The left wingers and anti-Trump brigade on here might be interested in this.

Last night there was an exclusive report on the well respected Australian investigative journalism program "Four Corners" ( ABC-TV )
about Trump and his business dealings in Bali and Java.

The story is a bit complicated and a bit of a "join the dots" exercise so you need to watch and listen carefully. I found some parts of this story to be quite alarming.

IMO, any Western politician should not be doing business with or even socializing with some of the individuals featured in last nights report ( leftovers from the very corrupt Suharto regime and possibly some with links to Islamist terror groups ) These Indonesian connections could really damage Trump in the long term.

The report is named "The Company He Keeps", reporter, Mark Davis. This report can not be classified as fake news as Four Corners is an unbiased, professional and objective program with world class researchers and reporters. This is not CNN or Fox News.

I think Mr Trump has been treated very unfairly by many in the media, but the report last night really does not paint him in a good light. Also, the proposed developments he is involved with in Indonesia are mega-projects and look terrible and will damage the fairly pristine environments where they will be built.

Four Corners, ABC Australia, this program should be available to view for free on ABC " Iview".
