Trump Daily 7/16/2020

  • The president took a photograph from The White House promoting Goya foods as their CEO pledged support of Trump. Such a promotion is illegal. The White House and Republicans like Senator Ted Cruz have responded by saying it’s racist to criticize the company.
  • As the White House has tried to distance itself from Peter Navarro’s column attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, the LA Times learned that Trump encouraged him to write it.
  • Last year Eric Trump claimed the Trump organization only charged the government $50 per room when the Secret Service has to stay at Trump businesses. David Farenthold of The Washington Post has so far been unable to find a single instance of that happening. The Trump organization charges the government up to $650 per room when Trump visits his own properties. We don’t know the full amount as Steve Mnuchin has been blocking congress from receiving that information. Trump is the first president who refused to divest from his businesses and frequently spends tax dollars at his hotels.
  • Multiple times now Trump has warned that Biden is going to “abolish the suburbs” with his support of fair housing regulations. What Trump means by this is that black people will live there. Trump is quite familiar with these regulations as he was caught refusing to rent to black families in his own properties – twice.
