Katsumi Tada, a Japanese billionaire, has sold his Trump International Hotel and Tower apartment for $25 million.

The apartment was on the market for almost two years, and Tada sold it at a slight loss, having paid $26 million for it in 2008, according to the Wall Street Journal. He initially listed the unit in May 2016 for $40 million but cut the price multiple times.
