The Drumpfs and the City

There have been allegations that Friedrich Trump's hotels and restaurants also served as brothels, although it is difficult to confirm these claims: they were only located in the brothel areas, people claimed they looked like brothels and they were reported as brothels. These allegations were first reported by Gwenda Blair in her 2001 book, "The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a Presidential Candidate." However, these claims have not been substantiated by the owners.

Gwenda Blair's book "The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a Presidential Candidate" alleges that the Trump family was involved in the operation of brothels in New York City in the early 20th century. Blair's book cites various sources, including court records and interviews with former employees, to support her claims. She alleges that Fred Trump, the father of Donald Trump, owned several properties in the Queens and Brooklyn neighborhoods that were used for prostitution.

According to Blair, the brothels were operated by a woman named Sally Miller, who was a friend of Fred Trump. Miller allegedly ran the brothels with the help of her son, who was a close associate of Donald Trump. Blair also claims that the Trump family had ties to organized crime figures in New York City, who helped them acquire and maintain their real estate holdings. She suggests that these connections may have played a role in the family's involvement in the brothel business.

Blair's book suggests that Fred Trump may have helped Miller financially and provided her with the properties to operate her brothels. Miller's son was also allegedly involved in the brothel business and had close ties to Donald Trump. While the exact nature of Miller and Fred Trump's relationship is not fully clear, Blair's book indicates that they were close associates. Miller was a prominent figure in New York City's underground sex industry, and it's possible that Fred Trump had connections to her through his own real estate dealings.

The Trump family has vehemently denied any involvement in the sex trade. However, Blair's book remains a significant piece of reporting on the history of the Trump family and their business dealings in New York City.

A brief history of Prostitution in New York City. Prostitution's past in New York City is intricate and variegated, shifting significantly since World War I. Throughout this span, it's been driven subterranean due to amplified law enforcement efforts and societal shame. Here's a concise outline of the history
of prostitution in New York City from World War I to the present day, alongside some examples:

The Prohibition Era (1920-1933): During this period, alcohol sale and consumption were forbidden in the US. This led to the emergence of speakeasies, covert clubs where alcohol was served and consumed. Many of these speakeasies doubled as brothels, and prostitution prospered during this era. Notable instances
include the Cotton Club in Harlem, which was famed for its music and dance, but also for its prostitution.

The Great Depression (1930s): The Great Depression left New York City grappling, with many women turning to prostitution as a means of subsistence. During this phase, law enforcement intervened, and many women were apprehended and incarcerated. However, prostitution endured, with several brothels and massage parlors remaining open.

Post-WorldWar II (1945-1960s): Following World War II, the economy of New York City flourished, leading to a resurgence in prostitution. Many ex-soldiers returned home and sought out prostitutes' services. Additionally, the city's populace was burgeoning, and many women resorted to prostitution to support themselves. During this era, prostitution was concentrated in specific neighborhoods, such as Times Square, where sex workers could be seen soliciting on the streets.

The War on Drugs (1970s-1980s): In the 1970s and 1980s, the US government initiated a "war on drugs," and New York City was at the epicenter of this endeavor. Many drug users turned to prostitution to finance their habits, and numerous drug dealers also got involved in the sex trade. Law enforcement intervened, and several women were captured and incarcerated. Nonetheless, prostitution survived, with many massage parlors and brothels continuing operations.

The Internet Age (1990s-2000s): With the ascent of the internet, prostitution in New York City migrated to the digital realm. Websites such as Craigslist and Backpage became prominent platforms for sex workers to market their services. Law enforcement responded by initiating sting operations to nab prostitutes and
their clients. In 2018, the government shut down Backpage, but many other websites still enable prostitution.

Today: Prostitution is still illegal in New York City, but it persists, particularly in immigrant communities. Sex trafficking is also a significant problem, with many women trafficked to the city from other countries and coerced into prostitution. Law enforcement continues to crack down on prostitution, but many
sex workers and their advocates contend that this approach only pushes the trade further underground and endangers sex workers.

In conclusion, the history of prostitution in New York City is intricate and multifaceted. While the trade has undergone significant changes since World War I, it remains a divisive and contentious issue in the city to this day.

A brief history of the Trump family in New York City.

For those who are not familiar with this name, Donald Trump is a known businessman and former president ofthe United States, born into a wealthy family with a history of entrepreneurship and real estate development. However, the history of the Trump family has been a subject of controversy, including allegations of involvement in sex trafficking and brothels , but also fraud and organised crime. Needless to say that a person like him had to be welcomed by Vladimir Putin, a criminal dictator of Russia.

Friedrich Trump was a German-American businessman who lived and worked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is best known as the grandfather of former U.S. President Donald Trump. Friedrich Trump started his business career as a barber in his native Germany, but he immigrated to the United States in 1885 at the age of 16 to seek his fortune.

FriedrichTrump's first business venture in the United States was a restaurant and a hotel in New York City's red-light district. The venture, called the "Stuttgart," was located on the Bowery, a street notorious for its
saloons, brothels, and gambling dens. The Stuttgart catered to the neighborhood's rough-and-tumble clientele, serving German food and beer.

The Stuttgart Hotel, located in the Bowery neighborhood of New York City, was known to be one of the most notorious hotels in the city's red-light district in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The hotel was one of many in the area that provided cheap lodging to sex workers and their clients.

There are several historical records and firsthand accounts that suggest that the Stuttgart Hotel on the Bowery in New York City was used to provide cheap lodging to sex workers and their clients in the early 20th century.

One such record is the 1910 U.S. Census, which lists the occupants of the Stuttgart Hotel as "lodgers." Many of the individuals listed are women who are identified as "prostitutes" or "keepers of disorderly houses," indicating that the hotel was used by sex workers and their managers.

Firsthand accounts from the time also support the notion that the Stuttgart Hotel and other hotels in the Bowery were used for prostitution. In her book "The Bowery: A History of Grit, Graft and Grandeur," author Eric Ferrara describes the Bowery's reputation as a red-light district and notes that many of the hotels in the area were known to provide lodging to sex workers and their clients. Ferrara specifically mentions the Stuttgart Hotel as one such establishment.

