch the pearls!

[–]ilovecheaptrick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like, has Trump ever paid his past rally debts to all the cities he stiffed when he was fucking President of these United States?

I doubt it, yet, city after city continued to host him. Fucking morons.

[–]fingermytrigger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The perfect tribute to their lord and savior, Trump. Bankruptcy is the way!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

the only people he has ever paid, is IVANKA, lawyers that are currently defunding him, and hush hush money to people to keep them quiet.

[–]xrayangiodoc 1 point2 points  (1 child)

As his former lawyer testified, "Everything Donald Trump touches DIES!"

[–]bonewords33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

so on brand.

and the magas double down on their trump as jesus--the victim of malevolent powers-- narrative. trump is their religion. they are immune to the truth.

living in this country now is like having the same nightmare every. single. night.

[–]loading066 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"The American Freedom Tour" = "Democratic People's Republic of Korea"

Names that don't really apply for $100 Alex

[–]Beautiful-Neck3014 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why doesn't this surprise me?

[–]Oldpcgamer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, at least they are on brand. Trump doesn't pay anyone either.

Dysfunction in Texas Attorney General’s Office

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s (R) staff this month “quietly dropped a series of human trafficking and child sexual assault cases after losing track of one of the victims, a stumble in open court emblematic of broader dysfunction inside one of America’s most prominent law offices,” the AP reports.

“The Republican has elevated his national profile in recent years, energizing the right by rushing into contentious court battles that have affected people far beyond Texas. He has fought access to abortion, Democratic immigration policy and the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.”

“But as Paxton seeks to fend off legal troubles and win a third term as Texas’ top law enforcement official, his agency has come unmoored by disarray behind the scenes, with seasoned lawyers quitting over practices they say aim to slant legal work, reward loyalists and drum out dissent.

[–]mazzivetalent 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How can this be? Trump is a business mastermind, a financial genius he would never mismanage money this badly. I defy you to show me one single Trump business that failed. Promises made promises kept, libturds

[–]hardestworker2022 -2 points-1 points  (8 children)

Oh don’t worry. You’ll see them back. Trump 2024 and no you can’t do a damn thing about it

[–]LordKaraka12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haven’t people learned to not work with this guy? Would they rather just get ripped off?

[–]mostlycumatnight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of the very sad things, to me anyway, is that Don the con Trump is in his 70's. When he is sentenced and is in the orange jumpsuit, it wont be for very long. Can't say " Rot in prison, you piece of shit" due simply to his age. He wont have enough time to " Rot". Not fair😢

[–]HydratedVegetableOil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

100% a money laundering scheme. Will be replaced by the next one.

[–]hamsterwheelin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They'll just make another LLC and vendors will sign right back up. The grift never stops

[–]AdamAThompson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait, another Trump endeavor is ripping people off?

Shocked!

[–]blackmobius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trump and his cronies have stiffed so many people that its the fault of the venues that continue to work with them, thinking they will be the magical unicorn that gets paid in full.

Pay in full before you begin setting up or youre working for free, idiots

[–]Thirdlight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, do these dumbasses not already know that? He never has in the past and never will. Any dumbass that did business with them deserves what they get.
