Deutsche Bank Will Not Collaborate With Trump

The New York Times reported that, Deutsche Bank will not do business in the future with U.S. President Donald Trump or his companies in the wake of his supporters’ deadly Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol. Deutsche Bank is Trump’s most principal lender, with about $340 million in loans outstanding to the Trump Organization, the president’s umbrella group that is currently overseen by his two sons.

A spokesman for Deutsche Bank refused to give a comment. The Trump Organization did not instantly respond to an email seeking comment outside normal business hours, and the White House press office did not answer the phone. Christiana Riley, the head of the bank’s U.S. operations, last week condemned last week’s violence in a post on Linkedin. She wrote, “We are proud of our Constitution and stand by those who seek to uphold it to ensure that the will of the people is upheld and a peaceful transition of power takes place.”  In November Reuters reported that Deutsche was looking for ways to end its relationship with Trump after the U.S. elections.
