With Florida a key part of Donald Trump’s chances for success in November, and Miami-Dade, Florida’s most populous county with the most Republicans, having 72% of its population Cuban-Americans, who are largely conservative and anti-Castro, a new revelation from Newsweek about Trump’s past may wreak havoc with Trump’s chances in the state.
Newsweek reports that a company controlled by Trump clandestinely did business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency even though such actions were illegal because of the Cuban embargo.
An American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. spent at least $68,000 in 1998, later reimbursed by Trump Hotels, in order to explore possible opportunities to build a casino in Cuba.
According to Newsweek, Trump had knowledge that executives had “funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.”Read the rest of the story HERE.