Additionally, the New York Times published several articles in the early 20th century that describe the Bowery as a notorious red-light district and discuss the prevalence of prostitution in the area. One article from 1907 specifically mentions the Stuttgart Hotel as a place where "the Bowery harlotry congregates."

The reputation of the Stuttgart Hotel was particularly infamous due to the presence of a large number of prostitutes and their clients who frequented the establishment. The hotel's reputation was further solidified by the numerous arrests of its occupants for prostitution and other sex-related crimes.

The Stuttgart Hotel was also known to be a place where drug use was rampant. Many of the hotel's residents were drug users, and the hotel was a popular place for drug dealers to do business. This further added to the hotel's seedy reputation.

Despite itsreputation, the Stuttgart Hotel was a popular destination for many of the city's poor and working-class residents who were in need of cheap lodging. The hotel was also known for its colorful and eccentric residents, who often provided entertainment and amusement for passersby.

Today, the Bowery neighborhood has undergone significant gentrification, and the Stuttgart
Hotel no longer exists which I guess was one of the important reasons for 62,984,828 to vote for Donald Trump in 2016. We note however that the hotel's reputation as a notorious establishment in New York City's red-light district remains a part of the city's history.

After the success of the Stuttgart, Friedrich Trump opened a series of restaurants and hotels in the Pacific Northwest. His first venture was the Dairy Restaurant in Seattle, which he opened in 1891. The Dairy Restaurant was a popular gathering place for local Germans and served simple fare like sandwiches and soup.

The Dairy Restaurant was actually a kosher restaurant that operated in Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood from the 1920s until the 1970s. While it's possible that the restaurant has been reported to have had connection to illicit activities such as gambling or bootlegging during Prohibition, there is no credible evidence to suggest that it was ever used as a brothel.

The idea that The Dairy Restaurant was a brothel appears to be a rumor or urban legend that has circulated over the years. However, there is no historical documentation or firsthand accounts that would call it a brothel. This being said, as Gwenda Blair wrote in Politico, far from the bright lights of Manhattan, Friedrich, a German immigrant, opened a restaurant called the Dairy Restaurant with “private rooms” for prostitution. Her research shows Grandfather Trump later opened a hotel and prostitution parlor near the mining town of Monte Cristo, Wash., cashing out before investments in the area went bust.

Then, he put his chips on the Yukon gold rush, starting the New Arctic Restaurant and Hotel. As Up Here magazine reports, the elder Trump built a rare two-story building near the Yukon trail, and “apparently, it wasn’t just Trump’s assortment of poultry dishes that brought in the crowds.” I personally think that it was so much of a brothel, not because of a suden prick of conciousness of the owner, but more of an effect that much later Modigliani and Miller shared a Nobel Prize "for their pioneering work in the theory of financial economics" , namely for the theory of reduction of the risks through the distribution of assets. So the owner was merely mitigating the risks, though remaining a consious criminal. Oh, wait, just a person who was known as a criminal, reported as a criminal and seen acting as a criminal, but of course not a criminal.

By the same token, there are though no historical records and firsthand accounts that suggest that The Dairy Restaurant in Seattle's Pioneer Square was used for gambling during the Prohibition era. During Prohibition, many restaurants and other establishments served as speakeasies and gambling dens, and the Dairy Restaurant was probably no exception. According to a Seattle Times article from 1975, The Dairy Restaurant was "one of the most famous gambling spots in the city" during Prohibition, and it was known for its "back room crap games."

In addition to newspaper articles from the time, there are also firsthand accounts of The Dairy Restaurant's gambling activities. For example, historian and author J. Kingston Pierce wrote in a blog post that his father, who grew up in Seattle during Prohibition, had visited The Dairy Restaurant as a young man and had witnessed the gambling firsthand. This was published in 2003, and ntherefore was it at all possible back in the time to foresee that an offspring of that particular person would become the US President? I think that back in this time only Vladimir Putin could see this coming.

In 1893, Friedrich Trump moved to Monte Cristo, a mining town in Washington State. There, he opened the already mentioned New Arctic Restaurant and Hotel, which quickly became one of the most popular spots in town. The New Arctic was known for its luxurious accommodations and fine cuisine, including oysters, steak, and champagne.

FriedrichTrump's success continued with the opening of the Northern Hotel in Bennett, British Columbia, which catered to gold miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. He later opened the Arctic Hotel in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, which was also popular with miners.

However, Friedrich Trump's business career was not without a controversy. In 1918, during World War I, he was accused of violating the Alien Enemy Act. He was briefly interned in a detention camp in Texas before being released and returning to New York. The sutuation there was not an easy one- by 1901 Frederick had made a small fortune and decided to return to his hometown of Kallstadt in south-west Germany. Frederick married his childhood sweetheart, Elisabeth, and planned to settle down. However the Bavarian authorities have claimed that he left Germany illegaly, evaded taxes and military service. Despite Federick pleaded that he and Elisabeth were “loyal Germans and stand behind the high Kaiser and the mighty German Reich” the Bavarian authorities insisted on their claims. Frederick rushed back to New York.

The Alien Enemy Act was a federal law passed in 1798, which gave the president the power to imprison or deport any foreign nationals who were considered a threat to the country during a time of war or conflict. The act was most notably used during World War II to detain and intern thousands of Japanese-Americans and German-Americans.

By an interesting coincidence later during the pre- World War II time there were reports that Fred Trump, the son of Frederick Trump may have profited from his ties to the German-American Bund, a pro-Nazi organization active in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. According to a 2016 article in The New York Times, Fred Trump was once arrested at a pro-Nazi rally in New York City in 1927.

In 1927, Fred Trump, the father of former U.S. President Donald Trump, was arrested at a pro-Nazi rally in New York City. At the time, Fred Trump was just 21 years old and working in his father's real estate business.

The rally in question was held at a popular German-American meeting hall in Queens, New York, and was organized by the German-American Bund, a pro-Nazi organization that was active in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. The group was known for promoting anti-Semitic and fascist views, and had ties to the Nazi party in Germany.

According to newspaper accounts from the time, Fred Trump was one of several men who were arrested at the rally for refusing to disperse when ordered to do so by the police. The charges against him were eventually dropped.

