Carlyle Group Co-Founder Meeting With Trump

Carlyle co-founder David Rubenstein is meeting with Donald Trump in Mar-a-Lago now, reports Ylan Mui.

This arms profiteer gets in front of every administration.

Don't forget, Carlyle has at various times had as "advisers":

George H. W. Bush

James Baker III

Frank C. Carlucci


John Major

  1. Another Carlyle Meeting:
    From "The Economist":
    On the day Osama bin Laden's men attacked America [9/11], Shafiq bin Laden, described as an estranged brother of the terrorist, was at an investment conference in Washington, DC, along with two people who are close to President George Bush: his father, the first President Bush, and James Baker, the former secretary of state who masterminded the legal campaign that secured Dubya's move to the White House. The conference was hosted by the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm that manages billions of dollars, including, at the time, some bin Laden family wealth.
