15 Big Business Losses For Donald Trump

15-big-business-losses-for-donald-trump-so-far

Donald Trump, Oh Boy! What has he not done in his life? Not much, because this guy has gotten into any and everything ever since his daddy gave him some money way back in the 80's to get his hands on his first piece of commercial real estate. And since then, he has been getting in and out of trouble because of bad financial decisions and because of his mouth, while at the same time he has been making money hands over fists due to his moments of absolute genius. And since Donald Trump is Human, then you already know that he is not perfect. But because he is rich and a Billionaire, then you already also know that he is to be arrogant and a little out of touch. But with all that said, you have to agree that everyone is entitled to their own opinion based upon how he or she sees things, or how he or she has experienced something. And sure, you can say what Donald Trump thinks or says is not right, or is racist, or is out of touch, but at the end of the day he is allowed to have his views about Mexicans, about business, about God, about life etc. And since he is a public figure, then what he says does carry a lot of weight, and so this is why he has been suffering lately for his remarks about the Mexican People when he said: Mexico was “sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” “Some, I assume, are good people,” he added. And of course because of these remarks, many businesses (Who probably agree with him) that want to keep making money, are very quick to disassociate with  Donald Trump and break their contracts with him. 
And to be fair, think back to how many times you have made some bad comments at work, at home, around your friends, around your family about a particular group of people, or about a piece of news etc. But since you do not have that much clout, most of the people who heard your racist remarks, or your hateful or prejudice comments just ignored you. But since Donald Trump is out there, then he is being hung out to dry. And ask yourself how many other white people really do agree with him? Or how many white people agree with the police when they kill one more unarmed black teenager, or how many white people see Mexicans as just servants? Just food for thoughts... But to help you learn from Donald Trump mistakes so when you get on top you don't end up losing all that you have worked so hard for, this is why today I am sharing with you 15 Big Business Losses For Donald Trump So Far...

Here are the 15 major companies and individuals who have dropped Trump so far and counting:

1. Univision

Univision announced on June 25 it would not air the upcoming Miss USA pageant — whose parent organization is part-owned by Donald Trump — following his “insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants.”
“At Univision we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country,” the Spanish-language television network said in a statement.
The Miss USA pageant is slated to air on July 12. Univision added that it would not work on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.
Trump filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision claiming they violated their contract by not airing the pageant.
He also took to Twitter to accuse Univision of wanting him to back out of the pageant contract because “I exposed the terrible trade deals that the U.S. makes with Mexico.”

2. NBC Universal

NBC Universal, the company that airs Trump’s popular series The Celebrity Apprentice, as well as the Trump-owned Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants,ended its 12-year business relationship with Trump on June 29.
In a statement, the company said:
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC. In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. Celebrity Apprentice is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.”
In response, Trump called NBC “weak and foolish” to not understand “the serious illegal immigration problem” in the U.S. In a statement, he said their contract violating the closure of the beauty pageants would be determined in court.
“Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be,” he said.

3. Televisa

Televisa, the largest Spanish-language media company in the world, said it would no longer broadcast the Miss Universe pageant, calling it “unacceptable” to have ties with any Trump’s companies.
In a June 29 statement, Televisa said Trump “has not shown understanding and respect towards Mexican migrants and has offended the entire Mexican population.”
The company noted that Trump, far from apologizing from his statements, continued to attack immigrants.
“Televisa is not indifferent to these statements and strongly rejects all forms of discrimination, racism or xenophobia.”
The company, which owns Nuestra Belleza Mexico — the pageant that picks the Mexican equivalent of Miss USA — also said it wouldn’t send a representative to the Trump-owned Miss Universe contest this year.

4. Farouk Systems

The Houston-based company, which owns professional hair care brands CHI and Biosilk, announced the withdrawal of its sponsorship of Trump-owned Miss USA, Miss Universe, and Miss Teen USA pageants on June 29.
It also said it would no longer be involved in The Celebrity Apprentice.
In a statement, CEO Basim Shami, whose father Farouk Shami was a Palestinian immigrant in the U.S., said the company “does not agree with or endorse” Trump’s statements on immigrants.
“Our company is multicultural with people of Latin American descent making up a large percentage of our employees and loyal customers. As a company proudly founded on the concept of coming to the USA in pursuit of the American Dream, Mr. Trump’s comments do not and will never reflect our company’s philosophy or practices.”

5. Ora TV

On July 1, Macy’s said it would it no longer carry Donald Trump’s menswear line because it was “disappointed and distressed” by his comments.
“Macy’s is a company that stands for diversity and inclusion,” the company said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. “We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form. We welcome all customers, and respect for the dignity of all people is a cornerstone of our culture.”
Trump said he terminated their relationship because of “the pressure being put on them from outside sources.” He said Macy’s sale of his shirts and ties was only a small business “in terms of my dollar volume” and that he was never happy that the merchandise was being produced in China.

7. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio

On July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement that he is reviewing all of Trump’s contracts with New York City, owing to his “disgusting and offensive remarks” about immigrants.
“Trump’s comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers,” de Blasio said. “Our Mexican brothers and sisters make up an essential part of this city’s vibrant and diverse community, and we will continue to celebrate and support New Yorkers of every background.”
Trump sent a letter to de Blasio on July 9, saying the mayor should be thanking him instead of reprimanding him for “the great job we have done,” the New York Postreported.

