Trump's National Golf Club
Keeping the little ship afloat
When Trump reached out to NY architect Andrew Tesoro to design his National Golf Club clubhouse, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and as a small business, it was exciting to have Trump's handwritten notes saying he "loved" the work. When it was all said and done, Donald Trump made it perfectly clear; however, "I really don't think I should pay anymore because I already spent too much on this building." Trump paid a little more than a third of what he was contracted to pay the architect for the work done. Now that's how you come in under budget!
The Briefing with Andrew Tesoro
Trump refused to pay contest winner $1M prize
Once again, The Donald was sued. In 2010 Trump held a hole-in-one contest with a million dollar prize. After someone made the hole-in-one, Donald choked and didn't want to pay up. The GOP nominee finally settled the suit for just $150,000, but Trump paid the money out of his charitable foundation, which is illegal.
