Long-Time Backer Deutsche Bank Cuts Ties With Donald Trump Following Capitol Riots

Long-Time Backer Deutsche Bank Cuts Ties With Donald Trump Following Capitol Riots

Deutsche Bank has become another major brand to cut ties with Donald Trump and his business operations as the fallout over the Capitol riots continues.

The New York Times said the German bank is distancing itself from the US President after he was accused of inciting a mob of diehard supporters to storm the building in Washington D.C.

Deutsche Bank has been one of Trump's biggest financial supporter over the last several decades, especially during his suspected bankruptcies.

However, Trump muddied the waters when he sued the bank for $3 billion in compensation and accused them of being responsible for the financial crisis.

The decision to cut ties comes at a time when The Trump Organisation, which is taken care of by Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump, owes the bank roughly $340 million in outstanding loans, according to the Guardian.

But Deutsche isn't the only bank that is severing its relationship with the outgoing US President.

New York's Signature Bank is not only closing Trump's personal account with him, but they are also calling for him to resign.
