Democratic Rep Claims Trump Family Is Worse Than Some of the Most Notorious Mobsters


Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen said President Donald Trump and his family make gangsters Al Capone and Frank Nitti look like “good guys.”

“It’s a criminal enterprise that he and his family have been engaged in, to run for president and once they got the presidency they monetized it,” Cohen said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alicia Witt.”

“They’ve done it at the Trump Tower. They’ve done it at the Trump hotels. They’ve done it with the Saudis.”

“This is a criminal enterprise that makes Al Capone and Frank Nitti look like — make them look like they were good guys.”

Cohen also said Trump never would have been elected if he hadn’t paid hush money to Stormy Daniels and suggested the president may have also “paid off Russian hackers” to tip the scales in his favor.

“If he didn’t do what he did, he would not have won the presidency.”

“The hush money to Stormy Daniels, the hush money to Ms. August, whatever he’s — involvements with the Russians and who knows if he paid off Russian hackers,” Cohen continued.

He called Trump a “cancer” and said he’ll end up dragging the entire GOP down with him.

“Republicans will start to see that there is a cancer on the presidency. This man is an albatross and 2020 is coming up and they don’t want to lose their seats and they can do it.”

Do you think the Trump family makes mobsters look like 'good guys?'

“Because all those people who are standing behind Donald Trump, they risk looking like fools and being voted out,” Cohen said.