Additionally, in a 2018 book titled "House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia," author Craig Unger alleges that Fred Trump was involved in money laundering and other illegal activities with members of the Russian mafia. Unger claims that the Russian mafia had ties to the Russian government and that Fred Trump's business dealings with them could have potentially violated the Alien Enemy Act. This issue though, deserves a special review, which I am planning to attend to, in due course.

Therefore, the Trumps have kept good connections to the country of their origin and seemed to have turned up trumps in the entertainments, gambling and lodging. The fact that some of these activities were illegal seemed to have escaped their attention though,

But back to New York City red-light district. The Bowery, a street in Lower Manhattan, was known as New YorkCity's red-light district in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The area was infamous for its numerous brothels, saloons, and gambling dens, which attracted a diverse clientele of working-class men, sailors, and soldiers.

The Bowery's reputation as a red-light district began to take shape in the mid-1800s, as working-class men flooded into New York City seeking employment in the booming manufacturing and shipping industries. The Bowery's proximity to the city's seaport made it a popular destination for sailors and immigrants, many of whom were looking for cheap lodging, food, and entertainment.

By the late 19th century, the Bowery had become a thriving center of vice and debauchery, with dozens of saloons, dance halls, and brothels lining the street. The area was notorious for its "cribs," small rooms in tenement buildings where prostitutes plied their trade. It was estimated that there were over 1,000 prostitutes working on the Bowery at the turn of the 20th century.

Despite the Bowery's reputation as a center of vice, it remained a popular destination for working-class men throughout the early 20th century. However, as New York City began to crack down on vice and crime in the 1920s and 1930s, the Bowery's red-light district began to decline. Today, the Bowery is a bustling commercial and residential street, but its history as a notorious red-light district remains an important part of New York City's past.

As we discussed it above, the story of the Trump family began with Donald's grandfather,Friedrich Trumpf or Drumpf according to some sources, later anglicized to Frederick Trump. Friedrich was born in 1869 in the village of Kallstadt, Germany. He immigrated to the United States in 1885 at the age of 16 and started working as a barber in New York City. He later moved to Seattle, where he opened a restaurant and hotel, which catered to the miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Friedrich later returned to New York City and became involved in real estate development.

Donald Trump's father, Fred Trump, was born in 1905 in New York City. Fred was also involved in the family business in Queens and Brooklyn. He was known for his tough management style and was involved in several legal battles over discrimination in his housing projects. On a personal level I am totally surprised by the level of toughness he had to grow to be able to deal with the challenging circumstances he has been creating around him, however neither I cannot vouch for the majority of what he was doing.

Housing Projects. In the 1950s and 1960s, Fred Trump's company, the Trump Management Corporation, was accused of discriminating against African American and Hispanic tenants in several of its properties in New York City. Specifically, the company was accused of refusing to rent apartments to people of color or steering them away from certain properties.

In 1973, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a lawsuit against the Trump Management Corporation for violating the Fair Housing Act, a federal law that prohibits discrimination in housing. The lawsuit alleged that the company had engaged in a "pattern and practice" of discrimination against people of color.

During the trial, Fred Trump and his lawyers denied the allegations and argued that the company had not discriminated against anyone. However, evidence presented in court suggested otherwise, including testimony from former Trump employees who claimed that they were instructed to mark applications from people of color with a "C" for "colored."

In 1975, the DOJ and the Trump Management Corporation reached a settlement in which the company agreed to desegregate its properties and provide equal housing opportunities to all tenants. The settlement also required the company to take steps to eliminate discriminatory practices and to hire a consultant to monitor its compliance with the Fair Housing Act.

Despite the settlement, the Trump Management Corporation was accused of continuing to discriminate against people of color in its properties throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1983, the New York State Division of Human Rights filed a complaint against the company, alleging that it had engaged in a "persistent pattern" of discrimination against African American and Hispanic tenants.

Shore Haven Hotel. There have been several reports and allegations of prostitution and sex trafficking at the Shore Haven Hotel in Queens during the time when it was owned by Fred Trump, the father of Donald Trump. The hotel was located in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens and operated as a low-income housing facility during the 1950s and 1960s.

In 1963, a19-year-old woman named Lucinda Franks, a future Pulitzer Prize winner, wrote an article for the New York Times about her experience living in the Shore Haven Hotel. She described the hotel as a "run-down, decrepit, and rat-infested" building, where residents were subjected to poor living conditions and harassment from the building's owner and managers. Franks also reported seeing young women being solicited by men in the hotel's lobby and stairwells.

In 1979, a lawsuit was filed against Fred Trump and his company, claiming that the Shore Haven Hotel was a hub for prostitution and sex trafficking. The lawsuit alleged that young women were recruited from the South and forced into prostitution at the hotel. It also accused Trump of making a profit from the prostitution ring by taking a percentage of the women's earnings (This is called pimping under the laws of New York).

Although the lawsuit was eventually dismissed, the allegations of prostitution and sex trafficking at the Shore Haven Hotel have persisted over the years. In 2016, the documentary filmmaker Michael Moore released a movie called "TrumpLand," in which he interviewed several residents of the hotel who claimed to have witnessed or experienced prostitution and sex trafficking there.

Later, the Shore Haven Hotel, located in Queens, New York, was a notorious site for prostitution and sex trafficking in the mid-20th century. The hotel was at some point of time owned by Anthony "Fat Tony"
Salerno,who was a member of the Genovese crime family.

According to a report by the New York Times in 1983, the Shore Haven Hotel was a center for prostitution and sex trafficking, with many of the women being forced into the industry against their will. The hotel had a reputation for being a place where men could come to find young girls for sex.

In 1977, an investigation by the New York City Vice Squad resulted in the arrest of 21 men on charges of prostitution and other related offenses at the Shore Haven Hotel. The men included both customers and employees of the hotel. However, despite the arrests, the prostitution and sex trafficking continued at the hotel.

In the1980s, the Shore Haven Hotel was the site of a major sex trafficking ring run by Salerno and his associates. The ring was involved in trafficking young girls from Thailand and forcing them to work as prostitutes at the hotel.

In 1984, the Shore Haven Hotel was shut down by the city after it was found to be in violation of multiple health and safety codes. The building was eventually demolished in 2007 and replaced with a residential development.

