In one of the most despicable interviews of all time Trump made a case to the public to release Mike early in the attempts to make money.



Money is Donald Trumps God.
Tyson wasn't influenced by Don King. He considered Cus D'Amato a real father and was devastated when he passed away.

See the documentary Tyson before writing again on the subject.

Exactly, there are none as she will just ride the failed policies of Hope and Change. Her campaign slogan should just be "More of the Same".

I am well aware of the story of Mike Tyson. I don't really get how you could say that King was in no way an influence on Iron Mike even if he wasn't the father figure that Cus was.

That is besides the point though, that Donald tried to get a convicted rapist out of jail to make more profit.

They have a trusted business relationship. Whether Trump even believes the accuser's tale is another matter.

It really wasn't up to what Donald Trump believed. A jury ruled that Mike Tyson beat and raped a woman. He was sentenced to a state penitentiary. At which time the Donald saw money slipping through his fingers, and tried to convince everyone he should be released.

Well, Tyson's endorsement just counterbalances David Duke's endorsement, which I don't believe Trump has yet disavowed.

Actually, Tyson was influenced by King. After D'Amato's death, Tyson came under King's influence and fired his long-time trainer and D'Amato protege, Kevin Rooney. His personal life began unraveling after that.
