14 Dark Secrets Of Donald Trump

1. He has ties to the mob.

In Sydney, Australia, a Trump partnership petitioned for a new casino license in 1986. The Police recommended that the Trump application be rejected due to ties to the Mafia after conducting their due diligence during the application process.

The information was in a confidential government document that could only be made public in 2017.

A federal investigation revealed that Trump paid mafia organizations to construct Trump Tower. 

He purchased allegedly overpriced concrete from a business run by mafia lords Paul Castellano and Anthony Salerno. 

According to some claims, he might be connected to the Italian and Russian mafias.

2. He is bald.

Of fact, there is nothing particularly wrong with being bald, so why go to such lengths to hide it?

Donald Trump combs his lengthy sideburns in various directions to conceal his bald head.

He underwent “scalp reduction” surgery, which his then-wife Ivana’s plastic surgeon conducted. Trump was reportedly in excruciating pain after the procedure, which went poorly.

3. He has abused women.

Donald Trump has frequently been charged with harassing and assaulting women, dating back to the early 1970s and continuing up until the present.

Ivana, his ex-wife, once alleged that he had sexually assaulted her; however, she later recanted her claims. 

Beauty pageant owner Jill Harth filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump after former adolescent contestants alleged he would stroll in on them when they were half-naked or otherwise undressed.

 Even he had verbally admitted to unlawfully grabbing and molesting women in a 2005 video.

4. Dark Connections to Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump has dubbed Russian president Vladimir Putin “a strong Leader” and suggested that Obama should be more like him.

He even sarcastically asked the Kremlin to hack Hillary’s emails.

Paul Manafort, who received substantial sums of money from governments backed by Russia, served as Trump’s Campaign manager when he made some of his most pro-Putin comments.

Trump later fired Manafort, but the connections continued. Time revealed numerous hazy connections between Trump’s businesses and Kremlin-affiliated Russian interests.

Trump appears closely connected to Putin’s Russia, as evidenced by several commercial agreements partially financed by the Russian Mafia and key Trump staffers related to Putin’s inner circle.

5. He went bankrupt four times.

Donald Trump has reportedly filed for commercial bankruptcy at least four times, throughout 1991, 1992, 2004, and 2009 despite never having done so for his debts.

He used junk bonds and lousy debt in each instance, many of which involved casinos, and made poor choices and took on excessive risk.

In response to the criticism, Trump claimed that firms frequently have to declare bankruptcy and that it was a wise financial decision each time he did so.

People still think he’s a terrific businessman despite all this.

6. Operating a Scam University

Trump University was not an Academic University in the typical sense. Their teachers, who offered free seminars on how to amass wealth like Trump, were schooled as salesmen.

However, everything was a bait-and-switch ruse of students into several pricey packages on how to study more once they attended the workshops. Among them, one cost $35,000.

7. He knowingly hired illegal immigrants.

During his Campaign, Donald Trump promised to build a wall along the Mexican-American border to keep illegal immigrants out. In a meeting at the White House, Trump referred to illegal immigrants as “animals.” 

He routinely characterized immigrants as “criminals” when campaigning. But in the 1980s, Trump knowingly hired undocumented immigrants to assist in the construction of Trump Tower.

Although Trump denies it, he was aware that he was hiring illegal immigrants, according to many witnesses from the incident, including an FBI informant who gave testimony under oath. They claimed that he forced them to labor seven days a week in a hazardous setting without safety equipment. 

8. Running A Scam Charity

The Donald J. Trump Foundation is an unusual charity. The money it raises doesn’t always go to good causes. Trump has previously used its funds to treat himself to insane gifts.

In one case, Trump used $20,000 of the foundation’s cash to buy a painting of himself that was 2 meters (6 ft) high. There is literally no definition of the word “charity” that includes buying paintings of Donald Trump for Donald Trump.

This would be one thing if the charity used Trump’s own money. It doesn’t. The foundation is funded entirely by other philanthropists. Unusually for a foundation, its founder hasn’t given since 2008. Instead, Trump has used the foundation’s charitable status to get donations from other rich people.

Then he gives these donations away to second charities, making himself look philanthropic. He even won an award for giving $150,000 to a police association . . . despite every cent originally coming from the Evans Foundation.

