This who he was and is.
Those who think he is not have been conned.
Shame on his surrogates who know the truth and damaged our society and country.
On Jan. 16, 1989, Time featured Trump on the cover with a story titled, “Young, handsome and ridiculously rich, Donald Trump loves making deals and money, loathes losing and has an ego as big as the Ritz — er, Plaza”—a reference to his latest hotel purchase. The essay featured many choice (and tweet-length) quotes: “Who has done as much as I have? No one has done more in New York than me,” “I love to have enemies. I fight my enemies. I like beating my enemies to the ground.” It pointed to his many unethical, racist, and often illegal real estate practices; the construction of his three-story, onyx and gold-embellished home atop Trump Tower; as well as colorful insults lobbed at journalists who criticized him and politicians who blocked his construction plans.
