“Over nearly two decades, Deutsche Bank’s leaders repeatedly saw red flags surrounding Mr. Trump. There was a disastrous bond sale, a promised loan that relied on a banker’s forged signature, wild exaggerations of Mr. Trump’s wealth, even a claim of an act of God.” Of all of the crazy twists and turns of Donald Trump’s wild rise, the most perplexing of all could be the decision by Deutsche Bank execs to do business with him when he had repeatedly attempted to dupe them; the relationship continued long after every other major bank had locked their vaults and thrown away the keys.
