Join Us on Thursday, July 7th @ the Capitol Hill Club
On Thursday, July 7th, residents of Metro DC and victims of Donald Trump’s predatory practices will hold a protest outside his meeting with House Republicans at the Capitol Hill Club to condemn his fraudulent economic record.
Despite Trump’s attempts to portray himself as a successful businessman, his professional record is littered with failures, fraud, and misrepresentations. Examples of fraud include the discredited for-profit Trump University, his long history of outsourcing manufacturing overseas, his claims to be self-funding his campaign despite actively soliciting campaign cash from wealthy special interests, and thousands of lawsuits against Trump-owned companies citing business malfeasance.
On the campaign trail he rails against outsourcing jobs to other countries – but many of Trump’s own products are made overseas, including Trump ties (China), Trump suits (Mexico), Trump furniture (Turkey), Trump picture frames (India), and Trump bar supplies (Slovenia).
Trump has run numerous companies, across various sectors, into the ground. While operating a string of casinos in New Jersey at the height of the Atlantic City gambling boom, Trump repeatedly overran costs, lost tens of millions of dollars, and ultimately filed for bankruptcy multiple times.
Everywhere Donald Trump goes, he leaves behind a trail of victims. His businesses are facing lawsuits for failing to adequately pay workers and contractors on his construction projects. Victims of the discredited Trump University real estate scheme were defrauded of millions of dollars, often coming out of the courses deeply in debt despite being promised huge success.
WHAT: Protest by DC residents and victims of Donald Trump’s deceptive practices, who will condemn his decades-long record as an economic fraud and con man who has deceived and swindled Americans out of millions of dollars to cover up his own failed business ventures.
WHEN: 8:00 AM on Thursday, July 7th, 2016
WHO: Washington DC residents and victims who have been personally defrauded by Trump’s predatory business practices
WHERE: Capitol Hill Club, 300 First St. SE, Washington, DC 20003
