Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s financial hustles and scams are having their curtains pulled back. The public is being made aware of Trump’s various business dealings with Russian nationals. While Trump has said he has no business dealings in Russia a recent investigation has found that is an absolute fabrication.
Trump tweeted in July, “For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia.” In reality an investigation by ABC found Trump has made $100s of millions of dollars with Russia, which is a stark conflict of interest as Trump has vowed to be tough in dealing with the soviet nation. This is despite Trump’s contradictory statements of having no relationship with Russia:
Will I sell condos to Russians on occasion? Probably. I mean I do that. I have a lot of condos. I do that. But I have no relationship to Russia whatsoever.
The business record of the billionaire Republican has been revealed by Sergei Millian, a Russian businessman who claims to have worked closely with Trump. He said, “The level of business amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars. What he received as a result of interaction with Russian businessmen. They were happy to invest with him, and they were happy to work with Donald Trump. And they were happy to associate and be associated with Donald Trump.”
Now that Trump has been caught in yet another lie of dubious distinction the American public has further evidence of his deplorable practices. If and when an individual chooses to support Trump it will be to their own detriment.