The Shore Haven Hotel scandal is a reminder of the dark history of sex trafficking and exploitation in New York City, particularly in the mid-20th century, and the ways in which organized crime played a role in perpetuating this industry.

Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno was a notorious mobster wh owas the boss of the Genovese crime family in New York City. In addition to his involvement in various illegal activities such as gambling, loan-sharking, and extortion, Salerno was also involved in the concrete business.

Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno (August 15, 1911 – July 27, 1992) was an American mobster who served as underboss and front boss of the Genovese crime family in New York City from 1981 until his 100 years conviction in 1986.

The Genovese crime family, one of the five organized crime families in New York City, rose to power in the mid-20th century under the leadership of Vito Genovese, who took over after the death of his predecessor, Lucky Luciano. Genovese expanded the family's influence through a combination of violence, intimidation, and corruption, and was known for his strategic alliances with other criminal organizations, including the Gambino family.

Paul Castellano was a prominent member of the Gambino crime family and served as its boss from 1976 until his assassination in 1985. Roy Cohn, on the other hand, was a prominent New York City lawyer and political fixer who was known for his association with a wide range of controversial figures, including mobsters, politicians, and celebrities.

Constantino Paul Castellano (Italian: [kastelˈlaːno]; June 26, 1915 – December 16, 1985), was an American crime boss who succeeded Carlo Gambino as head of the Gambino crime family. Castellano was killed in an unsanctioned hit on December 16, 1985.

In the 1970s, Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno emerged as the head of the Genovese family, taking over after the imprisonment of the previous boss, Frank "Funzi" Tieri. Salerno was known for his involvement in labor racketeering, and had close ties to the Teamsters union, which he used to control various industries and businesses in New York City.

Under Salerno's leadership, the Genovese family also became involved in a range of other criminal activities, including illegal gambling, loan sharking, and drug trafficking. They were known for their ruthless tactics and willingness to use violence to maintain their power and control over their criminal enterprises.

There have been several reports and allegations over the years suggesting that Frank "Funzi" Tieri and Fred Trump had some level of business association. One of the most detailed accounts of the alleged business relationship between Tieri and Trump comes from the book "Trump Revealed" by Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher. The authors write that Tieri was known to have connections to the construction industry in New York City, and he may have had some involvement in the construction of several Trump Organization properties in the 1980s.

According to the book, Tieri was rumored to have helped the Trump Organization secure labor peace and avoid union problems on several construction projects. The authors also write that Tieri was said to have helped the Trump Organization secure concrete for the construction of Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Another source of information on the alleged Tieri-Trump business relationship comes from a 1988 book called "Trump: The Deals and the Downfall" by Wayne Barrett. In the book, Barrett writes that Tieri was a known associate of Roy Cohn, a notorious New York City lawyer who was a mentor to Donald Trump in his early career.

Barrett writes that Tieri and Cohn were said to have helped the Trump Organization secure concrete for the construction of Trump Tower, and that Tieri's influence helped the Trump Organization avoid union problems and keep construction costs low. Funnily enough, Cohn has as well represented Castellano, but the exact nature of their relationship is not entirely clear. One theory is that Cohn may have represented Castellano or other members of the Gambino crime family in legal matters, or provided them with other types of legal advice or assistance.

According to a 1986 article in The New York Times, Cohn was known to have represented several members of the Gambino crime family, including Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno, who was a high-ranking member of the family at the time.

There are some reports that suggest that Castellano may have had some involvement in the construction industry in New York City, and may have had some level of influence over labor unions and construction projects. It's possible that Cohn may have been able to provide Castellano or other members of the Gambino crime family with legal assistance related to their construction activities. Therefore Trump's interests were in good hands.

Representation of Donald Trump

In 1971 Donald Trump first undertook large construction projects in Manhattan. In 1973, the Justice Department accused Trump of violating the Fair Housing Act in 39 of his properties.The government alleged that Trump's corporation quoted different rental terms and conditions and made false "no vacancy" statements to African Americans for apartments it managed in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.

Representing Trump, Cohn filed a countersuit against the government for $100 million, asserting that the charges were "irresponsible and baseless."The countersuit was unsuccessfulTrump settled the charges out of court in 1975, saying he was satisfied that the agreement did not "compel the Trump organization to accept persons on welfare as tenants unless as qualified as any other tenant."The corporation was required to send a bi-weekly list of vacancies to the New York Urban League, a civil rights group, and give the league priority for certain locations.In 1978, the Trump Organization was again in court for violating terms of the 1975 settlement; Cohn called the new charges "nothing more than a rehash of complaints by a couple of planted malcontents." Trump denied the charges.

Cohn was allegedly involved in the construction of Trump Tower. Trump Tower was to be built with concrete, however, at the time there was a city-wide Teamster strike and most unions in Manhattan were controlled by or had ties to organized crime. Cohn had represented mobsters in the past like Carmine Galante and Anthony Salerno. Salerno and Paul Castellano at the time controlled the concrete unions in Manhattan and, when Donald Trump needed concrete, he received it from union leader John Cody who was linked to mob boss Castellano.

Rupert Murdoch was a client, and Cohn repeatedly pressured President Ronald Reagan to further Murdoch's interests. He is credited with introducing Trump and Murdoch, in the mid-1970s, marking the beginning of what was to be a long, pivotal association between the two.

Despite numerous attempts by law enforcement to dismantle the organization, the Genovese family remained a powerful force in New York City's criminal underworld for decades, with Salerno remaining at the helm until his arrest and conviction on racketeering charges in 1986. However, the family has continued to operate in various forms, and remains active in organized crime today.

One of the major projects that Salerno's company, S & A Concrete, was involved in was the construction of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. According to a 1986 report by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, S & A Concrete was awarded the contract for the foundation work for Trump Plaza because it submitted the lowest bid.

However, the report also revealed that Salerno had been convicted of federal racketeering charges and was serving a 100-year prison sentence at the time, making him an ineligible candidate for a casino license in New Jersey. In addition, the report found that S & A Concrete had overcharged the Trump Plaza project by $2.2 million for the foundation work, and that the company had been involved in bid-rigging schemes with other concrete companies.

