BUSINESS/CONFLICT OF INTEREST/DONALD ON DONALD/TRUMP TAXES: "SPEAKER- 'How you plan to disentangle yourself from your business. But first, I have to follow-up on some of these Russian remarks. Based on your comments here today, do you believe the hacking was justified? Does Russia have any leverage over you, financial or otherwise? And if not, will you release your tax returns to prove it?'
DONALD TRUMP- 'So I tweeted out, that I have no dealings with Russia, I have no deals in Russia, I have no deals that could happen in Russia because we have stayed away, and I have no loans with Russia. As a real estate developer I have very very little debt, I have assets that are – and now people have found out how big the company is. I have very little debt, I have very low debt. But I have no loans with Russia at all and I thought that was important to point out. I certify that. I have no deals. I have no loans. I have no dealings. We could make deals in Russia very easily, if we wanted to, I just don’t want to because I think that would be a conflict. So I have no loans, no dealings, and no current pending deals.' "
