Longtime Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen has reportedly said that the Trump Organization was like a “cult,” one of his close friends explained on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” on Wednesday.

Donny Deutsch is a longtime friend of Cohen who revealed the characterization after his friend was sentenced to three years in federal prison.
