The US president has maintained a bank account in China, hitherto unknown and controlled by one of his companies.
The American president Donald Trump has a bank account in China where he tried for years to do business while posing as a real opponent of Beijing, unlike, he said, his democratic rival Joe Biden, affirms the “New York Times ”. The real estate mogul maintained the office, which he had opened in China before being elected, throughout his presidential term and attempted a partnership with a major Chinese state-controlled company, assures him. The US president also maintained a bank account in China, hitherto unknown and controlled by one of his companies, Trump International Hotels Management, according to an analysis of his tax returns seen by the NYT.
According to one such statement, the company paid China $ 188,561 in taxes as it struggled between 2013 and 2015 to secure business license agreements. Trump Group lawyer Alan Garten said the company had “opened an account with a Chinese bank, with offices in the United States, in order to pay its taxes.” “No agreement, transaction or other commercial activity has materialized and, since 2015, this account has remained inactive,” he said, quoted by the newspaper. Donald Trump has embarked on a trade and diplomatic war with China, claiming to be the only true defender of American interests against the Chinese giant, unlike Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate in the November presidential election, he says.
