This isn't an issue with Trump - it has been standard US practice to go after foreign businesses/business people who have been labelled "criminals" based on very little evidence, often provided by US companies rather than law enforcement.

Guilt/justice has very little to do with most of these cases - convictions or "plea bargins" tend to be the lesser of two evils rather sound convictions with fair trials.
