After efforts to secure some other form of payment went nowhere, the Trump campaign called the trio offering them to perform at an even higher profile event: Trump’s highly publicized event for veterans that he threw to conflict with the Republican debate, which he had shockingly decided to skip. This offer came the night before the event, and the group rushed from Florida to Iowa to attend. When they arrived, they were not permitted to perform, and they were also stiffed out of compensation for their plane, rental car, and hotel expenses.
“These are guys that insist they’re straight shooters,” Popick said. “‘You may not like what we’re going to say, but we mean what we say and we say what we mean’ — and they just would not say anything of any substance! I’ve invested a lot of time, effort, money and it’s just been complete silence.”
This story fits the pattern of how Donald Trump has treated his business partners over the years. Hundreds of people, many of them small businesses, have also accused Trump of refusing to pay what was owed to them.

Kind of makes you think, will this be the American people, if he gets elected?
I have absolutely no doubt that the American people will be stiffed by Trump. Absolutely none.
Popick says the group’s most nationally visible moment wound up costing them, from the money spent on promotional materials for the table that was provided to losing other opportunities due to the group’s relationship with the Trump campaign.
