Donald trump, the biggest the real estate mogul in New York, has his eyes set on a new acquisition target — the New York Giants. Sources close to the Trump Organization have leaked reports of talks between Trump and current Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch. With expanded revenue for NFL teams and organizations, it only makes sense that a businessman like Trump would want to get involved in what is rapidly becoming one of the biggest businesses in the world.
Trump, once called the “Zeus of the Earth” because he seemed to control all the real estate that he wished, was reported to be seen weekly in the Giants front office pitching himself to general manager Jerry Reese. These reports were first leaked by insiders Rick Tomlinson and Michael Astley. Apparently the zealous Trump succeeded in getting the meeting with Mara and Tisch, as they are reportedly in deep talks.
Rick Tomlinson recently tweeted: “@realDonaldTrump Any confirmations on recent talks with NY Giants about possible new ownership?” The next day, Trump sub-tweeted this, quoting a sports player to make it even more obvious.
