Once Murrow confronted US Senator McCarthy, he was also battling with Roy Cohn, who later taught POTUS the same tricks Cohn used his mob connections to smooth Trump’s relations with construction unions and inked a stingy prenuptial agreement with Trump’s first wife, Ivana as well as leaned on city politicians to favor Trump deals for Atlantic City favors.