9. Terrorizing Tenants

In 1981, Trump purchased a building off Central Park hoping to demolish it and turn it into condos. The residents living there refused to move. Trump responded by acting like the landlord from hell.

For five years, Trump cut off heat and hot water, even during freezing New York winters. He refused to fix leaks. He allowed a rat infestation to take hold. He told the building manager to spy on tenants. He allowed a construction team to start work at 7:00 AM every day directly above an apartment where an old woman lay dying of cancer. When she complained, he did nothing.

Things got really bizarre when Trump decided he would house homeless people in the building. Residents said it was a ploy to drive them out. The whole thing wound up in court, and Trump eventually backed down. He now denies the incidents ever took place.

10. Using Campaign Contributions To Buy His Own Book

Many ordinary people have contributed to Donald Trump’s campaign. Most of them probably expected their money to go toward defeating Hillary in November. Very few of them likely expected Trump to use their money to buy $55,000 worth of his own book.

To be fair, some high-profile writers have been known to bulk-buy 500 copies of their latest work. But they don’t use presidential campaign funds or buy between 3,000–5,000 copies at retail price.

The retail price bit is important because it suggests that Trump may have been using campaign funds to get himself on The New York Times Best Sellers list. At best, this is deeply narcissistic. At worst, Trump may have been hoping to pocket the royalties.

The Daily Beast claims that he was doing just that—a move which would be deeply illegal.

11. Political Irresponsibility

In July 2016, The New York Times ran a quote from a member of John Kasich’s campaign staff with disturbing implications. They claimed that Trump’s long-term political plan is essentially to hand the office of president over to his vice president after the election.

The staffer claimed that Kasich had been offered the role of vice president by Trump. Trump’s campaign asked if Kasich would like to be “the most powerful vice president in history.” He’d take over domestic and foreign policy.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s role would simply be “making America great again.” In other words, Kasich would have been president, with Trump acting as a self-glorifying figurehead.

If true, this is hugely irresponsible. It suggests that Trump wants to win and then just step aside. Aside from being unprecedented, it would also amount to lying to the electorate and using something as serious as a presidential election for nothing more than trivial games.

12. Accusations Of Racism

For over 40 years, Trump has been dogged by accusations of racism.

In 1973, Trump and his father were sued by the Department of Justice for refusing to rent to blacks. Although Trump never admitted wrongdoing, he was forced to sign an agreement that he wouldn’t discriminate against blacks in the future.

In the 1980s, two Trump casinos were accused of forcing black people off the floor when high rollers were playing. One casino was found guilty and fined. In 1991, a book claimed that Trump said laziness was a trait in blacks.

The accusations go on. In 1989, Trump took out a full-page ad in NYC, calling for the execution of four black teenagers suspected of raping a white woman in Central Park. All four were later found innocent.

13. Belief In Conspiracy Theories

A basic qualification for president is the ability to distinguish between serious, real-world matters and paranoid Internet conspiracy theories. Donald Trump fails to reach this standard. Over the years, he has repeatedly stated his own belief in utter nonsense.

Famously, Trump long believed the “birther” theory that Obama wasn’t born in the US. Trump has also claimed that climate change is a Chinese conspiracy to undercut US manufacturing, vaccines give children autism, Ted Cruz’s father assassinated JFK, and Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered.

Trump also thinks that America’s unemployment rate is 42 percent, but the real figure is hidden to make Obama look good. For the record, it’s around 5 percent.

These are not normal things for a presidential candidate to believe. At best, they show Trump is exceptionally naive. At worst, they show he’s actively unbalanced.

14. Needless, Endless Lying

Trump has been accused of lying countless times during his campaign. It’s one thing to hear a random website say it. It’s another to hear an admission coming straight from Trump’s mouth. In a 2007 court case, Trump was asked under oath to verify the truth of multiple past statements. He wound up admitting that 30 of them were lies.

The lies ranged from the size of his wealth to recent business deals he’d made to the number of people on his payroll. Some were exaggerations. Some were distortions. Some were just straight-up lies. All are now on file in court documents.

This is important because Trump’s campaign is built on telling unpalatable truths. In the primaries, he even made a point of calling Ted Cruz “Lyin’ Ted.”
