What’s up with Trump? A quick summary of dilemmas facing his campaign

During the last Republican debate, Marco Rubio and other candidates attacked business mogul Donald Trump on a number of fronts. Here is the run-down on the most recent list of complaints against Trump:

  • Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have challenged Trump to release his taxes, but Trump insists that he can’t release them because he is being audited. Trump even suggested in an interview with CNN on Thursday that the IRS was pursuing him because he is a “strong Christian.”

  • According to an article in The Washington Post, “Trump University marketed a free introductory seminar, which can then be upgraded to a three-day seminar that cost $1,495. Then, the students can buy “elite” packages starting at $10,000, with year-long mentorship programs at $35,000.” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a lawsuit that those who signed up for the Trump University seminars and mentorship programs had anticipated being mentored by successful real estate moguls like Trump himself. Instead, most of the attendees were mentored by failed entrepreneurs.  In the past, Trump has also said he’s won most of these lawsuits, but all three lawsuits are currently pending.

  • In January, the New York Times interviewed Trump off the record and he allegedly “called into question whether he would stand by his own immigration views,” according to BuzzFeed News. The New York Times is currently refusing to release the tape, but most agree that it would be best for Trump’s campaign if he insisted upon the tape’s release.

  • Trump was asked Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union whether he would disavow the support of the former KKK Grand Dragon and other white supremacists after Duke told his radio followers this week that a vote against Trump was equivalent to “treason to your heritage,” according to CBC News.

Now it’s up to voters to do what they will with this information that has been flooding the media over the last week or so, as we continue to watch this wild ride of an election continue.
