President Trump's companies own more than 400 luxury condos, penthouses and home lots coast to coast and anyone can buy them without the public knowing who they are, a USA Today investigation has found. And unlike developments where Trump licenses his name to a separate developer for a flat fee, these individual properties directly owned by his companies ultimately enrich the President personally.
From USA Today:
The volume of real estate creates an extraordinary and unprecedented potential for people, corporations or foreign interests to try to influence a president. Anyone who wanted to court favor with the president could snap up multiple properties or purposefully overpay. They could buy in the name of a shell company, making it impossible for the public to know who was behind the sales.
