When you consider all of the money Trump is making by charging people to meet him at Mar-a-Lago, this is even more disturbing.
Sekulow has written many books, including a #1 New York Times bestselling book called Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can't Ignore, about the beginnings of ISIS, their strategies and plans. "#MAGA." Trump said in a tweet last week that signified an attempt to undermine both men.
An attorney with Trump's private legal team, Jay Sekulow, asserted on four Sunday TV talk shows that the president's Friday tweet was not confirmation that he was under investigation.

Earler this month, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Trump's tweets were official statements and that "the President is the most effective messenger on his agenda".
When Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, and any related matters that may spring from that, Trump was then technically under investigation, being the "Trump" in the Trump campaign.
