wwjd -- As I wrote in my 2017 blog article,
"[Trump] owes the banks hundreds of millions of dollars but through threats and lawsuits has always managed to restructure the payment of those loans. And now he has even more leverage over his lenders because if he fails as president and is impeached or resigns, their ability to collect on those loans becomes more difficult if the Trump brand is permanently tarnished. They need Trump as much as Trump needs them."
"Likewise, for any Russian oligarchs holding Trump loans, it is in their best interests to have Trump continue as president where they and Putin have leverage over him. Any public disclosure of Trump’s financial dealings including his tax returns could be devastating to not only the Trump global organization but also to the many banks and financial institutions that have been conned into loaning him money. They also need Trump as president as much as Trump needs them."
It's like the old adage, if you owe the bank a $1,000 and cannot pay you have a problem. But if you owe the bank $10 million and cannot pay, the bank has a problem. The banks, the Russian and Saudi oligarchs, and others who have engaged in shady deals with Trump have every bit as much to lose as Trump if his taxes and other financials dealings are exposed to the public and regulatory authorities worldwide. The Trump organization will come crashing down, but maybe a few banks will have their reputations soiled along with it.
He is highly leveraged, and theoretically probably owes more than his total wealth. Much of his so called "paper wealth" is the Trump brand name. If that is tarnished and goes zero or negative, then he may go bankrupt. Some businesses are already removing the Trump logo from their public signage because it is hurting profits.
