He won't have any trouble. There is a line of banks Stretching around the block that would like $25MM on deposit.

If the way private banks in Florida whore themselves out for high net worth customers is any indication he won't have to buy a toaster or a flatware set for quite some time.

Good that some banks are starting to follow the know your customer law to combat money laundering.  Any bank that has trump as a customer should be investigated for money laundering because it is well known that donnie has engaged in money laundering.

Or more likely...

banks are backing away from the Trumps (and similar people) because the liability their suspicious and probably criminal activity puts them into isn't worth it when you KNOW that several governments are actively investigating them.

Anytime in the past 5 years would've been political posturing. Now he's just some broke schlub with a lot of debts and no way to pay them.

Considering he has like 300 shell companies, I'm sure he can open some kind of account.

He can always get a toaster on Amazon.  Not sure if it's free for opening a credit card account with them.  Maybe Epik has a credit card site.

I expect the legal departments will want to make sure that money is clean, was produce in a clean way and stays clean. The money laundering laws that passed in the NDAA closed many of the loop holes Trump had been squirming through in the past.

Ahem: FTFA: "The accounts held somewhere between $5.1 million and $25.2 million."

If you think Trump has the top of the range, then you probably also think he is a great businessman. The more likely scenario is that Trump had $8 in his account and rounded up to $5.1 million.

It has been reported that he has given his personal guarantee on multiple loans that have either come due or are about to come due shortly to the tune of $1 Billion+.

I guess in the law school you claimed to have graduated from they do not teach what a personal guarantee of loans means and how it makes someones personal assets subject to attachment.

A guarantee that having him as a depositor means your firm will have a team of lawyers lawyers dealing full-time with subpoenas, investigators going through your books, and both governments and courts attempting to attach/seize/freeze assets due to various civil and criminal actions probably nonstop for the next several years?
That might be a bit of a disincentive to handling his money at this point. A -LOT- of people have eyes on it.

Is everyone announcing they aren't in a business relationship with Trump or are they trying to avoid something?
 
2021-01-21 5:05:33 PM  
At least Trump had a positive balance on those accounts.

Per TFA, Deutsche Bank is trying to unload $300 million of his rubber cheques, now it's clear that with most of his sources of grift cut off and his brand in ruins, he will never be able to cover them in full.

It's hard to imagine a lender in any country with genuine democratic credentials buying the loans at any price, regardless of the haircut. The PR hit they would cost make them less than worthless.

Ahh, yes, surely the guy losing control of properties he manages, losing money on properties he owns, and under investigation for tax fraud and money laundering is a good bet for any bank.  Safer than gambling in any of Trump's bankrupt casinos!
 
2021-01-21 5:07:43 PM  
Maybe the banks just don't approve of the way he hasn't paid his lawyer Rudy "The Motor Oil Madman" Giuliani for his services, and it's punitive because they love that greaseball for some reason.

Add to that the sanctions that China just slapped on former Trump administration officials.

It's kind of a Magnitsky Act, but targeting corruption in the Trump administration. These banks want to do business with China or businesses who want to do business with China, they drop those accounts.

The sanctions prohibit those individuals and their immediate family members from entering mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao. They are also restricted from doing business with China, as are any companies or institutions associated with them.

Banks can't do business with weed shops because marijuana is still federally banned, and banks who handle money from pot shops can be federally charged with money laundering.
