In a fiery post on his social media platform Truth Social, former President Donald Trump vigorously denied allegations made by Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt that he shared sensitive state secrets. Trump referred to the story as “Fake News” and accused the New York Times of publishing it with the intention of smearing his name. With his characteristic wit and charm, Trump wrote, “The failing New York Times story, leaked by Deranged Jack Smith and the Biden ‘Political Opponent Abuser’ DOJ, about a red-haired weirdo from Australia, named Anthony Pratt, is Fake News.” Despite the allegations, Trump admitted to speaking with Pratt about job creation in Ohio and Pennsylvania but staunchly denied discussing submarines.
While Pratt has faced questioning from special counsel Jack Smith in one of the federal investigations against Trump, the former president seems undeterred and confident in his innocence. Smith has charged Trump with allegedly taking classified documents from the White House after leaving office and obstructing efforts to retrieve them. According to sources, Trump purportedly revealed classified information to Pratt in late 2019, including details about bombing Iraq and U.S. submarine capabilities. However, Trump has vehemently denied ever having such conversations.
As the legal battle continues to unfold, Trump’s confident and defiant tone in his recent statement suggests that he is prepared to fight against these allegations. This latest development sheds light on the potential national security discussions Trump may have had with various individuals, showcasing the complexity of the legal case against him. As the 2024 GOP front-runner, Trump’s ability to address these accusations head-on will undoubtedly impact his political future. Conservative readers may find solace in his unwavering denial and resistance, viewing this as another attempt by the “Fake News” media to undermine the former president.
