Donald Trump is once again under the spotlight over allegations of discussing sensitive information about U.S. nuclear submarines with an Australian billionaire, Anthony Pratt, at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Here’s the full story
The information came to light through an ABC report, citing sources familiar with the matter.
According to these sources, Anthony Pratt, who had close ties with Trump during his presidency, was interviewed by the special counsel investigating Trump’s retention of sensitive documents after leaving office.
Trump Shared Sensitive Information
Pratt is also reportedly on the list of potential witnesses for the upcoming trial.
During this meeting at Mar-a-Lago, Trump allegedly shared sensitive information with Pratt, who is not a U.S. citizen.
The Secret Was Shared
Pratt then went on to discuss this information with “more than a dozen foreign officials, several of his own employees, and a handful of journalists.”
National Security Details
This revelation has led to questions about the appropriateness of sharing sensitive national security details with individuals who are not bound by U.S. citizenship or security clearances.
While these allegations have not been included in the indictment brought forth by special counsel Jack Smith, they have not been investigated by Smith’s team.
This suggests that the potential breach of national security is being taken seriously by the authorities.
Lacks Proper Context
In response to the ABC report, a spokesperson for Donald Trump criticized the claims, saying that they “lack proper context and relevant information.”
The spokesperson also called for the Department of Justice to investigate the alleged leaking of information, framing the allegations as baseless and politically motivated.
Trump himself took to his Truth Social platform to vehemently deny the allegations.
He described the story as “false and ridiculous” and suggested that it was part of a broader attempt by “corrupt prosecutors” to interfere with the 2024 Presidential Election.
Trump wrote, “The ridiculous story put out today about me talking to a Mar-a-Lago member about U.S. Submarines, is false and ridiculous, other than the fact that I will often state that we make the best Submarines and Military Equipment anywhere in the World — A pretty well-known fact!”
Presidential Election Interference
“These fake stories are put out by corrupt prosecutors trying to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024, and based on the polling, where I am 60 points up on Republican Candidates, and 11 points up on Crooked Joe Biden, the people of our Country aren’t buying it. With that being said, I will always promote the Greatness of America — and its Military Equipment,” he added.
Successful Achievements as President
“The alternative would be for Allies, and others, to buy from Russia, China, or elsewhere. I like creating jobs in America, which was one of my most successful achievements as President!” he concluded.
Twitter Users Expressed Their Views
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “A career criminal continues to commit crimes and not one person has kneeled on his neck. There are a lot of lies happening every day.”
Trump Is a Traitor
Another user added, “He’s a traitor and a disgrace. He needs to be locked away for good.”
Sick of Hearing This
A third user commented, “How sick and tired are we of hearing how criminal he is? Very. Not surprised he shared the top secret docs with outsiders.”
A fourth user wrote, “Fascinating that people will still vote for a guy like this. Can you imagine? A liar, insurrectionist fraud like him actually has a shot to be president. Unreal.”
