Skip to comments.Donald Trump attacks Obama's dealings with Tony Rezko
Posted on 04/11/2011 6:35:17 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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.
“Trump is playing the role of useful idiot”
To whom? Or to what?
Why wasn’t he asking all these questions when 0 was running?
Well at least someone has some nads.
Since we’re going back to things that should have been aired when he was running, how about his violation of the Logan Act and his campaigning for the murderous Muslim/Communist Odinga on the American taxpayer dollar?
This is political guerrilla warfare. Obie will never see the next attack coming...
I hear ya.
The naysayers simply prefer a candidate that sounds like a politician. I guess the addiction to political speak is hard for some to break free from. If someone like Donald had come around in 2008, Obama would have never been elected. Donald is a breath of fresh air.
Fox new should have been talking about this, but instead they were holding poison fish and sting rays.
why is trump the only one going after obama??? where is romney, pawlenty, there rest of the bozos going after this shady loser? “ ===========================================
The WON has hired Trump to dish the dirt early, get it out there, then it’s all cleaned up and forgotten by election Tuesday, November, 2012? The rest of our guys parakeet Trump, but in no way appear to run straight at Obama. Lack of experience, confidence and gravitas. All for naught. Trump can not make it through our primary after the White House reminds us of Trumps non-conservative life.
Aren’t I awful tonight? Pass more chocolate.
Fox is in the tank with the rest of them. I guess they are taking the “Good Cop” role for the Saps who believe what they hear in the Media.
Trump is firing on all cylinders carpet bombing obama daily.
Yeah right. Like Trump is going to be anyone’s second banana. And Palin’s? lol
Political “Art of War”. He will keep probing soft spots until Obie loses it...
Trump is on Greta. Greta says that Trump is doing a great service to the Dem Party by bringing up the BC issue. He still stands firm. Hmmmmmmmm.
Thank you Donald. You are a breath of fresh air. DC needs to be fumigated.
Imagine if it was a republican
35 years ago Bush missed a dentist appointment. The media nearly crucified him. Fake but accurate.
No.. Trump should run in the Democrat primary against Obama.
Now, there’s an idea!
Get ready for the MSM declaring that Trump gas no political experience.
Greta is a Democrat, a lawyer and a Scientologist.
Oh I think Trump is far more than an idiot
Oh I think Trump is far more than an idiot
I just heard Trumo on Greta amazing!
After all "The Donald" is really a liberal on most issues. Imagine Obama being forced into debating him in the primaries. That is where Trump could do the most damage.
Because someone is using him to soften up the target. Not sure who at this point, but Trump is the perfect guy to do it.
If The Donald wants to toss some money around, why doesn’t he delve in to the alleged wild limo ride in Gurnee and the unsolved death of Donald Young?
They are scared. Anyone who has been in politics for 10 minutes knows you don’t throw stones because they will come back at you. The Donald, he doesn’t care..he has a life outside of politics.
Lots of folks in Florida are ex-New Yorkers and will vote for The Donald in a heartbeat. So will the City's union guys. I find it amusing that posters on this board who have never uttered a good word about New Yorkers are mesmerized by Trump, the quintessential New Yorker.
I wonder what the connection is between Donald Trump, Rahm Emanuel and his brother Ari who is Trump's agent. Rahm left the White House on less than friendly terms. Trump donated to Rahm's mayoral election . . . could Rahm be passing on insider information as a form of revenge. As they say, politics makes strange bedfellows.
