i'm not watching or buying anything trump anymore

I used to watch Celebrity Apprentice, and i've bought other Trump items in the past. No more. With his vendetta against the President, trump's twitter messages after the election (silence with the news that Democrats had more votes in the House yet less seats), his birther theories, his son's killing of a big cat in a foreign country, trump's love affair with the repug party, i'm done giving him any of my money.

i'm not spending or doing anything that will further enrich trump.

1. Same

Need ratings to go down and profits on his brands to dwindle

The only thing he responds to is money

3. You forgot to mention Trump's destruction of the Scottish coastline

when he built his version of St. Andrews golf course, and his attempts to evict landowners who wouldn't sell to him via eminent domain.

6. I don't think he got that done,

because of those landowners...one of whom was just voted the most popular man in Scotland for this year (pretty good considering Andy Murray was in the running too).

4. I've gleefully despised everything he's done for years

so boycotting all things Trump comes naturally to me.

I never saw the allure of "The Apprentice." One thing I have studiously avoided all my life is the world of corporate strategizing to achieve the top of the corporate dungheap.

If I was going to work around a dungheap, let it be real dung, so I became a night nurse.

5. Do you have a comprehensive list of (t)Rump businesses?

I too will eschew All Things Trump, and although there is zero likelihood that I will ever set foot in one of his casinos, I'd like to rest assured that I never enrich that specimen - even unintentionally.

10. If that's all there is to his 'empire'

then I'm in good shape. Nothing in the way of hairpieces or varmint-pelt tanneries, I assume?
