They are pulling down all Trump signage as soon as possible, to get the stench of orange Hitler away from the property.

It's going broke probably because he can't force anyone to stay there and pay the premium prices to Trumpy.

He can't use it as a loss leader now that Trump's taxes are under SDNY scrutiny. Those days of Trump Org tax shenanigans are over.

To me, this is proof he is not planning on running for POTUS.

He grifted millions off of foreign governments in violation of the constitution for four years with this property. For him to sell off a big piece of the corruption gravy train while planning on running for POTUS and restart the bankroll here does not make sense.

BaFin to Deepen Deutsche Bank Money Laundering Investigation (Feb 2019)

...Deutsche Bank released a statement on Friday saying that BaFin, the German financial regulator, has extended the remit of an independent auditor examining the lender's role in the Danske Bank money laundering scandal.

The case stems from an ongoing investigation into the Danish bank's Estonian division.

After a whistle-blower sounded the alarm about the activity of certain customers, most of whom were from Russia and the former Soviet Union, in late 2018, it became apparent that Danske Bank's Tallinn-based operations were doing business with some less than scrupulous individuals.

It is alleged that the bank laundered around $225 billion from 2007 to 2014. If that is the case, it would potentially be the largest instance of money laundering ever uncovered.

Deutsche Bank falls into the mix as it acted as Danske Bank's main correspondent bank. According to the Financial Times, the German bank was responsible for facilitating $180 billion in suspicious transactions....

Deutsche Bank Offices Are Raided In Money Laundering Probe (Nov 2018)

...In recent years, Deutsche Bank has been in the news not only for its prominence in the Panama Papers, but also for its ties to President Trump, in a tumultuous relationship that goes back some 20 years.

Trump and the bank once sued each other after he failed to repay a $300 million loan. And the author and reporter Luke Harding has described a "shuffle of money" between the bank's dealings with figures in Russia and its business with Trump. ...

From what I've heard over the years...

In the late 1990's, early 2000's, citizen Trump had blown through his final inheritance. In spite of that, he comes up with 100's of millions of $$$ from somewhere (or someone?) to build golf courses in Scotland and buy another one.

He ultimately spent 100's of millions of dollars on those golf courses.

But where did all that money come from?
