Donald Trump revelation: POTUS says he had Mar-a-Lago 'fumigated' after Roy Cohn's visit
The United States President Donald Trump is someone who is currently under heavy scrutiny. As if his impeachment trial and his current statements towards many figures is not enough, he recently stated that he had his Florida resort fumigated after it was visited by Republican fixer Roy Cohn.
Trump’s past scandals and statements have come to light, especially during his candidacy and his run as President. But, a book called The Fixers sheds some more light on the President’s past regarding his relationship with Republican Fixer Roy Cohn. Cohn was Trump’s lawyer and political mentor when he first tried to run for President before, and while he was a known homophobic, it was believed that he was also a gay man. Cohn passed away at 49 years old in 1986 due to AIDS-related complications.
Since Cohn contracted the disease, Trump was said to have “distanced himself” from him at the time. But in Cohn’s final hours, he was invited to dinner at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. The book continues to claim that Trump would recall that dinner in 2016 and that the president jokingly stated that he had to have all the dishes and silverware at Mar-a-Lago fumigated, and he had to spend a fortune in doing so.
Cohn had a hand in manipulating the media and the legal system to Trump’s advantage in the business aspect, according to Joe Palazzolo and Michael Rothfield, who were the authors of the book. Palazzolo and Rothfield also said that Trump’s view of the media and celebrities were shaped by Cohn as well as the people who succeeded him.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail reports that the White House announced some House Republicans would be on the President’s Senate impeachment team. These members will not be speaking on the floor, but they will serve as surrogates and outside advisers on behalf of the President. They have also been meeting with Trump’s lawyers to lend a hand in preparing floor arguments.
This announcement follows the reports of talks of having House members on the team to help advise the Republican senators on questions to ask Chief Justice John Roberts.
