Trump Alleges Obama Had Crooked Dealings With Chicago Criminal Tony Rezko

The Donald continues to show the kind of fight and courage that is winning him the support of right wingers who were formerly reluctant to back him. Not cowed by the frenetic propaganda campaign of Obama’s Mainstream Media troops, Trump is returning fire with force and accuracy. President Obama “never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko,” said Donald Trump on Fox News. “People should look into that one,” he added. The International Business Times reports-

Trump’s previous point of attack was doubts over Obama’s birthplace. Now, it’s the latter’s long history with Tony Rezko, who Hillary Clinton in 2008 called a “slum landlord.” Rezko is am Illinoisan political fundraiser who was convicted for fraud and bribery in 2008. He was accused of using his political position to extort money from businesses seeking contracts from the Illinois Teachers System Board and the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board.

Back in the 1990s (before Rezko’s offenses took place), two companies owned by Rezko gave the first ever contributions to Obama’s Illinois Senate campaign. In the 2000s, he served on Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign finance committee. In 2005, Rezko’s wife bought a lot adjacent to a house Obama purchased for $625,000 and subsequently sold a part of it [very cheaply] to Obama. The deal generated much controversy back in Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
