Corruption
1. Tax return revelations show that he has paid no income tax over the past couple of
decades, and brags about it, and has repeatedly lied about being unable to release tax
returns under audit e​ ven after the IRS and every economist and tax expert have come
out and said that this is not the case. He has not even provided evidence that he is under
audit. In fact, he could release the first two pages of his tax returns, which detail
deductions, income, and charitable giving (among other things), since these aren’t
affected by audit. He has refused to do so for unknown reasons.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/09/16/donald-trump-tax-returns-495955.html)
2. He has a long history of tax evasion and trouble with the IRS, with nearly a hundred
cases documented.

3. Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts Inc. Outright lied to the US Securities and Exchange
Commision (SEC) in 1999 by excluding a one time charge of 80 million dollars (while
including a one time charge of 17 million), because if they didn’t the total earnings
wouldn’t have met prior expectations. The SEC ordered a cease-and-desist.

4. Solicited donations from Scottish politicians just before he visited Scotland.

9. Trump’s SoHo hotel illegally kept the 22% service fee that is supposed to go to the staff

11. In 1981, Trump bought a building facing Central Park, and attempted to force the current
tenants out by cutting heat and water, and imposing strict building rules.
(http://money.cnn.com/2016/03/28/news/trump-apartment-tenants/)
12. Trump asked the building manager to spy on the tenants, even detailing their habits and
activities. When the tenants and Trump’s organization discussed an offer for the tenants
to buy the property for $15 million to end all the drama, his organization then sued for
$150 million for “coercing a bargain sale of the building”.
(http://money.cnn.com/2016/03/28/news/trump-apartment-tenants/)

(http://www.nytimes.com/2000/10/06/nyregion/trump-and-others-accept-fines-forads-in-opposition-to-casinos.html)
21. Hundreds of other lawsuits, fraud cases, and law violations (obviously not all were found
guilty.)
22.When Trump, in 1973, was on trial for discriminating against minorities, he used a
number of delaying tactics until he eventually settled the case.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/11/11/donald-trump-companies-destroyed-emailsdocuments-515120.html)
23.First he said that the government asked him to release statements without telling him,
swearing under oath that he “first heard about it in the car radio”. However, court and
phone records show that they filed the request at 10AM and called him immediately
after.
24.He then countersued for $100 million dollars, delaying the process further.
25.He ignored discovery demands - legal requirements to turn over documents - even
challenging their necessity. After 6 months of ignoring deadlines and demands, the
attorney called and was told they had no plans to answer any questions.
26.When granted a subpoena, Trump admitted that they had been destroying
all corporate documents for six months and didn’t have any document
retention program in order to “save space”.
27. When they announced a date to investigate the headquarters, Trump pretended they
didn’t know it was supposed to be that day. He then claimed that they were harassed by
the investigators, even employees who made sworn statements later refused to testify
under oath.
28.After a year and a half, they finally reached a settlement where Trump’s
organization agreed to no discrimination against minorities. The
government sent in undercover minority applicants, and they were ​once
again discriminated against compared to the undercover white applicants.
Trump went to court again in 1978, where they once again reached a
settlement.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/11/11/donald-trump-companies-destroyed-emailsdocuments-515120.html)
29. Trump’s organization once failed to turn over emails and documents related to a lawsuit
because “they didn’t have any servers with emails”. Sworn statements by tech employees
in the organization later contradicted this, and technology service providers later
produced statements and evidence that they did indeed have email servers at the time.
Investigations showed that they didn’t have any email data before January 2001… the
same month Trump learned about information regarding the lawsuit.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/11/11/donald-trump-companies-destroyed-emailsdocuments-515120.html)
30. Trump once argued under oath that a “Donald Trump Development” is different from a
“Development By Donald Trump” to escape liability by fraud.
31. Trump called for South Korea to launch their own defense system, including nuclear
weapons program. Donald Trump’s business partner, Daewoo Engineering and

4

Construction, is the leading South Korean industry involved in nuclear energy and would
benefit immensely.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/09/23/donald-trump-foreign-business-deals-natio
nal-security-498081.html)
32. Donald Trump, on the GOP Debate Stage, claimed that he never approached Jeb Bush
about casinos (because “if he wanted them he would have gotten them”). However, in
2007, under sworn testimony, Donald Trump says that he ​did approach Bush, and was
unsuccessful.
(http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-jeb-bush-lie-florida-casino-gambling-502
144)
33. Donald Trump has released none of his oversea dealings and business partners in his
FEC filing, which he claimed “tells you everything a tax return would tell you” (which is
also a lie).
34. Trump’s first business partners in the UAE were convicted of fraud.
35.Donald Trump consistently refuses to put his businesses in a blind trust, and instead
wants his kids to run the businesses. He also wants his kids - including son-in-law - to
receive top secret security clearance and access to government briefings and information.
36. Ivanka Trump sat in on a meeting with Argentine foreign leaders with Trump, and the
foreign leaders were reportedly pressured to give building permits in Buenos Aires.
(http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-argentina-idUSKBN13H1MN)
37. Trump violated the Cuban embargo in 1999.

ed-florida-504059.html)
39.Donald Trump, despite his calls for American steel, has used Chinese steel for his
building projects.
(http://www.newsweek.com/how-donald-trump-ditched-us-steel-workers-china-5057
17)
40. He also used concrete from the Genovese Crime Family.
(http://www.newsweek.com/how-donald-trump-ditched-us-steel-workers-china-5057
17)
41. To hide his use of Chinese steel, he bought it through a company based in the British
Virgin Islands.
(http://www.newsweek.com/how-donald-trump-ditched-us-steel-workers-china-5057
17)
42. Trump says he had to make clothing line in China because things like that aren’t made in
America. That’s outright false.
(http://www.newsweek.com/how-donald-trump-ditched-us-steel-workers-china-5057

43. Trump destroyed valuable art he promised to save $30,000, and used a fake pseudonym

44. Over the span of a decade, Trump had a fake spokesperson (John Barron) that would
provide glowing reviews of Trump for reporters and papers. When asked under oath, he
admitted that he “may have used the name”.
(https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/03/21/the-amazing-storyof-donald-trumps-old-spokesman-john-barron-who-was-actually-donald-trump-hims

45. Donald Trump “persuaded” an elderly couple who owned an antique store to let him “try
out” a few valuable pieces, and then refused to return or pay for them.

(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/10/28/donald-trump-business-busts-victims-51103
4.html)
47. When magazine ​7 Days mentioned in a 1988 article that his apartments’ resale values
weren’t as high as marketing suggested, Donald Trump was outraged. He claimed he did
not want to sue, however, and that it was the “hordes of angry apartment owners” eager
to sue. After ​7 Days published an article complimenting his then-wife, Ivana, he
retracted his threats with no explanation for the supposed “angry horde”.
(http://www.newsweek.com/2016/10/28/donald-trump-business-busts-victims-51103
4.html)
48. Trump University was a useless course, which cost participants thousands of dollars.
Marketing was told to go after even people who couldn’t afford it. Part of the advertising
claimed that Trump handpicked professors, but under oath he couldn’t name any
professors (all the people confirmed to have taught there were unqualified to speak about
business). He recently settled the case for $25 million out of the $40 million the lawsuit
asked for, and is also paying $1 million in legal penalties for the scam.
49. When Trump was part of the United States Football League (USFL), he wanted to play in
the fall instead of the spring, in order to create an anti-monopoly lawsuit so his teams
could join the NFL and he could make a profit. The resulted in the entire thing falling
apart.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Football_League#USFL_v._NFL_laws

4.html)
