President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump says she “barely” knew about the prospective Moscow deal that the Trump Organization pursued while Trump was also running for president, downplaying the significance of the project’s exploration.
“Literally almost nothing,” Ivanka Trump said of her knowledge of the prospective deal. “We were an active business.”
“There was never a binding contract. I never talked to the — with a third party outside of the organization about it. It was one of — I mean we could have had 40 or 50 deals like that, that were floating around, that somebody was looking at. Nobody visited it to see if it was worth our time. So this was not exactly like an advanced project,” the president’s eldest daughter said.
The plan for the Moscow project, according to Felix Sater who raised money for developments on behalf of the Trump Organization, was to make the tower the world’s tallest building.
