Trump CAUGHT In Corruption Deal

>>Earlier we reported that the Air Force
had launched an investigation into members of the military who had been staying at a
Trump property in Scotland. In fact, more and more federal money, taxpayer
money, has been spent at that specific resort throughout Trump’s presidency. And so the question is hey, is there maybe
a violation of the emoluments clause, is there a waste of taxpayer money here? And what we’ve just learned is that Trump
actually had a small deal, not a small deal, he had a significant deal with a small airport
near his resort. And he had created that deal back in 2014,
and then in 2015 he starts running for office, and that is the year where you can see activity
at his resort increase substantially. So let’s look at the reporting here, and this
is the Trump Turnberry property in Scotland. Documents obtained from Scottish government
agencies show that the Trump Organization, and Trump himself, played a direct role in
setting up an arrangement between the Turnberry resort and officials at Glasgow Prestwick
Airport. So as Trump began running for president, the
Pentagon decided to ramp up its use of the same airport to refuel Air Force flights and
gave the local airport authority. I’m sorry, gave the local airport authority
the job of helping to find accommodations for flight crews who had to remain overnight. So it was kind of like a perfect cocktail
for for Donald Trump because he had created this deal back in 2014, right, and Trump’s
like hey, I’ll scratch your back, you scratch mine. I will direct more air travel through your
airport as long as you direct more people to stay in my resort, that was the deal. Then in 2015 the Pentagon comes in and decides
hey, we’re gonna use this small airport in Scotland more often for refueling purposes. And so at that point, Trump, or I should say
this airport through Trump, starts directing more people to stay at that resort.>>Yeah.>>As part of that arrangement, the Trump
Organization worked to get Trump Turnberry added to a list of hotels that the airport
would routinely send aircrews to. Even though the Turnberry Resort is 20 miles
from the airport, farther away than many other hotels, and has higher advertised prices.>>Yeah, to the point where, as I’m sure you
talked about when we initially reported on this, their per diem couldn’t even buy them
food. It wasn’t enough to actually pay for it. There’s no reasonable reason why you would
send them there. It is simply corruption, and as you pointed
out, it had been in the works for a few years, then you see 2017, the number of flights shoot
up, 2018 even more. By 2018, it’s more than five times that what
it was just three years earlier.>>Yeah, that’s the most damning part of it. I mean, it would of been a fine deal if he
weren’t President of the United States, right? He’s working in the hotel business, so that
sounds totally reasonable. The only thing he knows how to do is take
two things together and make a deal out of them, even if it’s, in the end, gonna bankrupt
him. He always is trying to make these little things
work. But when it comes to Presidenting he has no
idea what he’s doing, obviously, and he had no idea that something like this would be
obvious to the rest of us if you just do a little bit of digging. It’s problematic, he doesn’t even understand
what the emoluments clause means>>And I mean, this is just yet another example
of Trump using the office of the president to enrich himself, to enrich his family, to
make more money. And honestly waste finite resources on whatever
makes him and his family wealthier. So Trump was confronted about this by reporters,
he doesn’t do press conferences anymore, he usually speaks in front of a loud helicopter
or Air Force One. So unfortunately, that’s the type of audio
quality we’re dealing with, but nonetheless, let’s take a look.>>When a plane stops at a massive international
airport and gets fuel, I don’t own the airport. When pilots stay, I own a lot of different
places, soon you’ll find that out. Cuz at some point, prior to the election,
I’m going to be giving out a financial report of me, and it’ll be extremely complete. I’m gonna give out my financial condition,
and you’ll be extremely shocked that the numbers are many, many times what you think. I don’t need to have somebody take a room
overnight at a hotel.>>Except you have defrauded students in the
past just to make a buck. I mean, through Trump University, that is
exactly what Donald Trump did. He was found guilty of that, and had to pay
a settlement to the tune of $22 million. So he is beyond petty, and beyond selfish
and greedy. So I 100% believe that he would force these
types of deals in an effort to make a buck.>>And he doesn’t understand the difference
between government and financial institutions, because he’s the natural Frankenstein of the
Republican Party. That he’s so connected and interwoven, through
corruption, industry, corporations with what the government does that he’s just doing it
out in the open now. And it’s just all okay for him because he’s
just not bright enough to see it. But he is what the GOP has created, and what
our broken campaign finance system has created.>>And the reason why he’s able to do it out
in the open, let’s keep it real, the GOP was never gonna hold him accountable, why would
they, right? I mean, they’re so tribalistic in the way
that they deal with members of their own party. They will never hold any member of their own
party accountable. Don’t equate them with the left, which in
my opinion, the left goes too far in nitpicking every little thing when it comes to the.>>And it’s always from the right, the perspective
of how we hold them accountable is from this from the right on the left, yeah.>>Right, exactly, and one other thing I wanted
to add though is in our system of government where we’re supposed to have checks and balances,
who would hold them accountable? It would be Congress. And what’s Congress doing? Specifically, what’s Democratic leadership
doing? Nothing, so if you communicate to Trump through
your inaction that he’s above the law, then he’s gonna continue enriching himself, he’s
gonna continue breaking the law, and he’s gonna be brazen about it. He’s gonna be super transparent about it. One other thing I wanted to note is that the
Trump Organization executives held a series of meetings with the airport officials to
negotiate terms that would lead to referrals, the document show. I mentioned that earlier, as a list of hotels
that we use, and this is a statement by a manager at the airport. As a list of hotels that we use for our business,
being honest, Turnberry was always last on the list, based on price. That was an email from back in June of 2015,
but because of the deal, all of a sudden, the airport is now suggesting that people
stay at Trump’s property. So going back to what we had talked about
yesterday, and I think it’s important to reiterate these numbers. The number of such stops by the Air Force
planes rose from 180 in 2017 to 257 last year, and 259 so far this year. The 259 stops this year included 220 overnight
stays at Trump’s property. Since October of 2017, records show 917 payments
for expenses, including fuel at the airport worth a total of $17.2 million. And as we mentioned yesterday, the Federal
government has spent a total of $5.6 million at the Trump property since 2015. In the four years prior, okay, when Obama
was president, the Federal government spent a total of $119,000.>>Yeah.>>That sums it up.>>He is robbing the US taxpayer and he’s
doing it transparently while Nancy Pelosi sits back and refuses to impeach him.

