USA TODAY — the newspaper that insists on using all-caps the way your great uncle did when he first got email — has found hundreds of workers who say they’ve been stiffed by Donald Trump… including painters, carpenters and even the lawyers he used to stiff his ex-employees and contractors.
Trump shrugged off the report Thursday, saying he doesn’t feel obligated to pay bills when he’s unhappy with the work, which may also be his excuse for not paying income taxes for at least two years in the ’70s. Listen, he’ll pay when America is great again, okay?
Meanwhile, if the stories about stiffing his workers resonate with the public, Trump may have to come up with another reason for not paying them — like maybe the workers’ ethnic heritage.
