Skip to comments.Donald Trump attacks Obama's dealings with Tony Rezko

President Obama never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko, said Donald Trump on Fox News.
People should look into that one, he added.
Trump once again went on the offensive against Obama. His previous point of attack was doubts over Obamas birthplace. Now, its the latters long history with Tony Rezko, who Hillary Clinton in 2008 called a slum landlord.
Rezko is am Illinoisan political fundraiser who was convicted for fraud and bribery in 2008. He was accused of using his political position to extort money from businesses seeking contracts from the Illinois Teachers System Board and the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.
Back in the 1990s (before Rezkos offenses took place), two companies owned by Rezko gave the first ever contributions to Obama's Illinois Senate campaign. In the 2000s, he served on Obamas U.S. Senate campaign finance committee.
In 2005, Rezkos wife bought a lot adjacent to a house Obama purchased for $625,000 and subsequently sold a part of it to Obama. The deal generated much controversy back in Obamas 2008 presidential campaign.
Trump went on to say that the President of the United States needs to be able to deal properly something he said Obama isnt able to do because the latter never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko before assuming the presidential office in January 2009.
Trump criticized Americas deal with China, which will have the latter making a $300 billion profit this year. In prior interviews, Trump also criticized Americas deal OPEC and blamed it for high oil prices.
2 years into the nightmare & this is completely untouched by the foreign-state-run media.
“Imagine if it was a republican”
Trump is playing the role of useful idiot. His decision to go after Obama is a real problem for Team Bambi given Trump’s profile in the public eye.
why is trump the only one going after obama??? where is romney, pawlenty, there rest of the bozos going after this shady loser?
You're 10 days late on that one.
... and the author of my “Art of War” books said Sun Tzu wasn’t for political battles...
Donald's got nothing to lose and everything to gain in this fight.
Bring it on!
As I’ve said before Trump is done with the anti american, anti bussiness obama.
Trump is tapping right into what Americans like the best..and that is great stories like this where the mud really flies.
Note that the Obots have just got up having been knocked down in round one. Round two, and they are flat on their backs again.
The “bozos” are in hiding waiting for the next election.
Right now, I’d campaign and vote for Donald. At least the guy’s got some gonads to stand up and tell it like it is.
Pawlenty already commented that he thought this was a non issue.
Romney is playing it coy. He thinks he can move in after the dust settles.
Palin..well, she is trying to play the middle ground also, Except she has flip flopped on it lately. First, it was a distraction and embarassment, and now its OK.
She lost my support after that one.
The only one who isnt chicken shit is Trump.
The Donald has it over them.
He has success in real life, been up and down, warts are out in the open, and he talks like a common person, but is very smart....
The debates should be fun ............
The initials are same as Tea Party
” Right now, Id campaign and vote for Donald. At least the guys got some gonads to stand up and tell it like it is.”
Live in Fla, and I can tell you more and more people are liking what they see from The Donald
Trump, running for President, completely bypasses Republican candidates, and GOES FOR OBAMA JUGULAR!
My dreams are getting better all the time. Trump, hot on the trail of the Muslim Marxist!
Watch as Fox News goes in the tank with the rest. Tea Party Paranoia is sweeping Washington DC.
