Default Trump Doesn't Pay His Bills. Seemingly Thinks Local Gov'ts and Taxpayers Will

I've always wished there was a pain-point or some kind of a tax on being stupid...
seemingly its actually starting to come true in a roundabout way; President Trump and his campaign are doing the most Trumpian thing that he's ever done in his life. they are getting involved with outside contractors and then simply not paying their bills and bankrupting most of the things he touches. and now its local gov'ts and local taxpayers left to pickup the pieces after his circus moves onto the next town...
therefore there is essentially a tax on his supporters (because he almost exclusively holds events where he has a majority of supporters) for their stupidity of still being supporters. unfortunately for other people in those same areas that don't support him, they are getting hit with the tax too but outside of that there is a certain karmic justice around the idea that if your local gov't is dumb enough to host a President Trump rally and not get paid up front, they literally feeling financial pain because he's a deadbeat.

Trump still owes D.C. $7.3M for his inauguration and his nonsense political July 4th celebration pushed the city fund into the red:
https://wtop.com/dc/2019/07/trumps-s...-to-president/
His campaign isn't paying cities that bill him for the extra costs associated with his rallies even though many cities are simply eating the costs/cannot bill him by law:
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaig...rally-security

his Bankrupt Trump reputation is getting so bad that Orlando insisted on getting paid up front before his reelection announcement rally (and that's even with Orlando and FL residents eating the $100k+ policing costs):

I think you'd be hard pressed to find a single Trump supporter who cares about this. Which in itself is quite sad.

but they'll bitch about the taxes they're paying that are being used to fund his campaign rallies... its a fun, ignorant circle jerk of conservative victimhood.

sadly, it will likely take them being ripped off by Trump as subcontractors for many of those remaining to actually wake up to the fact that he's a conman and they are his marks.

I can at least appreciate the attempt at humor as a deflection from the reality.

Being a free loading tax thief is only ok when you're rich.

Said literally no one ever.

Talk about projection. You support Trump and Roy Moore.

I looked into the not paying contractors a few years ago when I first heard about it - mostly because I couldn't believe it could be true - and he would still have so many people that would support him. So many blue color workers - that weren't getting paid for their work.

I found it to be factual - and explained how he could get away with it in an article by a lawyer.

It actually isn't illegal - just highly unethical.

So - You quote and then bill Trump for a job for 100K$. After the work is complete, he says he isn't going to pay it. So, you say you'll sue - and him / his lawyers then say they will settle. In the US, you can only sue for what is owed - not what the attorney fees will cost you. We'll say the lawyer is charging $25K... So, don't take it to court, and they will pay you $75K instead of the 100K that you are owed - which could have helped you pay any rents and payroll you might owe, give your employees a raise, or take home as profit/reinvest... Instead you're "breaking even" on the job, particularly if you had originally bid it competitively to get awarded the job.
