If anyone thinks Trump’s wall is *really* about U.S. border security or national security, they are being naive. It’s just another con game from an unintelligent unstable con man. americanprogress.org/issues/securit…
2/ “In 2006, Trump and LA-based real-estate development company #Irongate announced plans to develop a Trump-branded resort in northern #Baja, Mexico, to be called Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico. Trump and the developers spent two years marketing the resort and selling units.”
3/ “In short order, more than 80% of the condo units were sold, collecting a total of $32.5 million in buyer deposits. However, the resort was never built, although the Trump Organization still reportedly collected $500,000 in licensing fees.”
4/ “Many of the buyers sued Trump and partners for fraud, with most accusing Trump and 2 of his adult children, Ivanka and Don Jr., of duping them into believing that Trump was one of the developers, giving them the confidence that it was safe to buy unbuilt property in Mexico.”
5/ “The Trumps denied any wrongdoing, and in 2013, they settled the #fraud #lawsuit against them, the terms of which are confidential. #TrumpOrg Chief Legal Officer #AlanGarten called claims that buyers were deceived categorically untrue.”
6/ Sounding familiar yet? Funny how its the same story with this family over and over and over again.

Deceit, deception and denial. Rinse and repeat.
7/ In October 2016, #Mexican former congressman, #JaimeMartínezVeloz, filed a #criminal #taxfraud complaint with the Mexican federal gov’t against #Trump and the #Baja resort developers alleging they didn’t pay Mexican taxes on the $32.5 million predevelopment sales revenue.
8/ January 2017 #Trump signed an order to “speed up” the US/Mex border wall; coincidentally it was the same day #Martinez had added additional allegations regarding Trump to the criminal complaint.
9/ In 2007 #Trump signs agreement with Mexican businessman to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Mexico.

Who are #PedroRodriquez and #RodolfoRosasMoya? Why only sue one of them? And was Trump actually owed $12mil?
10/ Tangent: I have a feeling one day much more will come out about all of Trump’s “activities” involving the Miss Universe pageant. And considering he bought it in 1996...well...
11/ In 2015 Trump rants about Mexico increase. Angry much?
12/ Then of course there are #TrumpTrademarks.

- February 2016 Trump gives a speech at a campaign rally in South Carolina bashing Mexico for the loss of American jobs and businesses; at the same time a law firm in #MexicoCity filed trademark apps on behalf of Trump Org.
13/ - October 2016, the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property approved 1 of the trademarks.

- February 2017, it approved 3 more for construction; construction materials; hotels, hospitality and tourism; and real estate, financial services and insurance valid through 2026.
14/ More to this too I’m sure. Gotta love those LLC’s.
14/ “Mexico demonstrates that, again, because of Trump’s conflicts, his foreign policy views and positions continue to be influenced by his business interests.”

Anything said to the contrary is bs. His constant projection shows us its true.
15/ Keep in mind this article was written in June 14, 2017. Surely there is even more to add to this list at this point, if not Trump would likely have dropped the border security/wall fight...yet here we are 18 months later.
I must agree with Trump on one thing...”what we are seeing and hearing is not really happening”.

It is more than apparent that Trump and crew are completely full of shit and everything they say or do is a blatant #Lie, #CoverUp of some sort or there is an #UlteriorMotive. $$$
