Trump sought deal with China as he was bashing them
His hotel company wanted a deal as he was bashing the Chinese government.
Trump has long declared Beijing to be America’s “enemy”, but his Trump Hotel Collection (THC) negotiated with the State Grid Corporation of China — an electricity company that is the country’s largest state-owned enterprise — to brand and manage a major development in the capital, according to sources with direct knowledge of the talks.
The process resulted in a memorandum of understanding for a deal potentially worth between $100 million and $150 million over 15 years, Robby Qiu, the former director of Trump’s Greater China office told AFP.
The discussions were confirmed by a source who asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive business information.
