Trump lost his bid to build Sydney's first casino due to his alleged "Mafia connections"

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.

Throughout his career, Trump made questionable connections of his own. One of them was Joseph Weichselbaum, a drug trafficker whom Trump vouched for before his November 1987 sentencing by a U.S. District Court judge, as “conscientious, forthright, and diligent" and "a credit to the community,” as reported in the investigative publication The Smoking Gun in 2016. Trump later told Politico he “hardly knew” Weichselbaum.

Trump also has links to Russian-born businessman Felix Sater, who pleaded guilty to participating in a Mafia-linked stock scheme in 1998 and then became an informant. Sater worked for Bayrock Group, a partner in the construction of the Trump SoHo hotel. When Sater’s mob connections became public after a 2007 New York Times report, Trump distanced himself from him, saying: “I didn’t really know him very well.”

The following from "The Australian" news paper:

Trump will vouch for a drug trafficker: “conscientious, forthright, and diligent" and "a credit to the community,”
All the way up until the criminal is exposed, then Trump says, "I hardly knew the guy". We've seen it with Carter Page, Paul Manafort and others again and again.

Trump is the Orange Godfather of Lies. And his base laps up his swill while begging for more.

Every one in the world sees Trump for what he is. Except American Republicans. Their ignorance is a danger to us all.

Mafia ties are what Trump has the most to worry about from Mueller's investigation
