According to an Australian billionaire who became a member of failed former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago golf resort, the disgraced ex-president treated his wife Melania like crap and even suggested she strut around in a bikini so other men could “get a look” at what they were missing.
The New York Times reports that the Australian, Anthony Pratt, owns an international paper and packaging company, has drawn the attention of prosecutors working for Special Counsel Jack Smith because Smith believes Pratt may be able to provide evidence that will lead to Trump being convicted.
The Times, citing a recording of remarks Pratt made to 60 Minutes Australia, reveals that Pratt said, “He knows exactly what to say and what not to say so that he avoids jail, but gets so close to it that it looks to everyone when he’s breaking the law.”
Pratt also explained how Trump wanted to show off Melania:
It has already been reported that Trump also discussed top secret information about the United States nuclear submarine fleet with Pratt, including the exact number of nuclear weapons each sub carries, as well as other details that are clear violations of national security protocol.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Pratt mentioned to Trump that he believed Australia should begin buying its submarines from the United States, which reportedly led the ex-president to divulge to vital piece of classified information: The number of warheads each U.S. sub carries and how close they can get to their Russian counterparts without being detected.
Additionally, Smith has evidence that Trump allegedly took and then stored classified information at Mar-a-Lago. That material was not kept in a secure location, with some of it reportedly being kept in banker’s boxes at unsecured rooms such as restrooms at the former president’s Palm Beach golf resort.
Asked for comment on the report from the Times, a spokesperson for Trump said the recordings came from “sources which totally lack proper context and relevant information.” However, the spokesperson did not deny the validity of the facts themselves.
