I don't "admire" Trump, but neither do I condemn him as "sleazy" because several of his companies went bankrupt over time.

His admirers consist of tacky people with a little money who want to play at being masters of the universe.

In Palm Beach they make fun of the people who join his Mar-A-Lago club.

Trump's current attempt to steal the equity in a public casino company where he has a fiduciary duty to the minority shareholder's is amazing. He pushed the parent company into bankruptcy even though only one of the two subsidiary companies had financial problems and the assets weren't even cross collateralized. On top of that he spent the shareholders money to demolish a casino on now very valuable land that has no mortgage on it. He hopes to develop upscale condos on the Atlantic City boardwalk making not only a fortune on developing it himself but screwing the shareholders out of their equity in the land that should have been placed for sale on the open market. Trump must have a lot of friends in high places. If any of us attempted this it would be 30 years to life in prison.
