Government Awards Trump’s Brother’s Company $33 Million Contract

Robert Trump, Donald Trump’s little-noticed brother, received a gift from his older brother last week after a company that he has a financial stake in was awarded a $33 million federal contract to provide security at courthouses. Typically, this job has been done by local police officers or federal agents, but this will now be outsourced to enrich the Trump family. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the Trump
family tree, as I apparently was not Donald Trump actually hasn’t brother. He
has a brother by the name of Robert Trump. And Robert Trump, uh, is the
president of a group called Trump management, which is also listed on Donald
Trump’s financial disclosure form. Now the reason that is important, even
though it’s not technically part of this story, is that it shows that the
president and his brother Robert Trump are in business together. And Robert
Trump is also a heavy investor in a company called Serta path. Now, Serita path
provides private security for federal courthouses in the United States. And
recently the Trump administration awarded Serita path. And by extension, Robert
Trump, a $33 million federal contract to provide security services at
courthouses. $33 million from Donald Trump’s administration to Robert Trump’s
company.

And now there are at least two different lawsuits against
the federal government for enriching the Trump family by giving this $33
million contract to little Robbie Trump from Donnie Trump. So here’s the thing,
folks. Typically here in the United States, in terms of security at
courthouses, that role is fulfilled by local police officers or us marshals or
in some bigger case with higher profile clients by groups like the FBI, they
will go in and provide security. But the Trump administration wants to change
all that. Let’s prioritize everything. Republicans tell us, privatized,
privatized, privatized, uh, private sector can do it much better than the
federal government ever could, which is the biggest lie the Republicans have
ever sold the country other than trickle-down economics. But this story is
obviously particularly disgusting because this administration came from the
Trump administration or this contract, excuse me, came from the Trump
administration and it’s going straight to Trump’s brother.

He may not be the president of that company. He may not be
the owner of that company. But as an investor, he gets a share of that $33
million. And as I mentioned at the beginning, considering the fact that he is
the president of Trump management company, which is a company that Donald Trump
also profits from, these two are in cahoots. So I’m glad that other bitters on
this project are suing the federal government over this. This is the kind of
thing that needs to be fleshed out a little bit more, right? We need to
understand why the president’s brother is going to be receiving millions of
dollars to provide security at courthouses across the United States. And
hopefully during this process, we’ll also find out why we’re starting to
prioritize security at courthouses all across this United States. That’s not
something that needed to be done. It’s not something that was a problem the way
it had been running, but instead, like so many other issues, we’re going to go
with a private company. We are going to pay a heck of a lot more money. And in
this particular instance, that money is going to go to the president’s little
brother.
