US politicians question Trump ties to Panama real estate project

The United States politicians question Trump ties to scandal-struck Panama real estate project. The Panama City project is said to have earned the President between USD 30-50 million.

Two members of Congress have asked the Trump Organisation to reveal if it knew about allegations that real estate agents and investors linked to a project bearing the President’s name in Panama, had ties to money laundering and drugs. Democratic congresswoman Norma Torres and congressman Eliot Engel asked if the company, founded by Donald Trump and run by his sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr since their father entered the White House, was aware of the claims relating to the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower in Panama City. They asked what due diligence was done on investors and agents involved in the project, which has earned Mr Trump between USD 30 and 50 million for lending his name to it.

The Trump Organisation have not responded to enquiries immediately.
