Yes, Trump demands a payoff for Microsoft’s purchase, or he will kill it.

Anyone wondering NOW if he’s not a mob Don ?

i read an article earlier today, sorry can't recall the source, that in deals with a foreign company it is normal for the US to review it and there is a fee to cover the cost of the review. it's based on a percentage of the deal but it is capped at $300,000. when i read that i wondered if 45 inserted that he'd demand money for the US Treasury out of this was just his way of claiming he closed a deal for the country and wow, isn't he an artful negotiator.

"Key money is when you pay a landlord money (usually under the table) to secure an apartment," says renters rights attorney Sam Himmelstein, who notes that sometimes, it was supers, building managers, or even the tenants themselves who demanded the cash. The practice, unsurprisingly, is illegal -- only licensed real estate brokers are allowed to collect commission for an apartment -- and has largely fallen by the wayside in recent years. "I haven't seen it in years," says Himmelstein, "and most people don't report it unless they get into a scrape with their landlords."

That’s how crooked this piece of ---- Trump is.
