This is an interesting, long-running storyline:
1/ Trump has long wanted to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
2/ While Trump was running for president in late 2015 and early 2016, his company was pursuing a plan to develop a massive Trump Tower in Moscow.
3/ A business associate of Trump promised in 2015 to engineer a real estate deal with the aid of Putin, that he said would help Trump win the presidency.
4/ A top executive from Donald Trump’s real estate company emailed Vladimir Putin’s personal spokesman during the U.S. presidential campaign last year to ask for help advancing a stalled Trump Tower development project in Moscow
