As its stock collapsed, Trump’s firm gave him huge bonuses and paid for his jet – The Washington Post

VEA Vice-Chair Nell Minow is quoted in this story about Donald Trump’s brief role as CEO of a public company.

“When companies go public, when they first invite investors in . . . they say: ‘I promise you, you will come first. We are here to create shareholder value, and that’s why you should trust us,’ ” said Nell Minow, the vice chair of ValueEdge Advisors, which advises shareholders on corporate governance issues. “For them to say, ‘I don’t really care about you,’ it’s basically your [sell] signal. Who’s going to make sure my interests as a shareholder are going to be protected?”
