- 1990: Carl Lindner hired robocallers to rig a public opinion survey about Donald Trump held by USA Today. “What a spokeswoman for Carl H. Lindner Jr. had to say (in a statement) about Great American Insurance Co.'s heavy participation in USA TODAY's Donald Trump hot line: ‘Some of the employees of Great American Insurance, including Mr. Lindner, feel strongly that irrespective of one's own feelings toward an individual's lifestyle, Trump is one example of the entrepreneurial spirit that has been one of the major freedoms in this country and has been responsible for building businesses and creating jobs. We disapprove of an attitude that we think is harmful of that entrepreneurial spirit and disapprove when the media and other parties continue to discredit unnecessarily the people that are visible leaders of this country. We feel that the intent of this survey seemed to have been to have a good laugh at someone's misfortune.’” (USA Today, July 19, 1990)
