Lawsuit heading for trial shows Trump's appeal to the easily scammed - 2020-05-20
In the hierarchy of Trump atrocities this ranks relatively low. Yet it's the type of thing, like Trump University, that you'd think would render one automatically disqualified for higher office.
It's also the type of thing that actual super-wealthy people, of the sort that Trump likes to portray himself, just don't engage in. Actual super-wealthy people like Betsy DeVos, own scams like Amway, they don't pitch for it.
At some point, probably a few years after he's out of office, I think we'll eventually find out that Trump was actually net broke all along, and just juggling creditors and debt, even through his presidency.
