". . .the year after Governor Christie, a Republican, took office,
the state agreed to accept just $5 million, roughly 17 cents on
the dollar of what auditors said the [Trump] casinos owed."
Trump Casinos’ Tax Debt Was $30 Million.
Then Christie Took Office.
This photo of Deadbeat Don and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was taken after a sweetheart of a deal saving Deadbeat Don $25,000,000.00 was consummated.
This appears like, well, something. I'll let you decide what.
The basics of this story:
- In 2001, Deadbeat Don owed the state of New Jersey almost $30,000,000.00 in unpaid taxes.
- In 2002, Deadbeat Don's current transition chief (if he wins in November), Chris Christie became Governor of New Jersey.
- Somehow, someway, Deadbeat Don worked out a deal with Christie that essentially stiffed the people of New Jersey to the tune of $25,000,000 when the Governor's administration "forgave" that amount. Meaning DD only paid 17 cents on the dollar of his debt.
The fix was in?
