BUSTED: Documents show Trump is still lying about Trump Tower Moscow

Published

on

President Donald Trump told the New York Times that his business deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow wasn’t a business deal because it hadn’t advanced very far, even though he signed a letter of intent to build it while he was running for president.

“I don’t think they had a location,” Trump said in dismissing the deal’s significance. “I’m not even sure if they had a location.”

However, documents obtained by BuzzFeed about the Trump Tower Moscow project show once again that the president isn’t telling the truth.

“In fact, hundreds of pages of business documents, emails, text messages, and architectural plans obtained by BuzzFeed News show that the Trump Organization was scoping at least one prime location for the luxury glass skyscraper,” writes reporter Emma Loop. “The signed letter of intent includes a proposal to build the tower in Moscow City, a former industrial complex near the edge of the Moscow River that has since been converted into an ambitious commercial district clustered with several of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe.”

Looper also notes that Trump repeated false claims first made by attorney Rudy Giuliani that there were no concrete plans when it came to the construction of the tower. This too, Looper says, is false.

BuzzFeed News last week published detailed plans revealing that the tower was in fact a richly imagined vision of upscale splendor on the banks of the river, expected to yield profits in excess of $300 million,” she explains.
