MSNBC Host Debunks Odd Claim Of Ties Between Trump And Justice Kennedy’s Son
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle debunked a claim that Justice Anthony Kennedy’s son has financial ties to President Trump on Friday.
President of the Center For American Progress Neera Tanden tweeted:
Just to state this: Justice Kennedy’s son gave a billion dollar loan to Trump when no one would give him a dime, and Justice Kennedy has been ruling in favor of the Trump Administration position for 2 years as the Court decides 5-4 case after 5-4 case.

I worked w/Justin at DB
While he did run a portion of the real estate biz
He was on the institutional side of the bank -NOT private bank
Trump was a private bank client & I believe the lending happened after justin left DB
Trump wanted to borrow from the instit side/they said NO
