"The lenders are following social media outlets and other companies in suspending ties with the president," reported Bloomberg.

"Deutsche Bank has faced scrutiny over its ties to Trump throughout his presidency," said the news service. "It was so concerned about its exposure after his election, it considered restructuring the loans but ultimately decided not to do new business with him during his presidency.
