Well, of course he does. It works for him.

And this is the guy who wants to end "business as usual?"

Donald Trump is the ultimate example of "business as usual." Those with money acquire the power to do pretty much whatever they want. A donation here, an endowment there and local officials bend over backwards to appease these "givers" and give them more, more, more.

"He’s spent decades attempting to use the power of government to take people’s private property for his casinos, amusement parks, and parking lots. While the leading GOP candidate prides himself on being the ultimate capitalist, he’s actually something closer to a crony capitalist."


Donald Trump

Tea party members who speak about individual rights and freedom for these type of gov't enforced laws like ED need to take note.

He is continuing the tradition that anything the government wants, it gets. Either party.

As it's used by Trump and all too often, it's theft and an abuse of liberty.

Donald Trump
That's sickening. Because businesses that people may have spent a lifetime building are not as important as Trump getting to build the world's largest roller coaster. Because a home a person has lived in and cared for all her life is less important than Trump building a parking and limo waiting area for his big hotel.

Trump is all for being able to take your property so that he can make even more money. And a number of purportedly "small government" Republicans are all in for Trump.

Sickening.
