Trophy Father

Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer is hard to keep track of on a day-by-day basis. Supposedly Trump Jr. agreed to meet with Natalia Veselnitskaya, an attorney who represents businesses owned by the Russian government, at Trump Tower in New York on June 9, 2016. Attendees also included Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law.

The presidential campaign was discussed. Presented with the Times’s new finding, Trump Jr. confirmed this was his motivation for meeting with Veselnitskaya.

The Washington Post reported that the meeting at Trump Tower was arranged by music publicist Rob Goldstone at the request of Emin Agalarov, a Russian pop star whose family has ties to the Kremlin and has conducted business with Trump in the past.

The Agalarovs signed a preliminary deal with Trump to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, though the deal has been on hold since Trump became president.

Trump Jr. initially “gave no indication that he thought the lawyer might have been a Kremlin proxy.”

However, Trump Jr. was aware that the Russian government was trying to influence the U.S. presidential race and was willing to participate.

In his initial message, Goldstone wrote that “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump."

“If it's what you say I love it,” Trump Jr. wrote back.

In a subsequent message, Goldstone referred to Veselnitskaya as a “Russian government attorney.”

Only 58% of Trump's 20 million (not 110 million) followers are in the USA.

Within the USA, that's only 11 million - max. Counting reporters, radio and TV, local newspapers... The bully lies - again! He inflates his numbers X 10. How's his golf score? He must have a 360 handicap!

Trump's 20 Million Twitter Followers Get Smaller Under The Microscope

Trump has certainly changed the face of the GOP!
