The point about the illegal immigrants just shows how much the author knows about construction. You don't f*cking hire individual workers out of the workforce to build or demolish things. You hire a construction/contracting company to do the job, and they provide their own workers. The editor even slips it in at the very end that they were the contractor's workers, and they don't disclose whether or not they employ illegals because if they did they would get massive fines and even lose their permit which would effectively end their business.

In a lot of these points, Trump is just using the law and extremely inefficient bureaucratic programs to his advantage. The common point about him declaring bankruptcy is really funny, because people don't understand that there are actually two types of bankruptcies, Trump used Chapter 11's. Major U.S. companies use and abuse legal provisions constantly to evade and avoid taxes to the government. Trump actually used the law to avoid creditors at major investment banks and funds (and most of them came out the other side of his restructurings with lucrative deals). Some U.S. companies do complicated maneuvers like "offshore reincorporation" and other tax-avoidance mergers " a loophole Trump has actually criticized on the campaign trail. He used Chapter 11 for cashflow management purposes (and to slash hundreds of millions of dollars in company debts). If companies use the U.S. legal code to boost their profits and cashflow via tax avoidance, how is that less dubious than using Chapter 11 bankruptcy? Trump made business deals on the (correct) assumption that he could fall back on restructuring laws. Other firms make deals based on assumptions that they can fall back on tax loopholes.

Every point in 2) is fallacious as well as 4)

I'm not saying he hasn't made mistakes, but it's worth noting that all the mistakes he made were made when he was a Democrat.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
