Blood Covenant: The Story of the “Mafia Prince” Who Publicly Quit the Mob and Lived
In this clip, Michael Franzese spoke about his encounters with Trump during the 1980s but noted that the current president was never affiliated with the mob in any official capacity. Franzese explained how the developers in NYC had to deal with the mob to make things happen and considering that Trump was a real estate developer, things were no different for him.
Later, Michael Franzese goes into detail about the mob’s control over labor unions and how this allowed them to gain and exercise political power across the nation.
