    Trump breaks the law concerning doing business with Cuba and Fidel Castro one day and lies to Hispanics about Cuba the next.


    A company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.

    Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.

    The payment by Trump Hotels came just before the New York business mogul launched his first bid for the White House, seeking the nomination of the Reform Party. On his first day of the campaign, he traveled to Miami, where he spoke to a group of Cuban-Americans, a critical voting bloc in the swing state. Trump vowed to maintain the embargo and never spend his or his companies’ money in Cuba until Fidel Castro was removed from power.

    Obama has allowed flights to begin to Cuba and a hotel interest to begin operations there also. All of that may be illegal. Castro is American's favorite murderer and racist. The recent negotiations with Cuba were supposed to free 53 political prisoners, but Bertha Soler, a leader of the famous Ladies in White, said that Castro double-crossed Obama on that deal also and some of the 53 have already been re-arrested. Actually, Obama's foray into Cuba allowed Castro to increase repression because he now had the friendship of the White House as well as the Vatican to serve as a cover according to the Ladies in White, who endure weekly arrests and beating by Castro thugs for attending mass dressed in white and walking silently carrying gladiolas--all of which is a threat to communism.

    Corporations such as Cargill are lobbying the government to buy grain and send it to Cuba at tax-payer expense so that both Cargill and Castro can get a free lunch.

    The Democrats hate Cuban refugees because they lean Republican because of JFK's betrayal of them at the Bay of Pigs. This hatred of Cuban-Americans by the Democrats causes them to get in bed with the Communist Cubans, who laugh at Obama. Cuban is still communist and still an outpost and naval base of Russia.

    Makes no difference how much smoke some of you blow, or attempt to blow. It is the current election and Trump's illegal dealings with Cuba and his telling lie to Florida Hispanics is what will sway even more voters to vote for Hillary.

    It is funny that Democrats are now pouncing on this allegation of wrongdoing from 18 years ago.

    Considering that at the time, a list of Democrats from Jimmy Carter to Jesse Jackson called for ending the embargo. Not to mention every country in Latin America plus Canada, Mexico, most European countries, the UN General Assembly. And our current Democrat president is doing just that. But every advantage must be sought in an election year.

    If the allegations are true, it was in fact just a few representatives of Seven Arrows investment Co. checking out possibilities there, should the sanctions be lifted. And also if true, there is no possibility of legal action since the statute of limitations ran out a long time ago.
