The art of the deal by used for 2.49 at Amazon
President Donald J. Trump lays out his professional and personal worldview in this classic work—a firsthand account of the rise of America’s foremost deal-maker.
You already lost the negotiation by raising your initial offer before they even made a counter offer. Withdraw the offer, you've already shown how bad you want the house and that you weren't serious with an offer. If you are going to lowball, you have to be convincing when you bluff and willing to walk away. You've done neither.
Maybe. Just maybe, if you withdraw the offer they may panic and come back with a slightly lower price offer to get you back in the game at which point you can go back and forth and try again, but unlikely. It doesn't sound like you and your realtor did a good job of setting them.
Read this classic about how to negotiate
> Where are you getting this master deal maker shit?
From Trump himself. He even claims to have written a book about it:
> How would I go about determining the value?
I wouldn't. I would listen to their offer, then refuse because regardless of their offer, it's not their best offer. negotiate from there. I would also read this book now
> waiting for good suggestions from our IR folks
The only book needed to make a country leader of the free world*
*Note that the country is France, not the country of the reader
If Trump hasn't divested from these businesses every dollar spent at a foreign establishment can be considered a bride. It's a matter for debate but until he proves he's divested it seems like a huge conflict of interest. But when has trump ever used a position of power for his own personal gain.
it's on Amazon ... not out of print or i'm insane in the membrane
>Decades of shady deals, and likely, blackmail.
In 1984, Russian mobster David Bogatin showed up and dropped $6 million for 5 condos in Trump Tower (some reports say it was 6 condos). Trump was at the closing personally.
In 1987, Bogatin pleaded guilty to “evading millions of dollars in state fuel taxes in what state officials called one of the largest gasoline bootlegging operations in the nation.” All five condos are seized by the government on the grounds that he used the purchase to launder money and shelter and hide assets.
A spokesman for the NY State Attorney General is quoted as saying that Bogatin was "part of a cartel of dishonest gas distributors that prosecutors believe operated under the direction of Michael Franzese, a reputed captain of the Columbo organized-crime family".
In 1987, Trump visited Moscow for the first time and began pursuing his vision to put a Trump-brand luxury hotel “across the street from the Kremlin”.
By 1990, Trump was holding $3.4 billion in debt, including $1.3 billion on the casinos and $830 million in loans personally guaranteed by Trump. Regulators warned that “the possibility of a complete financial collapse of the Trump Organization was not out of the question.”
In 1991, just over a year after it opened, Trump’s Taj Mahal was in bankruptcy; the casino owed $69.5 million to 253 contractors who helped build it.
In 1992, the Plaza Hotel and the Castle entered bankruptcy.
The same year, Russian mobster Vyacheslav Ivankov fraudulently obtained a visa to enter the US, came to New York, and bought a condo at Trump Tower.
According to law enforcement reports, Ivankov made frequent visits to Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. According to federal authorities, casinos are frequently used for laundering large sums of money.
According to an IRS settlement, Trump’s Taj Mahal repeatedly failed to properly report gamblers who cash out $10,000 or more in a single day, and the casino violated anti-money laundering rules 106 times in its first year and a half of operation, during the time Ivankov was visiting.
In 1995, Ivankov was arrested by the FBI for being the ringleader of an extortion plot in which two businessmen were kidnapped at gunpoint from a Manhattan hotel, and a father of one of the men was murdered in Moscow. In 2009, after being extradited to Russia to face murder charges, Ivankov was gunned down in a sniper attack on the streets of Moscow.
In 1995, Trump claimed a $916 million loss that could have allowed him to legally avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years. Reportedly, his credit took a significant hit and US banks became reluctant to lend him money.
In 1996, Trump made a second trip to Moscow, where he registered his trademark for Trump Tower.
In 1998, Trump began borrowing from Deutsche Bank. The first loan was for $125 million, and he was reportedly up to $2.5 billion as of 2016. In 2008, Trump had difficulty making payments on a $640 million loan – $40 million of which he guaranteed personally – taken out to finance Trump Tower in Chicago; he sued the bank for $3 billion, the bank counter-sued, and the case was ultimately settled. In 2017, Deutsche Bank was fined $630 million in penalties in connection with a Russian money-laundering scheme. In 2018, they were raided by German police investigating money laundering in connection to the Panama Papers. It’s reported that: “Trump has liabilities to banks and financial services firms of between $356.15 million and $480.35 million, including up to $175 million to Deutsche Bank U.S. and $150 million to Ladder Capital, a listed real estate investment trust.”
In 2000, Trump began going to a small upstart called the Bayrock Group for cash. Bayrock, headquartered in Trump Tower, was run by Russian immigrants with ties to the Russian mafia.
In 2002, Trump’s partner in the Trump Tower Toronto deal, Leib Waldman, was revealed as a wanted fugitive. Waldmand fled to Canada from the U.S. “after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud and embezzlement in 1995.” He is subsequently extradited to the U.S. and imprisoned.
