A New York Times investigation into Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s US real-estate holdings revealed that companies he owns have at least $650 million in debt — twice the amount that Trump’s public filings, made as part of his campaign, show.

Trump’s dealings also depend on a variety of sources, one of which he has repeatedly attacked during his campaign: China, The Times found.
