” Police in Australia found that Trump’s dealings in Atlantic City “would be a dubious model, for Sydney” in their evaluation of a bid to build a casino in New South Wales in 1987. Australian authorities once rejected Donald Trump’s bid, for a hotel casino in Queensland, stating such a project would be “dangerous” on account of “Trump Mafia connections,” it has emerged. Cabinet minutes, and a secret police report dated 1987 and published Wednesday as part of an investigation by the News Corporation-owned newspaper The Australian cast a dark shadow over with Trump’s business reputation.

His lawyer, and mentor Roy Cohn’s other clients included notorious mobsters such as the bosses of the Genovese and Gambino crime families, respectively Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno and Paul “Big Paul” Castellano, who controlled the concrete company S&A that Trump used to build his Manhattan Trump Plaza condos, likely paying an inflated price, as a Politico investigation into Trump’s alleged mob ties reported in 2016….Read The Full Article Here
