Yesterday, in their never-ending efforts to destroy a sitting President, the radical New York Times published an article by their finance editor, David Enrich, who is no stranger to attacking President Trump. The article cited anonymous sources who, according to Enrich, were employees of Deutsche Bank, that flagged possible suspicious transactions related to Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Only three weeks ago, Enrich wrote a scathing article about President Trump’s “enormous losses” that appeared on his tax returns.
Year after year, @realDonaldTrump racked up such enormous losses that he was at the top of the IRS’s list of the country’s biggest losers (not to mention the fact that he paid no taxes).

Enrich retweeted a story about undocumented workers who weren’t receiving overtime on a Trump golf course in NY.

Enrich also retweeted this comment about how surely Trump supporters are smarter than to believe there was “no collusion” and “no obstruction”

This morning, in a series of tweets, President Trump responded to the hit piece by the anti-Trump New York Times writer, David Enrich, calling the New York Times the “Fake News Media,” accusing them of “writing phony stories” and using non-existent sources for their story. In his tweets, Trump claims the NYT’s falsely wrote about how he didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with him. Trump clapped back at them, saying “WRONG!”, explaining that the news story should be about how he didn’t need money from banks: “Trump made a lot of money and buys everything for cash, he doesn’t need banks.”
The Failing New York Times (it will pass away when I leave office in 6 years), and others of the Fake News Media, keep writing phony stories about how I didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with me. WRONG! It is because I didn’t need money. Very old
….fashioned, but true. When you don’t need or want money, you don’t need or want banks. Banks have always been available to me, they want to make money. Fake Media only says this to disparage, and always uses unnamed sources (because their sources don’t even exist)……
The Mainstream Media has never been as corrupt and deranged as it is today. FAKE NEWS is actually the biggest story of all and is the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! That’s why they refuse to cover the REAL Russia Hoax. But the American people are wise to what is going on…..
….Now the new big story is that Trump made a lot of money and buys everything for cash, he doesn’t need banks. But where did he get all of that cash? Could it be Russia? No, I built a great business and don’t need banks, but if I did they would be there…and DeutscheBank……
…..was very good and highly professional to deal with – and if for any reason I didn’t like them, I would have gone elsewhere….there was always plenty of money around and banks to choose from. They would be very happy to take my money. Fake News!
The anti-Trump New York Times finance editor responded to Trump’s tweets, calling them “not true.”
The Hill wrote about the New York Times hit piece on Trump – The Sunday report said the bank’s anti-money laundering personnel identified several transactions they deemed suspicious involving entities owned by Trump and Kushner, many of them tied to Trump’s now-dissolved charitable foundation. Despite employees’ recommendations, the reports were never filed with the Treasury Department. Certain large transactions, such as those involved in real estate development, are often big enough to automatically trigger review procedures without any actual wrongdoing. It was not clear what the transactions involved, according to the Times, but some of them involved funds transfers between the Trump- and Kushner-controlled entities and foreign individuals or organizations.
“At no time was an investigator prevented from escalating activity identified as potentially suspicious,” Deutsche Bank spokeswoman Kerrie McHugh told The Hill on Sunday. “Furthermore, the suggestion that anyone was reassigned or fired in an effort to quash concerns relating to any client is categorically false.”
