Donald Trump blasts ‘failing’ New York Times report on Deutsche Bank: ‘I didn’t need money’

President Trump said Monday “The Failing New York Times” will “pass away” following its report that anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank flagged Mr. Trump’s and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner’s, entities for possible illicit activity.

“The Failing New York Times (it will pass away when I leave office in 6 years), and others of the Fake News Media, keep writing phony stories about how I didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with me. WRONG! It is because I didn’t need money,” the president tweeted.

“Very oldfashioned, but true. When you dont need or want money, you dont need or want banks. Banks have always been available to me, they want to make money. Fake Media only says this to disparage, and always uses unnamed sources (because their sources dont even exist,)” Mr. Trump said.


“The Mainstream Media has never been as corrupt and deranged as it is today. FAKE NEWS is actually the biggest story of all and is the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! That’s why they refuse to cover the REAL Russia Hoax. But the American people are wise to what is going on,” he said.

Mr. Trump and his family have sued both Deutsche Bank and Capital One to prevent them from handing over business records to two congressional committees investigating his finances via in subpoenas.
