Woman With Chinese Government Connections Bought Jared And Ivanka’s Penthouse

Forbes - 01-17


When the Trump Organization sold a Manhattan penthouse in February 2017, the transaction immediately sparked controversy since the buyer, a woman named Angela Chen, runs a business peddling access to Chinese officials and allegedly has ties to Chinese military intelligence. If her goal was to cozy up to the Trumps, she appears to have gotten even closer than previously believed: It turns out the penthouse Chen purchased was not simply a random unit that Trump’s company retained when he developed the building, but the former personal residence of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
