Here’s a familiar story: Donald Trump routinely stiffs the people that work for him.
The Republican presidential nominee may be forced to sell the Trump National Doral Miami golf club if he does not pay off a series of liens filed against his business.
According to the Miami Herald, a new lien just filed on Tuesday by local construction firm Straticon LLC marks the 23rd(!) lien against the Trump property.
According to the paperwork, Starticon says it’s still owed $236,472 for its work on the three-year project, which ended in June. […]
But the lien comes in the wake of filings by 22 other contractors or subcontractors claiming that the Republican presidential nominee’s Trump Endeavor 12 LLC, the golf club’s owner, failed to pay their contracts in full.
Trump’s business attorney has responded by implying that this is a matter of routine, saying that “20 liens isn’t a big deal,” but this isn’t happening in a vacuum. Trump’s entire record of business dating back several decades is overflowing with people stiffed after working for Trump businesses. Trump has been involved in over 5,000 lawsuits and many of them stem from Trump’s refusal to pay for services rendered.
Maybe this is a routine matter for Trump. That’s exactly the point, isn’t it? Refusing to pay the people who work for him is a matter of course for Donald Trump and it’s even a part of his presidential campaign.
Trump recently threatened not to pay the hotel that hosted one of his rallies because the air conditioner wasn’t cranked high enough in the ballroom.