Despite these findings, Trump continued to defend his business relationship with Salerno and S & A Concrete. In a 1990 interview with Playboy, Trump said, "I know [Salerno] and like him. ... [The concrete business] is a business that I have to deal with. It's something that's always been there." However, Trump also claimed that he had no knowledge of Salerno's criminal activities and had never been involved in any illegal dealings with him. As we all understand particularly well now, Trump would not lie about it.

Donald Trump's friends and foes]

On a separate metter, by the way, I was thinking to draw a portrait of an aevrage person Donal Trump called a liar and the same who he would admire of, and I have come to the following conclusion, statistically (I use a complex mathematical algorythm for that):

An average person Donald Trump called a liar:Throughout his political career and presidency, Donald Trump has been known to call various individuals liars, ranging from political opponents and journalists to former employees and advisors. There is no specific "average person" who fits this description, as the individuals he has labeled as liars come from different backgrounds, professions, and political affiliations. The common factor among them is that they have disagreed with or criticized Trump in some way, or provided information that contradicts his statements or actions.

Here are some examples:

Throughout his presidency and political career, Donald Trump has called various people liars, often in response to disagreements, criticisms, or unfavorable information. Here are some examples:

  1. James Comey: Trump accused the former FBI director of being a liar after Comey testified before Congress about his interactions with the president and the circumstances surrounding his firing.
  2. Robert Mueller: Trump called the special counsel, who led the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, a liar, and consistently referred to the investigation as a "witch hunt."
  3. Barack Obama: Trump has accused his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, of lying on multiple occasions, including claims related to the Affordable Care Act and the Iran nuclear deal.
  4. Hillary Clinton: Trump consistently labeled his 2016 presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton, as "Crooked Hillary" and accused her of lying about various issues, such as her use of a private email server and the Benghazi attack.
  5. Nancy Pelosi: Trump has called the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, a liar on several occasions, particularly in relation to the impeachment process and disagreements over policy.
  6. Adam Schiff: Trump accused the Democratic congressman and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, of lying, particularly during the impeachment inquiry.
  7. Chuck Schumer: Trump has called the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, a liar in response to disagreements over policy and political issues.
  8. Joe Biden: Trump accused his 2020 presidential opponent, Joe Biden, of lying on multiple occasions during the campaign, including claims related to Biden's positions on fracking and other policy issues.
  9. Various journalists and news organizations: Trump has frequently accused journalists and news organizations of lying, particularly when they report unfavorable information about him or his administration. He has often referred to such reporting as "fake news."

These are just a few examples of people Donald Trump has called liars during his political career. It is important to note that his relationships with these individuals and the extent of his accusations could change over time.

An average person Donald Trump would consistently like: Donald Trump has expressed admiration and support for various people throughout his life, including politicians, business leaders, and celebrities. The individuals he tends to like often share his views or support his policies, praise him publicly, or have a track record of success in their respective fields. They can be loyal allies, share a similar worldview, or possess characteristics that Trump finds appealing, such as charisma, confidence, or a strong work ethic.Donald Trump has praised numerous people throughout his political career and presidency, often for their loyalty, political positions, or personal qualities.

Here are some examples:

  1. Vladimir Putin: Trump has repeatedly expressed admiration for the Russian president, praising his leadership and strength. However, Trump's praise for Putin has been controversial, given the tense relationship between the United States and Russia.
  2. Kim Jong Un: Trump has praised North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, for his strength and intelligence. He has also mentioned the "good chemistry" between them, despite North Korea's authoritarian regime and human rights abuses.
  3. Mike Pence: As his Vice President, Mike Pence received consistent praise from Trump for his loyalty and support of the administration's policies.
  4. Mitch McConnell: The Senate Majority Leader during Trump's presidency, Mitch McConnell, was often praised by Trump for his leadership and support of the administration's agenda.
  5. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner: Trump has consistently praised his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, for their work as advisors within his administration.
  6. Rudy Giuliani: Trump has often praised his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who has supported and defended him in various legal and political matters.
  7. Ted Cruz: Despite their rivalry during the 2016 Republican primaries, Trump eventually praised Senator Ted Cruz for his support of the administration and their shared political goals.
  8. Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson: Trump has praised Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson for their supportive coverage of his administration and policies.
  9. Kanye West: Trump has expressed admiration for the rapper Kanye West, who has made statements in support of Trump and visited the White House.

These are just a few examples of people Donald Trump has praised over the years. It is important to note that his relationships with these individuals could change over time, as well as the extent of his praise.

Therefore, as a conclusion, there are much bigger chances for Donal Trump to call you a liar if you hold a Nobel or a Pullitzer prize than if you are under a police investigation and it hardly be considered as a compliment to the US election system.

Donald Trump and Epstein.

There have been allegations and reports of the Trumps involvement in the sex trade. In 2016, a lawsuit was filed against Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted sex offender, by a woman who claimed she was sexually assaulted by both men when she was 13 years old. Trump denied the allegations, and the lawsuit was eventually dropped.

Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein were known to have crossed paths in social and business circles in the past. While they were not close friends, they shared some common interests and connections. Their relationship can be broadly categorized into three aspects:

  1. Social connections: Both Trump and Epstein were part of the same high-society circles in New York and Florida during the 1980s and 1990s. They attended some of the same events and were photographed together on occasion.
  2. Business dealings: Trump and Epstein's business relationship was primarily related to real estate. In 2004, Epstein participated in an auction for a Palm Beach estate called Maison de l'Amitie. He was outbid by Trump, who purchased the property for $41 million. Trump later sold the estate to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev in 2008 for $95 million. We will however be back to his relationship with the Russia in our further articles.
  3. Mar-a-Lago: Epstein was a member of Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, before being banned in the early 2000s. The exact reason for the ban is unclear, but it has been reported that it was due to Epstein's inappropriate behavior with young women at the club.