8. Serta

NASCAR announced it would not hold its postseason awards ceremony for the Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series banquet at the Trump National Doral Miami resort this year, ESPN reported. The event was held at Trump’s resort last year.
NASCAR spokesperson David Higdon told reporters, “We looked at obviously everything that we saw coming down and what we heard from our sponsors and our partners and what we feel we should be doing, and that is what led us to the decision today.”
The decision came after the CEO of one of NASCAR’s biggest sponsors, Camping World, wrote a strongly worded letter to NASCAR’s chair refusing to participate in events at any of Trump’s properties “due to recent and ongoing blatantly bigoted and racist comments from Donald Trump in regards to immigrants of the United States.”
In his letter, Marcus Lemonis, a Lebanese immigrant, said, “Our company will not stand to support any person or organization that associates with such beliefs, and we feel strongly about distancing ourselves from any negative and discriminatory comments made against any gender, ethnicity, age group or so forth.”

10. ESPN

ESPN changed the venue for its ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic scheduled for July 14, from Trump National Golf Club to Pelican Hill Golf Club in Greater Los Angeles.
In a statement on July 6, ESPN said:
“We decided it was appropriate to change the venue, and are grateful for the opportunity to stage the event at Pelican Hill on short notice. This charity outing benefits The V Foundation’s Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund, providing resources for important cancer research for minority populations, including Hispanics and African Americans. Our decision reflects our deep feelings for our former colleague and support for inclusion of all sports fans. Diversity and inclusion are core values at ESPN and our decision also supports that commitment.”
Responding to ESPN’s decision, Trump told reporters, “It’s not a big deal. I haven’t even heard of that.”

Trump issued this statement responding to both ESPN and NASCAR canceling events at his hotels, stating that he profited from their “large deposits.”


11. Professional Golfers Association (PGA)

On July 7, the PGA of America announced that it would not hold the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf tournament at Trump National in Los Angeles, which was part ofa multiyear agreement between the PGA and the Trump Organization.
In a statement, the PGA said that after meeting with Trump, “the parties mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of all not to conduct the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National — Los Angeles.” The association said it was exploring options, including a venue for its annual PGA Junior League Golf Championship.
The decision came a week after the major golf bodies, including the PGA, issued a joint statement to the Golf Channel, distancing themselves from Trump’s comments.
The statement said:
“In response to Mr. Trump’s comments about the golf industry ‘knowing he is right’ in regards to his recent statements about Mexican immigrants, we feel compelled to clarify that those remarks do not reflect the views of our organizations.
“While the LPGA, PGA of America, PGA Tour and USGA do not usually comment on Presidential politics, Mr. Trump’s comments are inconsistent with our strong commitment to an inclusive and welcoming environment in the game of golf.”
Responding to the PGA’s decision, the Trump Organization said, “Due to the controversy surrounding statements made by Mr. Trump having to do with illegal immigrants pouring into the United States from Mexico and other parts of the world, Mr. Trump does not want his friends at the PGA of America to suffer any consequences or backlash with respect to the Grand Slam of Golf.”

The company, which is behind huge menswear brands including Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, told Forbes in a July 7 statement, “Mr. Trump and Macy’s have both addressed the discontinuation of the Trump business at Macy’s, which was the exclusive retail account for the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection dress shirt and neckwear collections produced under our license agreement for the brand.”
The company said the license agreement with Trump — which it entered in 2004 — was scheduled to run through 2018. “We are in the process of winding down this business,” PVH said.

13. Chef José Andrés

José Andrés, a D.C.-based celebrity chef with a burgeoning restaurant empire, backed out of a deal to open a Spanish restaurant in Trump’s upcoming hotel in the capital, the Washington Post reported on July 8.
Andrés, recognized as one of the most influential people in the world by Time, told the Post that Trump’s comments “disparaging immigrants” made it impossible for his company, ThinkFoodGroup, to move forward with the deal.
“More than half of my team is Hispanic, as are many of our guests,” Andrés said in a statement. “And, as a proud Spanish immigrant and recently naturalized American citizen myself, I believe that every human being deserves respect, regardless of immigration status.”
Andrés and his wife Patricia became American citizens in 2013 after 23 years in the country.
Donald Trump Jr.’s response indicated an impending and expensive lawsuit against Andrés for violating their 10-year contract which prevents him from opening a competing restaurant anywhere in D.C., the Post reported.
“Our relationship with José Andrés has always been a good one, but simply put, José has no right to terminate or otherwise abandon his obligations under the lease, ” Trump Jr. wrote in his statement.

14. Chef Geoffrey Zakarian

Geoffrey Zakarian, a New York–based chef and judge on Food Network’s Chopped, also dropped out of opening a restaurant in the upcoming Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
In a statement to BuzzFeed News on July 9, Zakarian said, “The recent statements surrounding Mexican immigrants by Donald Trump do not in any way align with my personal core values. In light of this, I am unable to move forward with a restaurant in the Trump International Hotel, slated to open in Washington, D.C.’s Federal Post Office building. Zakarian Hospitality employs many immigrants from nations all over the world, and I look forward to continuing this business culture in my future restaurants. We are a nation built from immigrants, my family included.”

15. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

The FAA said it would rename three Donald Trump–related flight coordinates along Palm Beach International Airport’s main departure routes.
The routes were named UFIRD (“you’re fired”), DONLD, and TRMPP in 2010 by an air traffic controller who was fan of Trump’s Celebrity Apprenticethe Sun Sentinelreported.
“In general, the FAA chooses names that are non-controversial and relate to the area in which the fixes are located,” the FAA told ABC News in a statement on July 9.
The updates would take several months to go into effect, the FAA said.
