I don't know about The Donald but I sure do like his style! Donald Trump attacks Obamaâs dealings with Tony Rezko April 11, 2011 4:07 PM EDT President Obama ânever did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko,â said Donald Trump on Fox News. âPeople should look into that one,â he added. Trump once again went on the offensive against Obama. His previous point of attack was doubts over Obamaâs birthplace. Now, itâs the latterâs long history with Tony Rezko, who Hillary Clinton in 2008 called a âslum landlord.â 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 Rezkoâs 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 Obamaâs U.S. Senate campaign finance committee. In 2005, Rezkoâs wife bought a lot adjacent to a house Obama purchased for $625,000 and subsequently sold a part of it to Obama. The deal generated much controversy back in Obamaâs 2008 presidential campaign. Trump went on to say that the President of the United States needs to be able to âdeal properlyâ â something he said Obama isnât able to do because the latter ânever did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezkoâ before assuming the presidential office in January 2009. Trump criticized Americaâs âdealâ with China, which will have the latter making a â$300 billion profitâ this year. In prior interviews, Trump also criticized Americaâs deal OPEC and blamed it for high oil prices.
