Trump discusses his business dealings in the US and the Middle East and complains about George W. Bush. He suggests that if Obama wins the 2008 election, Stern’s taxes will go way up.
“A very nice Russian Gentleman”
Trump mentions a “very nice Russian gentleman” who paid him $100 million for a house in Palm Beach, Florida, and says he wishes Americans would still do deals like that. The Russian gentleman in question is Dmitry Rybolovlev (Wikipedia), a Russian businessman who is believed to be worth over $7 billion dollars. In the 1990s Rybolovlev was charged with the contract killing of a business partner.
