Trump says Scalia may have been murdered

A conspiracy theory claiming that Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia’s death was not of natural causes, but rather murder, has recently surfaced. Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has not confirmed he believes the conspiracy; however, he did state that he believes it is very much a possibility. In a recent interview Trump was asked about his thoughts of a possible Supreme Court murder, and he claimed, “They say they found a pillow on his face, which is a pretty unusual place to find a pillow.” When asked if he was in firm belief that Scalia’s death was a result of foul play, he stated, “I can’t give you an answer.”

The rest of the land is expected to be used for an expansion of Howard University, green space, a supermarket, housing developments and a charter school.