As for Epstein's curriculum vitae, he was born on January 20, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York. He started his career as a teacher at the Dalton School in Manhattan before transitioning to finance. Some key points of his professional life include:

  1. Bear Stearns: Epstein joined the investment bank Bear Stearns in the mid-1970s. He quickly climbed the ranks and eventually became a limited partner. He left the firm in 1981.
  2. J. Epstein & Co.: After leaving Bear Stearns, Epstein founded his own financial firm, J. Epstein & Co., in 1982. The company managed assets for high-net-worth clients, including billionaire retail magnate Leslie Wexner.
  3. Financial success: Epstein's wealth was often a source of speculation, as the true extent of his assets was unclear. He owned several luxurious properties, including a private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a mansion in Manhattan, and the aforementioned Palm Beach estate.
  4. Philanthropy: Epstein was a noted philanthropist, contributing to various scientific and educational causes. He founded the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, which supported research in areas like artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and genetics.
  5. Legal troubles and conviction: In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor and served 13 months in a Palm Beach County jail. This conviction led to increased scrutiny of his activities and associations with other high-profile individuals.

I find it extremely important to evaluate the fields of the philantropic interests by Jeffrey Epstein because to me it very apparent with a line of activities he has pursued would probably be far away from the of a life of a philanthropist who donated millions of dollars to various scientific and educational causes throughout his life. His primary philanthropic vehicle was the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, which was established in 2000. The foundation supported research in fields such as artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and genetics, among others. Here are some notable details about the foundation and Epstein's philanthropic activities:

  1. The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation: The foundation was a private, nonprofit organization, which made it difficult to track its financials and donation recipients. The foundation claimed to have donated over $200 million to various institutions and researchers.
  2. Harvard University: Epstein donated $6.5 million to Harvard University in 2003, which was used to establish the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. This interdisciplinary research program aimed to study the mathematical principles governing evolutionary biology, including genetics, infectious diseases, and cancer.
  3. The Edge Foundation: Epstein was a regular contributor to The Edge Foundation, an organization that promotes interdisciplinary cooperation and intellectual exchange among scientists, artists, and technologists. The foundation hosts an annual event called the "Billionaires' Dinner," which Epstein attended and financially supported.
  4. The Santa Fe Institute: Epstein supported the Santa Fe Institute, an independent research and education center focused on complex systems and interdisciplinary studies. The institute's research spans various fields, including physics, biology, economics, and social sciences.
  5. Individual scientists and researchers: Epstein provided financial support to numerous scientists and researchers, both directly and through his foundation. Some of the beneficiaries include cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, and evolutionary biologist Robert Trivers. Epstein's financial support allowed these researchers to pursue their work without traditional funding constraints.

Looking at the profile of the scientific research he has been financing, I can make an educated guess on why this would be the issue and who could be behind such research, based on the historic practices of some agressive totalitarian regimes who would be stealing technologies from developed countries. A person, who is known to be a part of criminal activies like Jeffrey Epstein, if known to such agressive countries, would be a ideal candidate for the industrial espionnage and philantropy opens the path for an easy access to the best minds of the planet.

Industrial espionage was a common practice during the Cold War, as both the United States and the Soviet Union sought to gain an edge over one another in military and technological capabilities. The Soviet Union was particularly active in conducting espionage activities to acquire advanced technologies from the United States. Here are some notable historical examples of Soviet industrial espionage:

  1. The Manhattan Project: The Soviet Union conducted extensive espionage efforts to obtain information on the American atomic bomb project, known as the Manhattan Project. Several spies, including Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Klaus Fuchs, Theodore Hall, and David Greenglass, infiltrated the project or had access to classified information. They provided the Soviet Union with crucial details on the design and production of atomic bombs, helping the Soviets develop their own nuclear weapons more quickly.
  2. Jet engine technology: In the late 1940s, the Soviet Union managed to acquire jet engine technology from the United States and the United Kingdom. One notable case involved Rolls-Royce engineer Ronald Lonsdale Houghton, who provided jet engine blueprints to Soviet intelligence agents. This espionage allowed the Soviet Union to rapidly advance their jet aircraft technology and develop planes such as the MiG-15, which played a significant role in the Korean War.
  3. Space technology: The Soviet Union conducted industrial espionage to acquire information on American space technology, including rocket engines and guidance systems. The information obtained through these efforts helped the Soviet Union to develop its own space program, leading to significant achievements like the launch of Sputnik and the first manned spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin.
  4. Computer technology: During the 1970s and 1980s, the Soviet Union targeted American computer technology as part of its industrial espionage efforts. Soviet spies aimed to acquire advanced computer systems, software, and microelectronics to help narrow the technological gap with the United States. One notable example is the Farewell Dossier, a list of Soviet industrial espionage targets and agents obtained by French intelligence and passed on to the United States. The information in the dossier allowed the US to feed the Soviet Union with deliberately flawed technology, causing setbacks in the Soviet military and industrial sectors.
  5. Military technology: Throughout the Cold War, the Soviet Union sought to acquire advanced military technology from the United States, including radar systems, stealth technology, and avionics. The Soviets used various methods, including traditional human espionage, intercepting communications, and reverse engineering captured or purchased equipment, to gain insights into American military capabilities.

These examples demonstrate the extent to which the Soviet Union relied on industrial espionage to keep pace with the United States in various technological fields. The information obtained through these efforts played a significant role in shaping the technological landscape during the Cold War.

The only missing link to explain the Epstein's sudden interest in philantropy which started pretty much at the time of the coming to power of an agressive dictator in Russia, was Epstein's a criminal path that the Russians could use to control the Trump's friend or maybe an asociate, who knows?

In 2019, the Miami Herald published an investigative report on Epstein's alleged sex trafficking operation, which claimed that Trump was a frequent guest at Epstein's parties and social events. The report also alleged that Trump had been involved in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl at one of Epstein's parties, although Trump denied the allegation. The stars might have therefore aligned: the Russians could be in control of both of the gentlemen had they had they compromising material. We will elaborate on this in our upcoming article though.

It is important to note that the allegations regarding DonaldTrump's involvement with Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged sex trafficking operation are still being disputed by Trump and his supporters. However, the Miami Herald's investigative report did provide some details on the claims made against Trump.

The report,which was published in November 2018, focused on Epstein's alleged operation to recruit and exploit underage girls for sex. The report detailed how Epstein had used his wealth and connections to lure vulnerable girls into his orbit, and how he had trafficked them to his properties in Florida, New York, and the Caribbean.

