Donny Deutsch Unleashes on Trump: His ’30-Year… Criminal Enterprise’ Will Destroy Him and ‘His Children’


Following the announcement that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump‘s former lawyer, has been sentenced to 36 months behind bars, Donny Deutsch absolutely tore into the commander-in-chief — his one-time pal — on MSNBC Wednesday.

Appearing on Deadline: White House, Deutsch — who made cameos during the first three seasons of The Apprentice — is now claiming that people in their shared New York circles have always pegged Trump as bad news.

“Donald Trump, in the industry of real estate developers — which is a bit of a slimy business to begin with — was known as the bottom, of the bottom, of the bottom of the food chain,” Deutsch said. “I’ve heard story after story. This is a criminal guy.”

Deutsch believes the president’s New York past will eventually catch up with him.

“What is going to put him in jail eventually, what is going to destroy everything he’s ever built and his children, is a 30-year, dishonest, criminal enterprise,” Deutsch said.

He added, “He’s the first guy in our lifetime that tried to undo [democracy], and he’s going to pay for that the rest of his life as they pick apart his criminal enterprise. This is the very, very beginning of the story.”

“Wow,” host Nicolle Wallace said at the close of Deutsch’s fiery remarks.
