Those interested in the finances of Donald J. Trump may be going about it in the wrong way.  Instead of asking him about his sources of income, we should be asking him about his expenditures, instead. Now that is information designed to build one's ego, and Donald spends a lot  to keep up appearances.

When one considers his 5th Avenue apartment, his 3 trophy wives,  his Palm Beach mansion, his airplane and other items of conspicuous consumption, one can understand his need to hustle, for new business, to make a quick buck.

What may take a bit longer to understand, is how it is possible to elect him to the Presidency, and not evoke the old adage about a fox being set to guard the henhouse?

  1. Trump's hundreds of millions in loan debt to Deutsche Bank are proof of that. The fact is that last year, around the same time Trump secured the $170 million for the Washington project, Deutsche Bank agreed to pay a $2.5 billion fine to regulators here and abroad for its role in rigging interest rates. This included $600 million to the New York State Department of Financial Services, $800 million to the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, and $775 million to the Department of Justice. So, I suppose Trump's hundreds of millions in loan debt to Deutsche Bank might be viewed as a conflict of interest ... loan debt interest for one.