The report also alleged that Trump had been a frequent guest at Epstein's parties and social events, and that he had a close relationship with Epstein. According to the report, Epstein had hosted a "calendar girl" competition at his Mar-a-Lago estate in 1992, which was attended by Trump. The report also claimed
that Trump had flown on Epstein's private plane, which was nicknamed the "Lolita Express," at least once.

Another allegation against Trump in the report was that he had been involved in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl at one of Epstein's parties. The report claimed that the girl had been recruited by Epstein and his associates and had been brought to a party at Epstein's New York City mansion in the 1990s. According to the report, Trump had taken a liking to the girl and had engaged in sexual activity with her. However, the girl has not been publicly identified, and there is no concrete evidence to support the claim.

After thereport was published, Trump denied the allegations and dismissed them as "fake news." He also distanced himself from Epstein, stating that he had not spoken to him in years and that he had always known him to be a "creep."

It should be noted that Epstein was arrested in July 2019 in New York on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors. He died in prison in August 2019, and his death was ruled a suicide. The investigation into Epstein's alleged sex trafficking operation is ongoing, and it remains to be seen if any further evidence will emerge regarding Trump's alleged involvement.

There have also been reports that the Trump family's real estate properties in New York City have been used for prostitution and sex trafficking. In 2016, a building owned by the Trump Organization in Manhattan was raided by the police as part of an investigation into an alleged prostitution ring. While the Trump Organization denied any involvement, the raid raised questions about the potential use of Trump's properties for illegal activities.

In conclusion, while the Trump family has a long history of real estate development and entrepreneurship, there have been allegations of involvement in the sex trade and sex trafficking. These allegations are largely based on reports and lawsuits that have been dropped. However, they have contributed to the controversy surrounding the family's legacy.

On a personal level, here are some of the cases where Donald Trump has been accused of rape:

  1. In 1994, Trump's ex-wife Ivana Trump accused him of raping her during their marriage. She later clarified that the incident was a "violent assault" but did not mean it in a "criminal sense."
  2. In 2016, a woman named Jane Doe filed a lawsuit accusing Trump of raping her when she was 13 years old in the 1990s. The lawsuit was dropped before the election, and the woman later withdrew her accusation.
  3. In 2019, writer E. Jean Carroll accused Trump of raping her in a dressing room at a New York City department store in the mid-1990s. Trump denied the accusation and claimed he had never met Carroll, despite a photo showing them together.

Here are some of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump:

  1. In 1989, a woman named Jill Harth accused Trump of groping her and attempting to rape her during a business meeting. Harth filed a lawsuit against Trump, which was later settled out of court.
  2. In 1992, a woman named Kristin Anderson accused Trump of reaching under her skirt and touching her genitals at a New York City nightclub.
  3. In 1997, a former Miss USA contestant named Temple Taggart accused Trump of kissing her on the lips without her consent.
  4. In 2003, a woman named Mindy McGillivray accused Trump of groping her at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
  5. In 2005, a recording surfaced in which Trump was heard making lewd comments about women to television host Billy Bush. In the recording, Trump boasted about kissing and groping women without their consent.
  6. In 2016, a woman named Summer Zervos accused Trump of sexually assaulting her in 2007. Zervos filed a lawsuit against Trump, which is still ongoing.
  7. In 2016, a former adult film actress named Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) alleged that she had a consensual affair with Trump in 2006 while he was married to his current wife, Melania Trump. Daniels claimed that she was paid $130,000 in hush money just before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about the affair.

It's worth noting that Trump has denied all of these accusations and 62,984,828 Americans believed his words in 2016 and another 65,853,514 Americans in 2020. It is also apparent that some 7 billion of flies cannot be all mistaken.


Epstein’s death.

Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, was found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City on August 10, 2019, the last year of the Donald Trump's presidency. He was being held there while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. His death was officially ruled a suicide by hanging, but it has been the subject of much controversy and speculation.

In the weeksleading up to his death, Epstein was reportedly on suicide watch after he had
been found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck. However, he was
taken off suicide watch a few days later, against the advice of the MCC's
psychologist, and returned to the special housing unit (SHU) where he was being
held. Epstein was supposed to have been checked on by guards every 30 minutes
but reports later emerged that the guards had failed to do so in the hours leading up to his death.

Several events around the time of Epstein's death have been cited as potentially having a connection to it. For example:

1. Epstein's arrest and indictment: Epstein'sarrest on July 6, 2019, and subsequent indictment on sex trafficking charges were major news stories that brought renewed attention to his alleged crimes and the powerful people who were said to have been involved with him.

2. The unsealing of court documents: On July17, 2019, a federal judge ordered the unsealing of hundreds of pages of court documents related to a defamation lawsuit against Epstein that had been filed by one of his accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre.The documents contained allegations of sexual abuse by Epstein and several other high-profile individuals, including Prince Andrew, former Governor Bill Richardson, and attorney Alan Dershowitz.

3. Epstein's finances: Epstein's wealth andfinancial dealings have been the subject of much speculation, with some suggesting that he may have been involved in money laundering or other illegal activities. Following his death, it was reported that Epstein had signed a will just two days before he died, which had been valued at over $577 million.

4. The MCC's staffing and security: The MCC has been criticized for its staffing shortages and security failures, which some have suggested may have contributed to Epstein's death. Two guards who
were supposed to have been checking on Epstein the night he died were later charged with falsifying records and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Despite the official ruling of suicide, there have been numerous conspiracy theories and allegations of foul play surrounding Epstein's death. Some have suggested that he was murdered to prevent him from revealing damaging information about powerful people, while others have suggested that he may have been helped to stage his own death and escape justice. However, there is no evidence to support these theories, and most experts believe that Epstein did in fact take his own life.

There have been reports of a possible connection between Jeffrey Epstein and Anthony "Fat
Tony" Salerno, a notorious New York City mobster who was convicted of racketeering and other charges in 1986. According to a report by The New York Times, Epstein had a business relationship with the Gambino crime family through his association with Douglas Manchester, a real estate developer who was reportedly involved with the Gambino family. Manchester had partnered with Salerno's construction company to build a large condominium complex in New York City, and Epstein was said to have provided financing for the project. Given the potential connection link with Genovese and Gambinos families through Cohn, the lawyer, all looks a bit more than just sex trafficking to me.

