I found the alleged $2 Billion offer to be very interesting indeed. Especially when you take into account Trump's proclivity for saying out loud outrageous things he later does.

“Hussein, Damac, a friend of mine, a great guy. I was offered $2bn to do a deal in Dubai, a number of deals, and I turned it down,” Trump said in 2017.


We also can see the hidden finances driving Trump Media. I once made the remark that Dubai, among others, was a place to look for Trump's off-shore cash. I am not surprised to find that I was on the money in that statement. It may also explain why he seems so blasé about the cash he is supposed to pay in the Financial Fraud case.
