WASHINGTON - The White House on Friday released a letter from President Trump's lawyers asserting he has no income from Russian sources -- except the $95 million he received from the sale of a Palm Beach estate and proceeds from a Miss Universe pagent in Moscow.
"What do I have to do with Russia?” Trump said last summer in Doral. “You know the closest I came to Russia, I bought a house a number of years ago in Palm Beach … for $40 million, and I sold it to a Russian for $100 million.”
The letter released Friday shows Trump acquired the estate in 2005 for $41 million and sold it to Russian billionaire for $95 million.
Here's a past story the Miami Herald ran on the deal.
