Anna Wintour Didn’t Just Invite Celebs to Met Ball: Aussie Billionaire Anthony Pratt Spotted, Trump May Have Shared Nuclear Secrets with Him


Anna Wintour didn’t just invite people like Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Lily Gladstone, and other celebs to the Met Ball.

Spotted on the red carpet tonight: sketchy Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt, BFF of Donald Trump. If you think the Kardashians are bad news, check this guy out.

Pratt is allegedly part of the big Jack Smith case, Trump’s potential next trial. Special prosecutor Smith says that after he left office, Trump discussed military secrets about nuclear submarines with Pratt.

Pratt made his billions as the executive chairman of Visy Asia-Pacific, a packaging and recycling business.

According to The Guardian: New recordings and documents – reported by Australia’s Nine newspapers and 60 Minutes programme as well as the New York Times – have shed extraordinary further light on Pratt’s relationship with Trump and other key global and Australian figures.”

The covert tapes included: Pratt’s claims Trump that had told him in 2019 of ordering an airstrike on Iranian-linked militants in Iraq, before it hit the headlines, and said that Iraq’s president had called him to complain. Pratt says Trump responded: “I [Trump] said to him [Iraq’s leader], ‘OK, what are you going to do about it?’”

Trump responded to these revelations by calling Pratt — who was seen in a pink suit tonight — as a “red haired weirdo.”

The reports suggest Pratt spent hundreds of thousands dollars on memberships at Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago resort, helping him cultivate a close relationship with the president and leading to regular private conversations between the pair.
