Donald Trump's Branding Dumped From $6 Billion Golf Project in Dubai Due to His Bigoted Stance On Muslims
By John Bacon
A $6 billion golf community being built in Dubai is going forward minus the "Trump" brand.
Reuters reports that DAMAC properties had said it would stand by Donald Trump amid backlash from his proposal to ban Muslims from traveling to the U.S. But on Thursday the GOP presidential candidate's name and image were removed from the "Akoya by DAMAC" site.
Real estate isn't the only branding problem for Trump in Dubai. Lifestyle, a home-decor store chain based there, said Wednesday it was removing all Trump-branded products from its 195 stores across the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere in the region.
Lifestyle cited "recent statements in the U.S. media," CNN reported. DAMAC provided no explanation, Reuters said.
