REPORT: Trump Decides Not To Deport Fugitive Chinese Billionaire After Learning He’s A Member At Mar-A-Lago

Raw Story reports:

President Donald Trump was reportedly on the verge of deporting billionaire Chinese fugitive Guo Wengui, but changed his mind after aides informed him that Guo is a fellow billionaire and a member in good standing at the president’s Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago. According to Vanity Fair‘s Isobel Thompson, Guo is wanted on charges of rape, bribery and kidnapping in his native China.

Much like Trump, the international fugitive is a wealthy real-estate developer with a massive Twitter following and an intense interest in building and promoting his personal brand. Longtime Trump friend and casino magnate Steve Wynn delivered Trump a letter from the Chinese government demanding Guo’s extradition. Trump was inclined to take his friend’s advice, in spite of the conflict of interest posed by the fact that Wynn is dependent upon China’s approval to obtain licenses for his casinos in Macau.

The Vanity Fair piece is really something. Breitbart is characterizing Guo as a “dissident.” He is live-streaming on YouTube at this writing.

    Add in a little child rape and you would barely be able to tell them apart.

      Exactly.

      Unlike Hillary and the Clinton Foundation, at least Donald Trump is charging significant amounts of money as bribes for corruption, thus showing respect to America.

  • RobynWatts

    “Trump harbors Chinese fugitive” (An accurate Fox News headline in a world if Trump was a Democrat.)

  • Kruhn

    So my fellow Latinos, let’s become billionaires so we don’t get deported! Come on people, work on your billion dollar scams!

    • Just join Mar-a-trasho and pay him your 200k (the price is probably going up this year!) Do what you like! That money is pure profit for him! We have to pay the police protection in Palm Beach County — it will be over 35 million this season and we do not get one dime back for it!

      • Hank

        Watch YOUR property taxes go up to cover the cost!!!

    • Frostbite

      Right, we only have to claim we are billionaires, just like Trump, it’s not like we have to show our taxes or anything!

      Easy peazy! Start a church!

      • Kruhn

        Iglesia de Dios Fuente de Chupacabras y Ave María, Pastor, Reverend Rafael Cabrero has a nice ring to it.

        Although to be honest, most Latino evangelical churches I’ve seen are hardscrabble operations.

  • There is nothing, literally nothing that Trump and his family cannot do in terms of bilking the public for money that he cannot get away with! When he said he could walk down 5th avenue and shoot someone last year and get away with it he knew what he was talking about. He still has a core following among the Republican faithful, and they simply do not give a damn what he does!

    • Lazycrockett

      His base cares more bout sticking it to their “enemies” than policy, morals or ethics.

      • Joe in PA

        And his base is too stupid to know that they are the ones getting ‘stuck’.

        I hate people. Well, a lot of people.

        • Steverino

          It is a mentality similar to suicide bombing: sure, they know they will destroy themselves in the process, but they take great satisfaction in knowing they will take down their “enemies” as well.

        • Todd20036

          His base is a bunch of people who’d eat shit if Trump told them a liberal would be forced to smell their breath afterwards.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        Some posted here that Trumps cult followers would burn down their own house if it meant their black (or Hispanic or Muslim or “librul”) neighbors might choke on the smoke for 15 minutes.

        • ted-

          They’d likely to die in the process too. That’s a dumb mentality, oh wait…never mind.

    • OdieDenCO

      i still think somewhere in donny’s past is an arrest for attempted homicide/murder, that was quietly brushed under the rug by a huge pile of money. donny says little that does not in someway involve him or something he has done.

        if there was, the NY tabloids would have dug it up years ago.

        Disgusting, but I know you’re right.

  • ETownCanuck

    As if the deciding factor wasn’t the word “Billionaire” rather than “Member”.

    • “Billionaire Member”.

  • Tomcat

    Wanted for rape, bribery and kidnapping.. No wonder Donald likes him.

  • Joe in PA

    They’re sending rapists, murderers ….”

    Oh wait, wrong number of zeroes in their bank accounts.

  • j.martindale

    Well, I would not put it past the Chinese to levy charges like rape and kidnapping to get a political opponent back to their country to punish them. They use fake claims all the time. That said, the fact that tRump’s resort membership is brought into this in any way is repulsive. The man is scum. Republicans have no shame in permitting this blatant illegal, unconstitutional behavior. Disgusting!

  • Tomcat

    Harboring a known criminal,,, isn’t that ENOUGH for impeachment?

    • Friday

      Not of itself, but even the *obvious appearance of* corruption inherent to this would be enough to at least officially censure any Democrat.

      The charges in some cases *could* be obvious bullshit, like the move they’re helping Putin perpetrate via Interpol with his blatantly trumped-up murder charges relating to the Magnitsky affair.

      • Gianni

        Or as some Republican’ts call it: The Ma-gin-sky Act.

    What is Chinese for “Leniency for me, but not for thee”?

      Maybe you will serve on a federal jury and can do something about it.

  • Friday

    They’re obviously trying to keep Mueller busy with too many new crimes to investigate them all.

