THE WHITE HOUSE – (AUDIO: Trump riffs on disgraceful democrats saying, “They could look into the book deal that President Obama made.

President Donald Trump suggested today that he might look into the book deals that President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, made and subpoena all of the records having to do with Hillary Clinton.
As has been widely reported, the Obamas signed a lucrative book deal with Penguin Random House in 2017, a month after they left office. Penguin acquired the world-wide rights to the books.
