Donald Trump is making a killing as president. When he visited Houston after Hurricane Harvey made mincemeat of the city, he wore a cap emblazoned with “USA.” It just happened to be for sale for the low, low price of $40 in white, red, or camouflage. Once a salesman, always a salesman it seems, but that is not the tackiest package for sale in Trump world.
Trump Florida properties have opened up a whole new avenue of business geared toward 40 to 60 super rich Russian expectant parents per month. The Trump birth-tourism deal runs through several companies. SVM-MED is a Miami-based company marketing to Kiev and Moscow. It offers expectant Russian couples three different packages and dual citizenship for their newborns. Naturally, the most expensive packages involve Trump accommodations.
At a mere $84,700, the soon-to-be parents get a Trump II apartment complete with a “gold-tiled bathtub” and their choice of a chauffeured Mercedes-Benz or Cadillac Escalade, according to the Daily Beast. Then, there is Status-Med, which markets to expecting parents in both Miami and Moscow. The company offers couples a Trump Royale penthouse apartment for only $7,000 a month. Status-Med works hand-in-hand with the Sunny Medical Center, a clinic, adjacent to Trump’s properties.
Interestingly enough, one name has gained in popularity among the Russian couples. The owner of Status-Med Vera Muzyka said Russian couples prefer Trump properties,” according to the Daily Beast:
‘And also, the name Melania has become very popular.’
Another Florida company, Miami-Boom, markets to wealthy Ukrainian couples, offering condominiums “some of which, like Trump Towers, were created by American multi-billionaire Donald Trump himself!,” reported the Daily Beast. Expectant parents get a two-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom apartment at Trump Royale. “The same apartment is listed on other real-estate websites for $5,000 a month.”
Wealthy tourist Anatoliy Kuzmin was thrilled to receive his new daughter’s blue U.S. passport, and posted a photo of it and her blue Russian passport photo on Instagram, the Daily Beast reports:
‘Woohoo! Got dual citizenship for my daughter!’
Trump does not make his money off of the privately owned condo subleases. Instead, he cashes in when the near-parents enjoy his resorts. If only all children born in the U.S. had rich undocumented parents, then Trump would possibly feel differently about them.
