There was a German bank.
There was a time when Trump was a pariah on Wall St: his casino cos defaulted on their loans owing Citi, JPMorgan etc billions.
Trump’s dealings with Wall Street stretch back decades to his attempt to build an Atlantic City casino empire. That badly timed push forced him to renegotiate with creditors when he couldn’t pay back billions of dollars in loans … In 1998, a small group of its real-estate bankers led by Mike Offit underwrote a $125-million loan for renovations on Trump’s building at 40 Wall Street. Trump showed up at Offit’s office, his reputation badly bruised.
A friend in need is a bank indeed.
