On or shortly before June 17, 2004, Donald Trump sends a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg accusing street vendors near Trump Tower of destroying the city and faking veteran status.

Donald Trump blasted conditions on Fifth Avenue as “deplorable” in a letter to Mayor Bloomberg complaining about street vendors who are “rapidly destroying” the street’s ambience.

The letter, addressed “Dear Michael,” accuses vendors of pretending to be military veterans so they can peddle their wares on the high-rent street…

“Whether they are veterans or not, they [the vendors] should not be allowed to sell on this most important and prestigious shopping street,” The Donald wrote…

“I am perhaps most disappointed by the job being done by the Fifth Avenue Association to have allowed this situation to reoccur,” he wrote. “It is now as bad as it was 10 years ago…”

“The image of New York City will suffer,” Trump wrote. “I hope you can stop this very deplorable situation before it is too late.”

The letter echoes a similar one written in 1991 to New York’s Committee on Cities.
