Probably forced to do business with them. They had concrete locked down in NY.
Yeah you can't be a NY real estate developer on that scale in the '80s without having to deal with the mob. He would have shaken hands and shared meals with heaps of them over the years. That's not Trump being a corrupt sack of shit (this time), that was just a fact of life in that industry.

There's a reason he hired Cohn as his lawyer. He could pay off the mob through Cohn's legal fees and nobody could prove he was doing anything untoward.

At the same time Cohn and the mob were collecting dirt on anyone and everyone they could exploit later.



Pretty sure the Australian government didn't allow Trump to set up a casino in Aus because of his ties to the mob.

Trump's far more streetwise and savvy than he leads us to believe.

Its hard to think a guy connected with the real estate business in the 80s and 90s wasn't in someway in contact with the mob, at least somewhat indirectly. The mob was deep in the labour and construction unions back then (probably still are).

He's already sucked more than $10k from my taxes over the last couple years so I'm no fan.

Asked my CPA what to do about it, he says "open a small business, you'll get those write-offs then". I says "but I don't want to have to work any more hours cause I already work too much", to this he replies "well then get yer check ready to send to the IRS in April". :sad5

Why dont you like JFK?
That fuckin moron almost cause ww3
Usa had Nukes in turkey (neighbouring russia) but when russia put nukes in Cuba JFK got angry.
If russia didn’t backed down we had ww3.
And why ? Like i said you had nukes in turkey so russia by the same morals had a right to put them in Cuba.

Furthermore he broke his word many times.
He Made deals with the MOB but when chosen president came back on Those deals.

Valid criticism but to play devils advocate he had to be tough. In fact Soviet archives state that Khrushchev had no respect for JFK and the USA. JFK also had to show europe that he wouldnt abandon them. Remember the Red Army wouldve been in Paris in days without nukes. DeGaule actually made the US promise to use nukes should the Soviets invade.

These were men who survived Stalins purges and WW2. At any point your name gets put on a piece of paper and signed by Stalin and youre dead.

After Cuba the Soviets realize the US means business and never threatens europe again and largely stays out of the western hemisphere

Trump wasn't forced into that world, he willingly became apart of it and thrived, seems Trump is very much suited to the compromised, dodgy way of life. His hands are dirty as fuck.

No excuse. Trump was in bed with the Mafia, fucking loved it by the look of things.
