Despite Donald Trump's repeated boasts to be as pure as driven snow, since 2006, in return for millions of (stolen) dollars, the Trump name and image has been used to promote blame-the-victim 'MLM income opportunity' cultic rackets in general, and the one known as 'ACN' ('American' a.k.a. 'All Communications Network'), in particular.
These are just a couple of examples of the unreserved praise which Mr. Trump has publicly heaped on the 'ACN' racket and its instigators.
Faced with a few mainstream US journalists finally beginning to ask mildly-searching questions about 'ACN,' Mr. Trump now recites a very different fairy story. Indeed, his reality-denying reaction to his participation in the 'ACN' racket, demonstrates that Mr. Trump knows full-well that he's left himself open to an avalanche of lawsuits, and to criminal prosecution, because the majority of persons who have signed up for the pernicious 'ACN' game of commerical make-believe since 2006, undoubtedly did so on Mr. Trump's personal recommendation.
In a tragicomic interview with the Wall St. Journal, Mr. Trump now asks the world to believe that 'ACN' had only employed him to give motivational speeches.
'I do not know the company. I know nothing about the company other than the people who run the company.'
'I’m not familiar with what they do or how they go about doing that, and I make that clear in my speeches.'
Let's be perfectly clear about this, Donald Trump has been one of a number charlatan-parasites who (for obvious reasons) have all attached themselves to the ongoing criminogenic phenomenon of 'MLM income opportunity' cultic racketeering. i.e. Mr. Trump has steadfastly pretended to have access to an exclusive secret knowledge which can enable ordinary poor humans to transform into fabulously wealthy superhumans (just like himself), and that he's prepared to share this exclusive secret knowledge with anyone (for a price).
More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has become popularly known as 'Multi-Level' or 'Network Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organized crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs, leads, ' etc.).
