Last week, Restore Progress reported on the curious case of a Russian billionaire paying $50 million more than asking price for a Florida mansion owned by Trump. Now, Reuters is reporting that Russians have paid Trump an additional $98.4 million for residential units within seven luxury condominiums owned by Trump in south Florida.
“A Reuters review has found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida, according to public documents, interviews and corporate records.”
“The buyers include politically connected businessmen, such as a former executive in a Moscow-based state-run construction firm that works on military and intelligence facilities, the founder of a St. Petersburg investment bank and the co-founder of a conglomerate with interests in banking, property and electronics.”
Considering Trump has netted about $200 million from Russia buyers in Florida alone, it is no wonder Trump is so eager to please Russian president Vladimir Putin. The Russian people have been very good to Trump!
