Trump the phone guy is back

The way reporter Brian Spegele tells it, he and his Wall Street Journal colleague, Craig Karmin, had been working on their story about the Trump Organization’s ties to a major real-estate investment firm for several weeks when he got a call on Monday from an unknown number. “It was Donald Trump,” Spegele tweeted, “and he had a few things to say about our reporting.”

Never mind that the ex-president was calling on the eve of his second impeachment trial; he apparently had other things on his mind.

“Vornado has been an excellent partner so far and we expect that to continue,” Trump said of the firm that Spegele and Karmin were looking into, which is reportedly exploring the option to buy out the Trump Organization’s stake in two properties the companies co-own, perhaps in part to distance themselves from the radioactive leader.
