Why Dubai retail stores suspended sale of all Donald Trump products
After proposing “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” this week, international revulsion against real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has taken aim at his wallet.
According to USAtoday.com, a $6 billion golf community under construction in Dubai is removing his name from the project.
Also, a Dubai-based holding company that operates a chain of retail stores called Lifestyle, said it would no longer carry a line of Trump items in stores across the Gulf.
The company’s CEO, Sachin Mundhwa, said the decision was based solely on the candidate’s controversial policy statements.
“In light of the recent statements made by the presidential candidate in the U.S. media, we have suspended sale of all products from the Trump Home décor range,” he said in a statement.
Trump Home branded products, luxury furnishing items, would be discontinued at over 160 Lifestyle stores across the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
