Naji’s White House Visit: “Trump called me ‘friend’.”

16 September 2017

Lim Kit Siang for Malaysia

Will Najib sue former World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and Newsweek for calling him a “crook”?

Will the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak sue the former World Bank President Paul Wolfowitze and American news magazine Newsweek for defamation for calling him a “crook”?

This is the first time that a Malaysian Prime Minister in 60 years has been publicly called a “crook” by an international personality like the former World Bank President and an international news magazine.

Is Najib going to keep quiet and submit to such public defamation or is he going to defend his personal honour and the nation’s dignity by taking legal action to sue Wolfowitz and Newsweek magazine for calling him a “crook”?

Malaysians can still remember that it is more than two years ago that Najib had threatened to sue Wall Street Journal in July 2015 for implicating him in the 1MDB and RM2.6 billion donation twin mega scandals, but nothing has come out of it.

Similarly, can Najib be believed if he now indulges in saber-rattling warning that he would sue Paul Wolfowitze and Newsweek without coming through with any defamation proceedings?

In the last two years, Najib has acquired the epithets of kleptocrat, “MO1” and now “crook”.

If these epithets are flung at Najib because of his personal activities, it is Najib’s personal matter. But when it is hurled against Najib because of his capacity as Prime Minister of Malaysia, it is not Najib’s personal matter but a national issue of great importance. Is he going to take all these infamy and ignominy with a grin without any legal action to establish his integrity and incorruptibility as Prime Minister of Malaysia?

PM: Trump called me ‘friend’, gave a personal send-off

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said US President Donald Trump was so honoured to host the Malaysian delegation at the White House on Tuesday that the latter personally saw them off.

Recalling the end of his meeting at the White House Cabinet Room, Najib said one of Trump’s aides had wanted to arrange a handshake photo-op outside the president’s office.

“Trump said ‘No, I want to send him to the car.’

“The officer then said, ‘But sir, the car is right down at the basement.’

“What did Trump say? He said ‘never mind, he is my friend’,” Najib told some 1,000 supporters at the Bunga Raya Complex, next to KLIA, tonight.

He said this was a sign of respect, even though his critics mocked his US visit.

Washington insider: Malaysia likely paid for access to Trump

September 15, 2017

The Malaysian government has paid lavishly in the past for Washington ‘swamp dwellers’ to purchase influence and disparage its opponents and critics says Paul Wolfowitz, former US deputy secretary of defence.
.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is known to pay money to enable meetings with US presidents, a Washington insider says in reference to the meeting between Prime Minister Najib Razak and US President Donald Trump.

Paul Wolfowitz, a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute who served seven US administrations, suggests that the meeting was arranged by a former Trump aide.

In an opinion piece carried by Newsweek, Wolfowitz, who once served as US deputy secretary of defence, cites several instances of Malaysia or Malaysians paying for the attention of US presidents in the past.

He said: “In May, a former Trump campaign aide – Healy E Baumgardner-Nardone of the ‘45 Group’ – registered as a foreign agent to represent the Office of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. She reported receiving US$250,000 for her services.

“The Malaysian government has paid lavishly in the past for Washington ‘swamp dwellers’ to purchase influence and disparage its opponents and critics.”

During president Barack Obama’s second term, he says, Malaysians “rewarded a major Democratic Party fundraiser handsomely for representing them, just before Najib secured an Obama state visit to Malaysia (the first by a US president in 60 years), and then received an even more unprecedented invitation from Obama to join him in Hawaii for a game of golf.”
.
During Obama’s first term, he says, the Najib government “paid millions to APCO Worldwide of Washington, a portion of which went to the London-based ‘Fact Based Communications, Ltd’ to hire an individual named Josh Trevino, to organise a network of bloggers to write blog posts disparaging opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim – whose coalition was growing in strength heading into the 2013 elections.

“That game blew up when Trevino was fired by The Guardian of London for failing to disclose that he was on the Malaysian payroll while writing a supposedly independent column. That forced Trevino to file a belated foreign agent registration exposing the whole scheme.”
.
He says Trump should have given a diplomatic excuse not to meet Najib, as doing so would have sent a strong signal to other lobbyists attempting to “sell access” to the US president.

Wolfowitz adds, having failed to do that, at a minimum Trump should find out who was responsible for inviting Najib to the White House. “And if they did not properly inform him of the scandal surrounding Najib, someone needs to be disciplined.”

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s penchant for golfing appears to have won him another ally in the White House.

The BBC reported that president elect Donald Trump is the Malaysian leader’s “golfing buddy”.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister’s Office told the BBC that Najib has a signed photograph of Trump and himself on his desk.

Trump inscribed the photograph “To my favourite PM”, stated BBC in its live coverage of the presidential election.

Prior to this, Najib had teed off with Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama in Hawaii.

Met at the sidelines of an event in Kuala Lumpur after the results were announced, Najib said he has a personal relationship with Trump.

“I know him personally, he is not a stranger to me,” he told reporters.
