President Trump’s Biggest Cover-ups

President Donald Trump recently said he "doesn't do cover-ups." Here are his top five.

5 clear coverups that Donald Trump has participated in.

  1. The cover-up of his (alleged) affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels: A political scandal involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels, Donald Trump, and Trump's private lawyer Michael Cohen. The scandal first broke in January 2018, when The Wall Street Journal revealed that shortly before the 2016 United States presidential election, Daniels had been paid $130,000 for signing a nondisclosure agreement about an affair she had with Trump in 2006.

  2. The hiding of his grades and test scores: As part of his testimony to Congress, Michael Cohen revealed that, under the direction of President Trump, he had sent letters to Trump’s high schools, colleges and the College Board (creator of the SAT), threatening them with legal action and jail time if they ever released Trump’s academic records.

  3. His prolific use of Non-Disclosure Agreements: Donald Trump is not the first executive in politics to use nondisclosure agreements to thwart federal employees from reporting misuses of authority or violations of law. Nondisclosure agreements, often referred to simply as NDAs, are very effective at covering up wrongdoing, even if they are illegal or unenforceable. The overwhelming majority of employees will not challenge restrictive gag orders for fear of being sued or losing their job. Payments of money for silence undermine law enforcement and erode democracy.

  4. Refusing to release his tax returns: Since Trump's election, he has refused requests to release the returns, making him one of the rare presidents in politics during recent times to not reveal their tax returns. Historians say he has been the first major party nominee since 1976 not to make his tax returns public. Several states have proposed bills that would require presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to be listed on the 2020 ballot; such a bill was passed by the California state senate.

  5. The Trump Tower project in Moscow was a series of proposals by the Trump Organization to develop a Trump skyscraper in Moscow, Russia. Michael Cohen testified February 2019 Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump were regularly briefed about a proposed Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump Jr. had told Congress he was only "peripherally aware of it". No such project was ever constructed, but the idea continued to receive press coverage due to Donald Trump's election as president of the United States and the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election aimed at promoting Trump's candidacy. In November 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow in a prosecution brought by the office of the special counsel.

    Hahahahaha, your evidence to support Trump’s so called “cover-up’s”, a convicted liar, giving testimony to congress who went to jail for lying to congress. Americans by and large are smart enough to see through the dem politicians continuous hoaxes who still can’t come to terms with the fact that Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. Get over it. Try doing something, anything for the good of the American people. Dems have accomplished zero, zilch, nothing. How trump has managed to accomplish all he has with the democrats constant petty bickering every step of the way is a true testament to his prowess as a leader. We get it, you hate trump (now that he is president but not before). Suck it up and move on already. Too much time, energy and blood pressure has been wasted on this fruitless fiasco that has done nothing but increase the mistrust Americans have for the federal government as a whole.

    This liar lie about everything. The biggest liar on the planet. He lie so much he lie to himself. He lies so much it has got to the point that he doesn't care who knows he lying and when he lying. 90% of the time I hear him saying anything he lying. This I knows he the biggest liar who ever held the seat in the white house. It call the liars house these days.
