Donald Trump Brings Up Obama’s dealings with Tony Rezko

The RNC released this web video titled “Lapse in Judgement” back in 2008. The ad revealed Barack Obama’s dealings with convicted felon and close friend Tony Rezko.

International Business Times

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 Obama’s birthplace. Now, it’s the latter’s 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 Rezko’s 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 Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign finance committee.

In 2005, Rezko’s 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 Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Trumps decision to go after Obama is a real problem for obama given Trump’s profile in the public eye.

One thing for sure imo, anyone that wants to run for president should be bringing all of this up. Unless they are a McCain type, then they will tell us how obama is a man of honor like McCain did during the last presidential election.

Obama has threatened the American people, during his campaign, and during his presidency, verbally attacked us, put us down and put America down. I say it is take no prisoner campaigning that will win and get obama out of office, this election when it starts is no time to be calling the left friend, or going easy on obama on any subject.

It does feel good as we see how Trump completely bypasses Republican candidates, and GOES FOR OBAMA JUGULAR! Listen and learn Repulican candidates. This is political guerrilla warfare and that is what is needed against obama and his agenda.

America's survival is at stake.

Regardless of what one thinks about Trump he's not intimidated and holds no punches back. I wish we would find out just who is and who isn't running.

Trump is willing to do what the RNC doesn't have the guts to do. Yes, trump being a public figure gives him even more effect. I have mixed feelings about The Donald but I sure like his course of action. He is treating this like a no holds barred business deal.
