Mark Cuban: I saw Trump relative rolling her eyes during debate

Mark Cuban — who famously had a front-row seat at this week’s presidential debate — claims that he caught one of Donald Trump’s female family members rolling her eyes after one of Trump’s remarks during the face-off.

At the Advertising Week New York conference, Cuban — who declined to identify which Trump it was because he didn’t “want to bust them” — said, “There was a point where he said something, and this family member just rolled their eyes, and she saw that I had seen it.”

He added that while Hillary Clinton and her family lingered after the discussion to greet supporters, as soon as it was over it was “exit stage left immediately” for the Trumps.

In February 1999, Seven Arrows sent an invoice to Trump Hotels, seeking reimbursement for the $68,000. The invoice makes clear that the people involved knew the trip was illegal—even though the effort was over, it discusses how Trump Hotels needed a government license before the travel to Cuba took place. It also describes a way to make the business trip appear to be part of a humanitarian effort by linking it after-the-fact to a Cuban charity. Some charitable efforts in Cuba were legal, so long as no American person or entity spent the money. No business enterprise solely to develop opportunities was legal—and spending even a dollar in Cuba was a crime. In the end, Trump Hotels did not seek a license, did not obtain an after-the-fact sponsorship from a charity but simply stuffed the records of the crime into a filing cabinet, apparently hopeful they would never be seen publicly. But Donald Trump, according to former company executives, knew about the Cuban trip (“Do you honestly think any of Trump’s top guys would spend $68,000 without clearing it with him?” one executive replied sarcastically when Newsweek asked if Trump knew.)

Soon after the invoice was paid, Donald Trump began planning a run for the presidential nomination of the Reform Party. He decided to first focus his run on Florida, a state with one of the largest number of electoral votes—by targeting Cuban-Americans. At the time, Trump could not proclaim that his company had just paid for an illegal trip to Cuba—at least not without guaranteeing both a loss in Florida and the launch of a criminal investigation. So instead, Trump decided to trick Cuban-Americans.

The first step? Writing an op-ed for the Miami Herald in which he proclaimed his steadfast support for the embargo he had just broken. The opinion piece was published June 25, 1999, just a couple of weeks before it was publicly revealed Trump was readying a presidential run. In his article, Trump wrote:

“Of course, (Castro) would love Donald Trump to come to Havana and build casino hotels. Why? Not to raise the standard of living for the people of Cuba. Quite the contrary. Almost every dollar would go to prop up his police-state. Why? Because foreign investors cannot legally do business with private Cuban citizens. They can go into business only with the Castro government. It is highly illegal in Cuba for anyone except for the regime to employ a Cuban citizen.”

Now, compare those words with the invoice published in Newsweek last week. Look at the date and the purpose given for why the $68,000 in expenses were incurred:

Reasonable people might conclude that the editors at the Miami Herald would be infuriated that the pages of their newspaper had been used to deceive their readers. Yes, you would think that. But apparently not.

I read Kurt Eichenwald's tweets! He's fighting the media, and Trump supporters everyday!

His Newsweek piece gets hacked. Please read him, follow him here: https://twitter.com/kurteichenwald I think this brave investigator needs our support.

Now he is angry at Miami Herald for reprinting Trump's editorial from 1999 when he ran for President (reform Party) the 1st time acting like he was for the Cuban embargo. He is calling them out because they reprinted without mentioning his Newsweek findings that in 1998 Trump had broken the embargo by spending money in Cuba.

Hey @MiamiHerald! U reprinted Trump 6/99 op ed supporting Cuban embargo today. Perhaps u should print this 2/99 invoice showing he broke it?
