In a YouTube video of the launch of Trump Luxe in Vancouver, Tiah and Ivanka Trump are interviewed about the art of the deal. But the flow of foreign money from the developer or worldwide condo buyers could also the cause of the scrutiny.

"Defensive weapons are not provocative unless you're an aggressor, and clearly, Ukraine is not an aggressor, since it's their own territory where the fighting is happening", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said past year during a trip to Kiev. Previously, the USA has provided Ukraine with support equipment and training, and has let private companies sell some small arms like rifles.

The Government of Ukraine has requested to buy two hundred ten (210) Javelin Missiles and thirty-seven (37) Javelin Command Launch Units (CLUs) (includes two (2) Javelin CLUs to be used as spares).

The Javelin is considered a "fire and forget" weapon, with internal infra-red guidance system that allows the missile to zoom skyward and plunge downward into lighter armor on the top of a tank.

Both the Obama and Trump administrations had expressed concerns in the past that injecting more weapons into the conflict was unlikely to resolve it, especially considering that Russian Federation is well-equipped to respond to any Ukrainian escalation with an even stronger escalation of its own. The Trump administration has insisted those sanctions will stay in place until Moscow gives up the Crimean Peninsula.
