This is from a conversation that author James Dodson had with Donald Trump, and his son Eric, three years ago:Golf writer: "How are you getting $100M for a golf course?"— justin kanew (@justin_kanew) May 7, 2017
Eric Trump: "We get all the 💰we need from Russia."
When the big day arrived, a dark, gray sky provided the first sign that all would not go as planned. Dodson was a little late arriving, and by the time he entered the Trump National Charlotte clubhouse, his host was already holding forth.
"Trump was strutting up and down, talking to his new members about how they were part of the greatest club in North Carolina," Dodson says. "And when I first met him, I asked him how he was — you know, this is the journalist in me — I said, 'What are you using to pay for these courses?' And he just sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million."
"So when I got in the cart with Eric," Dodson says, "as we were setting off, I said, 'Eric, who’s funding? I know no banks — because of the recession, the Great Recession — have touched a golf course. You know, no one’s funding any kind of golf construction. It’s dead in the water the last four or five years.' And this is what he said. He said, 'Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.' I said, 'Really?' And he said, 'Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.' Now that was three years ago, so it was pretty interesting."
So not only have Russians invested heavily in Trump Tower, and bought a mansion for 55 million more than Trump paid for it, but now they are also the money behind his string of golf courses?
I swear every day we learn that Trump has more and more ties with the Russians.
How much more evidence do we really need that he was compromised?
