Salman Rushdie, author or ‘The Satanic Verses’ book, has become the latest person to criticize US presidential candidate Donald Trump, describing him as a racketeer and a sexual predator. He also spoke about Trump’s rival Hilary Clinton.
Writing on his Facebook page, Rushdie said : “So, to recap. Trump will go on trial in November accused of racketeering, and again in December accused of child rape. He is a sexual predator, hasn’t released his tax returns, and has used his foundation’s money to pay his legal fees.
“He has abused the family of a war hero and… oh, but let’s talk about some emails Hillary didn’t send from someone else’s computer, that weren’t a crime anyway, because that’s how to choose a president. Come on, America. Focus”
The UK daily Metro said Rushdie was referring to the allegation that Trump raped a 13-year-old girl. The first case was dismissed in May 2016 in California and was refiled in New York in June. The case will be subject to a ‘status conference’ in December.
He is also facing racketeering law suits in November (pretty much straight after the election result) in relation to allegations about Trump University.
