Interesting item on Trump debt

Trump owes Ladder Capital approx $257 million for 4 loans in NYC (of that $138mil for 40 Wall is assigned to Well Fargo)

In May Ladder announced agreement with Koch Real Estate Investments LLC for $206.4 million financing…
As part of the strategic financing agreement, Koch has the right to make a $32 million equity investment in the Company at any time prior to December 31, 2020…
Ladder Capital also completed a private CLO with Goldman Sachs and raised $310.2 million of gross proceeds to finance $481.3 million of loans

A CLO, collateralized loan obligation, is a security backed by a pool of debt - the investors are not known…
As far as I know $206.4 million financing from Koch Real Estate Investment (affiliate of Koch Industries) for Ladder Capital is their first deal together

And Ladder also raised approx $300mil in a private CLO handled by Goldman from unknown investors 🤔…
An update on my chart of Trump's largest creditors - since published Dec 2017, Trump paid down approx $25 mil on Ladder loans

In 2017 Trump owed approx $282mil to Ladder, now loans are approx $257 mil (he paid $22mil on 40 Wall and a bit on other loans)…
The updated Trump loan amounts for Ladder are based on this excellent article from @DanAlexander21 which notes that Trump paid down 40 Wall St loan from $160 to $138 million

Remember the 'mystery' state-owned bank that Mueller was investigating?

It was an Egyptian state-owned bank

Mueller team was trying to see if $ flowing through the bank backed millions Trump donated to his campaign

By @kpolantz @evanperez @jeremyherb…
I have to eat crow for joining the wild guessing game

Wonder if folks on the Mueller team were amused at the twitter speculation - and how far off base everyone was

Mueller's team tried to understand the $10 million contribution Trump gave his campaign 11 days before the 2016 election & the Trump campaign's ties to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

At a 2019 G7 summit Trump said "Where's my favorite dictator?"…

Russian GRU targeted Burisma and subsidaries such as Kub-Gas, co-owned by Burisma & Cub Energy, which is majority owned by Robert Bensh's Pelicourt

Trump's ex Energy Sect Perry suggested Burisma biz partner Bensh for Naftogaz board & he joined this year

Maybe MSM journalists can ask Trump admin why a business partner with Burisma was suggested to join Naftogaz board if associating with Burisma is so problematic...

I heard Robert Bensh was appointed in March 2020 through @ktskts11
