BUSTED: Man entrusted to run Trump sons’ hunting retreat worked in the US illegally for 18 years

Published

on

A new Washington Post investigation reveals that the man whom Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump entrusted to care for their hunting retreat in New York state is an undocumented immigrant who now fears he will be deported.

According to the Post, undocumented Mexican immigrant Juan Quintero worked two separate jobs for the Trump family: As the greenskeeper at the Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley and as a contractor at the Trump sons’ 171-acre hunting retreat.

Quintero was fired from both jobs earlier this year after reports revealed that multiple Trump establishments relied on undocumented labor at assorted hotels and golf clubs.

In an interview with the Post, Quintero said he felt used by the family who had relied on his work for years.

“All of the years you give them, and they just let you go,” he said. “They do not say, ‘Let’s do something, let’s try to help you.’ They simply said, ‘Your documents are not valid,’ and that is it.”

Although Quintero never revealed his status as an undocumented immigrant to the Trump family, he was allowed for stay on his job at the hunting retreat more than a year after he failed to provide its owners with a valid Social Security number.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
