That seems like a lot of money to loan a bad-risk grifter—a man who bankrupted casinos!—when no other major bank would touch him, bigly!
We can guess that Comrade Stupid owes the bank a lot of that $2b Ameros, which puts him in the asset column of the ol’ ledger. That becomes important as Deutsche is 1) trying to merge with another German bank, CommerzBank and B) because Deutsche Bank is notorious for money laundering (ALLEGEDLY!) for the Russians. So maybe in hearings for the merger, we might learn more about Comrade Stupid’s exposure to pressure or out-right kompromat? I’m curious!
As the article makes clear, no one had any comment: the bank, the White House, not even pugnacious twit Eric Trump, who has both said that the Trump Companies are not over-leveraged AND that they’ve had great opportunities in Russia.
