Donald Trump wanted to see some changes in the economy, so he decided to start accepting gold instead of cash from his tenants. With the monetary crisis still looming, magnates like Donald Trump need to find new solutions to keep their empires safe. Here is what the real estate tycoon did: he offered a ten-year lease for the 50th floor of his 40 Wall Street skyscraper in return for three 32-ounce gold bullions. The customer? One of the largest precious metal dealers in the States, called Apmex.
Commenting on the deal, Trump said “It’s a sad day when a large property owner starts accepting gold instead of dollar. The economy is bad, and Obama’s not protecting the dollar at all”. He hopes that if he makes this move, other people will do the same thing “and maybe we’ll see some changes”.
