The house that Trump built. Russian billionaire nearly lost millions in a deal with future US President
Billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev managed to get back the money paid to Donald Trump. In 2008, the oligarch purchased an estate from the future US President for $95 million and recouped the invested funds only ten years later. To do so, he had to demolish the most expensive private mansion in the USA and sell the land in pieces. The successful sale of Maison de L'Amitie is currently presented as a proof that there was no ‘Russian trace' in the American presidential elections, and the deal with Rybolovlev was not a disguised bribe to the presidential candidate. However, new owners of the three parcels of the Trump's former estate remain unknown.
