Trump hurting his own sales

After he doubled down on his declarations that Mexicans were “criminals and rapists,” a number of [Donald Trump's] business partners cut ties and sent shock-waves through his already-shaky “business empire.” Now that he’s decided he wants to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, his business partners in the Muslim world, who have made Trump millions, are furious and beginning to cut their own ties to rambunctious demagogue.

Arabian Business has reported that the regional retail powerhouse Landmark Group has stopped selling Trump’s products in over 160 stores from Libya to Pakistan.

The Dubai-based firm signed a deal in February this year to sell items from the Trump Home collection to customers in the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia through its Lifestyle outlets. However, the group said  it would now remove all products from its shelves.
