Sometime in early 2001, Trump World Tower (funded by criminal banks) opens in Manhattan. Between construction beginning in 1999 and the end of 2001, Donald Trump sells at least 65 condos to Russian buyers and the entire 45th floor to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for $4.5 million.
Trump began looking for buyers in Russia through Sotheby’s International Realty, which teamed up with a Russian real estate outfit. “I had contacts in Moscow looking to invest in the United States,” real estate broker Dolly Lenz told USA Today. “They all wanted to meet Donald.” In the end, she said, she sold 65 units to Russians in Trump World Tower alone.The Washington Post
Over a decade later, real estate broker Ilya Reznik tells USA Today that he’s sold dozens of condos in Trump’s Florida properties to Russian buyers.
