I’m Aaron Glantz, investigative reporter at Reveal and the author of Homewreckers. Let’s talk about the close associates of Donald Trump — like Steve Mnuchin, Wilbur Ross, Tom Barrack, and Jared Kushner— who made billions off the housing crisis. AMA.
I’m Aaron Glantz, senior investigative reporter for Reveal and the author of Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.
It all started with a piece on Tom Barrack Jr, Trump’s oldest friend and inauguration chairman, who used the housing bust to buy 30,000 homes. From there, I homed in on a single house: a 834-foot bungalow in South L.A, where 5 members of the Trump administration had profited off personal pain and financial dispossession. After that, I investigated Steve Mnuchin’s OneWest Bank, and then broke news on modern-day redlining in 61 cities – including Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C.
