Why Was A Russian Trump Tower So Important To Trump?.....

Why was it so important that he would collude with the Russians and hide the fact that he had or did business with the Russians?

1. Likely it was money

Everything that Trump does can be traced back to money and prestige. A Trump Tower in Russia would allow him a continuous cash flow from laundering money for Russian Oligarchs. Trump becoming president probably played in his mind like being able to write himself his own "get out of Jail" card.

2. It's all about the rubles

Trump got his beak wet with Russian gangsters buying his condos at insane prices. Why not go to the source and create a more direct money laundering pipeline?

4. It has been speculated

That upon visiting Russia for the pageant his was running, he became enamored with Russian oligarchs and their power and money. He wanted access to that level of wealth and corruption free from government interference

It has been further speculated that's when he decided to run for president, for the same reasons

Wealth, power, corruption without prosecution.

He wanted access to Putin so he could be like Putin

6. A way for him to get his foot in the Russian door. I think the big pay off for Trump and others

like George Papa-dumb-ass, was a stake in the Rosneft Oil deal that Putin dangled in front of the traitors. The oil deal would have meant billions (BILLIONS) in income.

And it's something Trump couldn't really fuck up, given his history of bad real estate deals and bankruptcies.

All they had to do was sit back and let the cash roll in. Oh, and commit TREASON!

8. To impress the Russian ladies, no doubt

He needs something with impressive height and girth with his name installed on it to make up for other, shall we say, shortcomings...

9. putin dangled the tower trumps been wanting for decades

Only to nix it, but trump is claiming he pulled the plug on the deal, but he's likely lying about it. Putin used it to get him all in with putins plan, and election swinging that made trump the illegitimate president for putin to use to get sanctions lifted with, and to undermine this country's government with by division and chaos.
