Trump documentary suppressed 25 years ago now available online!

I highly recommend this documentary. It was an eye opener for me because I was unfamiliar with the details of his 80's shenanigans. The producer of this documentary made it available online for free for viewing!

This film was suppressed 25 years ago.

The film was commissioned in 1988 by Leonard Stern as the first of a series on celebrity businessmen and finished in 1991. Back then, the only way for a film to be seen was on television or in the theater. Donald threatened to sue any broadcaster or distributor that took on the film. In effect, it was suppressed. It was screened twice in back-to-back standing room only showings at the Bridgehampton Community House on July 3, 1991, the same day that Donald announced his engagement to Marla Maples.

Allegedly the police found her "disheveled" and covered with sand on a deserted beach at 4 a.m. with her bodyguard. She claimed she fell while running.

What likely happened: Donald lost interest in her after this situation went public as he wanted to own her like everything else. He divorced her within the five-year period in the pre-nup that allowed her only $1 million in the event of a divorce. Trump made the deadline.

Marla and her daughter, Tiffany, were relegated to California with child support.

in Aberdeenshire, in Scotland, with his nature destroying golf course.

It's called '"You've been Trumped" and it was released in 2012.

Edited because I do know the difference between "of" and "off".

About 25 minutes it gets to how he deals with governments and unions. Pay strict attention.

Kick, recc.
