President Donald Trump likes to boast about being a ‘successful’ businessman. However, the President of the United States would rather you and the American people to remain oblivious to his methods of accumulating wealth.
Trump and his company have worked with wealthy Russian businessman and oligarchs from former soviet states in real estate schemes. According to USA Today‘s review of court cases, many of them are connected to the Russian mafia.
From Real Time Politics:
- A member of the firm that developed Trump SoHo Hotel in New York, a twice convicted felon;
- An investor in the SoHo project who was accused of being involved in a $55 million laundering scheme by Belgian authorities in 2011;
- And three owners of Trump condos in Florida and Manhattan, who were indicted on their belonging to a Russian-American organized crime group and working for a major international crime boss in Russia.
Trump’s connection with the Russians are heavily scrutinized. The American people are right to be worried about Trump past involvement with organized crime.
The president has used the Russians to benefit himself over the years. It is not crazy to believe he did the same this past Presidential election.
Despite the extensive evidence against him, Trump still denies he has any deep ties with Russia.
I have no dealings with Russia. I have no deals that could happen in Russia, because we’ve stayed away. And I have no loans with Russia. I have no loans with Russia at all.
However, Trump’s actions in 2013 contradict this statement when he addressed investors in Russia. He even told Real Estate Weekly “I have a great relationship with many Russians, and almost all of the oligarchs were in the room.”
Despite what Trump says to the press or rants about on Twitter the evidence is there. Will this be enough to take down Trump’s regime?