Like Booker, Warren, Sanders, Yang, Castro, and Williamson, etc.

  11. A Superpower is expressed in the needs of its citizens. We think the superpower is the United States, yet we have outsourced the foundation of our economic products to third world countries. Thus we are at the behest of their economic sway. We, the United States, are not the dominant Superpower, the dominant Superpower is the one feeding us our import. Mainly Asian Countries.

    More than a quarter of the respondents – or 26.5% – said that in the past year, they have redirected investments originally planned for China to other regions. That's an increase of 6.9 percentage points from last year, the AmCham report said, noting that technology, hardware, software and services industries had the highest level of changes in investment destination.

  25. Proof conservatives don't really care about the constitution, rule of law or morality; just raw power and rulership. If Obama did this they would have actually impeached him with cowering Democrat liberals helping them; when its the white/orange guy in their party, they look the other way and even make excuses for his crimes. This says as much about conservatives as it does about Trump.

  30. This is what's corruption and it's in the news today and we know it's true because Julian Assange outed this 3 years ago.
    oscow routed millions of dollars to the U.S. expecting the funds
    would benefit ex-President Bill Clinton's charitable initiative while
    his wife, Hillary Clinton, worked to reset relations with Russia, an FBI
    informant in an Obama administration-era uranium deal stated.

    In a
    written statement to three congressional committees, informant Douglas
    Campbell said Russian nuclear executives told him that Moscow hired
    American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide to influence Hillary Clinton, then
    secretary of state, among others in the Obama administration, The Hill reported on Wednesday.

    said Russian nuclear officials expected APCO to apply its $3 million
    annual lobbying fee from Moscow toward the Clintons' Global Initiative.
    The contract detailed four $750,000 payments over a year's time.

    was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global
    Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to
    ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything
    from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation
    agreement," Campbell stated.

  31. AGGRESSIVE clowns working overtime with their distorted fraudulent news ranting. AGGRESSIVES are clearly inflicted with TDS and need to seek mental health therapy.

  32. I bet no one realizes why Trump uses his Twitter account to affect the stock market. It’s called PUTS in the Options market and if he buys on the downside of a stock he will receive the spread when it stock tumbles let’s say the difference between $100 and $50 per share. Remember how he tweeted about Boeing and the stock fell, how about Amazon and their stock fell to how many companies has he done this with when he tweets. How many is he vested in.

  33. Any government should be mandated to find lowest cost accommodations meals etc, or simply be given a small reasonable per diem and if the gov employee wants to stay someplace nice or a steak dinner, they can make up the difference out of yheir own pocket

  34. Great! Trump is going to supply us with his financial overview. Then we will see an unbiased version of his true financial position. Much better than that IRS garbage. Banks much prefer your personal financial statements, unaudited, when giving credit. Trump is nothing if not entertaining.

  35. Biuld a wall =skimming money Suger free like mind free the statue of liberty she will liberate u from ur mind she will rob u from ur mind the statues of liberty that bitch is a SHISTER

  36. Gomer would say" surprise surprise". It might have taken Gomer a while to get the answeres but he always knew the difference between right and wrong w/ out question.

  37. So Trump (WH) can pay, maybe even prepay Trump Hoe), regardless if it’s millions… but, Trump (WH) can’t pay the city of El Paso the half a million he owes them?

  38. if only democrats held Obama and Clinton to the same standards as they do Trump and Bush. on the other hand, if only repubs held Trump and Bush to the same standards as they do Obama and Clinton. actually, if only Americans would hold all politicians to the same level of standards. it's simply amazing how sheepish both sides of the aisle are, just shows how ignorant and dumb most Americans are.
