Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and President Vladimir Putin’s girlfriend Wendi Deng were seen together sightseeing in Croatia.
Ivanka Trump posted a photo on Instagram with her friend Wendi Deng last week. Speculation started to point at ties between the GOP candidate and the Russian president. Earlier, it had been previously reported by Morning News USA that there were talks of questionable ties between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
This was facilitated by deep business ties the GOP nominee shared with Russia. Donald Trump went for several trips to Russia in 1980’s to do business. Most importantly, his campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s involvement in Ukrainian assets and money laundering with people close to Putin even aggravated the theory.
However, Ivanka and Deng’s bonding might not have anything to do with the rumored Putin connections, according to Vanity Fair.
It had been alleged that the Russian leader and Deng were romantically involved since March 2016. Ever since their respective divorces, the news of the two being a couple circulated the corridors of power. An inside source close to the powerful president informed US Magazine that the relationship was something serious.
According to the New York Times, Deng and Ivanka had been friends since 2012. While she was married to Rupert Murdoch, Deng used to live at a condo in the Trump Park Avenue building, where Ivanka also lived.
It was reported that Deng frequently visited Ivanka and joined her at Sabbath dinners organized by Ms. Trump.
As the Presidential election campaign continues, reports about a Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin connection intensifies the suspicion.
