USA TODAY exclusive: Hundreds allege Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills

Donald Trump casts himself as a protector of workers and jobs, but a USA TODAY NETWORK investigation found hundreds of people – carpenters, dishwashers, painters, even his own lawyers – who say he didn’t pay them for their work.

...he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

At least 60 lawsuits, along with hundreds of liens, judgments, and other government filings reviewed by the USA TODAY NETWORK, document people who have accused Trump and his businesses of failing to pay them for their work. Among them: a dishwasher in Florida. A glass company in New Jersey. A carpet company. A plumber. Painters. Forty-eight waiters. Dozens of bartenders and other hourly workers at his resorts and clubs, coast to coast. Real estate brokers who sold his properties. And, ironically, several law firms that once represented him in these suits and others.

Trump’s companies have also been cited for 24 violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act since 2005 for failing to pay overtime or minimum wage, according to U.S. Department of Labor data. That includes 21 citations against the defunct Trump Plaza in Atlantic City and three against the also out-of-business Trump Mortgage LLC in New York. Both cases were resolved by the companies agreeing to pay back wages.




In addition to the lawsuits, the review found more than 200 mechanic’s liens — filed by contractors and employees against Trump, his companies or his properties claiming they were owed money for their work — since the 1980s. The liens range from a $75,000 claim by a Plainview, N.Y., air conditioning and heating company to a $1 million claim from the president of a New York City real estate banking firm. On just one project, Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, records released by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission in 1990 show that at least 253 subcontractors weren’t paid in full or on time, including workers who installed walls, chandeliers and plumbing.


Christonacracker. I really hope there is no truth to any of this.

Cue the Trumpettes now to swoop in and defend their guy.

Of course not. Everyone knows Trump's and Clintons' pasts. It is unspeakable that those two are up for election and the third guy holding on is such a populist. And to boot, the sitting President uses his position to support a candidate. There is an awful lot wanting right now and we are lastly the ones at fault.

He's an utter slimeball. But since that is generally known, further revelations will not dissuade his supporters.

For some bizarre reason, they continue to think that he is an "outsider" and that that is all that would matter were it true.

What an astonishment.

That's okay, though. I'm sure that Democrats won't use this. Repeatedly. Endlessly. Successfully.


Well done, GOP Electorate. Well Done.

Don't blame me. I voted for Rubio.

(I'm giving serious consideration to making that my signature line, since it's appropriate like pretty much all day, every day on here)
