The floodgates have opened. Earlier this week, the Philadelphia Inquirer released a photograph of former President Donald Trump posing with ex-Philadelphia mob boss Joseph Merlino. Now, another photo of Trump with a rather notorious crime figure has resurfaced.
This time, Trump is all smiles as and gives a thumbs up as he stands next to Gambino crime family associate-turned-snitch John Alite. The two men standing together raise many of the same questions we asked when we saw former Mafia boss Joey Merlino standing next to Trump. Especially regarding national security.
It also adds another one: Would Trump still raise his thumb and flash a smile if he knew Alite was a rat? A person who “flipped”. Something that Trump himself admitted he absolutely hates.
Hell, who knows. Trump takes pictures with anyone who wants to. He craves the attention and can’t get enough. The photo with Alite was posted on Alite’s personal Facebook page in November of 2022. Between then and the Merlino pic, Trump was probably surrounded by at least one other mobster, a dozen Russian and Chinese spies, and perhaps a serial killer?
All we can say is: Stay tuned.
