Trump Sought Deal To Build a Trump Tower In Moscow While He Ran For President: Report

Published

In a new development that is sure to add more fuel to the Russia investigation, the Washington Post reported on Sunday that Donald Trump was pursuing a plan to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow while he was running for president in late 2015 and early 2016.

During the negotiations, a Russian-born real estate developer urged Trump to come to Moscow to tout the proposal and suggested that he could get President Vladimir Putin to say “great things” about Trump, according to several people who have been briefed on his correspondence.

Two of the people with knowledge of the exchange told The Post that the developer, Felix Sater, predicted in a November 2015 email that he and Trump Organization leaders would soon be celebrating — both one of the biggest residential projects in real estate history and Donald Trump’s election as president.

Sater wrote to Trump Organization Executive Vice President Michael Cohen, “something to the effect of, ‘Can you believe two guys from Brooklyn are going to elect a president?’ ” said one person briefed on the email exchange. Sater emigrated from what was then the Soviet Union when he was 6 and grew up in Brooklyn.

The details of the deal, which have not previously been disclosed, provide evidence that Trump’s business was actively pursuing significant commercial interests in Russia at the same time he was campaigning to be president — and in a position to determine U.S.-Russia relations.

The new details from the emails, which are scheduled to be turned over to congressional investigators soon, also point to the likelihood of additional contacts between Russia-connected individuals and Trump associates during his presidential bid.

White House officials declined to comment on the report.

Hammer-Wielding Trump Supporter Arrested After Threatening Latino Couple: ‘Get Out Of My Country!’

Published

President Donald Trump has sparked a radical movement led by racism and hatred in America. That being said, this past weekend, a hammer-wielding Trump supporter was arrested after she threatened a Latino couple and told them to go back to their country.

According to KPRC-TV, 60-year-old Constance Lynn Bono was arrested on Sunday after she brought out a hammer and threatened Arturo Corovez and his wife, Dr. Lia Franco.

Bono reportedly told the couple to “go back to Mexico.” The couple is actually from Ecuador.

Dr. Franco has actually been stationed in New Orleans to help take care of COVID-19 patients while she finishes her medical residency.

The couple decided to take a trip to Texas over the weekend to take a break. That’s when they were confronted by the vicious Trump supporter.

They noticed a woman following behind them while driving to a restaurant, and noticed she was displaying a hammer as she drove.

“She stopped behind us,” Cordovez said. “After that she started showing a hammer through the mirror. She was shaking her arm … and cursing at us, I think. I was thinking, what did I do?”

They called 911 and pulled into a gas station, where the woman pulled alongside them and began screaming.

“She said screamed, ‘You Mexicans, get out of my f*cking country, go back to your f*cking country,’” Franco said.

Then the woman got out of her car holding the hammer and made threatening motions before police arrived and took her into custody.

According to the report, Bono was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years in prison.

If prosecutors believe she was motivated by racism, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, carrying a possible life sentence.

“I think she needs help, she needs treatment, but that doesn’t justify the fact she needs to follow the laws of her country,” Franco said. “If she broke the laws here, she needs to pay for what she did. But for me as a physician, I think the most important thing is she needs treatment, she needs help.”
