Another revelation from Maggie Habermann’s new book came from the mouth of Donald Trump himself, when he admitted that his favorite part about being president was making a bunch of rich friends that nobody knows about. He then refused to say whether or not he was still in regular contact with Kim Jong Un – someone who Trump praised for having "beautiful real estate" in North Korea. This statement from Trump exposes the entire con of his presidency, as Farron Cousins explains.

Well folks we have yet another revelation from Maggie Haman’s new book. This one, of course not about potential crimes committed by Donald Trump, but just really a very clear look at how Donald Trump used the office of the presidency for his own personal financial gain. According to an excerpt posted in the Atlantic this past weekend, Trump told Haberman quote, the question I get asked more than any other question. If you had to do it again, would you have done it? The answer is, yeah, I think so, because here’s the way I look at it. I have so many rich friends and nobody knows who they are.
What like, would I, would I do the presidency all over again? Yeah, I would. You wouldn’t even believe how many rich people I’ve met all over the world and y’all don’t even know who they are. Right? You got these secret millionaires and billionaires all over the place. We’re talking business deals, doing all kinds of crazy shenanigans and y’all have no clue. You bunch of morons. That’s kind of given up the game, right? That that’s admitting like, boy, I screwed. Y’all good. Use that office to make sure I had business connections all over the planet. And of course we’ve seen this, right? We’ve seen it with Jared Kushner. You get the billions of dollars from some of the worst human rights abusers ever to exist in the middle east. And apparently Donald Trump did the same thing. And here’s, what’s interesting because once again, it comes back to Kim Jong gun because after Donald Trump made that statement, you a little bit after Haberman asked him like, Hey, do, do you still talk to any of the old gang?
You know, you’re talking to Putin. He’s like, no, no, no. I’m not talking to Putin. You talking to Kim Jong UN. And then, um, he said, well, I, I don’t know. I, I don’t want to say exactly, but, and then he trailed off. So he is like, hell no, I’m not talking to Putin anymore. Guys’ got enough problems over there as it is. He’s losing a war. Okay. Well, do you talk to Kim Jong UN ah, man. Yeah. I just, uh, oh God, uh it’s. What’s like this weather, right? crazy. I mean, could you be more obvious that clearly you are still talking to Kim Jong UN, like my God, you’re like a fifth grader trying to get outta trouble when your parents know exactly what you did and they’re asking you the right questions. And you’re just kind of, well, I don’t know, ask maybe, uh, maybe, maybe we send each other messages on Facebook. Nah, you’re still talking to Kim Jong UN is what I’m gathering out of that statement. And it makes perfect sense. Right? Donald Trump talking about I’ve made a lot of rich friends. Well, Kim Jong UN controls all of North Korea, I’d say the guy’s got some money out there. There’s great business opportunities. Well, Donald Trump
Specifically said after his meetings with Kim Jong UN, that there’s a lot of real estate potential here. Lot of waterfront property, because it was clear from the beginning back then. And I even said this in segments back then Donald Trump went over there to basically broker real estate deals for when he is out of office. Like we could end up with Trump tower pong yang because oh, it’s beautiful over. like, who is going to be able to go there? You numb nuts. like, you’re gonna build real estate. You’re gonna hype up real estate in an area where most of the world’s literally not even allowed to travel. Like even people that live there probably wouldn’t even have the resources to go there. So I don’t think Trump has thought it through, but he did get to meet a lot of other rich people too, that are now his friends.
So who knows where we’re gonna end up with Trump towers, maybe one in Saudi Arabia, maybe North Korea, maybe Moscow. I’m sure folks are gonna be lining up just to get on their planes to go visit these Trump towers in all of these horrible countries that are abusing human rights out there in the open and you know, leaving their people destitute with no other options, right? That’s what Donald Trump wanted.
