October 2004, a real estate mogul was touting getting huge investors into his newest project... a large tower in Chicago...
“It is such a huge project, and the prices he said he was getting were so outside the norm,” Robert Glickman, then the head of Chicago’s Corus Bank, told the Tribune. “It was reasonable to say, ‘Is this real?’”
“It’s a very expensive building to build because of the quality we are putting into it,” he said. “So people of course would say, `Gee, that’s a lot of money to raise.’ “But for me, it’s not a lot of money. You understand.”
Who is the real estate mogul caught taking SOROS monies? Well, it was tRUMP for his Chicago tRUMP Tower. Soros lent Trump $160 million to help with the construction of Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago.
“Oh, forget Soros, leave him alone, he’s got enough problems,” Trump said at a 2011 Tea Party rally when one attendee yelled the billionaire’s name at him.“He goes, ‘What about Soros!’” Trump continued. “Let’s talk about somebody else.”
