“You know, whether you like it or not, and it may not be politically correct, but we have world to run. And in the G7, which used to be the G8, they threw Russia out. They should let Russia come back in. Because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”
Sounds good, except appeasement of Hitler didn’t work. And countries and companies skirting around sanctions against Nazi Germany made World War II last longer. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2017/01/03/nazi-gold-laundered-through-turkey-banking-trade-intermediary-roles-of-switzerland-spain-portugal-and-others/
Ivana and Donald Trump’s marriage ended with the end of the Cold War. They married in 1977 and divorced in 1992. They had separated in early 1990. Her father had died in Prague, Czechoslovakia in October 1990. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivana_Trump The Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia was at the end of 1989: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velvet_Revolution The Soviet Union was officially dissolved at the end of 1991: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissolution_of_the_Soviet_Union

It appears that Trump’s inlaws acted as informants to the Czech secret police, who in turn worked with the KGB (where Putin used to work). They lived in Trump Tower for 6 months of the year, during the Cold War. And, his children stayed in Czechoslovakia for weeks at a time in the summer. It’s where they became hunters.
“The archives also reveal a file named after Ivana’s father Miloš Zelníček, who was monitored by the StB. During a trip to the US for Ivana’s wedding Miloš Zelníček was subject to an StB-ordered search of his possessions at the airport, interpreted as a warning shot that cooperation was the only way such trips would be permitted in the future… Records also suggest that after 1978 a so-called “operative file” was established on Ivana Trump, but researchers have yet to locate it…” Excerpted from: “CZECHOSLOVAK SECRET POLICE FILES REVEAL INTEREST IN TRUMP COUPLE“, by Dominik Jůn 02-12-2016 http://www.radio.cz/en/section/curraffrs/czechoslovak-secret-police-files-reveal-interest-in-trump-couple
In “The Art of the Deal” Trump discusses getting a January 1987 letter from the Soviet Ambassador, Yuri Dubinin, saying that Goscomintourist, Soviet state agency for international tourism, was interested in a construction-management joint venture for a hotel in Moscow. Luke Harding, author of “Collusion” wonders why Trump? He says, citing Viktor Suvorov, and other former spies, that the KGB operated Goscomintourist. In Moscow everything was free for the invited guests, with parties and girls. The hotel rooms were under 24 hour surveillance. These operations were meant for long term future use. Once individuals reached positions of influence, Soviet intel visited and reminded them of their stay in Moscow: “Do you remember the marvelous time in Moscow? It was a wonderful evening. You were so drunk. You don’t remember? We just show you something for your good memory., ’” according to Suvorov, as quoted in Harding, 2017. See: “The Hidden History of Trump’s First Trip to Moscow” See: “In 1987, a young real estate developer traveled to the Soviet Union. The KGB almost certainly made the trip happen“. By LUKE HARDING November 19, 2017 Excerpted from the book “Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win“, by Luke Harding http://web.archive.org/web/20180405121000/https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/19/trump-first-moscow-trip-215842 (The article is very important to read, and the book probably is, as well.)
Looking at the timeline, one cannot help but wonder if the inlaws brought in money from the Soviet Union-Eastern Europe, which helped to prop up his casino-hotel.
