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.

‘Should we talk about Ivanka?’: MSNBC guest calls for Trump family investigation if Biden’s son is scrutinized

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.

"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.

Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son

Published

on

In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.

Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:
