Another Trump Co Bankruptcy Filing Imminent

Tyler Durden's picture


The man who spends 120% of his time between fixing his hair, discussing his presidential chances on CNBC and filing for bankruptcy has done it again.


It sure puts our commentary on the Donald's morning CNBC appearance into perspective.

I've often wondered how he's still operating considering his speckled past of poor post management on any of his deals.


Can anyone name a project of his that's lasted longer than a year...two years...that hasn't gone broke.  I know he was the "art of the deal" asshole in the 80's with NYC real estate.  What has he honestly done that has created any net benefit for anyone, including himself, in the last 25 years?

Trump keeps operating because he changed his MO after hitting the wall in the early '90s.  He now has neglible if any of his own equity in the majority of his ventures (e.g.  Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago), preferring to earn management and licensing fees while using OPM to fund development.  With no skin in the game, Trump is happy to roll the dice and lever his investments to absurd levels.  Trump has borrowed gizillions over the years from the public HY market and stiffed investors on numerous occasions.  You would have thought investors would have learned that once bitten, twice shy.

But, CPL, you could be describing so many corporate "heroes" today, as well as all those flibbertigibbets who dare call themselves economists (at MIT, Harvard, Princeton and Yale) who have never gotten anything in their lives right or correct!

Feldstein at Harvard?  What a shill.

Ferguson at Harvard, another two-pence shill?

Two clowns from MIT who recently wrote one of those pre-financed Wall Street propagada drivel books, claiming the offshoring of jobs has had no effect on the job market, it's automation that's too blame?

(Evidently, arithmetic isn't their strong suit at MIT, especially judging by those previous clowns like Samuelson and Thurow.)

Peddling junk paper, offshoring jobs, importing foreign scab labor (shades of the historic animus to the Alien Contract Labor Act of long ago), doing leveraged buyout "pump-and-dumps" --- when was the last time you met or heard of an American CEO who knew anything whatsoever about business, production, innovation?  (And yes, Steve Jobs may have been a standout, but look at the lack of any real competition?)

My comment on Zh from three months ago...

The Donald knows how to game the system...the real estate, bankruptcy, B list celebrity system that he operates in. Wearing that roadkill on his head can't shield him from a good old fashioned market drubbing.  Sorry Donald stick to your go-to(runnning businesses into the ground and reality TV, Hey Jim Cramer and Glenn Beck are doing just fine!) 


good to see he's getting back to his bread and butter.

Not a big fan of Trump but get your facts straight before posting.  Doubt he even had much of an equity stake.  As for the debt probably not at all.  Pretty much marketing only for Trump on most deals partlcularly out of the US.  This Tyler might want to do a little due dili to confirm Trump is on the note.  

Back to your worthless discussions on gold or oligarchs.

In all fairness, Trump doesn't own the property.  He merely leased out his name.  He doesn't have any financial stake in the property.  I've been there and looked at it.  So I have some firsthand knowledge of it.

Trump is a genius...long ago he realized what the Fed and politicians are just coming to grips with.  That is that you come up with grand schemes with huge ROIs...get banks and investors to load up, build the thing, go bankrupt, wipe off the dept and keep a minority holding...onto the next project....if you or I tried this we would be living with the cats under the Atlantic City boardwalk but not this guy...

Dont forget that when debt is defaulted on it is THE SAVERS that lose, the responsible people who have deferred consumption in the hopes of future gratification, the BEDROCK of Capitalism. When credit is so misallocated and given in huge quantities to these clowns like trump and all these real estate "magnates" who just had access to the huge credit amounts to buy up all this real estate crap , this is sickening. Time for major changes.

So greece and italy cannot default - but Trump can make a habit of it?


Where are the calls for an end to the 'socialist hairpiece' or the demands to curtail the "excessive Trump pension" - or perhaps the calls to insist that "debtors should be FORCED to pay" and when will we see an Italian dictator imposed on Trump to extract the wealth for his creditors?


Either Capitalism works for all - or it doesn't work.


People should consider the differences between these two defaults - and why the Trump is allowed to walk away but nations cannot.


We will be handing 'Trump islands' over to the creditor? or will this all have been pre-seperated into neat little limited losses for Trump?

Just like that awful American show I saw the other day - these 'rich' plead poverty - but they have no idea what it is.

Why? Because a sovereign default would undermine confidence in the criminals in charge, leading to widespread chaos (something they'd rather dish out piecemeal over time in certain places).

It's all about maintaining the facade. Eventually, things will get so bad, that people will demand a different facade, and (un)fortunately??? they will get it.

As for Trump, anyone who still "invests" with him, gets what they deserve.