In 2004, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, listing a debt of around $1.8 billion.
By this year, according Bloomberg “a third of units [in Trump World Tower] sold on floors 76 through 83... involved people or limited liability companies connected to Russia and neighboring states.”
In 2008 (context) Russian Dmitry Rybolovlev purchased of one of Trump’s mansions in Palm Beach, Florida for $95 million - which was $54 million more than Trump had paid just 4 years earlier.
The same year, Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. filed for bankruptcy, and Trump resigned as chairman of the board.
Starting the same year, Donald Trump Jr. visited Moscow six times in 18 months. Trump Jr. told reporters that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets […] we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
In 2010, Russian state-owned bank, Vnesheconombank, helped finance the struggling Trump Tower Toronto with an $850 million stake in a Ukrainian steel mill from the project's developer.
The same year, the Major Economics Crimes Bureau of the New York District Attorney’s office began investigating Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. over allegations that they misled buyers about the Trump SoHo project. The investigation was later dropped.
The same year, lenders foreclosed on 200-unit Trump Hollywood condo. Reuters identified 13 units in Trump Hollywood that were purchased by individuals with Russian passports or Russian addresses.
In 2013, Federal agents busted an “ultraexclusive, high-stakes, illegal poker ring” run by Russian gangsters out of Trump Tower. In addition to card games, they operated illegal gambling websites, ran a global sports book and laundered more than $100 million. A condo directly below one owned by Trump reportedly served as HQ for a “sophisticated money-laundering scheme” connected to Semion Mogilevich.
The same year, Trump Tweets about Putin becoming his new best friend.
In 2015, Trump officially announced his candidacy for president...
As a corollary Donald J. Trump once wrote a book without having a brain. It's exhausting, but it can be done.
It's almost like he read this book
>Donald Trump literally wrote the book on negotiating.
He had a ghost writer that did the work for him, and he had some rather unkind words about his former boss.

Here and, of course, here
here you go
I recommend this book for further reading:

Then one day finally managed to smash in a blue and never looked back x
No, they just read (Art of The Deal)[https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Art-Deal-Donald-J/dp/0399594493/ref=nodl_] before going into salary negotiations
Don't forget about this endless classic
Νομίζω όλα ξεκινούν από το αν νομίζεις ότι χρειάζεσαι βελτίωση ή όχι.
Μετά είναι η ποιότητα του βιβλίου:
Νομίζω ότι υπάρχουν ιδέες που χρειάζονται να ακούγονται περισσότερο και κόσμος που μπορεί να τις δώσει, όπως το να διαβάζεις έχει πολλά θετικά (οξύνει την κριτική σκέψη, φαντασία, κλπ).
Και να σου δώσω ένα παράδειγμα με ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο έκοψα το τσιγάρο το 2014 μετά από 10+ χρόνια καπνίσματος. Οπότε θα σου έλεγα ανάλογα.
You know what else is a crazy bit of fiction?
Maybe she should have read this book! /s
It could go in this shitty book
The Art of the Deal
Here is the physical cover of the book, which notes that it was written by "Donald Trump with Tony Schwartz". I can see that the Amazon page itself also only credits Trump, though, so my bad there.
My understanding is that the actual text of the book was written by Schwartz based on his interviews and shadowing of Trump. This is standard for ghostwriting but usually the identity of the ghostwriter is not public and Schwartz got half of all royalties for the book as well.
In that sense, I don't necessarily think that Trump disagrees with the book, but I also don't think he was the one who formulated the passage you quoted. How much of this text is Schwartz talking and trying to present negative qualities in a positive light and how much of it is Trump himself?
some books could definitely do with destruction
That is very interesting. Wonder what kind of history they have.
How he feels about Trump
Yes. Like how he did the first two times through the use of ghost writers like nigh on every politician in the last 100 years...
> I guess that depends on exactly what you mean by intelligence. To me, intelligence means the ability to understand things.
That is certainly part of it.
>But I don't think he understands why what he's doing works.
I think he understands it - at least well enough to write a book about his strategies and why they work. What I really thing is going on is YOU don't understand why what he is doing works. To you it looks chaotic and disorganized and lucky and 'he must be an idiot' or whatever... but he knows EXACTLY what he is doing.
I think it would do you good to read it (get it from a library if you don't want to support him - I don't care).
>Sure, he got himself elected president against the odds.
>But he also made some incredibly stupid moves that have a real possibility of destroying his administration.
Oh? See, YOU say this... but you aren't president nor do you have billions of dollars nor did you write a book about HOW you do things. I'll agree that the normal tv pundits will SAY that he has a 'real possibility of destroying his administration'.... but I think they are using a flawed analysis - the same flawed analysis that predicted his loss.
So what has he done that could possibly destroy his administration? Not just 'this think I disagree with' - but 'the thing that will cause him to be impeached'? Lets not forget that the democrats have called the articles of impeachment for EVERY republican president since Reagan (already did it once to Trump) with nothing to show for it... kind of a boy who called wolf.
