Right. I believe Arthur Finkelstein was pulling the strings on Trump’s campaign behind the scenes while living in Budapest, Hungary.
Now, this is a speech Finkelstein gave in Prague in 2011. The video starts at 24:56. Listen until the 26:20 mark.
Got it? Finkelstein was watching Trump play the media.
It's not a huge surprise. They’d known each other by decades by that point, but Finkelstein mentioned the importance of personality there.
This section starts at 36:38. Listen until 37:08.
Speaking there, Arthur only mentioned a “very, very wealthy guy” he advised.
Arthur continued, saying he advised this man, “He shouldn’t run for some office because he didn’t look like a president.”
Notice the slip? “Some office” became “a president”.
"He's a good guy," Arthur said.
Is that so? Maybe he was an old friend.
Here’s what I find most interesting.
Arthur’s speech in Prague happened on May 16, 2011.
Guess what else happened that exact same day? This announcement right here.
