Donald Trump failed to disclose a $19.8 million loan from a company with ties to North Korea while he was president, Forbes reported Sunday, citing documents uncovered by the New York attorney general's office.

I just don't know. It's sad. I'm disappointed in Trump.

From what I've heard and read over the years living in the NYC media market...

In the late 1990's, early 2000's, private 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?

Headline is a bit misleading:

"Daewoo is a South Korean conglomerate that partnered with Trump on a development project near the United Nations headquarters in New York City and on several other projects over the years. The company has ties to North Korea, Forbes reported, and was the only South Korean company allowed to operate a business in North Korea in the mid-1990s."

Being a South Korean corporation with "North Korean ties" does not make it a North Korean company. By this logic, that would make the vast majority of US companies "Chinese companies."

Just sayin'.

While I agree, just think about it. ANY which way this is bad - Foreign influence. But remember he had a buddy in Kim.

Well he raised money to build the casinos, bottled water, steaks, airlines that all folded from banks and private investors. Much of it raised via fraudulent valuations of the assets he has owned as alleged by the NYS lawsuit against his organization. His history is that when the tax appraiser comes around the property is a dump, but when it comes time for loan appraisals it is the taj mahal. Over and over and over. Eventually those schemes are uncovered and prosecuted.

His financing is turning increasingly to foreign governments and criminal organizations which leads to him being compromised when it comes to items of national security. Xi held up $500,000,000 in financing of an indonesia resort he was building until he over ruled our defense department to allow ZTE to sell in the US again. www.businessinsider.com Within three days of the Chinese government agreeing to provide $500 million in loans to an Indonesian theme park that the Trump Organization has a deal to license President Donald Trump's name to, the president stunningly ordered sanctions be rescinded against a major Chinese telecom company.

Trading national security for a theme park.

Why did we not know about this. I guess we'd better terminate the Constitution and make Hillary President.

"Why did we not know about this..."

The media largely found it easier to focus on the Tweet storm. Investigative journalism is hard. And expensive. And demands a greater attention span from the audience for them to absorb the information. Plus the dramatic nature of Trump's behavior had an entertainment factor that dry analysis and reporting does not. I think it might be a kind of chicken/egg question with respect to assigning blame.

You get people to lend you money based on getting paid back with interest. That's what happened here since the article says they were paid off in the first 5 months of his presidency. Same thing when you bought your trailer when your parents kicked you out of their basement.

" That's what happened here since the article says they were paid off in the first 5 months of his presidency."

Which begs the question: where did the additional money come from?

Selling state secrets?

Hillary would have been president if she had even 2% of that ability. I'm sure most of her speechwriters killed themselves.

Nope. Just another nail (even if it is a bit rusty) in his legal coffin.

How can this not be considered traitorous, if not treasonous behavior by Trump?
