Can You Imagine The Court System If Trump Becomes President

Donald Trump is the all time American flimflam businessman who routinely abuses the courts. He makes a mockery of the judicial system in every way possible. He is either threatening to sue someone or is suing someone, or someone is being forced to sue him.

When a contractor calls for the money he is owed, Trump offers to pay the poor fellow or gal, or bank for the matter, a severely discounted amount. And when the cry of foul goes up, he says, so sue me.

After all the wrangling is done Trump usually ends up paying pennies on the dollar or not at all — lawyers are the most important division of his corporate charade. In fact without his ruthless legal team, the disgusting orange man would be in the poorhouse long before he checks into his especially reserved suite in hell.

But here is the real potential horror story. For a significant slice of the business community, if Trump becomes president his suit happy world will become the standard business model. President’s always set the tone. The backlog of cases will swell like an anaconda having eaten a pig. It will slam the economy into unprecedented gridlock.

Of course this will only happen if the Donald hasn’t already blown the world to kingdom come. Oh, happy day!
