President Donald Trump and most of his family and associates are under constant fire for various forms of corruption allegations, mostly from leftists across the nation. Now, according to a bombshell report from by ProPublica , an 8-month investigation has uncovered financial activity and behavior in the Trump Organization that “shows deep family involvement in projects that often involved deceptive practices.”
Donald Trump’s deals have often been scrutinized for the large number of his partners who have ventured to the very edges of the law, and sometimes beyond. Associates included numerous accused money launderers, alleged funders of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and a felon “who slashed someone in the face with a broken margarita glass.”, the report points out.
Trump has made a pointed effort to distance himself and his company from being associated with these people by saying the Trump Organization had merely licensed his name on these real estate projects in exchange for a fee and they weren’t the developers or in any way responsible.
However, ProPublica and WNYC reveals that “the post-millennium Trump business model is different from what has been previously reported. The Trumps were typically way more than mere licensors or bystanders in their often-troubled deals. They were deeply involved in these projects. They helped mislead investors and buyers — and they profited handsomely from it.”
Ivanka Trump was instrumental as a spokeswoman for the organization, feeding false sales numbers to the press and personally bragging about made sales that never happened — which is illegal. Trump himself also told the media, on numerous occasions, that he was involved in projects that he actually had nothing to do with in an effort to give the perception of a businessman who was hands on in everything.
