Billionaire Steyer sets out to stop supposed billionaire Trump
- Steyer, 58, retired from the San Francisco hedge fund where he made his billion in 2012 to focus full-time on philanthropy with an environmentalist bent. In his hedge fund days, Steyer said, he did business with people he trusted. That would never include the likes of Donald J. Trump.
Trump, he said, is a cheap chisler and a huckster. He is appalled that Trump borrows money with the intention of defaulting, uses bankruptcy as a business tactic, and has left a trail of lawsuits by, among others, workers who depended on him for their paychecks.
