The Hazoury brothers, promoters of Cap Cana, an ambitious real estate and tourism project located in the east of the Dominican Republic, were accomplished artists of birlibirloque in business. One of their referents was Donald J. Trump and they sought him out to use him as a hook in their plans. The New Yorker was confident and enthusiastically publicized the project even on his television program The Apprentice .
Shortly after, with the excuse of the bursting of the real estate bubble, Cap Cana left several hundred buyers, bondholders, banks and suppliers in the lurch. With a debt of around 750 million dollars, they also stopped paying Trump. Versed in all kinds of pranks, the future president of the United States found that his apprentices had thought they were smarter than him and had pilfered fifteen million.
