Donald Trump's Presidency as Branding Venture: The Scam Goes Even Deeper Than We Thought

http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/donald-trumps-presidency-branding-venture-scam-goes-even-deeper-we-thought


One of the odder events of 2016ís very odd presidential campaign was Donald Trumpís pilgrimage to an event held by the Republican Hindu Coalition in Edison, New Jersey, during the last weeks of the presidential campaign. Itís not as if he made other forms of outreach to small ethnic or religious minorities, and this appearance seemed particularly obscure for a campaign concentrated on big rallies in battleground states.

Well, we may know the primary reason now. It was revealed over the weekend that the president-elect has been holding Trump Organization business meetings during the transition, and one of his meetings was with Indian developers with whom he has some luxury apartment deals cooking in Mumbai. The New York Times reported:

ďWe will see a tremendous jump in valuation in terms of the second tower,Ē said Pranav R. Bhakta, a consultant who helped Mr. Trumpís organization make inroads into the Indian market five years ago. ďTo say, ĎI have a Trump flat or residenceí ó itís president-elect branded. Itís that recall value. If they didnít know Trump before, they definitely know him now.Ē


Somebody close to Trump must understand this isnít a good look:

Photos of Trump with Real Estate Partners from India are disappearing from view. No worries. We grabbed them. https://t.co/VlcCyldC05 pic.twitter.com/nBdOHXkned
