COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY NIAMH MCINTYRE IN THE INDEPENDENT
“Network of wealthy Russians has sunk $100m into Donald Trump’s luxury developments”
I don’t even like Trump anymore – owing to his now-apparent failure in military and international affairs policies – yet I dislike outright dishonesty in the press even more.
This story is beneath contempt.
Trump projects get investor support in many countries. It is just ordinary international business activity.
Russia, in case you haven’t noticed in a fairly open and free economy.
People investing in a project are not the same thing as political connections and influence.
And, please, a hundred million dollars in today’s investment world is pocket change, not a “lengthy list of major investments.”
Just utterly brainless, and the kind of stuff that actually generates sympathy for your target.
