NEW YORK, Ny. – A former au pair for the Trump family told the New York Post on Friday that Republican presidential candidate and former reality TV star Donald J. Trump refused to speak to his eldest daughter, Ivanka, for nearly nine months after losing a heated game of Monopoly to her in the summer of 1994.
“Mr. Trump was very adamant that the game had been rigged against him,” Maria Gomez told the Post. “He said the dice had weights in them and that nobody ever lands on Boardwalk.” Mrs. Gomez, who served as Ivanka’s live-in nanny from 1987 until 1998, said the billionaire entrepreneur was “absolutely livid” that he’d lost the popular real estate trading game to a thirteen year-old girl. “Mr. Trump picked up the box with all the money in it and threw it out the window,” recalled Mrs. Gomez. “He said, ‘Nobody knows real estate better than me, okay?’ and put on his jacket and stormed out of the room.”
However, Trump’s outburst was far from over. The self-made billionaire reportedly left his posh Manhattan residence in a fit of rage, ordering his chauffeur, Mikhail, to drive straight to a private runway at JFK International Airport where his personal Boeing 757 jet airliner sat fueled and waiting on the tarmac. Trump was whisked away to Florida where he remained in seclusion for weeks at Mar-a-Lago, his lavish $300 million Palm Beach ocean-side estate. “Mr. Trump made it clear to the help that anyone caught playing Monopoly with the children would be fired on the spot and deported,” said Mrs. Gomez, who was granted U.S. citizenship in 2005.
The startling disclosure comes mere days after the billionaire businessman announced that he will refuse to accept the results of the election in the event Hillary Clinton is voted into office. “I will take a look at the time,” he said when asked pointedly as to whether he would accept defeat.
The GOP hopeful has gone so far in recent months as to warn supporters of his presidential campaign that the U.S. election process is rigged. “It’s rigged, folks. Okay? It’s rigged,” Trump told an immense crowd in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. “I’ve seen this kind of thing before many, many years ago when my own daughter Ivanka – a thirteen year-old girl – she beat me at a game of Monopoly,” he said. “And you know what, folks, she shouldn’t have. She absolutely should not have; I had Boardwalk, I had Park Place, and I had all the Railroads. But the fact, ladies and gentlemen, is the odds are stacked against you. They are stacked against you and they are rigged.”
