We are at a dangerous moment in America. Republicans have effectively sanctioned violent vigilante justice.
Democratic elections expert David Shor has a stark warning: if Democrats think they're sitting pretty, they're deluding themselves.
Donald Trump is really, really hoping that he will get to be the president again one day. For a number of reasons, though, that is very unlikely. So now the former president is back to a career as a businessman.
And despite his claims to the contrary, Trump is not a very good businessman. And following the insurrection he incited on January 6th has made his “brand” even more toxic than it was before. According to former Watergate Investigator Jill Wine-Banks, that may doom the entire Trump Organization.
Wine-Banks made the comments during an interview with MSNBC’s Alicia Menendez. She told the host, “His popularity has diminished greatly,” said Wine-Banks. “His properties are of less value now. Many buildings are taking the name Trump off of them because it is a deterrent to people, either playing golf at his golf courses or a deterrent to people buying condos in his buildings.”
The former investigator continued, “Think about the bank loans that we know are coming due, and his income has gone down as best everybody can tell from all the reporting. So, where is he going to get the money to pay back those loans, and now a lot of banks will simply not lend to him anymore. So, how is he going to change the source of income to pay back the original lender with new lenders?”
“So, it could totally wipe out the Trump Organization. There are some questions about some fraud in real estate and in defrauding people who bought condos. All of that mounts up, and eventually, the money runs out. So, he should be worried not just about whether he will be charged with a crime and whether a jury will convict him, but with being bankrupted.”
Donald Trump has always said that he is a great friend to people of Jewish faith. How could he be anti-Semitic, Trump argues, his son-in-law Jared Kushner is Jewish and his daughter Ivanka converted when she married him.
But the president has also been slow to condemn his supporters who have anti-Semitic beliefs. After white supremacists marched in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia chanting “Jews will not replace us,” Trump famously referred to them as “very fine people.”
And now, it seems that some of Trump’s supporters associate his name with anti-Semitism and racism. A Jewish cemetery was recently defaced with vandals spray painting the name Trump on headstones.
Notably the incident took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Trump will be holding the final rally on his campaign in Grand Rapids.
The vandalism was first reported by the Anti-Defamation League of Michigan, who tweeted, “We are appalled by the reported desecration of gravestones at the Ahavas Israel Cemetery in Grand Rapids, MI. We are in close touch with the Jewish community and Law Enforcement to investigate this vandalism.”
