Feds cuff 19 in massive Lucchese mob takedown in New York

Source: New York Daily News

The Lucchese family’s ruling hierarchy was charged Wednesday along with 16 other associates on charges of murder, drug-dealing and gambling in a lengthy federal indictment.

Named in the 30-page racketeering case were Lucchese street boss Matthew Madonna, his underboss Steven (Wonder Boy) Crea Sr., and consigliere Joseph DiNapoli.

Madonna, Crea, and the underboss’ namesake son Steven Jr. were charged as conspirators in the gruesome November 2013 murder of notorious mob killer Michael Meldish.

He was executed gangland-style, shot once in the head as he sat behind the wheel of a rusty Lincoln Continental in the Bronx. Meldish, 62, was suspected in at least 10 mob hits in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Luchese family had a construction company "luchese construction company" that they were using as a front for all their construction related rackets. Since trump was a big time developer in NYC in the 80's , its very likely he had to deal with these guys.
In fact, there were quite a few rumors in NYC about Trump and his relationship with the mafia during that time.

He did business with the Gambino family (castenallo was the head of the gambino family):
