In the fine tradition of Benito Mussolini and Robert Moses, Donald Trump positions himself snugly into the pantheon of statism. He’s on record saying SCOTUS got it right on Kelo — one of the more egregious attacks on the Bill of Rights in decades.
Trump has a long record of seeking to personally profit from eminent domain abuse. One such incident occurred in 1994 when Trump joined forces with government officials in New Jersey in a legally unsuccessful attempt to kick an elderly widow out of her Atlantic City home in order to make room for a limousine parking for the nearby Trump Plaza hotel and casino.
The idiocracy is upon us.
