Fraudster-in-Chief | Letter

In October 2016, a neighbor explained to me he was supporting then-presidential-candidate Donald Trump because Trump was a genius who received only $1 million from his father and built it into billions. Trump could do anything.

I thought, “Making money doesn’t mean you can govern.” But I asked, “What about the Trump University fraud lawsuit?” He said, “Trump’s a billionaire. He wouldn’t do that.” (Having worked 35 years with criminal offenders, I absolutely knew some criminal personalities would.)

I researched his arguments. Sen. Marco Rubio said Trump had received $200 million. Trump, a notorious liar, claimed receiving only $1 million. We can’t know the truth because Trump hid his taxes.

Recently, the New York Times documented that Trump conspired with his father to defraud Americans of millions of dollars of taxes, criminally transferring $400 million to Trump.

November 2016, Trump settled the Trump University fraud case, returning $25 million to his victims. Trump promised he would hand pick the instructors. He didn’t. Flunkies were hired. All the information was available free, online.

It was recently revealed that Trump committed felonies to keep voters uninformed of his immoral affairs. Trump’s Foundation was also found to be a fraud.

Decent people were scammed of money and their votes. The fraud continues.
