Is he the owner of the building and is he free to sell it at any time if he wishes? And if he does, does that mean he did not have to pay for his penthouse in the building ?

    I do not think this is political and no, Trump Organization owns Trump Tower, Donald Trump does not personally own it – Dylan Czenski Aug 26 '16 at 18:41

    @blip unless you have a reference that backs up that there is a "Mortgage" on the trump tower I think you are wrong. There may be corporate debt involved but there is no mortgage or similar vehicle for large buildings like that. – SoylentGray Aug 27 '16 at 6:29

    @blip yeah from the actual reference used - $80 million in bond debt secured by the property - thats not the same as a mortgage. But its a common corporate debt vehicle – SoylentGray Aug 27 '16 at 7:47

    This is political because his campaign is paying rent to Trump Tower. It's illegal for a campaign to pay the candidate money. Campaign funds are supposed to pay other expenses, not compensate the candidate for use of resources. – Brythan Sep 12 '16 at 16:36

    Apparently the answer is "yes" when he's applying for a loan, but "no" when it's time for him to pay taxes. – Shadur Apr 6 '19 at 12:12
