Another batch of Trump news

Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of “sleeping” when the U.S. consulate in Benghazi came under terrorist attack. I don’t think she can be everywhere. It seems that all the Republicans can go after Clinton is for this and her Email server. A broken record.
Trump also hammered Clinton over foreign policy decisions that he himself also supported, including the decisions to invade Iraq in 2003 and to launch military strikes in Libya in 2011.
Clinton “should not be allowed to run” because of her controversial use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state, which Trump said amounted to a breach of “federal law.” Which federal law? If she broke a law, wouldn’t she be charged by now? Just more made-up rambling by him. He’s creating laws as he goes.
The de facto GOP nominee also hit Clinton on domestic policy, accusing Clinton hyperbolically of wanting to “ship all of our jobs overseas” and of wanting to “abolish the Second Amendment.” And yet he can’t explain where these came from.
“Hillary is not a talented person. In fact she is a person with no actual talent. All you have to do is watch her speak,” Trump said. And he continues to make up things and insult fellow Americans.
Trump did not once mention Trump University a day after the university scandal came out or push back against her claims, including her accusation that the since-defunct university is “more evidence that Donald Trump himself is a fraud.”
But “He`s not treating me fair,” he said of Judge Gonzalo Curiel. “He`s not treating me fairly.” Huh? The court date hasn’t started and I haven’t heard the judge say anything about him.
Following his attacks on the judge, he said that even a Muslim judge would be biased against him. What about a black judge? Asian judge? Jewish judge? Atheist judge?
Recently Trump charged Clinton was misrepresenting his position by saying he wants nuclear arms for Japan — but the presumptive Republican nominee previously has said exactly that. But in an April interview on Fox News, Trump said, “It’s not like, gee whiz, nobody has them. So, North Korea has nukes. Japan has a problem with that. I mean, they have a big problem with that. Maybe they would in fact be better off if they defend themselves from North Korea.” Fox interviewer asked, “With nukes?” “Including with nukes, yes, including with nukes,” Trump responded.
When asked recently on CNN to explain why the Latino judge in his Trump University lawsuit recuse himself because of his ethnicity the definition of racism, Trump ignored the question. When the question was repeated a further 23 [!!!] times throughout the interview he still deflected the question. I guess Trump doesn’t admit he made a mistake because race shouldn’t be a factor. If at the lawsuit, Trumps lawyers can prove he isn’t unbiased [or an actual real conflict of interest] then he has something.
According to Trump’s lawyers, his comments since storming the race have increased business for his hotels and the restaurants located in them. But his lawyers said this in a new court filing in his fight with Washington celebrity chef Jose Andres and Chef Geoffrey Zakarian who he is suing for $10 million because they announced last summer they were canceling plans for restaurants in Trump’s redevelopment of the Old Post Office Pavilion building in Washington.
Andres’ lawyers filed a law suit against Trump seeking $8 million says his comments about Mexicans and other comments and others would be enough to drop business at least 12% based on estimates of people who would not want to dine at a Trump property. I guess each will have to provide proof of their surveys.
