view of Trump hotel in Azerbaijan

Alexandra Wrage interviews Adam Davidson, a staff writer for The New Yorker who recently wrote an article entitled “Donald Trump’s Worst Deal.” The article tells the story of a deserted Trump hotel and an Azerbaijani partner in the deal who hailed from a corrupt family with ties to Iran’s revolutionary guard. Despite a deep awareness in the region of the FCPA and AML regulations, this partnership generated the financial crime hat trick: corruption, money laundering and sanctions violations.
