Some of the creative ways Donald's father Fred channeled money to Donald and his other siblings include: The New York Times reviewed a large number of documents and information to uncover the items listed above:

The findings are based on interviews with Fred Trump’s former employees and advisers and more than 100,000 pages of documents describing the inner workings and immense profitability of his empire. They include documents culled from public sources — mortgages and deeds, probate records, financial disclosure reports, regulatory records and civil court files.

The investigation also draws on tens of thousands of pages of confidential records — bank statements, financial audits, accounting ledgers, cash disbursement reports, invoices and canceled checks. Most notably, the documents include more than 200 tax returns from Fred Trump, his companies and various Trump partnerships and trusts. While the records do not include the president’s personal tax returns and reveal little about his recent business dealings at home and abroad, dozens of corporate, partnership and trust tax returns offer the first public accounting of the income he received for decades from various family enterprises.

On Friday August 31, 2018 Trump formally notified "Congress that he would enter into a trade agreement with Mexico. He stipulated in a letter that Canada could be added 'if it is willing.'” "The United States runs an overall trade surplus with Canada, one of its biggest trading partners.  Trump wants Canada to end its steep tariffs on US dairy products, claiming they hurt US farmers. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged to protect his country's dairy industry.  Trump on Friday also threatened new tariffs on Canadian cars if the country doesn't comply with US-terms of a new trade deal." The new USMCA deal was announced on Monday October 1, 2018 after coming to an agreement with Canada the previous day and Mexico in August. The most significant changes from NAFTA are as follows:
  • "Automobiles must have 75 percent of their components manufactured in Mexico, the US, or Canada to qualify for zero tariffs (up from 62.5 percent under NAFTA)."
  • "40 to 45 percent of automobile parts have to be made by workers who earn at least $16 an hour by 2023. Mexico has also agreed to pass laws giving workers the right to union representation, extend labor protections to migrant workers, and protect women from discrimination. The countries can also sanction one another for labor violations."
  • Canada's dairy market will now be more accessible to U.S. dairy farmers
  • "The terms of copyright [are extended] to 70 years beyond the life of the author (up from 50). It also extends the period that a pharmaceutical drug can be protected from generic competition."
  • "New provisions to deal with the digital economy [include] prohibiting duties on things like music and e-books, and protections for internet companies so they’re not liable for content their users produce."
  • Canada and Mexico did not get protection from section 232 tariffs (the trade loophole Trump used to impose steel and aluminum tariffs).
Congress still has to approve this new trade deal, which could take years. Be wary of fake news on this- a Fox News opinion piece notes that Trump had already replaced NAFTA with a new deal with Mexico in August of 2018.

After strong criticism on both sides for siding with Russia over our own intelligence, Trump later clarified at a subsequent press conference:

The sentence should have been “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,” sort of a double negative. So you can put that in and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself. I have on numerous occasions noted our intelligence findings that Russians attempted to interfere in our elections.