The connection between Epstein and Salerno is not clear, and it is not known if the two men had any personal or direct business relationship. However, some reports have suggested that Epstein's wealth and connections to powerful people may have made him an attractive target for organized crime figures who were looking to launder money or engage in other illegal activities. Additionally, Epstein's association with Manchester, who seemed to have had close ties to Salerno and the Gambino family, has raised questions about his own connections to organized crime.

Following Epstein's death in August 2019, two correctional officers who were responsible for guarding him were placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into the circumstances of his death. The investigation found that the officers had failed to conduct the required checks on Epstein and had falsified records to make it appear as though they had.

In November 2019, the two officers were indicted on charges of falsifying records and conspiracy. They
were accused of sleeping on the job and browsing the internet instead of conducting the required checks on Epstein, and of filling out false reports to cover up their neglect. Both officers pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In May 2021, it was reported that the two officers had reached a plea deal with prosecutors. Under the terms of the deal, they would plead guilty to charges of falsifying records, and prosecutors would drop the conspiracy charges. As of September 2021, it is unclear what the outcome of the plea deal was or what the
officers are currently doing.

After filing adefamation lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, Virginia Roberts Giuffre continued to speak publicly about her experiences with Jeffrey Epstein and alleged abuses she suffered while she was a minor.

In August 2019, after Epstein's death, Giuffre filed a lawsuit against his estate, claiming that she had been sexually trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with numerous prominent individuals, including Prince Andrew. The lawsuit was filed under the Child Victims Act, a New York law that temporarily lifted
the statute of limitations on sex crimes against minors.

In March 2021, Giuffre filed a separate lawsuit against Prince Andrew, alleging that he sexually abused her on three occasions when she was 17 years old. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and accuses the prince of "willfully" and "knowingly" participating in Epstein's sex trafficking operation.

Giuffre continues to be a vocal advocate for survivors of sexual abuse and trafficking, and has spoken out against Epstein's associates and enablers, including Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew. She has also called for justice for all of Epstein's victims and for increased awareness of the prevalence of sex trafficking and exploitation.

It's difficult to provide a direct comparison between the Trump family and an "average American family" when it comes to the number of members accused of crimes, as there is no reliable data on the prevalence of criminal accusations within American families as a whole. However, it is notable that several members of the Trump family have been accused of or convicted of crimes over the years.

In terms of the most recent three generations of the Trump family, here are some examples of criminal accusations or convictions:

  • Fred Trump Sr. (father of Donald Trump) was accused of discriminatory rental practices in the 1970s, and his company was sued by the US Justice Department for violating the Fair Housing Act. The case was ultimately settled with an agreement that required the company to implement new policies to prevent discrimination.
  • Donald Trump has been accused of a wide range of criminal and unethical behavior over the years, including fraud, tax evasion, sexual assault, and obstruction of justice. He has not been convicted of any crimes, but he has settled a number of lawsuits and faced several investigations by law enforcement agencies.
  • Several members of the Trump campaign and administration have been convicted of crimes, including:
  • Paul Manafort: Trump's former campaign chairman was convicted on charges of tax and bank fraud, and pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy against the US and witness tampering. He was sentenced to a total of 7.5 years in prison.
  • Michael Cohen: Trump's former personal attorney and fixer pleaded guilty to charges of tax evasion, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison.
  • Roger Stone: Trump's longtime adviser and friend was convicted of charges related to lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing a congressional investigation. He was sentenced to 40 months in prison, but his sentence was later commuted by President Trump.
  • George Papadopoulos: A foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with individuals connected to the Russian government. He served 12 days in prison.
  • Rick Gates: A former campaign aide to Trump, Gates pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and lying to the FBI. He cooperated with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and was sentenced to 45 days in prison.
  • Michael Flynn: Trump's former national security adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador. His conviction was later overturned by the Department of Justice.

It's worth noting that this is not an exhaustive list, and there may be other members of the Trump campaign and administration who have been accused or convicted of crimes that are not included here.

The financial results of the three Trump generations.

At the time of demise of Frederick Trump he owned the following assets: an allegedly overleveraged Shore Haven Apartments: A six-story apartment building that he built in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, in 1916. So...pretty much nothing. The grandfather however has left a long trail of criminal activity allegations behind and not much of money, pretty much just like later his grandson judging on the information that he has made available to the public.

Fred Trump however left this world in 1999 with $ 300,000,000 together with a huge list of properties in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. It looks like he was deeply involved in the same type of business like his father and son, and yet he has managed to keep himself out of direct allegations save for the discrimination claims although apparently he had a say among the powerful families of New York.

The idea of "generational cycles" or "generational repetition" is often discussed in the context of psychology and sociology, and it is based on a number of scientific principles.

One of the key concepts behind generational cycles is that of intergenerational transmission of behaviors and traits. This idea suggests that patterns of behavior, values, and beliefs can be passed down from one generation to the next through various mechanisms, such as socialization, observation, and imitation. For example, a child who grows up in a household where their parents exhibit certain behaviors or hold certain beliefs may be more likely to adopt those same behaviors and beliefs as they grow up.

Another important concept in the study of generational cycles is that of epigenetics. Epigenetics refers to the study of changes in gene expression that can occur without changes to the underlying DNA sequence. Epigenetic changes can be influenced by a variety of factors, including environmental exposures, diet, and stress, and they can be passed down from one generation to the next. This means that experiences and exposures that a person's ancestors had may influence their own gene expression and behavior.

Research has also shown that experiences that occur in one generation can have lasting effects on subsequent generations. For example, studies have shown that children of Holocaust survivors have higher rates of depression and anxiety than children of non-survivors, suggesting that the trauma experienced by their parents has had a lasting impact on their mental health.

While there is scientific evidence to support the idea of generational cycles and the transmission of behaviors and traits across generations, it is important to recognize that individuals are not necessarily destined to repeat the same patterns as their ancestors. Other factors, such as individual choice and social context, can also influence a person's behavior and life trajectory but in case of Donald Trumps it is all water under the bridge already.
