Trump said: “We have a lot of their money. There is $35 billion in an account.” Chattel’s quote: “My read/take is that Trump said that there is 35 billion dollars in an account belonging to Iraq. That does not mean to me that there is 35 trillion IQD in an account.” You are quite right, the accounts show investments held by the CBI in foreign banks, these investments would not be IQD but local currency.¬†Figures are from 2018 accounts and in millions of IQD, so assets to the value of approx 38T IQD in the Bank of New York.
