Note: This episode is an excerpt from the podcast Trump Inc. from WNYC and ProPublica.

When he was a businessman Donald Trump borrowed money often. But after his businesses defaulted on a bunch of those debts, it became harder for him to borrow from many banks.

But there was one bank that didn't run away. It leaned in. That bank is Deutsche Bank.

Right now House democrats are trying to get Deutsche to hand over bank records that are connected to Trump.

It's a conflict that's been playing out in the news, but the details can get pretty confusing. So we have decided to run an excerpt of the podcast Trump Inc. from WNYC and ProPublica that lays out the long relationship between the Trump family and Deutsche Bank.
