Donald Trump would like tochange the subject of his own legal problemsthat he will face after the election. Famed authorSalman Rushdie posted on Facebook the list of legal issues facing the Republican nominee for President. The list is lengthy.For one, he must answer questions raised ina lawsuit, filed by a woman who claimsTrumpraped her when she was only 13 years old.

Trump in trouble if elected

That is just the beginning for Trump, who would be in anawkward position of answering these chargesshould he get elected. In another civil lawsuit, the trial that accusedTrump of defrauding students of Trump University in failing to deliver on promises of riches for students dishing out tens of thousand of dollars to the school and receiving nothing in return is scheduled to begin.

There was the federal court judge that Trump slammed

The Trump University trial judge hasgotten under Trump's skin, who attackedU.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, charging he is notan impartial arbiter, but a “hater” citinghis “Mexican” heritage. In fact, Judge Curiel was born in the state of Indiana. The students atTrump Universitywere promised to learn insight to the "secret Trump real estate strategies." Again, theawkwardness of a President-elect distracted by these issues would tarnish his administration.

But Salman Rushdie didn't stop at the child rape charges and the racketeering case of Trump University.

He called him"a sexual predator."He also pointed out that Trump has gone against tradition in not releasing his income tax returns and used "Trump Foundation" money for personal and business reasons. He also pointed out that he abused the family of an American-Muslim war hero who gave his life for his country.He than made a spirited defense ofHillary Clinton, saying the emails weren't a crime.

He closed by writing:"Come on, America. Focus."
