Trump tried to buy up decades worth of dirt the National Enquirer had on him: report

Published

on

According to a report at the New York Times, the scandal tabloid National Enquirer had an accumulation of stories acquired over decades on Donald Trump that he made efforts to purchase.

Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, put together a plan to buy all of those stories in order to bury them, in much the same way that they buried the story about his reported affair to adult actress Stormy Daniels, by using possibly illegal payoffs.

According to the report, a phone conversation taped by Cohen had him saying, “It’s all the stuff — all the stuff, because you never know.”

The Times based their report on insiders who knew about the discussions but would speak about them only on condition of anonymity, so as not to be drawn into the legal cases swirling around both Cohen and the president.

The report goes on to state that the two never followed through but that it was “strongly hinted at in a recording that Mr. Cohen’s lawyer released last month of a conversation about payoffs that Mr. Cohen had with Mr. Trump.”

According to the report, it was not disclosed how much the Enquirer and it’s owner, American Media, has on Trump and whether any of that information has been handed over to federal investigators.

Trump ‘reached into the Genesis chapter of the bigot’s bible’ to attack the Squad: journalist

Published

on

On Tuesday, journalist Jamil Smith wrote a column scorching President Donald Trump's attacks on "The Squad," as an act of utmost bigotry — and narcissism.

"Trump would surely love to run against these four women in 2020 rather than an actual opponent, positioning them all as racial bogeymen," wrote Smith. "It's a royal flush for his racist campaign: two black women, including one who wears a hijab and is a Somali refugee; a boricua from the Bronx; and a first-generation Palestinian-American from Detroit."

Kim Jong-un threatens to restart nuke tests as Trump’s efforts to talk to the regime fall apart again: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN's Brian Todd reported that the North Korean regime is on the brink of rescinding what little they promised President Donald Trump, as the future of his efforts to continue talks appear uncertain.

"Kim Jong-un's regime is once again in negotiation by intimidation," said Todd. "Just two weeks after their historic meeting at the DMZ, and President Trump's short stroll into North Korea, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un appears to be threatening to start testing his nuclear weapons again. In a new statement, Kim's foreign ministry calls the joint U.S./South Korean military exercises planned for next month a breach of the main spirit of what President Trump and Kim agreed to in Singapore, and says, 'We are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S."