    Welp, the bar lowers once again……

    “Executed for crimes against the State” looks bad in the member directory.

    • Joe in PA

      LOL, but…this IS Mar-a-Lago remember. 🙂

    • Jonathan Smith

      oh, i don’t know……..
      how’s it look for the club owner?

    • Gianni

      That statement is easily blotted out by the number of zeroes in the Personal Worth column.

    • Halou

      It’ll look good in the Hall of Presidents archive, or whatever it is called where US presidents have their ‘achievements’ listed.

  • DrRobY

    Is this an emoluments clause violation? I am so confused.

    • Jonathan Smith

      then you are not a repupliThug.
      it’s OK if THEY do it…………

  • Bluto

    Perhaps congress can get around to investigating this & a litany of other crimes perpetrated by the current fake regime when they finish Benghazi hearings.

    • Jonathan Smith

      oh, so……. never?

      • Bluto

        ‘zactly.

    So Donnie screwed over a good friend in order to keep a billionaire member of his golf club. I hope all of Donnie’s friends take notice of this…

  • ByronK

    So he came in as a favor to Steve Wynn, Trump wants to deport, but hey, club dues are club dues! Does he get a Medal of Honor from the Banana Republic of Trump too? A complete corrupt joke.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Seems fair. :-/

  • FAEN
  • nice. Steve Wynn is China’s back channel to the White House

    which Bond movie is this now?

  • LesbianTippingHabits


    Wow! An immigrant that liberals, progressives and Democrats want to deport!

    That’s news!

    • Tomcat

      It is the point, not the fact.

    • -M-

      A) Liberals aren’t actually for ‘open borders’, that’s a Republican scare point.

      B) I have no idea whether Guo should or shouldn’t be handed over to China or tossed out of the U.S. and I doubt Trump does either. The point throwing him out because Wynn needs a favor & letting him stay because he’s rich or because he’s paying you are both wrong.

  • Silver Badger

    IOKIYAR

  • Tomcat

    OT: Congress passed sanctions on Russia and now Donald refuses to institute the sanctions. Isn’t that like a president refusing to uphold the laws of the USA?
    And if this was done by a Democrat president, wouldn’t he be impeached?

    • Halou

      Trump was supposed to have taken action on sanctions on October 1st, has yet to do a damned thing. But him having a British citizen’s visa revoked on Putin’s say so… That was near enough immediate.
      Got to get along well with Russia.

  • netxtown

    dammit. i thought i would tiptoe back in here today for a quick look-see….and now i want to run out the door screaming with rage. that mother fucker makes my blood boil much too easily these days…

  • Danieruw

    I wonder how Suckabee Sanders will spin this…

  • Gianni

    Donnie’s personal motto is now out there for all to see: MONEY TALKS AND BULLSHIT WALKS. It holds true for him on any level, personal, political, or international. The siren song of big money is absolutely irresistible to him!

  • Helen Damnation™

    You mean such a fancy, high-falutin’ place like Mara-Lardo doesn’t have any requirements as far as integrity, morals, or a moral-turpitude clause in their application/contract?

    • UrsusArctos 🐻

      Merde-A-Lardo, isn’t it?

  • Tor

    Some things are not adding up. Why on earth would the Chinese government send a letter requesting extradition to Steve Wynn? I smell something, but i’m not sure what it is.

  • fuzzybits
  • leastyebejudged

    Even with all the proof right in front of your faces you still refuse to admit it.

    This country has always been sold to the highest bidder. It’s what it IS.

    END THE USA.

    • Ann Kah

      I want them to have to HIDE it from the voters. I do not wish to live where such a large proportion of the voters actually approve of corruption, with a nod and a wink.

      Bring back political correctness. And bring back a government where scandal is scandalous, not just doing business. With Trump we have had about one thing a day that should have ended his presidency, and the scandals come too thick and fast for any of them to receive the attention they deserve. We (the sane ones) have become numb to the outrages of this government, while his supporters just shrug and think “He may be a lying bastard but he is our lying bastard”.

      • leastyebejudged

        The fact that they don’t even make an effort to hide it, and actually get elected on the things you feel they should hide, is indicative of a need to take another tactic.

  • Leo Tallant

    “rape, bribery and kidnapping” . . . . . all of Drumph’s favorite things!

    • Phil2u

  • Ann Kah

    Money and power are the only virtues. Corruption is just “doing business”, and “pay to play” is the law of the land. Beam me up, Scotty.

  • Marides48

    Charges of rape, bribery & kidnapping?
    It’s OK, he’s not Mexican, is he?

  • pgarayt

    Please take the word, justice, out of the dictionary. Looks like we won’t be using it anymore.

  • Sean

    You hear that undocumented immigrants of color? If you don’t want to be deported all you have to do is become billionaire & pay $200 thousand dollars to become a member at Mar-A-Lago & un-American Nazi Adolf Trump’s Gestapo (aka ICE) won’t deport you even if you are a criminal wanted on charges of rape, bribery, & kidnapping like Trumpflake Guo Wengui here.
