Donald Trump’s Corruption Of America – ‘Trump Uses Web of LLCs to Hide His Business Ties’
Now you’d think this would be a real news story that the media would want to go after.
“Across Mr. Trump’s business, he uses a similar web of privately held LLCs and other entities to house his assets—everything from real estate to a vintage carousel in Manhattan’s Central Park, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of hundreds of pages of his corporate filings and personal financial disclosures’.
- ‘Fifteen entities, for example, are used to hold his interests in two airplanes and three helicopters.”
“Unlike publicly traded companies, Delaware LLCs don’t have to publish any financial information or even disclose the identity of the owner…”
- “None of the 96 LLCs examined by the Journal appear to regularly release audited financial statements”.
“That opacity—compounded by Mr. Trump’s decision to break with decades of precedent by declining to release his tax returns—makes it impossible to gauge the full extent of potential conflicts between his business interests and presidential role.”
