Pulitzer Prize winner David Cay Johnston has covered Trump for decades and was recently interviewed about the Trump administration and the current situation Trump finds himself in. Johnston’s recent book is called, “It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America.”
The interview includes Johnston being asked about Trump’s alleged campaign lies and his response is telling. Johnston said,
“In 2012, the bottom 90 percent of Americans reported a smaller income than in 1967. Donald tapped into that problem, but he’s a con artist who promised to drain the swamp and then stocked it with swamp monsters.”
Johnston goes on to explain that there are many connections to the mafia and known criminals throughout Trump’s entire life. Johnston even goes back as far as his grandfather who “made his fortune running whorehouses in Seattle and in the Yukon Territory”, to his father who “had a business partner named Willie Tomasello, who was an associate of the Gambino crime family.”
Trump’s new found claim of being religious is also interesting to Johnston. He said:
“I’ve followed Donald for 30 years. I don’t see any evidence that he has changed, and he certainly hasn’t repented, which is a fundamental Christian obligation. He is a racist through and through.”
Johnston also goes on to say that Trump exhibits clear signs of malignant narcissism and sociopathy. Johnston says out of all the other presidents Trump is the only one who is not concerned with America at all and only focused on himself.
He ended the interview saying “I would say that the evidence we already have, the public materials such as emails for example, strongly indicate that Donald Trump is a traitor.”
Those are strong words from a man who has covered Donald Trump for 30 years.
