2016: Trump Jr. Met With Arab Envoys; Trump Slams NY Times Over Report

President Donald Trump is evidently a disquieted man over recent revelation that his son, Donald Trump Jr. met with an emissary representing two Middle Eastern princes who offered Trump illegal assistance in winning the 2016 election.

Reported the story, The New York Times wrote :

Three months before the 2016 election, a small group gathered at Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son. One was an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation.

Another was an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes. The third was a Republican donor with a controversial past in the Middle East as a private security contractor.

Erik Prince, the private security contractor and the former head of Blackwater, arranged the meeting, which took place on Aug. 3, 2016.

The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the crown princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president.

The social media specialist, Joel Zamel, extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign; by that time, the firm had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump.

Donald Trump Jr.

New York Times, therefore, called for the special counsel’s Russia probe to “STOP!”

The meeting shows that the Trump campaign was open for business. It wasn’t just Russia that was interested in interfering in the US presidential election.

What the Middle Eastern princes want is to guide US policy in their region. They also represent nations that are enemies of Iran.

Since winning the election, Trump’s White House orbit has taken money from these Middle Eastern nations and the US has pulled out the Iran nuclear deal, and hinted that military action against Iran is possible.

There were more nations involved in illegally funneling gifts and money to the Trump campaign than Russia.

Word got out very quickly that Trump was open for business, and US foreign policy was for sale.

Reacting, some U.S. media suggested that this is criminal corruption on a level, both foreign and domestic, that the United States has never seen before.

They, therefore, concluded that Trump and his entire family have engaged in illegal activity, and suggested that their next stop should be a federal supermax prison.

TRUMP SLAMS NY TIMES REPORT ABOUT ANOTHER TRUMP JR. MEETING

Reacting to the allegation though, President Trump in a series of tweets on Sunday called New York Times names as “Failing and Crooked”.

He blasted the media firm over the report that  his son, Trump Jr. met three months before the election with an emissary from two Arab princes

He tweeted:

The newspaper reported that Trump’s oldest son met at the Trump Tower in August 2016 with George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman.

Nader claimed he was representing the crown princes of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and that they wanted to help his father win the election.

Joel Zamel, an Israeli political strategist, also attended the meeting and talked about how his company could benefit the campaign.

The sitdown was reportedly arranged by Erik Prince, a private military contractor and brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

A lawyer for Donald Jr. told the newspaper the meeting was about a marketing pitch that his client rejected.

Trump’s son and campaign officials – including Jared Kushner and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort – met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton at the Trump Tower in June 2016.

In another Tweet, the president continued to lash out at special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the election and any collusion on the part of Trump’s campaign associates, calling it a “Witch Hunt.”

“Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam,” he concluded.

Mueller, a Republican, was appointed to head the FBI by President George W. Bush in 2001, and was named as special counsel in May 2017 by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Trump appointee.
