“Some of Trump’s businesses are now in crisis, facing sharp drops in revenue and an exodus of clients, lenders, lawyers and business partners. Now, sharks are circling.”
“The Washington Post spoke with four investors who said they are exploring efforts to buy Trump’s properties or the loans he has taken out on them. They believe Trump has fatally wounded his brand — a view shared by some independent analysts — and they are hoping he will cut his losses by selling them luxe properties for cheap.”
Well, the brand wasn’t exactly solid gold before, but now it is worthless to its target demographic of rich people (in NYC, for sure) who might aspire to plunk down a million+ ameros for a poorly built but gaudy trash palace in the sky.
Said one investor: “The first thing you do is you take the Trump name off them — which, by the way, could be a multiple-week effort, because it’s on everything. Once it’s gone, it’s a competitive asset.”
I dunno if that stink can ever be removed.
