Business Deals Donald Trump Has Lost Since June

Via FORTUNE Magazine:

Univision deal

Univision, the largest Spanish-language television broadcaster in the United States, announced that in response to these comments about Mexicans, it would not air the 2015 Miss USA Pageant. Furthermore, it would sever ties with Miss Universe Organization co-owner Donald Trump.


NBC deal

The fallout for the 2015 Miss USA Pageant didn’t end with Univision. On June 29, NBC cut ties with Trump and canceled plans to air both the Miss USA Pageant and the Miss Universe Pageant, both joint ventures with the real estate mogul.

Macy’s deal

Just two days after Univision and NBC cut ties with Trump, Macy’s  announced that it would discontinue its Donald Trump line of menswear in response to his comments. Macy’s had carried the clothing line since 2004, and Trump had appeared in television advertisements for the store.

Dubai deal

On December 9, hot on the heels of his proposal to ban all Muslim immigration into the United States, CNN reported that the Dubai-based retaile, LIfestyle,r had announced a ban on all of the Trump-branded home d├ęcor products in all 195 of its stores.


Turnberry deal

When Trump bought the legendary Scottish golf course known as Turnberry in 2014 for a rumored $60 million, he did so with the highest of hopes, that in 2020 the course would host the Open Championship. Also known as the Open and the British Open, it all means one thing – one of the major championships in professional golf, and a coup for any course that hosts it.

Until very recently, those with the inside track had said that the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the sport’s governing authority outside of the U.S., would probably hold the 2020 tournament at Trump Turnberry. However, after he had some harsh words for Muslims, Mexicans, women and China, that appears extremely unlikely,
