Trump celebrates New Year's Eve with ex-felon with mob ties

Donald Trump appeared with Joseph Cinque at his New Year's Eve party in Florida on Saturday. 

NY Daily News - President-elect Donald Trump rang in the new year together with Joseph "Joey No Socks" Cinque — a convicted felon with ties to notorious Gambino crime family boss John Gotti, a recently released video has revealed.

Cinque can be seen in a video obtained by the Palm Beach Daily News, cheering loudly as a tuxedo-clad Trump runs through a number of campaign promises before the hundreds of guests attending the New Year's Eve bash the President-elect threw at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on Saturday.

Cinque's Sunday appearance with Trump might raise some eyebrows.

Beyond a 1989 felony conviction for possessing nearly $100,000 worth of stolen artwork, Cinque "used to be friends with John Gotti," according to a New York Magazine profile from 1995. 

Cinque was also "shot three times and left for dead" in a 1980 incident that authorities described as "a hit," according to the profile.

Further, Saturday's Mar-a-Lago party was far from the first time Cinque cheered on Trump.

Trump lies matter (even to archeologists)

What Trump means by "urban renewal"

Trump's treasury pick was chair of company responsible for extraordinary number of foreclosures

Trump on computers: "I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what’s going on." He also pointed out that computers have "speed" and "a lot of other things."
