Deutsche Bank has come under fire for loaning Trump $2billion over a period of decades before he became president

A former Deutsche Bank executive who signed off on several controversial loans to Donald Trump killed himself in his Malibu home earlier this month.

Thomas Bowers, 55, hanged himself on November 19 at his beachside home. The banker was not working for Deutsche Bank at the time.

He is among a handful of people who signed off on loans totaling $2billion to Trump in the decades before he became president, even after other institutions turned him down.

Bowers’ wife Abigail died in 2017. The couple had three children together.

He was the head of the American wealth-management division at one time and oversaw Rosemary T. Vrablic, Trump’s private banker.

Bowers is understood to have left the bank in 2015.

His most recent known position was on the board of directors at Opus Bank, which he left in 2018.
