Trump is good at what he does. He is not afraid to do the things that most of us would never dream of. He wanted to invest in New York real estate in the mid 1970's but he needed massive tax cuts to afford his property. What does he do? Hires the lawyer for the head of the five NY crime families. Suddenly - he gets the city to cut him tax breaks for seemingly any investment. That act began his momentum that would go through many highs and lows but end up as the 45th President of the United States. Love him or hate him - he is not stupid but he will most likely rip you off.
