While it has pretty much been confirmed that Donald Trump had been working on plans to build a Towering Hotel in Moscow during his 2015-2016 presidential bid, new direct evidence of such plans as early as 2013 has just boiled to the surface. While Trump claimed on numerous occasions that he had no business ties to Russia, a video, which was filmed at a November 2013 press conference in Russia, proves that he had every intention of building what may have been Moscow’s tallest skyscraper hotel.
First pointed out by Scott Dworkin, the Co-Founder of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, the Forbes video shows Trump bragging about his ambitious plans for a Moscow Trump Tower.
“We’ve met with a number of people and we may do something in Moscow and various parts of Russia. But we have had some meetings while I’m here and we could very well do something. We are thinking about doing a Trump Tower, Moscow, so we are talking to a group of people about doing that,” Trump stated to a reporter in November of 2013.

Throughout his campaign, Trump repeatedly said that he never any any business in Russia and no connections with Russia what-so-ever. The fact that he was actually planning on building what likely would have been the largest building in Moscow, all while campaigning with the promise that he had no business ties to the country, shows just how far he was willing to go in order to deceive the American people and squash the whole Trump/Russia narrative.
While this video doesn’t prove a crime took place by any means, it does show that the President has publicly tried to cover up his dealings with a nation that is accused of helping him win the 2016 election. Let’s hear your thoughts on this video in the comments section below.
