Former President Donald Trump has unleashed a flurry of incendiary comments, branding Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt as a “red-haired weirdo” after leaked audio.
The newest drama in the Trump saga has emerged from newly surfaced recordings and documents that shed light on Pratt’s complex relationship with Trump and their confidential conversations.
Pratt’s Major Investment
According to reports by Australia’s Nine newspapers, the New York Times, and the 60 Minutes program, Pratt, a billionaire responsible for the paper and packaging giant Visy, invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in memberships at Trump’s exclusive Mar-a-Lago resort.
Their Close Relationship
This financial involvement significantly contributed to cultivating a close relationship between Pratt and the former President.
The confidential recordings and documents indicate several key insights.
Disclosing a Planned Airstrike
In a private conversation, Pratt claims that Trump disclosed ordering an airstrike on Iranian-linked militants in Iraq before it became public knowledge. Trump further mentioned that Iraq’s president contacted him to express his grievances.
The “Ukraine Phone Call”
Pratt also shared that Trump informed him of a phone call made to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, urging an investigation into Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. Trump nonchalantly remarked, “You know that Ukraine phone call, that was nothing compared to what I usually do.”
Pushing the Limits of Legality
Additionally, Pratt described Trump’s approach as pushing the limits of legality, implying that he knows precisely how to navigate the law without crossing it, giving the impression of wrongdoing.
Pratt claimed that he paid approximately “about a million bucks” to Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to attend his birthday party, although Giuliani ultimately did not attend.
Bribing Prince Charles?
Furthermore, documents cited by the Nine newspapers revealed that Pratt made a payment of $182,000 to Prince Charles in 2021, insinuating that his wealth gave him an audience with the Prince.
Pratt’s intention appeared to be networking with influential individuals. But for what specific purpose?
Paying Prime Ministers of Australia
Pratt also made consulting payments to former Australian prime ministers Tony Abbott and Paul Keating.
No Direct Involvement
However, Pratt did not mention any direct involvement in conversations with Trump regarding the US nuclear submarines.
Trump Claims Fake News Yet Again
In response to these revelations, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to dismiss the reports as “Fake News.” He denied discussing submarines with Pratt but emphasized his focus on job creation, the economy, low taxes, and more.
Despite this recent public fallout, Trump and Pratt enjoyed a positive relationship in the past, with Trump even praising Pratt as one of the most successful men globally during the opening of a Pratt Industries plant in Ohio.
Trump’s Defensive Traits
The former President’s habit of making astonishing remarks when faced with any sort of criticism continues to draw the attention of the world.
Trump’s Audacious Behavior
With Trump’s audacious behavior making headlines once again, one can only wonder what will happen if his current legal challenges do not work out in his favor.
