Trump freaks out over Deutsche Bank money-laundering bombshell in early morning tweetstorm

Published

on

President Donald Trump lashed out against reporting about his suspicious transactions flagged by Deutsche Bank as potential money laundering.

The president attacked the newspaper that reported the concerns raised in 2016 and 2017, and denied that he had trouble getting loans from U.S. banks.

“The Failing New York Times (it will pass away when I leave office in 6 years), and others of the Fake News Media, keep writing phony stories about how I didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with me,” Trump tweeted. “WRONG! It is because I didn’t need money. Very old fashioned, but true. When you don’t need or want money, you don’t need or want banks.”

Trump insisted that banks were always willing to lend him money, and dismissed numerous reports to the contrary as made-up political attacks.

“Banks have always been available to me, they want to make money,” he said. “Fake Media only says this to disparage, and always uses unnamed sources (because their sources don’t even exist).”

The president rolled out his habitual attack on journalists as “the enemy of the people,” and again called the special counsel investigation of his campaign a “hoax.”

“The Mainstream Media has never been as corrupt and deranged as it is today,” Trump tweeted. “FAKE NEWS is actually the biggest story of all and is the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! That’s why they refuse to cover the REAL Russia Hoax. But the American people are wise to what is going on.”

Eric Trump, who now runs the Trump Organization while his father serves as president, admitted in 2014 that the family’s business got “all the funding we need out of Russia,” which the president flatly denied in his tweet storm.

“Now the new big story is that Trump made a lot of money and buys everything for cash, he doesn’t need banks,” Trump said. “But where did he get all of that cash? Could it be Russia? No, I built a great business and don’t need banks, but if I did they would be there…and DeutscheBank was very good and highly professional to deal with – and if for any reason I didn’t like them, I would have gone elsewhere….there was always plenty of money around and banks to choose from. They would be very happy to take my money. Fake News!”

Trump fires back at reports on his lousy polling with accusation of ‘the Greatest Presidential Harassment of all time’

Published

President Donald Trump started off his Saturday morning Twitter harangue by disregarding reports that his own internal 2020 polling shows him losing badly in key battleground states by saying things are great and that he is the subject of  "the Greatest Presidential Harassment of all time."

According to Trump's tweet: "Despite the Greatest Presidential Harassment of all time by people that are very dishonest and want to destroy our Country, we are doing great in the Polls, even better than in 2016, and will be packed at the Tuesday Announcement Rally in Orlando, Florida. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!"

Trump isn’t a president, he’s a gangster

Published

The FBI had to wiretap mafia bosses like John Gotti and Vincent “The Chin” Gigante to catch them breaking the law. All they had to do to catch Donald Trump on Wednesday night was turn on ABC News. Trump proceeded to commit multiple felonies out in the open on national television when he told George Stephanopoulos he would be happy to accept dirt on his opponent from foreign governments in his 2020 re-election campaign.

"Somebody comes up and says, ‘hey, I have information on your opponent,' do you call the FBI?" Trump asked rhetorically. "It's not an interference, they have information — I think I'd take it," Trump said. "I'll tell you what, I've seen a lot of things over my life. I don't think in my whole life I've ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don't call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do.” He paused for a moment. “Oh, give me a break — life doesn't work that way."

Is Trump setting the stage for a Chernobyl in America?

Published

on

According to a columnist for the Daily Beast, HBO's widely praised mini-series about the nuclear power plant accident in Chernobyl in 1986 should serve as a cautionary tale during the Donald Trump era which has seen the White House choose political ideology over science.

Noting that Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin has pointed out that he was motivated to create the miniseries as a "riposte to the global war on truth," the Beast's Clive Irving said Americans would be wise to sit up an take notice.
