I will also point out, that the issue: Taking private property thru eminent domain, by Trump on a 75 year old woman in Atlantic City... When Coking refused to sell to Trump, the city of Atlantic City condemned her house, using the power of eminent domain, not Trump, in fact, he never purchased the property. It was sold at auction in 2010, for $510,000. BUT, of note. Trumps accuser Jeb’s family, used Private immanent domain to force sales for a football stadium for the Dallas Cowboys stadium...Something ole Jeb, forgot to mention.
Jeb tends to forget MUCH about property rights....
In 2002, many patriots traveled to Florida to protest a land grab by Gov. Bush who was taking farms for his envirofreak friends for ‘everglades restoration’.

Also, Scotus John Roberts, friend of Ted Cruz and recruited by Cruz does not object to the Kelo decision. He says the congress still has the power to regulate Kelo, if they choose to.
Good info.... shout this from the housetops!
The fact is the poor little old lady was NEVER thrown out of her house, she never spent a single minute homeless.
Trump made her a very generous offer and according to a brief interview of a local resident that appears in a video at this link, she was holding out for much more.
Of course, that can’t be proven one way or the other.
The ad that Cruz is running starts out with a massive lie-that Trump got rich using eminent domain and it was cleverly crafted to make the viewer think that the woman was thrown out of her house, which never happened.
The house was not torn down until after it was sold at auction about 20 years later, and after the poor little old lady moved into a retirement home in California.
I am not excusing Trump (or anyone else) for eminent domain abuse, but it is possible for Cruz to make his points with facts rather than lies, but lying appears to be his preferred technique because you can harvest more votes from the low-information voter bloc that way.
I would like to add that Jeb is shouting about Trump mocking a handicapped person. Yet it was Jeb who allowed Terri Schiavo, an innocent woman, be killed in an horrific way and was okay with it.
