Michael Cohen: Donald Trump family will be in big trouble when the ‘IRS gets their hands on them with all of the tax evasion’

During a chat with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Wednesday, President Donald J. Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen revealed what he really thought about the president’s sons – and their financial stakes.

“That’s one of the ironies here, of course, is for all of the corruption and all of the kind of pettiness and the ways in which different people’s fingers have been in different troughs, that it has been bad for the Trump business, right? The Trump family business in 2020, it seems to me, is in bad shape and that itself might create its own dangers and exposure in the person who is the president of the United States,” Hayes told Cohen.

“Well, Chris, no, no, no, don’t forget: he is the greatest negotiator. He can negotiate any deal that you want. He is the greatest. Whatever deal, I’m a great deal maker. No, you’re not, Mr. President. You are not a great deal maker,” Cohen said. “Actually, you are a lousy deal maker. You were fortunate enough to have some good people around you and you were fortunate enough to have daddy’s money coming into the game. Short of that, he would probably be just like Atlantic City – broke.”

I’m not quite sure how to ask this,” Hayes started. “What do the sons do? Like do they — I don’t understand what they do. The idea was that — I mean, it was obviously preposterous fiction the president was going to have, you know, his sons run the business and have nothing to do with them. That’s clearly not the case. Everything is all tangled together – the business, the presidency, the campaign. But, like, do they have jobs?”

“Yeah, they have jobs,” Cohen responded. “They go into the office. What they do is obviously, nobody knows. You know, Don, Jr. runs around and he makes speeches. Eric is in the office. I don’t know what he is running. You have Allen Weisselberg, the CFO in charge of the trust. They’re not buying anything. They’re not really doing anything. In all fairness, all they’re really trying to do is to retain whatever assets that they have because the market, of course, has taken a tremendous plunge, especially in commercial real estate where their properties have somewhere in the neighborhood of 30%, 40% vacancy. So, you know, the company, as you rightly stated, they’re in some serious trouble and they’re going to be in bigger trouble when the IRS gets their hands on them with all of the tax evasion. He’s going to have to pay that back.”

Congressman mocks Trumps for celebrating stock market record after Trump said it would collapse if Biden was elected

President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka celebrated a new record that the U.S. Dow Jones Industrial Average reached on Tuesday.

In a 60-second press conference Tuesday, Trump called it a "sacred number" and bragged about breaking the record, taking credit for it.

It's an interesting turn, however, since the president spent months warning that if President-elect Joe Biden won the stock market would crash.

"Joe Biden and the radical, socialist Democrats would immediately collapse the economy," Trump said in a Labor Day address Sept. 7. "If they got in, they would collapse it. You’ll have a crash the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Your stocks, your 401(k)s — remember, it’s the people that own these massive, listed companies. A lot of people: rich people and not so rich people and middle-income people. And those stocks will crash like you’ve never seen before."

Rupert Murdoch is considering buying off President Donald Trump to keep him from stealing some of his Fox News audience.

The president reportedly has considered launching his own network or joining another to rival the conservative Fox News, which has drawn his ire for perceived disloyalty, and Vanity Fair reported that Murdoch has considered making an offer Trump can't refuse.

“Rupert is going to make a humongous offer,” one of the sources said. “The thinking is, Let’s buy Trump off so he shuts the f*ck up.”

2020 Election

Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator

Published

President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.

In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
