๐Ÿšจ If you are Hispanic and are planning on voting for Trump, please read this short thread.

๐Ÿ“• Excerpt from Michael Cohenโ€™s book โ€œDisloyal, a memoirโ€:

In August 2015, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos tried to ask Trump a question and this happened.

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ "Go back to Univision!" Trump shouted. Then Trump got his bodyguard Keith Schiller to throw Ramos out.

๐Ÿ“• Excerpt from Cohen book

Calls of protest from Univision executives began to flow in to myself and Larry Glick, who ran the golf operation.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

Hispanic executives were dismayed and disgusted by Trump's comments and his ongoing assaults on Jorge Ramos, which perfectly combined his disdain for the media and Spanish-speaking people.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

As it continued to get worse, I finally decided I really did need to talk to Trump and try to get him to ease up and not permanently and perhaps fatally harm his company over a candidacy that looked not just doomed but delusional.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

"I don't care," Trump said, when I told him how concerned for the business his children were about all the cancellations. "Let them cancel the events. This is more important than all the events."
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

I was stunned. Something was more important than money? Since when? Maybe he really was ready to make a commitment to running for president, regardless of the consequences?
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

"Plus, I will never get the Hispanic vote," Trump said. "Like the blacks, they're too stupid to vote for Trump. They're not my people."

END of passage.
Later, Trump agreed to meet with Javier Palomarez, head of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce with zero preparation. He bullsh*t his way through the meeting.

๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

"What a phony bullshit artist," he said.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

"He and the whole Hispanic Chamber of Commerce thing is a fucking scam. Like Al Sharpton's bullshit group. Who knows, who cares. No matter what, I'm not doing his fucking town hall.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

...And did you hear in the middle when I asked him how the organizations supports itself? Through donations and dues and advertising, he said. He was looking for me to become one of his suckers. Fuck him. I don't regret what I said about Mexicans.
๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

...What I said [at Trump's announcement to run for president] was fucking true."

๐Ÿšจ Laterโ€”

๐Ÿ“• Cohen book (cont'd)

"Did you see the amount of press we got for meeting with the guy?" Trump said. "Not bad."

Every one of the 52 Senators who voted to acquit Trump aided and abetted a criminal.

Therefore, all 52 are criminals.

They donโ€™t keep their word.

You canโ€™t believe what they say.

You canโ€™t count on them to do anything but Trumpโ€™s bidding.
Even if it takes years, we must work to get all 52 out of Congress.

All 52 must be punished for their crimes.

But for now, letโ€™s get the ones who are up for re-election in 2020.

Six years is a long time. Letโ€™s work hard to make sure they all lose.

๐Ÿ“™ Excerpt from Michael Cohenโ€™s book โ€œDisloyal, a memoirโ€:

RE: the lawsuits against the now-defunct Trump University that Trump ended up paying $25 million for in January of 2017.

George Sorial [EVP & legal counsel, Trump Org] was in charge of dealing w/ the many formal complaints from students & regulators, including negotiations with TX that promised to be resolved with a mutually agreed settlement to cover the most egregious legal violations of Trump U.

"We should be able to close out the entire matter with a settlement of $500,000," George told Trump during a conference in the Boss's office.

"What?" Trump said. "I don't settle. We did nothing wrong.

Trump went ballistic, as if the universe were playing some kind of trick on him to drive him out of his mind. It was almost like he was hearing voices, the way he ranted and raved about the idiotic Obama and how he was beloved by so many Americans.
