The politically conservative group Club for Growth attacked Donald Trump, who is apparently considering a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, for alleged abuse of the power of eminent domain. The Club for Growth claimed that in 1997, Trump tried to evict an elderly widow to expand an Atlantic City casino. It also claims that Trump stated his opinion regarding the Supreme Court case Kelo v. New London as: “I happen to agree with it 100 percent, not that I would want to use it. But the fact is, if you have a person living in an area that’s not even necessarily a good area, and government, whether it’s local or whatever, government wants to build a tremendous economic development, where a lot of people are going to be put to work and make area that’s not good into a good area, and move the person that’s living there into a better place — now, I know it might not be their choice — but move the person to a better place and yet create thousands upon thousands of jobs and beautification and lots of other things, I think it happens to be good.”
