Trump acknowledges mistake about which plane had the $400M in cash
Aug 09 2016 by Desiree Burns
Trump has made criticism of the United States delivery of $400 million in cash via a plane to Iran - the first installment of $1.7 billion in payments related to a decades-old dispute settled at the same time Iran released four American prisoners - a staple this week on the campaign trail.
On Tuesday the Wall Street Journal reported that cash had been loaded on wooden pallets and secretly airlifted to Iran in an unmarked cargo plane.
Trump first discussed the video on Wednesday.
"Remember this: Iran - I don't think you heard this anywhere but here", Trump said.
"They have a ideal tape, done by obviously a government camera", he explained, "and the tape is of the people taking the money off the plane, right?" And they want to embarrass our president because we have a president who's incompetent.
"It's a military tape; it's a tape that was a ideal angle, nice and steady, nobody getting nervous because they're gonna be shot because they're shooting a picture of money pouring off a plane". Trump's campaign released a statement Thursday night accusing the administration of a "cover-up" and slamming "Obama's refusal to acknowledge that these funds will end up being used to subsidize terror".
"A tape was made, right, you saw that, with the aeroplane coming in, nice plane", he told an event in Portland. "It's a tape that was a ideal angle, nice and steady, nobody getting nervous because they're gonna be shot because they're shooting a picture of money pouring off a plane".

According to Iran's ABNA news agency, Muslim leaders working in the U.S.as a de facto Fifth Column are hoping to garner another million voter registrations from within the nation's Muslim communities. We announced them to all of you. "And we could not wire the money", he said. "It's only for one reason and it's very, very sad", said Mr Trump.
So, whether or not he has seen it, does any footage of the money transfer exist?
"The realities in the region and the world show a serious uncertainty in the [America's] principles of power and might; therefore, we should understand the realities correctly to prevent wrong analyses", Khamenei said. At the time we explained that Iran had pressed a claim before an worldwide tribunal about them recovering money of theirs that we had frozen, that as a effect of its working its way through the global tribunal, it was the sentiment of our lawyers that there was significant litigation risk and we could end up costing ourselves billions of dollars.
Among them is Donald Trump, who claimed footage shown on Fox News was filmed by the Iranian government and shows the money transfer.
The $400m in cash, he insisted, was part of a $1.7bn settlement, paid on the advice of lawyers who warned that the USA was likely to lose the case and could then be liable for payments running into billions of dollars. "We were completely open about it", Obama said.
