Via International Business Times:
President Obama “never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko,” said Donald Trump on Fox News.The retrial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is scheduled for April 20th. The timing and choice of Trump's attack on the Obama / Rezko relationship is interesting because Rezko's testimony had been eagerly anticipated by many who followed the first trial. Rezko never did testify but highlighting his name at this point should at least add to the discussion of that possibility in the retrial.
“People should look into that one,” he added.
In 2005, Rezko’s 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 Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Trump went on to say that the President of the United States needs to be able to “deal properly” – something he said Obama isn’t able to do because the latter “never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko” before assuming the presidential office in January 2009.
