On Radioactivity Tuesday we looked at the business dealings of Donald Trump with Pulitzer Prize winning reporter David Cay Johnston . Trump claims to be one of the most successful businessmen in the US and that his personal fortune is worth in excess of ten billion dollars. But Johnson, who  has been covering the business mogul since meeting him in Atlantic City in 1988, says that Trump has misrepresented his business acumen and true net worth. His new book, The Making of Donald Trump, covers the beginning of the Trump dynasty by looking at the business dealings of his father and grandfather,Trump’s rise as a casino mogul, his connections to the mob, and why he is so adamant about not providing his tax returns.
