Trump the "Mob Boss"

Mob Boss Trump Just Put Out A Hit On The Whistle Blower, L.A. ...

      Listening to Trump talk at his rally last week about how he told 'his people' to slow down the testing for Covid-19 I couldn't help but remember how Mob bosses talked.  Like so much of how Trump talks and acts it reminds us how comfortable he has been dealing with criminals like the Mafia.
     This is how Michael Cohen describes how Trump operates:

    "Mr. Trump did not directly tell me to lie to Congress. That’s not how he operates. In conversations we had during the campaign, at the same time I was actively negotiating in Russia for him, he would look me in the eye and tell me there’s no business in Russia and then go out and lie to the American people by saying the same thing. In his way, he was telling me to lie."

     The website Vox discussed Trump's longtime connections to the Russian Mob this way:

     "Longtime journalist Craig Unger opens his new book, House of Trump, House of Putin, with this anecdote. The book is an impressive attempt to gather up all the evidence we have of Trump’s numerous connections to the Russian mafia and government and lay it all out in a clear, comprehensive narrative.
The book claims to unpack an “untold story,” but it’s not entirely clear how much of it is new. One of the hardest things to accept about the Trump-Russia saga is how transparent it is. So much of the evidence is hiding in plain sight, and somehow that has made it harder to accept.

But make no mistake: Trump’s ties to shady Russian figures stretch back decades, and Unger diligently pieces them together in one place. Although Unger doesn’t provide any evidence that Trump gave the Russians anything concrete in return for their help, the case he makes for how much potential leverage the Russians had over Trump is pretty damning."
   Finally, Trump has had no trouble dealing with the NYC Mob in getting his buildings built in New York.   Is it any surprise that so many people around Trump have been convicted of a crime and the only thing that may have kept him out of jail is being President.
