Here’s another case of Trump and his business empire skipping out on their debts – Trump’s controversial Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida has been ordered by a judge to pay up after wrongfully avoiding thousands in payments to a mom-and-pop paint shop nearby in Florida.
Many reports prove that this is just how Trump does business – he and the people surrounding him are total frauds. The only thing they care about is increasing their own bottom line.
It is at least a little bit refreshing to see that our legal system still does work in some cases – Trump is being ordered to pay up.
The Miami Herald reports:
While developer Donald Trump was busy getting the Republican Party’s presidential nomination this week, he was losing big in a Miami-Dade County courtroom.
Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto, presiding over a lawsuit related to unpaid bills brought by a local paint store against the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort, ordered the billionaire politician’s company to pay the Doral-based mom-and-pop shop nearly $300,000 in attorney’s fees.
All because, according to the lawsuit, Trump allegedly tried to stiff The Paint Spot on its last payment of $34,863 on a $200,000 contract for paint used in the renovation of the home of golf’s famed Blue Monster two years ago.
Trump National’s insistence that it had “paid enough” for the paint despite a contract, according to the lawsuit, caused The Paint Spot to slap a lien on the property and Cueto to order the foreclosure sale of the resort.
In time, Donald Trump’s company got the judge to cancel the June 28 courthouse auction after it placed the $34,000 in escrow, and the case was put on hold while Trump National’s owner, Trump Endeavor, considered an appeal.
Trump’s legal problems are facing a new round scrutiny from thousands of Americans as the popular liberal blog Daily Kos blasted the story out to their followers this week.
Daily Kos reports:
Unpopular President Donald Trump’s unpopularity as a bigoted incompetent leader is only rivaled by his unpopularity as a incompetent “business” owner and fraud artist. This past summer a Miami-Dade County circuit court ordered the (maybe) billionaire to pay over $300,000 to a Florida paint shop after trying to stiff them out of monies owed in relation to work on some renovations for one of Trump’s golf courses.
… Yup. Trump’s a real winner. The reason he files for bankruptcy every few years is because he has to.