Will it be forcing congress to create a law surrounding daca - will that destroy him? Will building a wall destroy him? How about the tax cuts - will those destroy his administration? Point to something - lets see it - what has he done that could possibly destroy his administration?
>And he really seems to have zero understanding of the issues he's supposed to be dealing with as president,
Hmmm, it is my impression that he has a fantastic understanding of the issues. You may not like his decisions, but they seem in line with someone who really does understand human psychology, the state of the world and the major players, and is pushing to get his agenda done.
> both from the things he says publicly and the leaks about what he's like behind closed doors.
Lesson 1: the tweets are meant for YOU. If you are on his side, they make for great comedy (both in themselves, and from the reaction from his opposition). If you are against him, they are MEANT to rile you up because the state of 'being riled' at tweets means you are NOT in a state to be effective about anything else. His tweets induce frustrated impotency in his opposition - and it is fucking hilarious!
Behold, the big button! How does that make you feel - are you giggling because it is absurdly funny, or are you angry because 'nuclear war'? How productive are you going to be today if you are angry about nukes (which isn't a serious possibility) vs having a little laugh? Are you going to spend the next hour enraged on twitter? I've seen a lot of salt this past year from his opposition - all those negative emotions and rage every day for a year... why? So they can be miserable all year? For me, enjoying the laugh is far better than soaking in rage.
Lesson 2: the 'leaks' behind closed doors don't harm him. He has largely figured out now who the leakers are, and I think at this point he intentionally feeds them mis-information so that he can call out fake news the next day. If you heard it from an 'anonymous whitehouse official'... it is most certainly bullshit.
Well, this family does have a history of poorly written books.
I do not suggest Paperback version if you want to collect, really bad print quality.

Or you could always get him a copy of The Art of the Deal, if he doesn't already have one.
Art of the deal if you haven't heard of it.
Please read The Art of the Deal.
by the book, no really go buy it! ^^*I_Agree_With_Ya
Here's the book.
How is that a lie with damaging intent? Trump has brought the unemployment rate of African Americans down to the lowest point in American history. That’s pretty great to me.
Sure, some of these might be hypocritical of him, and everybody knows he exaggerates everything, but none of these examples show DAMAGING INTENT.
Trump hasn’t broken 3% GDP, that’s right, but that’s also not a damaging lie , and according to tradingeconomics.com
“GDP in the United States averaged 7456.57 USD Billion from 1960 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 21427.70 USD Billion in 2019”
You obviously have no idea how debt works if you think it’s magically going to stop.
Even more ironic, if you decide to support Biden (Which you haven’t claimed to, but just saying) he’d love to give 11 million illegal aliens free healthcare. Which, surprise! Brings debt.
According to factcheck.org:
The economy added 6.7 million jobs, and unemployment fell to the lowest rate in half a century.
The economy grew more slowly than Trump promised — at a 2.1% rate most recently.
Stock prices hit record levels.
Household income grew; poverty decreased, and paychecks grew 2.5% after inflation.
Home prices reached record levels; homeownership increased.
Federal deficits soared, adding $2 trillion to national debt.
^ Information from January 2020, before COVID.
With Covid he was trying to not stir chaos throughout the country. Obviously it was taken the wrong way and he admitted to his mistake.
As for Herman Cain, according to CNN
”It is unknown where Cain contracted the virus (Covid)”
GDP is at -30% because we’re in a pandemic and people don’t have expendable capital to spend. unemployment rate is above 8% because of businesses suffering from a fucking global pandemic, not Trump
“And you most certainly” don’t have any common sense and if anybody can’t think for themselves, it’s you. Maybe try reading a book.
Is that not research?
If I have said it once I have said it a thousand times: Trump got them answers !
Trump: Build that wall
Mexico: No can do
Trump: walks out
>And btw, can you teach me some of your negotiation tactics?
The only book your need to read.

Since you seem to be interested, heres the amazon link for his book https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Art-Deal-Donald-J/dp/0399594493
Please point out where I brought up race. Try and make an argument without blindly accusing people of racism. As for Trump's ability to make deals, I highly recommend you read this book.
I'll just leave this here!
Here's a link to it: https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Art-Deal-Donald-J/dp/0399594493/
A) Addressing one's name and making fun of a physical characteristic are not in the same. Isn't the left supposed to be accepting of everyone and their "body image"?
B) Most people shorten it to DJT and he also embraces his middle initial himself. He even places his middle initial on the books he has authored.
Why? Because it's his name and he's proud of it. Why does Barry feel the need to hide his full name?
It's called <em>The Art of the Deal</em>
It's been out for years. Look I don't like Donny either, but come on man this is just pathetic.
You're probably right, but I don't assume a book about business dealings would have a "morally reprehensible main character" especially considering this was ghost written.
Read the reviews: https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Art-Deal-Donald-J/dp/0399594493
If it was really "reprehensible" then there would be something on it, yes?
Eh you guys are fucking jerk offs. Find something to talk about that isn't Trump.
